Stay tuned. thinks that Thom Yorke is one of the top 5 singers ever. Ever. This was in response to Q magazine naming their top singers (and worst) ever recently. Thom is joined by other legends, such as Frank Sinatra, Aretha Franklin, Dusty Springfield, and Billie Holliday.

Speaking of Thom, there is a very cool video of someone drawing him, and then speeding it up and setting it to music. Check it out.

And finally, a rapper named Plan B has sampled “Analyse” by Thom Yorke. The song is called “Couldn’t Get Along…” and you can hear it at his MySpace.

“Harrowdown Hill” at SXSW

Thom Yorke’s video for “Harrowdown Hill” will be screened at this year’s SXSW Festival in Austin, Texas. Here are the deets:

10:30 PM, Saturday March 10th – Dobie
11:30 AM, Saturday March 17th – Dobie
Director: Chel White
Cast: Thom Yorke, David Russo
Format: HDCam
While Harrodown Hill is based on the controversial suicide case of British scientist and weapons inspector David Kelly, the video does not reference the case literally but rather does so through metaphor and symbolic imagery. White’s video is a quietly intense call to consciousness in an age of disinformation, preemptive war and unprecedented governmental secrecy.

Of course, you don’t need to go to Austin to see this video. It’s been out for some time and can be seen at YouTube.
