1. The National Anthem
2. Paranoid Android
4. The Bends
All I Need has to be in there somewhere, shurely
My favourites vary. Let Down and Reckoner usually feature though.
There are many superbly written ones like Paranoid Android, Everything In It's Right Place, Idioteque, The National Anthem, There There etc. I really love that ambient track Treefingers on Kid A too which is unlike any Radiohead track prior or since. But peak Radiohead was always The Bends for me so if I had to do a Top 5 if would be:
1. Fake Plastic Trees
2. High & Dry
4. My Iron Lung
5. True Love Waits (but only the mid-nineties live version, not the one on A Moon Shaped Pool)
Iirc, it was How to Disappear Completely, in an episode of The Honourable Woman, really brought me back to this band. Awesome.
Exit Music (For a Film)
Jigsaw Falling Into Place
Standard dislaimer: no particular order and subject to regular changes.
Some tracks for me only work live. Idioteque for example. Easily of of their best live tunes. Also some of Yorke's solo tracks from The Eraser are easily up there with the best Radiohead tunes.
OK Computer had exceptional songwriting and often gets lauded as their best album but it just lacked the oomph of The Bends, which itself was a vastly better produced, and written album than Pablo Honey.
Both points are valid for Atoms For Peace too IMO.
Much of Hail To The Thief only really worked live.
I forgot Pyramid Song, Planet Telex, Lucky, You And Whose Army and like a shitload of others
Yeah I saw them tour that album. Possibly the best gig of theirs I've ever seen was on that tour. Up there with the South Park gig in Oxford.
Why will no two live performances of The National Anthem ever be same?
They use a live radio instead of samples.
Johnny tunes into a local station
It's also another track which is vastly better performed live.
Here is my 2x5:
How to Disappear Completely
Fake Plastic Trees
Sail to the Moon
Wonder what would happen if he tuned into a station that was broadcasting the gig itself?
Probably a negative reality inversion
never ever got into them but I did like this from The Prestige soundtrack
A negative inversion would technically be a reversion.
Subterranean Homesick Alien
Street Spirit (Fade Out)
I'll probably give you a different answer tomorrow. I fucking love Radiohead.
I have four that are untouchable.
In no particular order:
New Radiohead just released...
