Songs that there aren't others similer to them(in music style), in RH's discography.

Those are good ones, greek tourist. I dont think I'd add anything really. I might put 15 step or melatonin in there, but 15 step might be a stretch after the new songs, and melatonin isn't so hot

this is a pretty great list. I really wish there were more songs like A Wolf at the Door and Life in a Glasshouse. I feel like The King of Limbs is the only album where all the songs sort of feel like they're very closely related. With albums like Kid A and Hail to the Thief, you never knew what was coming next. I love TKOL, but it's just a bit more predictable than their other albums.

Give Up the Ghost is pretty unlike anything else they've done, and stands apart from the rest of TKOL.
The most terrifying thing is to accept oneself completely.

I think Myxomatosis should be in there as well. No other RH song even similar to it IMO.

 

EDIT: And also Hunting Bears, even if it is an interlude.  :ph34r:

To me it seems like the band often chooses the opener slot for their "unique" songs, often with a sound that stands out from the rest of the album or that is different from their discography altogether.

 

Consider Airbag, 15 Step and Bloom. These have a sound that really stand out on their respective albums. What's interessting is that they all have a pretty big emphasis on the drum section as the driving force behind their unique sound.
