1993 all over again: 16 - Radiohead

16. Radiohead - Creep

Back when Radiohead's fate seemed to be defined by a large pile of cassingles marked down to 10p each, in a dumpbin under the main racks, it was Creep that sustained them. This number 16 placing was all the more remarkable as the song had made it to number four in the 1992 list, on its first, mostly overlooked, release. (I think this might make it the only single to have been in the NME SOTY list two years running.)
