Radiohead – Creep

“Creep” is a song by the English alternative rock band Radiohead. Radiohead released “Creep” as their debut single in 1992, and it later appeared on their first album, Pablo Honey (1993). During its initial release, “Creep” was not a chart success. However, upon re-release in 1993, it became a worldwide hit. Attendees of Radiohead’s early gigs often exhibited little interest in the band’s other songs, causing the band to react against “Creep” and play it less often during the mid-to-late 1990s. In 1998, halfway through their OK Computer tour, the band dropped the song from set lists altogether. “Creep” was not played live again until 2001, but it has since reappeared several times on the band’s live sets.

Amped

Is an Xbox exclusive snowboarding video game. It is the first of the Amped video game series.
Released during the Xbox’s launch, Amped is a snowboarding game focused on the tricks, instead of the racing style of play given by Electronic Art’s SSX which launched with the PlayStation 2 in the previous year. The success of Amped was solidified by the successful launch of the sequels, Amped 2 and Amped 3.
The game is also well known for helping to launch the career of pop punk band Yellowcard due to the soundtrack in-game soundtrack consisting of the complete One for the Kids album on it. The videogame also contains three songs from band Ink & Dagger’s album The Fine Art of Original Sin. In 2005, former drummer Ryan McLaughlin sued Microsoft, claiming that they were used without the band’s knowledge. The suit was settled out of court in 2006.

Iris

“Iris” is a song by American alternative rock band the Goo Goo Dolls. Originally written for the soundtrack of 1998 film City of Angels, the song was later included on the band’s sixth album Dizzy Up the Girl. “Iris” has contributed greatly to the band’s success.

The instrumentals in the song are heavily driven by guitar riffs, mandolin, violins, and cellos, with a steady drum beat beneath. The acoustic guitar in the song gives a distinctive sound as it is in an odd tuning, with 5 of the 6 strings tuned to D. This gives a ringing effect similar to a 12-string guitar.
John Rzeznik was approached to write a song for the City of Angels soundtrack, and the end product was “Iris”. This song propelled the band to stardom, as it stayed on top of Billboard Hot 100 Airplay charts for a record-breaking 18 weeks, and was nominated for three Grammys that year. According to several interviews with Rzeznik, he was experiencing serious bouts of writer’s block when he was approached, and was on the verge of quitting the band days before he wrote the song that would launch the band to worldwide fame. Iris is set to re-enter the UK charts at number 1, following performances by two X-Factor finalists, which has helped to put the band back into the consciousness of the British public.

The music video, directed by Marcos Siega, was shot in Nashville, Tennessee, on March 2 and March 3, 2008. MTV2 released the official music video on March 24, 2008. The music video shows the band playing in a living room with clips of a relationship of two lovers (Aaron Holmes of Death in the Park and Jenna Galing, both from Richmond VA) and a small gathering of the band’s friends and family. The friends and family are having a good time taking pictures, talking, and listening to music. The two lovers seem to be very much in love with each other. One of the lovers seems to be connected to one of the band members. The two soon go to the gathering where the boy meets someone (maybe an ex-girlfriend) and starts to flirt with her. As the boy continues to spend more time with the other girl, his girlfriend sits on a near couch watching them. As soon as they start holding hands, the girlfriend leaves and starts crying. The end shows the two lovers taking a picture of themselves kissing on a cell phone (before they separated) and all the people rushing out the living room, knocking over the couch and leaving a record spinning.
