Radiohead (Part 1)

Radiohead, truly my favorite band. They have affected me in so many ways, I can hardly describe, and wouldn't know where to begin. I suppose I'll start from the beginning. When I was much younger (4-5), my brother would play Radiohead incessantly, I really never knew what it was, but it affected me deeply.

I'll start with one of their most popular tracks Creep. The interesting thing is, Thom Yorke really got sick of playing this live and hearing it on the radio. He explains how the song turned into "fridge buzz" in an interview:


Thom Yorke: There's a line in "Karma Police," about the buzzes like a fridge," and when you're driving around and around, and you have the alternative stations on in the background, or in your hotel room, it's just like a fridge buzzing. That's all I'm hearing. I'm just hearing buzz. It's really odd. You just have to laugh,'cause-

Journalist: Well, the one song that you had that was really embraced-

Thom Yorke: Yeah, that had the fridge buzzing in it.

Journalist: -by the modern rock format-

Both: -Creep.

Thom Yorke: That was a good fridge buzz.


So, without further to do here is the infamous Creep:




After the infamous album Pablo Honey Radiohead released The Bends. One popular song off that album was High and Dry:




So as you can tell by the title, this is going to be a multi-part series. I'm not sure how many just yet, but I will get through all their albums. They really are an amazing band.

On a side note, I just saw Fleet Foxes, truly one of the most amazing bands I've ever seen live. I posted them a few days ago. You really should check them out, they are really professional and all I can is their voices are what I imagine heaven sounds like.

Actually really dislike Radiohead...I dunno why really, their songs to me border line on unintelligible noise, hate Thom Yorke's attitude towards himself, and in general just find them boring. But here they are a band that is praised so much in this last decade...
