Top Ten Most Underrated Radiohead Songs

The Top Ten

1 The Amazing Sounds of Orgy
2 Present Tense
3 True Love Waits

Where's Harry Patch ( In Memory Of ) and You Never Wash Up After Yourself?. Those are two beautiful but underappreciated Radiohead songs.

Such a beautiful and underrated song! Shame they never did a studio version.

Beautiful song, and sadly underrated.

Uh, they did now.

4 Myxomatosis
5 Worrywort
6 Airbag

This song is never mentioned when I talk to people about Radiohead. It is one of my favorites...

Right now I'm listening to the song!

One of their best tracks on OK Computer, which contains however so many gems...

7 Fog
8 Subterranean Homesick Alien

The arrangement of the guitars in this song is breath-taking. The vocals are haunting and though I am not a huge fan of the punch line ("I'm just.. uptight! "), can't deny how brilliant the song is

I showed this song to a friend of mine that totally hates all rock. He was completely blown away by it.

9 I Will

Most overlooked song off HTTF. Beautiful, powerful, and short. It passes off as an emotionally while not boring you or being so long that you want to die like *cough* Motion Picture Soundtrack *Cough*. Great political message and actually fits the theme of the album.

Intense, beautiful, dark, vocally and lyrically. What else do you want from radio head?

10 You Never Wash Up After Yourself

The Newcomers

? In Limbo

The Contenders

11 The Trickster
12 The Tourist
13 Banana Co.
14 Climbing Up the Walls
15 Pearly
16 Talk Show Host

This is the best Radiohead song that was never put on an album, by a mile. The lyrics are perfectly angry and antisocial, but also anticlimactic. The feelings that this song creates are just so easy to relate to, and as always the instrumentation is amazing.

I'm glad people hate this song.

17 Bangers N' Mash
18 I Am a Wicked Child
19 Planet Telex

Nobody ever talks about this song but it's definitely one of my favourites out of The Bends and one of my favourite radiohead songs in general. Perfect intro song which ends with a perfect outro song: Street Spirit (Fade Out).

20 Morning Bell/amnesiac
21 4 Minute Warning
22 Faithless the Wonderboy
23 Motion Picture Soundtrack

My favorite Radiohead song.

This song made mercy

24 Kid A

This is actually my second favorite song on Kid A, only after Ideoteque. I am very aware many people wouldn't agree with that, but this sing is, beautifully haunting. It is an absolutely amazing song - ssbm514

25 Let Down
26 Polyethylene
27 Nude

A haunting, tear inducing tune. - IronSabbathPriest

28 Black Star
29 Just

It never appears in a top 10 Radiohead songs and I think it definitely should - Nintendonix

30 (Nice Dream)
31 I Want None of This
32 Separator

The song is just amazing.. The humming and all.. It's so good

The voice, the humming and the song "wake me up wake me up "... It's so good

The guitar riffs are amazing.. Listen to this song and decide where it deserves to b - prashant03

33 Bones
34 Treefingers
35 Palo Alto

This song is wonderfully simple and is uplifting and cynical at the same time. Nobody mentions it but it's one of my favorite OKC songs

36 Morning Bell

Why is this song so low on the other lists... This song is very beautiful and brings out the soul.

37 Maquiladora

Gotta be their best B-side

If you like JUST

38 Weird Fishes
39 Last Flowers

How is this song not in the top 5? Is one of the if not the most beautiful songs Thom Yorke has ever written.

40 How I Made My Millions
41 Gagging Order
42 The National Anthem
43 Trans-Atlantic Drawl

A great B-Side people forget about, along with Bishop's Robes. It should be up there with I Am A Wicked Child.

44 Sulk
45 Supercollider
46 Creep

I think Creep doesn't really get the recognition it deserves. Sure maybe it's the only song that non fans like of Radiohead and maybe they form their opinions on the band under the guise of that song, which leads them to ignore the uniqueity of the gems that sound nothing like Creep, such as 15 Step. But seriously, Creep needs to be talked about more. I don't even really like the song all that much, it's decent and showcases Thom's voice nicely but it doesn't really exemplify what is Radiohead, it just sounds like a decent rock song, which is NOT Radiohead. In conclusion, Creep is probably their most underrated song.
