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?

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.
