Genre: Ambient, Piano
About: This is very unusual in my opinion for many reasons.
1. I despise Radiohead with a burning flame of 1000 suns. Overrated mediocre mainstream as #(*$ band. Don't even get me started.
2. This is a metal blog, and this song is as far from metal as humanly possible. However, when you really think about it, it's not all that different from something like Trist(Ger), which is ambient/atmospheric "metal"... debatable how "metal" some of those songs are.
3. Moby is an electronic artist... But this song is simply a piano line and very calm vocals... which are both very uncharacteristic of Moby. He even clears his throat at one point, leading me to believe this was a very quick, once-through recording. But it's beautiful. I may have to give Radiohead a second chance if the original is this great. (No idea what year this was recorded so i put 2009)
