Title: Radiohead
Post by: Zip on December 07, 2006, 02:14:52 pm

I can't believe it.
No active Radiohead thread.
We can't have a music board without a brilliant Radiohead thread, now can we? ;)

So, this should be it. Share the Thom York and company-love. They truly deserve it.

Thom is such an inspiration. I remember having a hard time swallowing Kid A and Amnesiac. But it is worth all of the time listening to it. Soooo brilliant. But I still like the more "rock albums" the most. I mean, is there even a boring moment on OK Computer?

I could ramble all day about Radiohead. One of the most brilliant bands out there. No doubt about it.

Right? :D

I heard the song Karma Police and I really liked it.. are there other Radiohead songs in the charts? I might have heard them aswel...

Aaeehhmm....in charts...maybe Exit Music? It is from the same album, very famous as well. It was the song that ended the modern version of Romeo and Juliet, if you have seen that (With Leo and Claire Danes). And Fake Plastic Trees is well known, I guess. Not to mention Creep.

I am very far from an expert but I love the first album especially 'Anyone can play guitar' and 'Creep'. I don't care how many times Creep is played on the radio it is still a mind blowing record.

I adore "Anyone can play guitar", I find it so optimistic! I actually have been thinking about having that song in my funeral. But let's not get depressed here ;).

I don't think "Creep" has been overplayed, but it kinda bother me that so many people don't seem to understand how serious and painful that song is. It must have been hard for Thom having his very private and painful emotions put out there, becoming "popular". If you know what I mean.
Did you know that "Creep" was recorded during rehearsal? No one really thought about recording it, and the band was only playing around, not knowing th whole thing was being recorded. So the fuzz Ed does with his guitar in each chorus was his way of trying to mess up the song, cause he hated it. Go figure.

God, imagine being able to come up with something so brilliant as 'Creep' just through playing around in rehearsal. Genius.

I adore "Fake Plastic Trees," "Let Down," "No Surprises," and actually, pretty much all of OK Computer. I've own three cd's- Pablo Honey, OK Computer, and The Bends. OK is by far my favourite, but the other two are pretty good. I'm not so much a fan of the new stuff. And I have a friend whose a HUGE fan, so whenever i talk about them i sound dumb compared to her.

But....Thom Yorke sang some of the songs on the Velvet Golmine Soundtrack, which is the best soundtrack ever and an amazing movie. And weren't some of the members of Radiohead in the Weird Sisters in the fourth Harry Potter movie? I know Jarvis Cocker of Pulp (another amazing British band popular in the nineties) was the lead singer, but i thought Radiohead was the rest of the band...anyone know?

So, yeah, I love Radiohead! So nice to see some Radiohead-love out there.

Title: Re:Radiohead
Post by: Zip on December 07, 2006, 03:46:06 pm

I know! And I can only imagine Ed's face! His attempt to ruin the song only made it brilliant! LoL.

I also adore "Hail to the Thief". The whole record is inspired by Dantes "The Divine Comedy" (Is it called that in English?) which is soo great. I studied it when I lived in Italy, and it has so many layers. The band often uses literature as inspiration.

Post by: jubeth on December 07, 2006, 03:49:13 pm

Oh god Velvet Goldmine I love that film and the music, have the soundtrack and the video....

I love 'No surprises' but I couldn't remember what album it was on and I didn't want to make a fool of myself by saying the wrong album name.

Title: Re:Radiohead
Post by: Zip on December 07, 2006, 04:04:11 pm

There are many Radiohead clips on You Tube. He sings almost better live than recorded. Amazing. They are amazing. They amazingness makes me happy ;D

Title: Re:Radiohead
Post by: Hyper_gurl on December 08, 2006, 07:35:05 pm

Yup, its called "The Divine Comedy" in English. I read part of it, but had to stop when i got overwhelmed by schoolwork. What i read was amazing, though.

And don't even get me started on Velvet Goldmine...just...guh...the soundtrack is amazing, and Thom just sounds so different, yet you can tell its him.

"No Surprises" is on Ok Computer. It was one of the first Radiohead songs i ever really loved :)

Title: Re:Radiohead
Post by: Zip on December 11, 2006, 12:31:52 pm

I think my all time fav Radiohead song is "Killer Cars". The lyrics are just so beautiful. Thom really has this fear of cars. As should we all. He has also written "Airbag" about cars and traffic. He was in a car accident when he was 19, I think. His then girlfriend got hurt. MUst have been awful.
I also really like "You never wash up after yourself". I find it funny. LoL.

