I realize that only people who really like the band already
are even going to read past the title of this post,
so this one's for you, guys!
I've recently begun re-loving Radiohead. They were one of my go-to pretty and fun to sing along to bands in high school, and over the years I got too "cool" or "hard core" or something for them. But now that I'm old enough to not give a care who knows what I like, I'm saying it loud and proud.
One of my walking in the snow songs of choice these days is Exit Music (for a film). If you have never listened to this song, give it a chance. You have to be alone, somewhere quiet. And wait for it. It's an excruciatingly slow build to a quick crescendo near the end of the song,
but you won't be disappointed if you just let it roll over you.
Here, I'll even do the super cool emo blogger thing and put the lyrics underneath the video,
so you can sing along if you want or whatever.
Wake from your sleep, the drying of your tears, Today we escape, we escape. Pack and get dressed before your father hears us, before all hell breaks loose. (chorus) Breathe, keep breathing, don't lose your nerve. Breathe, keep breathing, I can't do this alone. Sing us a song, a song to keep us warm, there's such a chill, such a chill. And you can laugh a spineless laugh, we hope your rules and wisdom choke you. And now we are one in everlasting peace, we hope that you choke, that you choke, etc.
Here are a couple more of my olde tyme Radiohead favorites, since I'm already totally doing this.
Just. This is one of the best music videos ever. Also, the song is catchy as hell.
Fake Plastic Trees. As a lusty teenaged girl I briefly thought I fell in love
with Thom Yorke after seeing this. (haha, ew)
Paranoid Android. I also love
singing trying to sing to this one, and the video is fantastic.
Creep. Who didn't slow dance with someone to this in middle school
and then when the chorus came on
try to headbang and totally ruined the moment? Just me?
Any other closet Radiohead lovers in the house?
