    2. How To Disappear Completely
    3. Where I End And You Begin
    4. Weird Fishes/Arpeggi
    5. Karma Police
    6. Like Spinning Plates

  • mmmm tough tough tough….the bends, let down, pearly, national anthem, all I need, climbing up the walls?? too many great songs to give a number one

  • i think i picked…

    how to disappear completely
    climbing up the walls
    rabbit in your headlights
    all i need
    amazing sounds of orgy
    india rubber
    i might be wrong
    pyramid song

    for now anyway.

  • holy shit I just realised I FORGOT PARANOID ANDROID. I also forgot what i voted for and put them in a random order…

  • What’s their criteria for “Radiohead song?” Why is This Mess We’re In on there? And Rabbit In Your Headlights? And for that matter Give It Up, The Chains, etc. I don’t even think Follow Me Around deserves a spot on a list like this, but it’s more understandable.

  • This is impossible…

  • they’re radiohead related…just think of it as an opportunity to give some attention to those songs

  • a tough one indeed i decided on
    2.the tourist
    4.paranoid android
    5.i might be wrong to dissapear completely
    7.a wolf at the door
    8.knives out
    9.karma police
    10.street spirit

  • bulletproof (i wish i was…)
    fake plastic trees
    everything in it’s right place
    all i need
    pyramid song
    planet telex
    there there
    talk show host

  • I agree with Ryan. “This Mess We’re In” and “Rabbit In Your Headlights” aren’t Radiohead songs. As much as I love Thom as a solo artist, Ed, Phil and the Greenwood lads are a huuuuge part of the Radiohead sound. I think it’s slighting their role in the band to include those tunes (as much as I love both UNKLE and PJ Harvey).

  • I voted but, as I am not yet ready to fully enjoy the album, I have not yet heard it, all my selections were for past albums and, even then, it’s a tough — ultimately misleading — choice:

    1. True Love Waits
    2. How to Disappear Completely
    3. Like Spinning Plates
    4. Motion Picture Soundtrack
    5. Let Down
    6. Idioteque
    7. Airbag
    8. Sit Down Stand Up
    9. Wolf at the Door
    10. Videotape (because, based on the bootleg, it’s been my favorite for over a year, but I don’t know how it turned out on the album)

    PS I’m a bit confused as to whether I submitted 5-7 in that order, though.

  • Hey, begemoth! Thanks again for uploading that Radiohead doc!

  • It’s really hard to rank Radiohead songs.

    Paranoid Android is my favorite song of all time, but after that… uh. Let Down? Idioteque? There are so many good ones. Let Down is my favorite Radiohead song that none of my friends care about, though. 😉

  • Picking an *order* was too hard, so I did kinda general-picking… I don’t remember what order I did vote for them in, but for my top ten I said:

    A Wolf at the Door (my #1)
    There There
    Where I End and You Begin
    Paranoid Android
    Let Down
    I Might Be Wrong
    Kid A
    Pyramid Song
    Weird Fishes/Arpeggi
    Bulletproof (I Wish I Was…)

  • Its so cool there are people like you in the world. I can sit back and read about people argue over Radiohead songs. They have made maybe two hundred songs and counting. I’ll take every one of them and sit back with a smile. you are great fans.

  • Eh, they’re cover of Rhinestone Cowboy wasn’t on the list 🙁

  • very difficult this top 10, but here’s mine:

    1.there there
    2.exit music (for a film)
    3.paranoid android
    4.everything in it’s right place
    5.pyramid song
    6.the national anthem
    7.fake plastic trees to disappear completely
    9.packt like sardines in a crushd tin box

  • This is just utterly impossible. Not just to pick the top ten, but to pick a favorite…. What about the ’98 version of Nude… if that was a choice, that’d be number one. Sadly, it’s not =(

  • it’s impossible…but i try

    1. paranoid android
    2. idioteque
    3. street spirit
    4. a wolf at the door
    5. exit music
    6. scatterbrain
    7. all i need
    8. fake plastic trees
    9. climbing up the wall
    10. just
    11. pyramid song
    12. i might be wrong
    13. reckoner
    14. morning bell
    15. airbag
    16. like spinning plates
    17. let down
    18. nice dream
    19. Weird Fishes/Arpeggi
    20. 15 step

    and many more……….

  • sorry but i can´t vote.
    my hands are tied.
    all musics are great.
    off course that some are better then others but… i can´t choose.

  • It´s really difficult to choose.. Every their song is great and I love each of their songs. But for this moment are for me the most amazing these songs:

    All I Need
    Climbing Up The Walls
    Pyramid Song
    I Might Be Wrong
    House Of Cards
    Everything In Its Right Place
    Exit Music
    National Anthem
    There There

    and many many many other Radiohead´s songs that are as beautiful as these are…

  • How come none of you voted for Jigsaw falling into place?! I think it’s one of their greatest songs. It deserves the top 20. But number one, I can’t decide, it’s too hard. Imposible.

  • 1. Nude
    2. Paranoid Android
    3. How To Disappear Completely
    4. Pyramid Song
    5. Let Down
    6. True Love Waits
    7. Videotape
    8. Fake Plastic Trees
    9. Like Spinning Plates
    10. The National Anthem

    This is a little bit random though. Lucky, There There, Talk Show Host, Fog.. and many more deserve to be on the list…

  • Bloody hell that was tough! Never thought about my top 10 till now. Should be a great show.

  • Opps forgot my 10

    i guess the new songs will be in the top 20 😛

  • let down
    let down
    let down
    let down
    let down
    let down

  • Damn, this is hard … like choosing between your children or something. After some consternation, I’ve come up with a Top Ten song list. But on another day I might choose differently:

    1. Karma Police
    2. Reckoner
    3. The Bends
    4. Subterranean Homesick Alien
    5. Knives Out
    6. Pyramid Song
    7. Nude
    8. Paranoid Android
    9. There There
    10. Creep

    More than just a Tope Ten collection, I tried to pick ten songs here that reflect the best of Radiohead, to my ears, from their start to the present.

    I think this is largely a ridiculous endeavor but fun nonetheless.

    2. Like Spinning Plates
    3. Big Ideas / Nude

    8. Street Spirit
    9. Where I End And You Begin
    10. High & Dry
