I can’t believe I’m doing this to myself, but…
Having once spent several years of my life saying Radiohead were a bunch of overhyped bores with fake suicidal tendencies, I then had to admit they were not entirely without talent. In fact, even the patchy Pablo Honey is not without its certain awkward charm.
Overall: mopey but adventurous. These are five of their best songs.
#5. “You Never Wash Up After Yourself”
Shows that Radiohead have a sense of humour. From My Iron Lung EP. That chord progression never fails.
“Paranoid Android”? “Karma Police?” “Airbag”? No. This is the best song from OK Computer.
#3. “Everything In Its Right Place”
Pure aural bliss. However, if you want to laugh, here’s the most embarrassing review in the history of the universe. Those silly twats.
#2. “Street Spirit (Fade Out)”
I never much cared for The Bends (having heard it after the age of 18), but nobody can deny the sheer hypnotism of its last track.
#1. “A Wolf At The Door”
Dance you fucker.
