Why would you want to go there?

John Mellencamp is there.

Don't disparage my hometown like that. Oh wait, you're right.

I'm surprised people like Let Down as much as they do. It was kind of a ... heh ... let down to me.

Yeah, me too. I thought it was almost universally regarded as one of the weakest songs on OK Computer, after Fitter Happier of course.

I'm surprised that people think this.

Everyone I've ever discussed OK Computer with has always mentioned Let Down and Airbag as the best songs on the album. I thought that was the popular opinion.

2. How To Disappear Completely
3. Idioteque
4. Let Down
5. Pyramid Song
6. Street Spirit (Fade Out)
7. Fake Plastic Trees
8. There There (Boney King of Nowhere)
9. Everything In its Right Place
10. Karma Police
11. Exit Music (For a Film)
12. Reckoner
13. Nude
14. Lucky
15. 2+2=5 (The Lukewarm)
16. No Surprises
17. Climbing Up The Walls
18. Airbag
19. National Anthem
20. Weird Fishes/Arpeggi
21. Jigsaw Falling Into Place


not that it matters...

Nothing will ever surprise me as much as the love for How to Disappear. Boring, boring, boring, not even close to one of their better ballads.

You call that a chorus?

I suppose Let Down probably seems a little too lightweight, trivial and cruisy, if you compare it with the extraordinary and truly out-there sound of some of the other songs (Paranoid, Exit Music, No Surprises, Lucky) which aren't necessarily better songs, just more memorable and left-field

How is "Lucky" considered left-field? It seems like a pretty straight-forward verse, chorus, verse, chorus, guitar solo, chorus song to me.
