By now you’ve no doubt heard this bizarro rendition of Radiohead’s classic 1993 breakthrough smash playing throughout the trailer and television spots for this fall’s must-see film The Social Network, and it has finally been made commercially available stateside (presumably after phenomenally high demand). Having previously given this divinely dreamy treatment to such classics as Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit,” Coldplay’s “Yellow,” and even the Divinyls’ “I Touch Myself” (!), Scala — a globally renowned choir consisting of two hundred-plus girls and led by brothers Stijn and Steven Kolacny — dig below the surface here and unearth an unexpected (albeit slightly spooky), almost flippantly charming slant from beneath the icy veneer of Thom Yorke’s chilling words.
