Top Ten Best Radiohead Songs


The Contenders: Page 4

61 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.

62 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...

Trickster is not meaningless, trickster is not weak-it is a gem

I dunno that song.
By the way, it's not in "The Bends"!

63 Nice Dream

It is a shame on those people who haven't add this song on this beautiful list. Please guys I know that I am not the only one who likes this song so much.

Such a beautiful song, deserves to be in the top 20 at least.

This is a song with so much meaning. It should definitely be in the top 20 at least!

One of my favourite radiohead songs. I get so emotional every time I listen to it. I really adore both the lyrics and the music. What a pitty to be so low in this list. definitely in my top 10.

64 Polyethylene (Parts 1 & 2)

Little brother of Paranoid Android, and it's a great song

65 Sail to the Moon

The song is majestic, in my opinion it's also some of Thom's best vocals and everything seems to hang together, if you don't believe me give it another listen...

I honestly don't understand why this is SO far down! Better than paranoid android and creep if you ask me. Listen for yourself I swear you will love it

The live version of this song with just thom and jonny playing is one of radiohead's best moments. this song is way trippy

66 Faust Arp

Most beautiful moment on In_Rainbows in my humble opinion.

I simply cannot believe that this is so low on the list. While it is no masterpiece it does deserve to be in the top 20 at least. Very nice Beatles-esque acoustic ballad short, simple, and sweet.

67 Sulk

Wow... This song should be way higher. Extremely powerful vocals, an understated, yet well composed riff. Oh well, all I can do is shrug my shoulders.

Amazing song from from one of the best albums ever

Needs to be ranked higher.

Underrated early Radiohead my favorite along with Paranoid Android,Nude,and Let Down

68 Pulk / Pull Revolving Doors

A "song" about a computer coming to some sinister truths about doors.
I like it, but I know it's not for everyone.

69 The Daily Mail

I kind of figured this would be really low down the list since it's one of their new songs and it's only a B-side. I love King of Limbs, but the fact they didn't include this song on it is probably one of the things that I still don't understand. I love the buildup to the amazing climax, as well as the beautiful beginning as well.

Wouldn't necessarily call this my "favorite" Radiohead song, but it should be definitely notified as one their bests and is always going to be in my top 5 favorites.

Way too low on this list! Even though this is a B-side this song is amazing and is just as good if not better than any song on King of Limbs.

Definitely a top 10 Radiohead song. Not many people know it though because it wasn't released on a studio album. - gerrick

70 Morning Bell

This is 113. Are you serious. My third favorite Kid A song behind Kid A and how to disappear completely, this is Radiohead's scariest song. Cutting kids in half? Yeah. Anyway, how on earth is this behind the disc 2 songs? Also, it deserves top 10. I would actually put this ahead of paranoid android. One of their great masterpieces. And it didn't even crack the top 100. I thought Radiohead fans were better than this.

Can't believe this is so low. I'm not saying it's their best but definitely up there, the transition between Idioteque and this song is just mesmerising. I recently purchased Kid A on vinyl and I was absolutely blown away by it.

Should be 1,2, or 3. Only "Everything in its right place" or "Paranoid Android" could be higher.

Yorke's cries of 'release me' along with that chord progression and synth just makes this song for me. It's my favourite song off Kid A, and I love the transition between this and Idioteque.

Also, why is Pulk above this?

71 Thinking About You

Why is this so low? Beautiful song, this list is right except for how low this is. Should be #3 or something, not 78!

Listen to this guys, it's the best song if you love someone who you may never get

I cannot believe thet 'thinking of you"is not in first ten. Is a awesome song! With mixed senses, inspiring... oh man, just I love that song!

72 I Promise

I like this song, just it!

73 Spectre

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

74 I Will (No Man's Land)

I think it has a lot of deeper meaning,...I love this song, yet it is SO underrated.

Slow and simple but with a much deeper and sinister side to it.

Best radiohead song

75 Scatterbrain

Extremely underrated song. One of the saddest in the entire Radiohead discography. Scatterbrain, Daydreaming, Like Spinning Plates and Street Spirit (Fade Out) are these songs that don't left any hope in their lyrical content but their musical beauty, their minimalism is priceless.

I just hate the fact that my favourite radiohead song is ranked 77

Absolutely fantastic song, completely underrated.

This is the penultimate track on HT and is a nice emotional war like song with some very minimalisticly complex melodies, a hidden gem persay. In my personal Top 5 Radiohead songs. The fact that it wasn't even mentioned made me a little bit mad.

76 Bones

I love distorted guitar that's why I'm voting this one up.

My fave song from them takes you away and makes me think about lost youth and I'll never have it back

Nothing from the Bends should be below the top 50.

77 Lift

The best radiohead song

Simply cannot get enough. Yorke uses verse triplets altered slightly with each phrase. This songwrting approach embeds tunes deep into the psyche. Lift, There There and especially Present Tense are mind bendingly beautiful melodies.

78 Go Slowly

My top ten list (of radiohead's songs) certainly includes this. I have listened and watched it many many times from their in rainbows live from the basement album, it really is one of the most beautiful meaningful song to me.

Scrolling scrolling scrolling... Ah! Here you are! All the way at 61... Well, I absolutely love this song and although I wouldn't make it number one, it definitely deserves to be higher on the list.

79 In Limbo

One of the greatest Radiohead tunes ever and it couldn't even make the top 101?

I suppose it's also the most underrated.

Not only my favorite Radiohead song, but my favorite song of all time. It mesmerizes me every time I hear it. Sad to see how underrated it is.

I love the lyrics and I think the music fits extremely well with the theme of the song. It makes me feel like I'm spiraling down
