Mine would be "Just" followed closely by "My Iron Lung", "The Trickster", "You", and "Exit Music (From A Film)".

I used to be a HUGE Radiohead fan (since Pablo Honey), but after the last 2 "albums" (I use that term loosely), I don't see myself ever buying a new Radiohead CD again.

"I've Seen it All" is what got me started
my brother is the Radiohead fan and I am the Bjork fan- but, at that point, our paths came together
I'd have to say "Fake Plastic Trees," "Optimistic," and "I've Seen it All" but I don't have the most educated opinion- I'm still getting to know their music

Mine would easily be "SULK" from The Bends.

hey Burnt alive I don't blame you but I loved Kid A.......Amnesiac should have stayed b-sides.

Optimistic is one song i cannot stand.......it has no place on Kid A .........at all.


I'll blab once again......don't buy the rip-off live album coming in November. EP worth of tracks for an LP price=bullsh!t.

that's a tough question, but i think meeting in the aisle is one of the catchiest sogs i've ever heard. i actually looped it and copied it onto a cd about 20 times. i can listen to it over and over, especially when i'm driving.

I like that song where it's like "Can you take me hiiiigher".. Oh wait...

monkeyboy I've looped Meeting in the Aisle for hours as well...

Creep (sorry, still the best IMO)

Let Down
No Surprises
Rabbit in the Headlights
(yes, I know, not Radiohead)
Street Spirit (Fade Out)

I wasn't a big fan of the Radiohead DVD...

In other news the guy's name is THOM Yorke... Thom.

Without a doubt 'Let Down' I think it is
(Track before Karma Police on OK Computer)

I remember someone a while back posting a list of the Radiohead singles and b-sides. Anyone happen to have that list handy?

Edit: Mistakenly identified the track as 'Exit Music (For a Film)', although tracks 1 - 5 on OK Computer is about as good as music gets.

The track before Karma Police is Let Down. Exit Music is before Let Down. I would also like someone to post all the b-sides and unreleased tracks. Thanks.

The Bends
1.Just
2.My Iron Lung
3.Planet Telex

OK Computer
1.Paranoid Android (contender for greatest song of all time
2.Karma Police
3.Subterranean Homesick Alien

Kid A
1.How to Dissapear Completely
2.The National Anthem
3.Optimistic

My favorite though is "Paranoid Android"
