    Creep-Radiohead- Three Versions.

    • The original version (1992)

    When you were here before
    Couldn't look you in the eye
    You're just like an angel
    Your skin makes me cry
    You float like a feather
    In a beautiful world
    I wish I was special
    You're so fucking special
    But I'm a creep
    I'm a weirdo
    What the hell am I doing here?
    I don't belong here
    I don't care if it hurts
    I want to have control
    I want a perfect body
    I want a perfect soul
    I want you to notice when I'm not around
    You're so fucking special
    I wish I was special

    • The unplugged version by Korn (2006)

    Rolling in the Deep by Adele - Three versions.

    There's a fire starting in my heart
    Reaching a fever pitch, it's bringing me out the dark
    Finally I can see you crystal clear
    [Clean version:] Go 'head and sell me out and I'll lay your ship bare
    [Explicit version:] Go 'head and sell me out and I'll lay your shit bare
    See how I leave with every piece of you
    Don't underestimate the things that I will do
    There's a fire starting in my heart
    Reaching a fever pitch
    And it's bringing me out the dark

    A few days ago, Aretha Franklin released a new cover of this song. 
    The live version without any hint of autotune is much better. There is even an extract of "Ain't No Mountain High Enough!"
