41 I Might Be Wrong I Might Be Wrong

A song about being alive, a song about dying, a song about what makes you happy, and a song about depression. And how all those ideas can change in one instant... Such a good song. Inventive guitar riffs with some electronic percussion thrown in. You can just set this song on repeat and listen for hours. For anyone that didn't put in a vote for this song, please rethink, "I might be wrong".

This is the greatest song of Radiohead, but I might be wrong..

Amazing sound with simple lyrics that nonetheless take you places. This should definitely be ranked within the top ten.

Personal favorite song of all time, that is if I'm in a certain mood. I might be wrong like the other guy said but this is their best song.

42 Weird Fishes/Arpeggi Weird Fishes/Arpeggi

Very underrated. This songs is so dense, it talks about a universal situation. The guitar riffs make you feel like swimming, and the song was so well-written that you can imagine yourself "falling off and in the deepest ocean, the bottom of the sea".

This is my favourite radiohead song, don't understand the 70th place.

This song means so much to me. I really wish they would come out with a studio version of this, this song makes me so sad :') but happy at the same time.

"I'm not living... I'm just killing time. "

Got stoned to this song and cried like a baby. It's just so beautiful, man.

One of the best love songs I've ever heard

New studio version is really good too - Quart

44 House of Cards House of Cards

Beautiful song, unlike most other Radiohead songs. Thom's voice and the bass lift this song into having a surreal quality and the lyrics are simply amazing. - NorwegianWood

Just in peace when you listen to this song.. Takes you to some other world. No 32 is too low for such a great song.. And oh the video.. How can one not love it. Radiohead for life...

This song should be at the top of the table, it's like a psychedelic drug that takes you to a different high or a low depending on your state of mind.

Amazing a great one to just relax and listen to and mellow out

45 Bullet Proof...I Wish I Was Bullet Proof...I Wish I Was

Seriously guys! Jhonny is epic with that tune! Its like thinking about your ex girlfriend and then riding a rollercoaster and thinking how beautiful your life was this song is one of the best I have ever heard!

This song is plain beautiful. Such a peaceful and serene melody but such devastating lyrics.. A song about rejection and the struggle for self acceptance, such a theme could not be portrayed by anyone better than radiohead.

Seriously? 53? This song is beautiful. 53 is just too low a rank for an amazing song like this.

Why so low? This is way better then "Creep". - Powerfultekin

I would argue that this is one of Radiohead's greatest songs, and would be certain it's the best one on Amnesiac, even with behemoths such as Pyramid Song, Crushd, Gl assh ouse, You And Whose Army, I Might Be Wrong, and even Revolving Doors. This song, experienced with noise isolation and surround sound-like audio, is probably one of the best musical environments to experience. The chord progression itself is outstanding; I could simply play the A, C#m, and G# on a loop on piano for hours and be satisfied. I really enjoy hearing the pizzicato strings reversed throughout the song as well. Finally, I just find it mind blowing how they took what was originally "I Will" and reversed it to make an even better track. Overall, and incredible four minutes of music here. - uofmfan1221

This song is truly a work of art. This song proves that radiohead's envisioning of musical artistry is a rare form of inspired genius. I listen to this song and I become convinced that the creation of melody was never meant to be restricted by anything but the imagination of the creator. This song would survive deeep into the future. Pure eternal bliss.

The I Might Be Wrong version is MUCH better. Sometimes it frustrates me how insanely in love Thom is with electronic music, this is one of those times along with the King of Limbs.

Should have ben at least in the Top 10. :(

Just a good ole fashioned rock driven song, with possibly Johnny Greenwoods best guitar solo in the entire radiohead catologue.

If you have some music background and play guitar, this is the best song radiohead ever done. unique masterpiece. seriously this is the best song from radiohead. of course standart "popular song likers" wont like it.

This is ranked 41?

Just goes on to show you the unparalleled greatness of the band.

This song would easily fit anywhere between #1 and #15 in the "best songs list" of almost any other band or artist.

I won't say this is the best Radiohead song, but the arrangement of the song is so beautiful and complex that it deserves to be ranked in the top 20 (as a bare minimum)

Best groove of any radiohead tune

38th place? Really?
This is the best!

50 Electioneering Electioneering

Maybe not their best song, but it should be in the top ten. - beasthound

51 Bloom Bloom

Simply the best Radiohead song to me... It's already great and complex in the album, but the live version of this song is just out of this world, unreal. It's sad that it's so underrated because it was in The King of Limbs, an album a lot of people didn't like/understand completely.

52 Life in a Glasshouse Life in a Glasshouse

Let's put it this way. Best song off amnesiac. It would in fact be my favorite if Nude, Weird Fishes, Kid A and All I Need didn't exist. But those all got recognition at the higher spots. Their best piece maybe not atmospherically, but musically even Paranoid Android has to bow to this masterpiece. #46? Nope. Nothing off The Bends, OK Computer, King of Limbs, Hail to the Thief or Pablo Honey deserves a higher spot than this. Brutally underrated masterpiece.

While is not one of the songs I fell in love at a first glance, is the one I find myself hearing constantly nowadays.

The only song to top this from Amnesiac is Pyramid Song, and that song is a masterpiece.

Definitely one Of there most underrated songs.

Why is this not higher? It's simply genius! That part at the end (you know what I'm talking about) is just phenomenal!

54 The Tourist The Tourist

Oh man, why is The Tourist this far down? From Thom Yorke's signature wail in the chorus, the amazing guitar solos throughout (don't you find it creepy how you can predict every single little sound as the song progresses) and how the song makes you think of... Nothingness, this is by far and wide one of Radiohead's best tracks.

I like to think of this as their hidden gem, their secret weapon if you wish. The best song that nobody's ever heard of.

Totally agree. Nobody ever seems to have heard of this song, but its amazing. The guitar at the start is so good. Potentially their best song if only it were given a little more recognition. Definitely recomend giving it a listen and voting it up.

Amazing song, pretty weird to see it this down, it should be at least top 10. Amazing chorus and guitars, too bad its so underrated.

Should be way up man

57 The Present Tense The Present Tense

The new album is amazing, Decks dark is my favourite though, but I still love this. I think this is probably my favourite album, or maybe tied with In Rainbows...

Most beautiful song they've ever made along with How to Disappear Completely, just simply stunning.

Nothing short of genius. Just goes to show that Radiohead are still at the top of their game.

Oh, this song deserves top 10. Vote guys

Before I listened to OK Computer, I looked at some websites to help guide me on what I should focus on. All of them mentioned songs like Paranoid Android and No Surprises, some of them went further and mentioned Electioneering and Climbing Up The Walls, but none of them mentioned this gem. It became one of my favorites the first time I listened to it. Truly underrated.

My favorite song off of OK Computer. The guitar effects in this song are simply amazing, and Thom's vocal performance is great as always. - NorwegianWood

My goodness me, how can this only be at Number 40?! Just listen to the grandness of the overall sound, the expansiveness, the brilliant balance between high energy and delicate, quiet intricacy. Easily in the top 10 for me this one.

Why is it 42? It really is a great song

I can't stop listening to this song! Radiohead's take on the "Bond" Theme! Perfect!

60 Burn the Witch Burn the Witch

I fell in love with this song the first time I listened to it... Such an amazing band : they never to the same thing, they keep producing new pieces of music that I absolutely adore.

The best since In Rainbows. Vote for this. This is their next step, yet it's so familiar. It combines all of their albums' sounds with ease.

Belongs in the top 5. Such a marvelous piece of art. Can't get it out of my head and can't stop playing it.

This is such an amazing song. I can't stop listening it - Constanza
