    Two songs from British rock bands covered by contestants Tom Ross, a French rocker, and Alyah Lukunku, a Belgian teenager and daughter of Congolese footballer Ali Lukunku, on The Voice this past weekend on TF1 have entered the iTunes all-genres Top Singles chart in France Monday morning chart positions: #5 Creep - Radiohead [Peaked at #2 on Sunday] #40 Unintended - MUSE [Peaked at #17 on Sunday] Thom Yorke is said to have written 'Creep' while attending Exeter University in the late 1980's, where he studied art and literature and played a few shows with his pre-Radiohead band Headless Chickens. Matt wrote 'Unintended' at age 19 in Teignmouth (population 15,000) located about 20 km (12 miles) south of Exeter (population 130,000). During 1989-90 Matt, Dom and Chris were all attending Teignmouth Community College after their families had recently moved to Devon, Chris Martin front man for Coldplay and born in nearby Whitestone was attending Exeter Cathedral School and formed his first band The Rocking Honkies, and as noted above Thom Yorke was soon to graduate Exeter University and sign a record deal with EMI/Parlophone in 1991. The three rock bands later formed by these five English lads with Devon connections have sold over 130 million albums worldwide, grossed around US$2 billion in career concert ticket sales and won 15 GRAMMY Awards. The combined net worth of these three bands is estimated in the range of £550-600 million (US$800 million).
