Oh no, the next line makes it even better. True love like some abandoned ghost child locked in the attic, living on sweets.

I heard both during a festival set for the In Rainbows tour. They were fantastic. You and Whose Army? got a much better reception than Dollars & Cents from the crowd. But that may have been due to the latter's placement right after Paranoid Android.

Radiohead – A Moon Shaped Pool

Yes. The line absolutely crushes me. Paired with the piano and what sounds like rain gently tapping on a roof, it's one of the most desolate moments of their discography.

Therein lies the complexity of the verse; love is a beautiful AND potentially destructive force that people find in awful and wholesome places. What really drives home the verse and makes it that much more powerful is the musical arrangement of the song, what it was in its live form and what it became after a devastating period of Thom's life. What love gives and what love takes away.

Another one of my favorite songs taps into this duality, The Mountain Goats' "Love Love Love"

King Saul fell on his sword when it all went wrong
And Joseph's brothers sold him down the river for a song
And Sonny Liston rubbed some tiger balm into his glove
Some things you do for money and some you do for love, love, love

Raskolnikov felt sick, but he couldn't say why
When he saw his face reflected in his victim's twinkling eye
Some things you'll do for money and some you'll do for fun
But the things you do for love are going to come back to you one by one

Love, love is going to lead you by the hand
Into a white and soundless place
Now we see things as in a mirror, dimly
Then we shall see each other face to face

And way out in Seattle, young Kurt Cobain
Snuck out to the greenhouse, put a bullet in his brain
Snakes in the grass beneath our feet, rain in the clouds above
Some moments last forever, but some flare out with love, love, love

They're streaming the Lollapalooza set in about an hour:

So Disclosure had to cancel due to a delayed flight from Chicago.

So they're giving Radiohead an extra half an hour! Woohoo!

Only 6 new songs in the setlist? Ehh.

Also 5 from OK Computer seems unnecessary.

Seems a bit odd that they've dropped Decks Dark and Desert Island Disk for festival shows when they're still playing full-length sets.

I have no desire to see Creep performed, ever.

Probably in the bottom 10-15 songs of their catalogue, like most of Pablo Honey.

I never listen to it in the context of the record, but it was really fun live, and got one of the best reactions from the crowd. Very nice moment in the show.

Dollars & Cents is a hard song to pull off, I imagine. I personally love it to pieces, but the average joe's mileage may vary, especially when Thom is too coked up to really give a shit. I jest, I jest.
