Exit Music is the first Radiohead song I fell in love with.

Definitely Fake Plastic Trees.

I'm one of those in the minority that prefers The Bends, anyway.

I love Fake Plastic Trees but Exit Music is just an incredible, incredible, chilling, haunting piece of work. It just keeps building and building and building until the HUGE but short-lived crescendo/climax, and concludes with Thom's chilling vocal, 'we hope.....that you choke......that you cho-oke.......we hope.....that you choke.....that you cho-oke.....'

Fake Plastic Trees is a great, great, great song as well, but Exit Music is better imo.

I prefer Exit Music, although Fake Plastic Trees is superb as well. The mood of the former is so damn palpable, especially in the half-whispered vocals of the initial verse and the more dramatic parts towards the end.

Not that I don't love Exit Music, but Fake Plastic Trees still gets to me after so many listens.

That being said, How to Disappear Completely owns both of them.

I can't pick. It's just too much for me to think about. Both ramp up perfectly.

Exit Music made me fall in love with Radiohead, and up to this day it is still my favourite song by them.

I actually say this in my mind while listening

Exit Music. It's pretty much everything that's great about Radiohead.

I prefer Fake Plastic Trees. But I still I think OK Computer is the better album . I know that sounds backwards, but stilll. Fake Plastic Trees is a single to me. It is a brilliant piece of music on it's own, and it works beautifully on the singles collection that is The Bends. But OK Computer is such an album-oriented piece of work that Exit Music works better in context.

Fitter Happier is the worst "song" on OK Computer. If anyone tries to tell me it's an artistic statement or some shit like that, I will fight you.

Oh, and Fake Plastic Trees

i never much cared much for electioneering until i saw a video of them performing it live on jay leno.

jonny's the hero, of course. makes it that much better.

plus the clip on meeting people is easy makes me wet my pants.

i picked fake plastic trees, by the way.
