Finding Radiohead in Unexpected Places

Recently, I noticed the use of Radiohead songs in two different places... (my apologies if either has already been mentioned):

-In the movie "Unfaithful" (sorry, don't remember which part of the movie), a piano version of "Exit Music (For a Film)" plays in the background.

-In the song "The Blower's Daughter" by Damien Rice (also known as the main song from the movie 'Closer'), singer Lisa Hannigan chimes in toward the end of the song and sings for maybe 20 seconds... the melody that she sings is more or less a dead-ringer for the verses of "No Surprises."

Anyone else notice these / have an opinion?
