Also I fucking love Electioneering. Maybe, maybe, it's OK Computer's 'Ignoreland', but better, and still pretty relevant to the larger theme (unlike Ignoreland).

Oh, ok. I haven't seen a version online from any show in the last ten years, but in all fairness, i wasn't looking very hard.

They played it when I saw them, it's never been a favourite but it was really cool. Thom's snarling over piano is funny and then the drums and guitars come crashing in.

I don't know if Radiohead could ever record something as dumb as Ignoreland.

Laz deriding Ignoreland is one of the trademark features of B&C.

It wasn't the (alleged) dumbness I was thinking of so much as it sticking out like a sore thumb on an album that otherwise sounds quite different to it.

The Tourist is probably my least favorite song on OK Computer. It's good stuff, but the ultra-slow tempo paired with Thom in his high register has a tendency to grate on me when I'm not in the mood for it (We Suck Young Blood has a similar problem, only that song is terrible). The solo usually wins me back over.

That's probably the most negative thing I have to say about the album as a whole.

Unpopular opinion: I don't like No Surprises. I've never liked it. I get it, I get what they were going for there, and I respect it and all. But I don't like it. Partly because by that point in the album we've already had Fitter Happier and a few other iterations of this theme and it feels a little like overegging the matter. No big deal, the last two songs carry the album nicely home.

I think Lucky is the best song on OK Computer, absolutely adore it. I'm not too sure how highly it's ranked by Radiohead fans. If they disagree, I'll fight them anyway.

Lucky is definitely up there, among my favourites. That, Let Down and Karma Police were probably what first turned me on to the album. Oh and Airbag. That too.

I was so happy to hear Lucky on the In Rainbows tour that I just about cried.

The only reason I'm not furious that I'm missing the fantastic AMSP tour is because I already saw the perfect Radiohead show. Like Spinning Plates, Fake Plastic Trees, Lucky, Just, Planet Telex, the entirety of In Rainbows, I got all of it in one night.

Next time they come back to LA I'll be ready though.

Pyramid Song, You and Whose Army and I Might Be Wrong are played fairly regularly.

The Tourist is my least favorite on OKC and LeMel perfectly explained why. Electioneering is my second least favorite. But both those songs are still good of course.
