Top Ten Best Radiohead Songs


The Contenders: Page 4

61 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

62 Ful Stop

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

63 You

Really good song. How has none voted for this masterpiece yet?

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

Highly overlooked and underrated should be higher. - Quart

This definitely needs to be higher.

64 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.

What, this song should be at top 5

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.


66 Black Star

This is an amazing song build... Should be much higher

This deserves to be in the top 10. My favourite song on The Bends next to Fake Plastic Trees.

The end to that song "This is killing me" is amazing. Definitely one of the best.

Truly underappreciated classic.

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.

68 Polyethylene (Parts 1 & 2)

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

69 Videotape

This song is so underrated, it should be at least on the top 10 replacing creep.

An overlooked gem! Not top 20 or material but come on, 101?

One of the best songs I've ever heard

Wonderful song. Wonderful lyrics.

70 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.

71 Sail to the Moon

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 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...

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

72 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.

73 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.

74 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.

75 Blow Out

Amazing. No doubt it's one of Pablo Honey's best songs, and I even consider it one of Radiohead's best songs. It doesn't get too many votes since it's not a really well known song, but I honestly think it should be at least in the top 20.(I'd personally vote it within the top 10)

Don't understand why people always hate on pablo honey. It is a good album. Still, their other albums are just as good and they all have certain qualities that make them stand out, but anyway this song would definitely be in my top 10 and if Lurgee was on this list I would make it number one. And faust arp should be in the top 10. It is amazing.

51, really! Come on people! I agree, Pablo honey is definitely not their best album, but blow out would definitely make for an awesome soundtrack... The long guitar riffs are just amazing.

This song proves that Pablo Honey is not just a "one-hit wonder album." Great closer, something that Radiohead often does so great.

76 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

Very good

77 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!

78 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

79 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.

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.

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.