Title: Re:Radiohead
Post by: eLijAhZpuMpKiNlOvE on December 19, 2006, 01:58:15 am

I adore Radiohead. "Airbag" is one of my favourite songs. I've really been getting into them a lot recently. I only have OK Computer and The Bends, and my friend is lending me Kid A, which I really like.

OK Computer was number three in Australia's top ten albums. I was shocked, I never knew the nation had such good taste. Then again, it was on the ABC. ;)

Title: Re:Radiohead
Post by: funny_fish on December 19, 2006, 10:36:30 pm

Kid A is probably my favorite Radiohead album out of the ones I own (The Bends, OK Computer, Kid A). I think all three of those albums are fantastic.

I've seen Pablo Honey at the used CD stores for really cheap, but I refuse to buy it because I hate "Creep". I may get around to purchasing Amnesiac and Hail To The Theif one day, though, but they're not exactly high on my list of albums to buy.

I'm thinking of getting Thom Yorke's solo album (The Eraser), though, since what I've heard from it sounds good.

Title: Re:Radiohead
Post by: Emmi on March 31, 2007, 10:34:10 am

2+2=5 and Let Down I just adore.

I've lisened to several songs from Eraser, I guess I was almost expectintg it to sound like more of a departure from Radiohead, but everything I've heard from Thoms solo album just kinda ounds... like radiohead. *shrug* not that it's bad. just ever so slightly disapointing.

Title: Re:Radiohead
Post by: eLijAhZpuMpKiNlOvE on April 03, 2007, 07:19:32 am

Oh. Complete love for Radiohead. My friends and I always sing "Idioteque" when we're drunk. Then we wrote "ICE AGE COMING" all over each other in permanent texta. ;D

I made a t-shirt a while ago that says "I like Radiohead a lot" on it. Harr! I'm going to make a better one when I get around to it. I also made two Radiohead badges.

I bought the proper copies of "Hail to the Thief" and "OK Computer" a few weeks ago.

I was actually really looking forward to seeing "Velvet Goldmine". But when I watched it I was really disappointed. I just got so bored!

Title: Re:Radiohead
Post by: slacky on September 08, 2007, 06:47:01 pm

I love Radiohead!!!
I've seen them in concert in 2003 and it was brilliant!
One of the best concerts i've ever been to.
I have 4 of their albums, Hail to the thief is my favorite


Title: Re:Radiohead
Post by: Starladear on September 10, 2007, 11:57:27 am

i too saw Radiohead in concert awhile back they were brilliant!!! i have at some point owned all of the albums but a lot of years of playing them has since expired them so i am looking to refresh my collection (i'm on my third copy of siamese dream) they are defenitely a group that has never been overrated. Zip i thought the song was called talk show host from romeo and juliet unless exit music is uncredited!!! talk show host is a great tune!

you didn't like it?? hmm well.
i know this is very bias of me, but it's such an intense film, totally love it, and the soundtrack! i guess just the soundtrack makes it worth watching.
perhaps you could watch it again, sometimes it happens that you just get into films/music the second or third time you watch it.
hmmm i dunno really know why i'm trying to convince you to like the film. sorry. sorry :-\

so i was posting in the first place to hear everyone's thoughts about 'In Rainbows'.
I've just listenned to it once, and oh my it really got my heart
although i do need to listen to it more attentively. i don't have a favourite song yet.... :)

Title: Re:Radiohead
Post by: ElwooDiNa on September 03, 2009, 09:22:31 am

what can I say about those guys?they know what they're doing..
best albums for me are "The Bends" and "In Rainbows"

Title: Re:Radiohead
Post by: Lanta the Gemstar on October 13, 2009, 03:43:02 am

I'm listening to "In Rainbows" right now... my fave songs are probably Nude and Videotape. So emotional.

This album is a grower - almost as good as OK Computer and The Bends IMHO.

Title: Re:Radiohead
Post by: Edna Frau on October 19, 2009, 05:19:32 am

I am in love with Kid A right now. So amazing. ;)

Post by: Lanta the Gemstar on January 24, 2010, 05:26:12 am

Hail to the Thief is my new (old) favourite!

There There - truly magnificent song, and the video reminds me a LOT of Lord of the Rings. Also big on The Gloaming, 2=2=5 and We Suck Young Blood from that album. Oh, what the hey... the whole albums' a work of art. ;D ;)

Title: Re:Radiohead
Post by: Lanta the Gemstar on February 18, 2011, 08:48:53 pm

Sorry for the double-post... but there's a good reason!

vvv

Radiohead released their long-awaited NEW ALBUM "King of Limbs" yesterday. ;D :D *hand claps*

I love them so much I don't even mind paying for the download. ;)
