I don't know how much to take from what I said earlier. I'm kinda wasted right now. Celebrating and all. <3 OK Computer, , <3 the Bends. Much love to all Radiohead recordings. Esp. those two and all of Kid A...

A ridiculously easy choice. I Fake Plastic Trees while Exit Music, for me, is one of those "also there" tracks. Good but not exceptional.

Fake Plastic Trees no doubt... One of the first Radiohead songs I fell in love with, and my current favourite by them.

Without doubt, Exit Music.

I'm content with my consideration that all songs from OK Computer are better than anything The Bends has to offer.

The Bends for me, is an average album at best, whereas OK Computer is a timeless classic.

Same applies for these two songs. Exit Music is a joy to listen to, while Fake Plastic Trees is, in comparison, just another song by some average sounding band.

Exit Music all the way.....

Exit Music by a landslide. I've never cared much for Fake Plastic Trees. Exit Music is one of the reasons why I'm so attached to Radiohead. That song basically epitomises the sound of desperation.

We hope...that you choke...that you choke...

The last time Thom sings that is just so...I can't put it into words.

Exit Music.


I'm surprised at all the Exit Music hate. On my first listen ever to OKC, the immediate standouts were Airbag first and Exit Music second.

i agree stevo. while fake plastic trees is a great song and a fine piece of music, exit music is just extraordinarily incredible - and unique.

One of the best rock songs Radiohead put out. Jonny's guitar is amazing.

story of my life, right there.
I love the wordplay about the plastic surgeon, too.

I wish I could write a sarcastic song and love song at the same time.

I don't know if there are any Toad the Wet Sprocket fans on here, but their lead singer, Glen Phillips, does a solo version of Exit Music live that is pretty damn good. That being said, Fake Plastic Trees still wins.
