Why haven't they played Let Down in 10 years?

Well it seemed to me on the last tour they (or at least Thom) had completely gone off pre-00s Radiohead. Maybe he's having a change of heart.

I ended up spending more money than I should have, but I'm going tonight.

Who cares, it's Radiohead. I went to two shows and it cost me in excess of $280.

I was really surprised when I saw that it hadn't been played in such a long time. It's not like it's a cult favorite hidden in an unpopular album.

I've always assumed that it's never been played a ton because a lot of what makes it "work" on the album are vocal harmonies if Thom's voice that they can't replicate live.

Whether or not that is the true reason, I have no idea.

Regardless, it's probably the Radiohead song that won me over back in the '90's. I can strangely even remember where I was and what I was doing at the moment it won me over.

Let Down is in my Radiohead Top 5.

That sounded great.

Radiohead – A Moon Shaped Pool

Damn, this was worth every cent. The setlist was almost perfect for my Radiohead tastes: my favorite songs off In Rainbows (Weird Fishes, Reckoner), HTTT (There There, The Gloaming), Amnesiac (Pyramid Song), Kid A (Everything In Its Right Place, Idioteque), OKC (Let Down) and even Pablo Honey (Creep). And My Iron Lung and Planet Telex. Oh, and Climbing Up the Walls. Loved it.

I had a mixed reaction to the new songs. Loved Ful Stop, Identikit and The Numbers. Really incredible. But Burn the With, and to a lesser extent The Dreaming were a bit underwhelming in their live arrangements. It could have been a sound issue at the arena, though, I was pretty far up.

Ed has stated that the guitar arpeggios are difficult to play in Let Down. That and the harmonies from the record being almost impossible to replicate (although I wish they would give Ed a chance there) make it something of a rarity, since it was played only a handful of times since the OK Computer Tour, all in 2006. Judging from the band's reactions from last night, they are aware it's an enormous fan favourite.

Thom's vocals sounded pretty good. I hope it goes back into rotation and doesn't get the Subterranean Homesick Alien treatment, which seems to surface every once in awhile for a couple of times before it vanishes again.
