Radiohead has pushed the boundaries of rock music with album after album. They are able to walk that line between full-out experimentation and general accessibility probably better than anyone. But blah, blah, blah, you already know all the reasons why you love Radiohead, so let’s get down to brass tax.
And don’t just hate, tell us what we missed.
Top 5 Radiohead Songs
1. “Kid A” on Kid A
Delicate, seemingly limitless, robotic but still emotive.
2. “No Surprises” on OK Computer
“Such a pretty house and such a pretty garden,” and such a pretty song.
3. “High and Dry” on The Bends
Just gorgeous and the moment I realized, “Damn, this band’s for real ya’ll.”
4. “There There” on Hail to the Thief
Bring on the thoms (c’mon!), this song is eerie and spectacular and was a true highlight when seeing them live.
5. “All I Need” on In Rainbows
An agonizing plea and the most redemptive moment on In Rainbows.
