You can choose 5 Radiohead songs to preserve for all time. The rest will be destroyed and never heard again ever, because of reasons. What 5 do you preserve for humanity?

wypipobooty54

Separator, Weird fishes, There there, Subterranean homesick alien, Morning bell


i-hate-donkeys

Woah this is exactly my list! (maybe with morning bell swapped for idioteque)


Dr-McLuvin

Which version of morning bell?


wypipobooty54

Kid a version of course


mmmmr1

Lotus flower, idioteque, jigsaw falling into place, paranoid Android, How to disappear completely


Tigeruppercut1889

Shit. I forgot idioteque. This is an impossible exercise. Also struggled with the idea of living in a world without creep.

Man, this is hard. 1. Life in a Glasshouse - This one got me through such a difficult time in my life, and while it’s a total step away from Radiohead’s actual sound, this piece is a vital work of their’s that I couldn’t live without. 2. Daydreaming - AMSP is severely underrated, and while Identikit is probably my favorite, Daydreaming is arguably the best track on this record in my opinion. It gives me a feeling I can’t put into words. 3. We Suck Young Blood - The piano fall in this song is just filled with so much raw emotion, and I think the song is just timeless. 4. Optimistic - Probably my favorite Kid A song, and it’s one that’s heavily inspired countless daydreams and ideas for writing. 5. In Limbo - I can’t have just Optimistic, both tracks are sealed as one in my mind, they work so well together, and so if I choose one, I must also choose the other.

This is really hard. My picks: Planet Telex Airbag Everything in its Right Place Subterranean Homesick Alien Separator


MrSonic-Unsweet-Tea

Reckoner No Surprises Wolf at the Door The Tourist All I Need Ending it with All I Need because I haven’t heard a song in my life that I love more. Plus ending it on All I Need shows that these 5 songs are All I Need to keep going.

Idioteque And a 3 way tie for fifth place: Daydreaming, Pyramid Song, Weird Fishes / Arpeggi Albums, listed by what % of their songs were selected by at least one person: 1. In Rainbows and Kid A both had 80% of their songs picked by at least one person. Faust Arp and 15 Step were the only songs off of IR not picked by anyone, and for Kid A it was Treefingers and Kid A 2. OKC - 75% 3. TKOL and AMSP, 50% 4. Amnesiac, 40% 5. HTTT 36% 6.

1. Everything in its right place 2. The national anthem 3. How to disappear completely 4. Idioteque 5. Motion picture soundtrack Basically turns Kid A into an EP if played in that order. I stuck to just Kid A songs because I love how everything on that album fits together.
