Radiohead Does It Now, Again

To answer some of the questions I have been getting about what music I have been listening to when working on new ideas and developing new things, I only have a one-word answer: Radiohead.
And I can never say enough about their brilliance. And because, as a grateful music-ista, I know not to bite the hand that feeds me. Because they were first, other great acts I love exist. And since we all nourish each other somehow in this big circle of creativity where some contribute more than others, I know I am impotent sans great soundtracks.
So, tip of the hat today goes to my newly rediscovered and much loved Radiohead: musicians who unapologetically wear their existentialism on their sleeve.
The following song is what I have been listening to consistently when creating new things.

Ah, Radiohead. I figured you liked them as you're such a fan of Keane, Sterephonics and other Radiohead-influenced acts.
This is a super song!!

I need to hear the iPod piece again. You list the genres there, ja?
Good on Radiohead. I concur!

This is a great song. I like how he always sounds like he's in the process of reading Nietzsche or Sartre or something.

I absolutely love this song. It's mellow enough to let one type. I can see the appeal.

Oh, I get it. Radiohead 'DOES' it now, like that's what the doctor ordered kind of thing, yes?

I feel like most British indie rock bands of the 2000's sound at least a little bit like Radiohead. They have had a wide influence.

Ok, this sentence I like a whole lot.
"And since we all nourish each other somehow in this big circle of creativity where some contribute more than others, I know I am impotent sans great soundtracks."
We all support one another, after all.

Great song but a band that needs to get mad respect. They don't just get music, they get literature, too.

First there was Radiohead, then the rest.

They can't be overrated....

Radiohead will never go out of style. They have enough courage to expose their human weakness and that's what makes them relatable, hence always en vogue.
Also a fan, as you know.
