I'm still going with "there there", "sail to the moon", and "2+2=5".
obvious, but I'm really into melody and less avant garde these days.

Cool idea for a thread. I think half of interland owns HTTT.

My top five today:

5. Backdrifts
4. The Gloaming
3. 2 + 2 = 5
2. There there.
1. Sit down. Stand up.

It'll be a week or so before I can declare a top five...

but in the mean time, this satisfies my craving for not one, but multiple Radiohead threads.

I'm particularly fond of Wolf at the Door, maybe it's just me but I love the way he plays with the wolf at the door theme. I keep the wolf from the door but he calls me up on the phone.

Also Punchup at a Wedding is one of their best songs so far, definitely in the vein of Life in a Glasshouse and such, though very different at the same time.

Not being inclined to a High Fidelity life, I won't make lists, but 'I Will' is another that deserves high mention. I think the piano is all over this album. Have Radiohead used a piano so extensively before? Probably not. Also love the fuzzy guitar thing on songs like Myxamotosis and There There.

what is it about human nature, if indeed it is even our nature, to rank and order things?
