Top Ten Radiohead Songs That Aren't Singles

All of the lesser known Radiohead songs that don't get enough attention. Before adding a song I'd suggest looking it up on Wikipedia (or Youtube) to see if it's already been released as a video, because that would disqualify it.

The Top TenXW

1How to Disappear Completely

This is a single, but still a fantastic song

2Let Down

Very underrated, but a genius mind was driven into overdrive for this one. Fantastic song that really drives home a message.

Just beautiful 'one day I am gonna grow wings'

3A Wolf at the Door

One of Radiohead's best songs in my opinion.

4Subterreanean Homesick Alien

Totally underrated, very smoth and mellow song. This and The Tourist - also underrated - have some of the best atmospheric tones on both OK Computer and Radiohead's entire discography.

5Black Star

Easily on of the greatest songs from the bends!


A song representing Pablo Honey on ANY Radiohead list? Wohoo! I'll vote for it just for that

8Climbing Up the Walls

Climbing Up the Walls is a song that has the power to give you nightmares... A haunting and beautiful song that shows, like many of their awesome songs, Radiohead just love playing with emotions. A personal favourite.

This has always been a personal favorite for me, and I'm suprised it's not on this list already. Love it.

9Life In a Glasshouse

Underrated song off an underrated album.

10(Nice Dream)

This remains one of Radiohead's beautiful songs, even almost 20 years later

Awesome song. Third song I've ever heard by radiohead first two being creep and karma police. Optimistic strangely got me into radiohead. Thank you Pandora for helping me really discover radiohead.

Pretty much the song that got me into kid a and the rest of their 2000's material. great song

15Motion Picture Soundtrack

Kid A was definitely one of the first albums I've ever truly fallen in love with. I don't think there exists an album that is closer to my heart than this (and I listen to a lot of music, of all genres). This song leaves me absolutely speechless... I don't know what to say about it... I'm sure part of it is because of the music that comes before it, but, Motion Picture Soundtrack is an absolute grand finale. Instant tears anytime I listen to it, and I have been listening to it now for years (although I don't listen to the album all that much anymore cause I feel the need to listen to it all at once and it's sort of an emotional roller coaster for me now due to nostalgia). It's pure beauty. Can't really say this is my favorite; it's 100% impossible to choose a favorite Radiohead song. But if I had to die after listening to 20 songs of my choice, I think this may be the last song. In fact, I'm still young, but I've already considered having this played at my funeral. If you had a nickel ...more

This is without doubt the best song about death I've heard! You know songs about death and how they uselly are, hardcore and metal... But this one ihas an amazing melody, lyrics and when the haarps rain down from the sky, it's just undescribable! I mean, what is the ultimate ending song to an album as Kid-A, a song about acceptance and realisation, "I am ready to die kinda" song. The ultimate ending to Kid-A is a song wich repeats the words, " I think you're crazy, maybe" and if you wait an minute after the song finnishes, you can hear the beam-up to heaven in a loud, beautiful and kinda scary sound! This song proves that Radiohead is the best band that exists!

16In Limbo

This song is very cool. When I close my eyes and turn up the volume when listening to in limbo, I feel as if I'm in a different universe.

17Kid A

This song gives you a sense of comfort, but at the same time a disturbing feeling. It's alienated and calm.

18Faust Arp

I don't understand why this song isn't more popular- everything about it is incredible; not just the lyrics, but the vocal and instrumental layering as well. This is, without a doubt, my favourite Radiohead song.

Always been a big fan of this song, it's my favourite on the album. Not the best, but my favourite, probably because it's just two minutes of very very good music.

19All I Need

One of my favorite songs from Kid A, tied with how to disappear completely, and it's not on the list
