    It's not that it's a bad song, of course. There are no bad tracks on the album. It's just that all the others, except for Here Come The Blues are real "Jackson C. Frank" type songs, you know? Haha. It doesn't really flow with the rest of the album.

    I do like the guitar playing on it, but I don't really like the lyrics. For example: "Keep your eye on freedom's shore". I find it very lame and typical of the era it was written in.
    Yeah, I get what you mean. It's kinda interruptive with its starkly different tone and delivery, though I'm not bothered by it. It's kinda like what you said about Nick Drake's upbeat songs - It's nice to hear a different side of him for a change.

    I actually really like that line. Not the words themselves (I rarely pay attention to lyrics) but the urgency with which they are delivered. It feels like it's important.

    I do like You Never Wanted Me, alot (It's one of the best songs about a failed relationship ever), but the guitar is too similar to what he plays in Blues Run the Game, and that's why I ranked it so low.
    ... and I think this is one of the rare occassions when the lyrics actually influence my opinion of a song. Because the album end on such a downer, I usually feel like wallowing in sadness some more and play the album from start to finish one or two more times.

    I find it strange that you would place Yellow Walls last. I think it's a great song, the words are really good, there are just other great songs that I like slightly more for certain reasons, that I had to place them before that one, haha.

    I also find it strange that you would place Dialogue third from last..

    Those songs just don't excite me much. I'm more for the melody/atmosphere/"feel" of a song than trying to dig deeper for a message. Even though they're not bad songs and definetely have their place on the album, I think most of the other songs are stronger melodically and instrumentally.

    for The Seer rankings, except I would have ranke Song for a Warrior higher. My other favorites are The Seer Returns, Mother of the World, and The Seer. Lunacy is good too.

    However...

    I can't forgive you for placing No Surprises, Karma Police and Climbing Up the Walls so low, beneath even Airbag and Subterranean Homesick Alien. No Surprises and Climbing Up the Walls are in the top 5 for me, easily.
    Ranking the tracks on OK Computer was really tough for me - I'm in love with ALL of them except for "Electioneering". I felt weird about ranking "Fitter Happier" at all, because it's more of an interlude than a song but it's so chilling and crucial to album's concept. (I have a Radiohead poster with its lyrics on my wall.) I think the band/producers made the right decision in putting it in the middle of the album instead of as the opening track.

    "Let Down" never fails to blow me away and is my 3rd favorite Radiohead song ever. So many remarkable things about it - the dissonance between the upbeat music and depressing subject matter, the rising desperation in Thom's voice...the verse that starts with "shell smashed/juices flowing/wings twitch" always gets me the most because of its imagery and the delusional way he sings "someday I am gonna grow wings". I'm easily affected by music and tear up often, but this remains one of the few songs that's ever truly made me cry. I love Radiohead's newest albums (TKOL and In Rainbows), but it doesn't punch me in the gut the way this stuff does.

    It's a great song, and a welcome moment of calm to catch your breath after the exhausting first half. But for me, their hardhitting, hypnotic, manic, droning and apocalyptic songs always had the bigger appeal.

    I think Fitter, Happier is a great track even as an individual track taken out of its context. It kinda summarizes the vision of the whole album: A portrayal of a cold, sterile and detached societal hell.

    Yeah, it's probably the most positive sounding song on there, but it definetely has the greatest emotional affect. It's in my top 3 Radiohead songs as well, together with Idioteque and How to Disappear Completely.

    In Rainbows is actually tied with OK Computer for me. I enjoy the warm and intimate feeling of it. And even though it doesn't reach the highs of Let Down and Climbing Up the Walls, I think it's a better overall effort.

    Kid A still reigns supreme, though.
