The entire meaning of the song has changed. It has gone from how awful Thom is for this woman to how awful the woman is for Thom.

It's gone from "I'm a flash flood running through your ground floor" and "You only stick with me because there are no others"

to "I'm an animal trapped in your hot car" and "I only stick with you because there are no others"

Not sure which I prefer.

How in the world is HTTT a 5? I'm a pretty damn big fan of the album and I don't think its a 5.

I know. If you look online though, they gave, Hail to the Thief, Kid A, OK Computer and The Bends 4 stars each. Amnesiac got 3.5 and Pablo Honey isn't even rated.

So, if these are initial ratings, well, it's interesting.

Pablo Honey - 2.5 stars
The Bends - 5
OK Computer - 5
Kid A - 5
Amnesiac - 4.5
Hail To The Thief - 5
HTT is a 5 and Amnesiac is a 4.5? theyre good but theyre not that good. and poor Pablo Honey. I'd give it a 3...maybe...

I think it's a 5. I know I'm in the tiny little minority but I don't care. I hear those opening notes and my heart beats a little faster and off we go.

In fact, in nitpicking IR, I would have to say that it lacks stunning opening notes. The Bends through HTTT have openers that make me happy to be alive (okay, a little dramatic but this is the place for that, right?)

I of course have no idea what this song (or any of them) is about yet. I'll get to it.

I'm not sure I know what ANY Radiohead is about. They're one band that I just don't care what Thom is singing about. I'm just happy he's singing.

I wish I could hear the lyrics when I'm listening to In Rainbows.

I would probably try not to delve too deeply into that one...I just take it as the token broken relationship tune, something that Radiohead seldom attempts.

Go print them out. They're posted on page 57 (approx.) of the last thread, part IV.

3. In Limbo
4. Let Down
5. All I Need
6. Black Star
7. Kid A
8. Pyramid Song

Something like that, anyway.

All I Need
Where I End and You Begin
Climbing Up The Walls
Gagging Order
Bodysnatchers
Just
You and Whose Army?
Idioteque
You
Everything in its Right Place

somethin' like that. I dunno. Videotape, Karma Police, Sail to the Moon, Bullet Proof... (I Wish I Was), In Limbo, and I Want None Of This are close too.

Same. I honestly don't give a flying toss what Radiohead's songs are about most of the time. Which is odd for me, because I'm very much a lyrics kind of person. They're one of the few bands I love purely for the sounds they make and the way the vocals interact with those sounds (on a purely musical level).

The ones that I do look into are good though. With Thom, I enjoyed Harrowdown Hill twice as much as I did once I found out what it was in reference to.
