I never realized that Radiohead's Creep is virtually the same as The Hollies 1974 hit song The Air That I Breathe written by Albert Hammond and Mike Hazlewood.  The original publishers sued and won.  From Wikipedia:  "The 1992 Radiohead song "Creep" uses a similar chord progression and shares some melodic content with the original 1972 version of "The Air That I Breathe". As a result, the song's publisher sued Radiohead for copyright infringement and a settlement was reached in which Hammond and Hazlewood were given co-writing credits as well as a portion of the royalties".  You can listen to the similarities here:  youtube.com/watch?v=0XbogWA-riU
