[photogallerylink id=56062 align=left] [lastfm]Thom Yorke[/lastfm] comes under fire from the ever vengeful Liam Gallagher (ex-[lastfm]Oasis[/lastfm], now [lastfm]Beady Eye[/lastfm]) for being inspired by a tree. (Don’t worry, his bark is worse than his bite.) But Radiohead are not the only musicians moved by our leafy friends:
[lastfm]Liam Gallagher[/lastfm] has laid into [lastfm]Radiohead[/lastfm] for writing music “about a f—ing tree” on their new album saying, “I heard that fucking Radiohead record ['The King Of Limbs'] and I just go, ‘What?!’” he said. “I like to think that what we do, we do f—ing well. Them writing a song about a fucking tree? Give me a f—ing break! A thousand year old tree? Go f—k yourself!”
- “A Forest” by the [lastfm]Cure[/lastfm]. If Robert Smith sings in the forest, does anyone applaud?
- “The Trees” by [lastfm]Rush[/lastfm]. War in the tall timber prog-rock style!
- “The Trees Are Testifying” by [lastfm]Peter Himmelman[/lastfm]. (Without a subpoena.)
- “Old Oak Tree” by [lastfm]Lil’ Ed and the Blues Imperials[/lastfm]. A band firmly rooted in the blues.
- “I Shall Not Be Moved” by [lastfm]Johnny Cash[/lastfm] (and many others.) An old slave spiritual about standing your ground.
- Anything by [lastfm]Screaming Trees[/lastfm] or the [lastfm]Oak Ridge Boys[/lastfm] or [lastfm]Vic Chestnut[/lastfm]…
