I'll take Fitter Happier at #76 as a win.

I can transcribe it later on tonight when I get back home if no one has started on it!

Short thoughts:
Sad to see "Climbing Up the Walls" so low; I consider it one of the most unique moments on OK Computer, and it's doing well in Best of the B-Sides here

Hell yes to "Talk Show Host" placing high. It should be considered a Radiohead classic by this point, and probably would be one of their biggest hits if it fit onto an album.

I'm also really happy to see "Motion Picture Soundtrack" nearly in the top 10. One of the saddest songs ever recorded, and a perfect closer to Kid A. The lyrics and Yorke's vocals are stunning, and that moment where it suddenly turns into this pseudo-Disney track with the harps and distant backing vocals paints such a perfect picture of a relationship that will never heal. I was hoping to get this into Best of the B-Sides, but "Morning Bell" is at least doing well.
If I could begin to be, half of what you think of me,
I could do about anything, I could even learn how to love.

Oh damn, I love "Pop Is Dead." :music-rockon:

Sometimes I get the impression on these lists that they put all their focus on getting the top half right and then the bottom is thrown together with little regard for the placements. Bleu, you're absolutely right about "Climbing Up the Walls." But I think the most striking thing about this list is they're basically saying "All I Need" is the best track from In Rainbows. Great song, no doubt, but far too many amazing songs on that record for that one to stand out, in my opinion.

Nevermind their ranks, the top 31 are all essential listen, great job there! Still there are some songs that are ranked too low for my taste (little love for The King of Limbs from CoS eh): 51. Jigsaw Falling Into Place, 52. Exit Music (For A Film), 71. Lotus Flower, 83. Codex, 141. Little By Little.

My Top 10 Radiohead songs are:
10. Idioteque
9. Lucky
8. Everything in Its Right Place
7. No Surprises
6. Exit Music (For a Film)
5. High and Dry
4. Creep
3. Paranoid Android
2. Karma Police
1. Fake Plastic Trees

What's yours?

If we're talking about Radiohead's entire discography, it seems to me that the nineteenth position for Creep is a perfect place for that song.

OK, I'm just gonna come out and say it (and I basically said as much on the "Someone explain Kid A to me" thread anyway): Idioteque is way overrated, especially with the way CoS fawns over it (10th-greatest song of all time???).
