Even the name is an appropriation with a little twist. What else should folks expect?

Beck does this same thing, but he's more prolific. I don't see as many complaints with him, except maybe on the song Jackass.

Isn't that soo bizarre?  Rock to Let It Be... so much happened between the two.

I hope you never come to this: I lost the X-wife to the tune of Radiohead "Hail To The Thief" album which I listened to with my daughter over and over, on the way to Coachella. Now, 10 years on- very happily remarried, and all-is-cool- I still can't listen to  "Backdrifts- Honeymoon is Over" without feeling a little seasickness. Yea, that song "captured it all"  I suppose you could say.

Agreed on all accounts. I acquired several of their works hoping for more output like this but found nothing equal to this and with a few exceptions found it mostly disposable...

From the Stones to this cannot be a coincidence, right? But hey, it's a really "likable" Bohemian song.....even if they are taking the Mickey out of it.

In fact, the entire song seems to have been constructed around that riff rip-off - almost as if they used to cover the stones before writing original material...

 
Like Keith Richards never lifted a riff?
