I don't mean songs that you can listen to over and over, I mean songs that no matter how many times you've heard them you still think "damn, that's an amazing song".

 

For me:

 

Pyramid Song

Bodysnatchers

All I Need

Street Spirit

Paranoid Android

Cuttooth

In Limbo

Exit Music

I'll give you two lists!

First, the list you asked for:

You
Just
Black Star
Street Spirit
Let Down
How to Disappear Completely
I Might Be Wrong
WIEAYB
There There
Reckoner

But a list that's equally as interesting to me are the songs I would've expected to always impress me that have, for one reason or another (changing tastes, overplayed them, etc), have lost their flair:

Creep
My Iron Lung
Paranoid Android
Kid A (aside from HTDC--just the album in general doesn't impress me as much as it did those first few years)
Videotape (still love it, but I used to NEVER be able to skip it. Now it doesn't bother me at all to pass it up on a playthrough)

Ahhh, this is tough.  Here are songs that still wow me.

 

Airbag

No Surprises

Jigsaw Falling Into Place

A Wolf At the Door

Optimistic

You and Whose Army

2+2=5

Pearly

Climbing Up the Walls

Just

 

There are probably others, but these join the ranks of some of the finest songs that my ears have ever come across.

I see what you mean, that's how I feel about HTDC, Lucky and Reckoner. 

 

and then of course there are songs that maybe weren't as good the first few times you listened to them and then one day for whatever reason you realized were great.

I played a lot of these albums to death but the one that has always blown my mind:

Nude

Its not quite my favorite, but I've never been sick of it. It amazes me every time.

There are a good 10 songs I'd put in the "oh my god amazing" category, but the two that trump everything else, Reckoner and Weird Fishes. Out of this world amazing

Karma Police, because "for a minute there i lost myself" is still one of the greatest things in music. I know people are sick of this song but I hope after some distance it will regain the respect it deserves.

 

edit: also there there because every time i hear it i think that song is perfect.

I concur.  One of my favorite Radiohead moments in any song, along with the outro to Reckoner, in particular the live version.
