Why is this in the 24th place, this song is so great it so deserves to be in the top 5, for me it goes fake plastic trees, karma police, lucky, street spirit and codex
IT IS TRULY THE MOST AMAZING SONG WORK PIECE OF MUSIC EVER##. But really, this should be higher up on the list just because its Lucky. Great Song. Woohoo!
This is Radiohead at their best. The music, lyrics and singing are full of emotion. It's pure hope & inspiration in a song. Brilliant!
Very memorableV 8 Comments
Sick twisted nightmare of a song. It's amazing what music can make you feel
This is such a great song. People, this song deserves a better place!
Along with Exit music for a film, The Tourist and Electioneering.. This is the best song on OK Computer
Whiney but my favorite song by Radiohead. By the way, Thom Yorke was really thinking about the tone!V 7 Comments
This is by far their best song. From first listen, I was emotionally committed to this band. Amazing music, amazing lyrics, amazing vocal performance, and has probably the best outro I've ever heard in a song. Shame on all of you for not voting TEAM OPTIMISTIC!
This song is so beautiful and haunting. It gets stuck in my head for days on end & I can't get enough of it. It's almost like crack- though there are quite a few other songs that are equally addicting.
A great songs that resembles something you'd hear on an earlier like "The Bends" By far the highlight of Kid A, and should be at least top 10 on this list. Very disappointed - The_Acid_Queen
This song is so beautifully blissful, one of the best songs ever written. The switch up at the end is just...
It makes me want to play the song again, and again, and again...
It's not famous, but it's a song worth listening to. The lyrics are outstanding and the guitar riffs are just out of this world. Must be in the top ten!
Listen this one then you'll know... This song deserves a much better spot.
One of the lesser known radiohead songs... But easily top ten material...
That intro. Desperately beautifulV 15 Comments
Beautifully arranged cascade of images run through the verses and chorus, images that seem random on first pass. But the brilliance of the song is how on each listen through "A Wolf at the Door" can seem extremely personal -- an intimate, smothering struggle with one's own personal demons (or "wolves," to push the metaphor) -- or very abstract -- the whirling mass hysteria that is our modern world, and that strange sense of betrayal we all feel when we confront it daily ("slaps you in the head, knifes you in the neck, kicks you in the teeth...takes all your credit cards"), and yet the betrayal seems deserved ("Stepford wives, who are we to complain? "). There are no heroes and villains, just pathological victims victimizing themselves. Such an elevated work of art!
Such a unique song from them-- unlike anything they had done before. I really enjoy this song, it's individuality, and it's catchiness. Also, it gives off such a clear vibe of edginess, danger, and aggression... Love it.
What...? This one is the most awesome n meaningful song ever whats wrong with you guys?
Best closing song to an album EVER!V 5 Comments
The bass. The brass. The Radiohead. This song is amazing! One of my all time favorites! Absolutely under-rated!
I was under the impression this song had a bigger following.. This song is easily top ten and in my opinion their best. It is a great example of Radiohead at their best, where they just chew up whatever they might be listening to and spit back out something totally unique.
How can this be at 31? This is an absolute masterpiece, one of the greatest bass lines ever, the brass section! This is radiohead as it's best.
Pretty damn good song. One of the best bass lines of all time in my opinion.V 7 Comments
Was going to pick "Paranoid Android", but I noticed that one of my other favorites was feeling a little lonely. A great opener for In Rainbows with a truly epic progression that'll make you feel things you've never felt before.
These are the type of lyrics today's society are missing!
"How come I end up where I started? How come I end up where I went wrong? Wont take my eye of the ball again, you reel me out then you cut the string..."
Amazing song! I'm loving it so much... Since I watched Twilight this song impresses me a lot... I feel like I'm addicted to it... I'm new... I mean this is the first Radiohead's song I've listened, I'm imagining... If this song's great... The most voted song it's what? I'm going to do some research...
Worst song in their entire catalogueV 3 Comments
A truly beautiful piece of music, The build is incredible and when the lyric comes in and the change in key takes place I drift into a special place only this song can take me. Big headphones, close your eyes and drift off. Special
Into a clear lake... No one around! Beautiful, sad, this song makes me feel far and in peace.
It happenend recently, I found myself in the middle of nowhere on the border between France and Italy, the mountains around and facing a very small lake. Nobody else but me and dragonflies. Scary and beautiful, as this song is.
This should be in the top 10. This is my favorite Radiohead song ever.V 4 Comments
Why is this so low? How Thom's vocals have the same melody like that bassline in the 1st verse is amazing!
Please excuse if my English is not that good, I'm from Germany
This really jumpstarts the final part of hail to the theif. The song absolutely smokesV 2 Comments
Is only me or this music also makes you imagine flying in a tiny spaceship, charged with anti-matter bombs, ready to save the Earth (after had ruined it... ) by destroying a bunch of crazy androids made by yourself?
The way this song starts off is amazing, cello in one ear, an grinding rough guitar in the other both playing the same riff. It then you hear the third guitar start to play too, and the drums kick in as one of the catchiest tunes ever starts to play. Thom Yorke starts his singing and carries you on a 4:44 minute journey. Yeah, Radiohead are back to save the universe.
Come on! This is one of my all time favorites by them. It shows Thom's signature singing voice, and all of the music is great. Especially the intro This should be in at least the top 10.
