i was listening to the song Faust Arp, and i felt like i had heard it before, i couldnt exaclt remember where, so i went through my music library and i found it. A Pillow of Winds-Pink Floyd off the album Meddle. man these songs sound almost EXACTLY alike. I think radiohead must have listened to this song, added some violins and changed the lyrics, and there you have Faust Arp. My guess is not many people here have heard the song A Pillow of Winds by Pink Floyd. I suggest getting the entire album Meddle, it is definatly Pink Floyds most underapreciated album, great acoustic work by david gilmour.
That's strange.. I would expect Radiohead to not copy someone else's work. Are the lyrics connected in any way?
theyre the exact same chords, the radiohead version is faster and in a slighly higher key, the exact same monotone voice. Both lyrics are about being in bed (pillow of winds is about going to sleep FA is about waking up) iwht a loved one. So yea theyre kinda connected. I posted this int he radiohead thread by theway.
