Radiohead 'Lift'

alrighty then...
so to the best of my knowledge, this IS an unreleased song. i'm not sure if a proper studio recording exists, but this song was rumored to be in the running for inclusion on 'ok computer'. Called 'lift', this is from another fine recording - this time the pinkpop festival 5/27/96- a little before computer dropped. it's majestic, one of my favorite radiohead songs. scratching my head as to why it was never on an ep or anything. enjoy, this song rocks.

if there's interest, i can see about uploading this entire show. peace

Haha! Fantastic! I was about to upload this last night after seeing that Glastonbury 1994 thread of yours.

This is my all-time favourite Radiohead song! First time I heard it I was gobsmacked! Absolutely fantastic track.
In my top 3 favourite songs of all time

The Pink Pop '96 version will always be the best! They should just release that recording at some point or the video on some sort of compilation DVD...

Thanks a bunch...I have it, but not nearly in the quality of this file. I think you're correct about it being tossed in the Ok Computer sessions. It's got more of a Pablo Honey feel to it, so perhaps that explains the exclusion.

I can't access the site. Is this the song at the end of "Meeting People is Easy"?
