or do they get away with it because none of their vocals are used?
I'm sure there's some stuff on pablo honey that's worse.
It's a piece of shit.
"Fake Plastic Trees". "Fitter Happier" was just paving the way for Kid A.
I'm getting lynched tonight, aren't I?
its just been mauled by everyone ever by being overplayed to HELL
although the worst radiohead song is blaitently on Pablo Honey.
Fitter Happier has provided much entertainment
Stop Whispering is worse.
Or that Tell Me Bitch song where Thom's voice is on a pitch shifter, it's got a drum machine and Jonny tried to make it sound ska. Does On A Friday count? It's the same band.
Stop Whispering was my favourite song in the world.
Incorrect. You just have staid and unadventurous taste in music.
End of Thread.
.....are the Gameshow bits on 3 Feet High and Rising songs ?
cos I read the lyrics before I listened to the actual track.... but I was sadly mistaken, and my unceasing bitterness stops ok computer being my favourite radiohead album.
How Do You? is worse than Fitter Happier.
Yes it is.
It has words. Song.
No, because 'it' in that instance was 'music', wiseass! ;)
just being a dickhead. x
"Songs contain vocal parts that are performed, 'sung,' and generally feature words (lyrics)"
Because songs without singing - or for that matter, words - are just music.
Fitter Happier has lyrics and is therefore a song.
is cher not singing in Believe because she uses a vocoder?
because the same thing is happening, a human is inputting data into an electronic device and producing sound.
otherwise it's a banana. or a trout.
They don't sing. They rap. I think a song is an piece of music with any vocals.
they're not songs. "rap songs" pah. they're raps. tracks.
*runs away crying*
I didn't realise some people didn't know what instrumentals are.
my favourite part of the album, and i'm not saying that to be contrary
no longer empty and frantic
like a cat
tied to a stick,
that's driven into
frozen winter shit
healthier and more productive
in a cage
You can't say it's not resonant
it is an interlude. and it works well.
it's hardly meant to be listened to as a stand-alone song. In its place, in the middle of that album, it works.
is definitely the worst song, just because it all goes so disappointing after an awesome start, and suddenly becomes absolutely crap as soon as he starts singing "and if the world does turn...etc"
stupid song, it always makes me cringe when the chorus comes in :(
i LOVE some bits of it, but that makes it all the more disappointing when the SHITTY SHIT CRAP chorus comes in
But I agree completely about how it starts well and then goes into a really shit chorus. As I said somewhere else in this thread, Vegetable is probably the worst for me.
i never knew you thought this.
it's self-indulgent pap.
It's more of a bridge between Karma Police and Electioneering
I usually consider it as more of a bridge than a song seeing as the title is written in much smaller text than the rest of the songs on the back of the case.
If I don't include Fitter Happier as a song, my least favourite is probably Vegetable.
thats for sure
I can't think of a bad song really by them.
and I'm not a huge fan or anything.
this trac works well in the contex of the album
I can't imagine anybody in their right mind would demand them to bring it out at a live show, but it does work extremely well (esp. on headphones) within the context of the album.
Having said that, I've always though that it might have been even more effective segueing into Climbing Up The Walls, not Electioneering.
It works perfectly in its place in the album. And the lyrics are brilliant.
Also, the music itself is haunting.
It's probably my favourite Radiohead song/piece/whatever. Seriously.
it's not a song, it's a transition between two tracks. it's not supposed to be treated like an individual track you can download, it's part of an album, as in a good old-fashioned album that functions as a work of art, not a collection of individual songs. in that respect it works perfectly for me.
is not only radioheads worst song, but a strong contender for the crapest song title ever.
worst radiohead song ever;
morning bell; amnesiac
completely pointless, and makes Amnesiac look like a leftovers album, when it's actually pretty good.
should all get over radiohead. there are better bands that make less fuss of being much better.
oh and fitter happier is a song. so shut up.
it's not a song.
calling 'fitter happier' a song is like calling something by marco v or tiesto a 'song'. or it's like calling various hip hop skits or various album intros 'songs'. if people are going to insist that 'fitter happier' a song, then they need to rethink their terms of definition. it makes you sound like you don't know anything about music
Not a song.
Not a song.
Not a song.
Not a song.
It's a track.
but the lyrics look incredibly patronising when you read them off the page.
Have you missed the point?
the song 'kid a' is an awful song of nothingness. Unless theres some totally wierd level on which I don't appreciate it
Kid A isn't really a song as there's no human vocals,
And it's great nonetheless
need to hear a live version.
i downloaded one from some link off one of the (countless) fansites and its amazing.
Every song on Pablo Honey is worse than Fitter Happier....and also the bends.
It all began with OK Computer, up until that they were just finding themselves.
