    A friend reccomended them, and I really liked some of their songs, espically "a wolf at the door" and another one about being on a beach with a guitar, cant remember the name :p . Could anyone reccomend some other songs by them since there are so many?

    Anyone can play guitar is the beach one. My personal faves are

    Creep - even though it's the most popular of their songs.
    Exit Music (For a Film)
    Everything in its right place
    Talk Show Host
    True Love Waits
    No Surprises
    Lucky
    Karma Police

    They all kick ass.

    Just get hold of:

    The bends
    Ok computer
    Kid A

    All fantastic albums which all sound different from eachother

    Amnesiac is very good as well, pablo honey isnt great and im not a big fan of the new album, although it is decent.

    I really would advise listening to the albums, they are master pieces and need to be appreciated as a whole "experince" !!!!!!!! :D

    Where is Maquiladora from? I've got that and "How Can You Be Alive" and "India Rubber" amongst my favourites, but sadly only on mp3. It would be great to get it on CD properly.

    Just get all their albums. Each and every one has some classic songs and most should be heard in their entirity to be fully appreciated (especially OK Computer onwards).

    Picking out individual songs is tough, but i'll give it a go.

    From Pablo Honey:
    Creep
    Anyone Can Play Guitar

    From The Bends
    High and Dry
    Fake Plastic Trees
    Nice Dream
    Black Star
    Streep Spirit


    From OK Computer
    (I could list every track but I won't)
    Paranoid Android
    Exit Music
    Karma Police
    No Surprises
    Lucky

    From Kid A
    National Anthem
    Optimistic
    How To Disappear Completely

    From Amnesiac
    Pyramid Song
    Knives Out
    Dollars and Cents

    From Hail To THe Theif
    The Gloaming
    A Punch-up At A Wedding
    Myxamatosis
    A WOlf At The Door

    I don't profess to be Radiohead's biggest fan, but do you mean The Bends?

    The only good songs to come from Radiohead except maybe karma police come from their first two albums. And the first album is only mentioned because of Creep.

    The Bends, High and Dry, Street Spirit, My Iron Lung, Creep. Best 5 songs from them.

    Creep
    Just
    My Iron Lung
    Airbag
    Paranoid Android
    Subterranian Homesick Alien
    Exit music
    Let down
    Karma police....


    Wait a minute theres a pattern emerging here :p

    Other than the whole of Ok computer and those already mentioned...
    Everything in its right place
    Wolf at the door
    2+2=5

    Was never a huge fan of the newer stuff...

    Doh. For some reason I always call that album High and Dry. I've no idea why I have that particular brain malfunction.

    all their albums are great (apart from pablo honey!) so here a few of the less obvious ones that haven't been mentioned so far:

    you (ok, ok so its from pablo honey)
    bishops robes
    pearly*
    polyethylene
    fog
    cuttooth
    like spinning plates (live)
    life in a glasshouse
    nude (old version)
    arpeggi
    big boots
    lift (old version)

    i think my two favourite songs are let down and the old version of nude though.. ahh.. so pretty.

    I think Radiohead fans are extremely harsh to Pablo Honey. I really like it as a pop/acoustic album and it's a bit unfair to write it off because it's not as deep as their other work. Sometimes I don't want the dark soundscapes of The Bends.

    Let Down (from OK Computer) is also a great song :), dont think it's been mentioned yet

    Street Spirit is also another amazing one :)
