I think if it came to a crisis situation (which i dont wish to happen), people would chuck their values in the bin

Just look at drop in sales in organic food since the credit crunch
Again, it's your choice to be a selfish ass, but why is it that you look down upon those who choose to give a damn?

I don't know how you can be a U2 fan whos music has been influenced by a hell of lot of world events. If you reply you just like the sound...why can't that apply to Radiohead as well?
But U2's tunes provide a light at the end of the tunnel - i see their songs as uplifting. Not the same with Radiohead

and i do not like 100% of U2 songs - some i dont like such as Crumbs on Your Table

Shocking, considering it's a criticism of those who "deny for others what you demand for yourself."

There is no light at the end of the tunnel in With Or Without You? None in Love is Blindness, Running to Stand Still....and so on. It's all in your own interpretation, tis subjective, and the feelings that are generated by a Radiohead song are different from person to person...people can find light at the end of the tunnel in them, just you can't.

They would not take no for an answer

If you ignored them they would say "oh my kids, oh this that and the other"

And one kid tried to put his hand in my brothers pocket so i shoved him out the way

If you walk the streets they follow you for ages - they think just because your from the UK you must be loaded. If you gave a penny to everyone who asked you'd end up on the streets yourself.

When you stop at traffic lights they bang on your windows.

Its not just India - i dont care about homless people in the UK if they are druggies - should have thought otherwise before becoming wasters

Why not listen to songs that make you want to do something with your life rather than think "gosh, the world is a terrible place" - Radiohead caters for people who are depressed

I like Radiohead but they are massivley overrated - its clear from their lyrics and whiny frontman they need some Prozac


no, Oasis is massively overrated..

What the fuck did I miss?

If people are bitching about Radiohead being depressing, I'd love to see their reaction to Joy Division.

Yes, because every poor person got there because they were wasters and druggies. No one had a run of bad luck. None.

You have an IQ of approximately 71.

Not only do I think that assessment is wrong, I also think you're generalizing, and I think I can enjoy "feel-bad" music (if that even makes sense) if it's good and it hits you somewhere. But I don't think it makes sense.

To sum up: I disagree strongly with everything you said in that post.
It's not a lyrical thing or a musical thing for me.

The album just seems awkward, like I just hear Dollars and Cents and Morning Bell Part 2 and Life in Glasshouse and Sardines and think oooh....it's not such a beautiful day today is it, that's not to say I hate the songs, just they don't make me go out and wanna enjoy life....

It's personal, the songs might hit me, but don't hit the spot like a good block of chocolate or a good European beer or whatever......
