I don't understand how anyone can have a normal top ten and an alternative top ten. The whole idea is total nonsense. I mean, if you think like that you're basically saying that the popularity of a song affects how much you like it.


I think you're thinking about this the wrong way. It's not meant to be an "official" thing, but rather, 10 songs that you really like and that we don't often see being praised. Like, put into a jar all the Pyramid Songs, Idioteques, Reckoners, etc that are "fan favourites". With what's left, pick 10 songs you like. It's fun! :thumbsup:

My comments in red

Scatterbrain
"Hail To The Thief is the weirdest Radiohead album for me. Scatterbrain used to be my least favorite track on the album, I would always skip it."
- I can never understand why people don't always like this from day one. Yeah its def one of my favourites.

Planet Telex
"Surprisingly a very easily dismissed track from The Bends, but recently I've noticed many people considering it one of the best RH songs. And it is."
- I dismissed this for years, as a mere average opener, just like 'You', but now i've realised they are both outstanding.

Bones
"Always loved this song, a lot. Ever since I got into Radiohead. The "used to fly like peter pan" line is silly, but sung with such raw emotion that it doesn't even matter. "
-Agreed

Treefingers
"Absolutely perfect track. Meditation, peace, and yet uncertainty. You need to be in the right frame of mind to enjoy this track, but once it clicks, it's a beautiful experience."
- agreed

In Limbo
I think getting into "Little By Little" helped me appreciate the layers of this track more than I used to, but seriously. Just imagine yourself on a raft out in the middle of the ocean during a storm. That's what In Limbo feels like.
- Yeah, this and the track before 'Optimistic', evoke such raw emotion.

Blow Out
"This is why you can't trust critics or even fans for that matter, because if you go by them, you'll ignore Pablo Honey. If you ignore Pablo Honey, you'll never get to hear this track."
- Dont forget the brilliant 'you' which i didn't realised was so great until i saw this

I'd also like to add the following from amnesiac, just because they are among their very best:
- Life in a glasshouse (never understand why people don't talk about this masterpiece more)
- I might be wrong
- Hunting bears
- Spinning plates

That version of "You" is pretty raw and powerful. Great song, never really considered it great until now.

All those songs you mentioned from Amnesiac are great. Life in a Glass House was always a favorite of mine. Like Spinning Plates is really powerful and captivating. You can feel it moving in the air, something grim and deathly. Hunting Bears is also a good track, it's like the treefingers of Amnesiac, both easily dismissed instrumentals. I listened to Hunting Bears once while going for a long walk in the woods and while crossing a railroad I saw a freshly decapitated deer carcass lying on the tracks. Those desolate guitar plucks suddenly had such raw emotion for me.

At the moment though "In Limbo" is my favorite song. I like the way the opening riff gets washed back by the wave of sound, swimming against the flow, bouncing back and forth between the other guitars and percussion.
