41 Bodysnatchers

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

Underrated and overlooked, but their best besides Paranoid Android

Probably one of my favorites.

This one of Radiohead's best rock songs in the post OK-Computer era. Simply fantastic!

42 Motion Picture Soundtrack

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!

This may not be a top 10 song but it sure as hell isn't 41. All the feels.

Reminds me of someone.

43 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.

This I'm my all time favorite song

44 Go to Sleep

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.

45 Glass Eyes

A Moon Shaped Pool forever

Their second best song

So good

46 Like Spinning Plates

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. :(

47 Knives Out

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!

One of their most obscure songs, but an absolute masterpiece. You don't even need to like Radiohead to like this song. It has an extremely memorable, catchy, minimalist and melancholy-sounding guitar riff.

No words can describe...

This is one of my favorites by them. every time I hear the riff it makes me feel like I'm downtown in some big city.

Wow

49 Electioneering

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

Bruh why so low

50 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.

51 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.

52 We Suck Young Blood

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

Love the bit where the energy picks up at the end and then seemlessly slides back into the melancholy slow pace.

53 Packt Like Sardines In a Crushd Tin Box

This song is one of my personal favorates and I don't know why it doesn't get the credit it deserve

54 Last Flowers

Paranoid Android, Karma Police, Fake Plastic Trees may be a wiser choice, but no other Radiohead songs that strikes me like this song. Sometimes whenever I'm tired I just close my eyes and listen to this song and let it seeps through my bones and brings me down with it.

My absolute favorite song by Radiohead. And there isn't one song that I don't like by them.
The mellow piano mixed with the chilling vocals are just... an experience. And then when the guitar comes in it steps to a new level. An absolutely fantastic song with a big meaning.

I'll never understand why this didn't make it to In Rainbows. Way underrated.

Just gorgeous!

55 Identikit

How is this 57? Got the grooviest beat going on, while Thom is on top form, 'When I see you messing me around, I don't want to know', fantastic and unexpected choir section in the middle, and then that delicious bass hook comes back towards the end, beats anything on Amnesiac

56 Sit Down, Stand Up

Why is this all the way down here?!? This is like my favourite!

I have no idea what the last part is saying... something about power rangers?

This song is trippy, especially after the second half, It Should definitely be within at least top twenty! - rishabhtiwari

57 You

Oh man why does nobody know this? This song is so beautiful!

Highly overlooked and underrated should be higher. - Quart

Better than that lah

58 Ful Stop

Easily best on their new album, and a contender for top 5 if not 3 - MikaBeeWall

59 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.

A wonderfully crafted song. But then, calling this a mere 'song' is a gross injustice.

60 The Trickster

You guys really call yourselves true radiohead fans? Then I must say you haven't heard this song at all... Because there is no reason that the song is way down in the list after being heard...

I agree! You hear that song and don't vote for it? Now that's something unreal...

I don't really understand why this song is down here.
This is an amazing song.
