Let's show our appreciation for...

Bodysnatchers.

One of Radiohead's all-time greatests rock songs, that's only sure to get better as they continue to record the massively anticipated LP7.

I do not
Understand
What it is
I've done wrong
Full of holes
Check the pulse
Blink your eyes
One for yes
Two for no

I have no idea what I am talking about
I'm trapped in this body and can't get out
Ooooohhhh

Has the light gone out for you?
Cause the light's gone for me
You can fight it like a dog
And they brought me to my knees
They got scared and they put me in
They got scared and they put me in
All the lies run around my face
And for anyone else to see

I'm alive

Make a sound
Move back home
Get an invitation
With the edges
Sawn off

I have no idea what I am talking about
I'm trapped in this body and can't get out
Ooooohhhh

Has the light gone out for you?
Cause the light's gone for me
And you can draw it out of me
It is the 21 century
And they find me at the top
And they brought me to my knees
They got scared and they put me in
They got scared and they put me in
All the lies run around my face
All the lies run around my face
And for anyone else to see
ANd for anyone else to see

I'm alive

I've seen it coming


And here's a wickedly awesome video of the track performed during the 2006 Bonnaroo festival.

I massively anticipate nothing


I like the "And they brought me to my knees" line though
very Bono-esque

I have this song on my itunes but don't know how it goes. Haven't listened to it enough obviously.

C'mon now! That's one line in a song compared to Bono's 'kneel' and 'knees' cliche. It's not a crime to use the word once in a while. But it looks bad when overused, doesn't it?

lyrics-wise, thom yorke should be compared to michael stipe, not bono. thom yorke is michael stipe + fear and anxiety.

I'm been absolutely ga-ga over Lift too these days for some reason. It's easily the band's best unreleased old track, and easily in my top 10 Radiohead songs of all time. I was reading a lot of stuff over at the terrifying ateaseweb message boards about how well Lift would work closing LP7, and I couldn't agree more. It's just fucking amazing, and besides, Radiohead are quite notorious for reworking older tracks and creating something amazing for new albums (see Motion Picture Soundtrack and others). Nude is also an oldie, and it's already a stand-out among the new songs.

What I'm saying is, LP7 kicks ass, Bodysnatchers fucking rocks, and if there's any chance we'll see a proper recording of Lift in the near future, I may need to pick up some adult diapers.

I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say I much prefer Thom's vocal approach to the Basement Tapes version of Videotape than that of the live versions I've heard. I just looooooove the more reserved ending of the song with Thom humming. Ace.

I'm praying for a Spring/Early Summer release with a tour in the fall. That would be simply scrumtralescent.

actually I prefer the hammersmith version, the first time they debuted the song...

it had this awesome buildup that they took out in the later versions......

listen to it here.....
hxxp://download.ysi.com/E2B616F379AF9432

listen to the part where Thom sings

This is my way of saying goodbye
Because I can't do it face to face


the song build up to this EXPLOSIVE moment


hope they put it back in the recorded version