One of their best songs, easy. Criminally underrated.V 5 Comments
A very manic song with an epic explosion! This is the music where the new and the old radiohead come together. Aggressive, Intolerant, Angry and Emotional
A soft, "everything is perfectly fine" opening melody. Then it wakes you up...
It's basically a mini and more polished version of paranoid android. Best radiohead opener to an album hands down
Probably the most underrated Radiohead song, I rate this alongside Idioteque and Paranoid Android.V 6 Comments
I think I've reached the minimum quality requirement... No, not yet... Almost there... Come on... Ugh.. Got it!
Without a doubt my favourite Radiohead record, this song captures the 90's in 4 minutes!
This is great music, a true masterpiece
Clearly the best song by Radiohead.V 1 Comment
WHY IS THIS SONG ALL THE WAY DOWN HERE! It's SO AMAZING! THE BEAT OH MY GOSH THE DRUM BEAT! AMAZING! THE HAUNTING VOCALS AHH caps lock. Anyways, the drum beat is addicting, the vocals are brilliant clear and soothing, every sound in the song is perfectly incorporated into one, beautiful, haunting, driving, intense sound.
Come on guys. Lotus Flower being all the way down here is a disgrace to the song. Definitely the best song off of King of Limbs. The entire album is so easy on the ears. So catchy and the music video well... You should check it out.
It's like an explosion in my mind every time I hear to this song... I think it should be at least in the top ten..
The only reason I can think of for this song to stand so low in this list is that not enough people have listened to this song. By the way the dance in the music video is the best I have seen in a long time.V 9 Comments
I know that this is not usually considered one of their "greatest" songs by most fans, but I feel that this song is the perfect mixture of the intense riffs that Radiohead is so good at procuring out of the airwhile still being as emotive as ever. I just think it is beautiful.
This is the second best on amnesiacV 5 Comments
Why the heck is this song so low down?!?! Clearly people just don't understand how amazingly well written this song is... You try writing an electronic four minute masterpiece with enough meaning in the music alone to have comprehensible lyrics! It makes you feel tense, worried, relieved, and a plethora of more emotions in the short four minutes of this song alone... People don't understand Radiohead...
This song is the most beautiful thing on Kid A and everything else that Radiohead have done. Street Spirit? Nah. High and Dry? Do me a favour. Creep? Bugger that! I love every single one of Radiohead's songs (yes, even Creep), but Kid A takes the top spot on my list. It's beautiful, adorable, relaxing, and it has a slight lullaby feel with the beginning melodies that are played before the amazing electronic vocals kick in!
The unimaginable nostalgia this brings back... Creates a such a sound that sound like children's toys being played with at the beginning. Kid A leads everyone into a new life and a new realm of music.
I guess the only way to really enjoy some of their songs is to picture yourself in some strange placeV 2 Comments
I'm not sure why, but this song is calming and energizing at the same time. What a sublime song, and so early in radiohead's career. I wasn't a fan until I heard this masterpiece.
This song kicked the crap out of me when I listened to it for the first time. It was shocking how much they evolved from Pablo Honey to the Bends, which became more evident as I listened further.
PLANET TELEX IS AWESOME! I JUST CAN"T HELP LOVING THIS SONG! SHOULD BE IN TOP TEN. THE GUITAR IS AMAZING! ONE OF THE HIGHLIGHTS OF THE BENDS!
To think they recorded this drunk just shows their musical abilities. This song showed they were more than Nirvana-lite - averthein14V 1 Comment
Beautiful! The moment in which the little and delicate guitar riff enters, really touches me...
The most underrated Radiohead song. Absolutely beautiful. This was what made The King of Limbs worth listening to. Might be my favorite song of theirs.
For me king of limbs is like the fruit of all the previous radiohead's albums, and SEPERATOR is their best work so far, this song is not less than paranoid android or everything in its right place.
Possibly my favorite Radiohead song. Turn off your mind, relax, and float downstream is exactly how it makes me feel. Could listen to it all day.
Wish everyone would stop complaining. Every song post has someone saying it's their best song and should be top ten. Disgraceful and annoying!
Why is this song so low, it is easily the best song off of In Rainbows, and definitely one of their top ten next to Street Spirit and There There. It is such a beautiful song, and the guitar makes it feel like you are actually underwater.
I was going to pick "Everything In Its Right Place", but this song at #31 is injustice. Most underrated Radiohead song of all time. As others have noted, the instrument and vocals give an aquatic effect, and if you close your eyes, you can see pretty much anything. I listened to it on a beach in Florida one night, and it transcended time and space. It was beautiful.
I think this is the best piece of modern music by anyone. I doubted that I'd ever hear anything to surpass Comfortably Numb but this does. I'd love to ask the band how they knew when this track was finished. Like any great piece of art the key to its greatness is knowing when to stop adding to it. Perfect.
What the hell is this doing down here? Easily in the top 10V 14 Comments
I am surprised that no one noticed this song. This is one of the few songs that made me euphoric (with hints of horror and depression, difficult to put in words). It expresses emotions which cannot be expressed through any language. The ending is absolutely haunting... Yes, I think haunting is a word that comes close enough.
Absolutely gorgeous song. Makes me cry every time. Between Thom' s amazing vocals with such feeling and there equally beautiful heart felt music, I can't choose. Either way it makes me tear up.
The most bittersweet song I have ever heard, and the perfect love song. This should be in the top 10!
Deserves to be in the top 10. Harps are brilliant in this song
Reminds me of someone.V 9 Comments
