Nude, pissed

Don't say you already knew this song and didn't bother to tell me about it.

I like Radiohead but have never seen them live, so if you're a super-fan don't take this wrong because it's the highest compliment I can pay: This song is the closest thing I've heard to Jeff Buckley since Jeff Buckley.

Double click either play arrow if you have trouble with the video:

Heart-stoppingly beautiful. They've been performing Nude in concert since 1997, but the recent In Rainbows is the first time they committed it to an album.

P.S. Alicia, I'm going through my Buckley stuff this weekend! For reals!

The title of this post pretty much describes my early 20's.

Ah, Radiohead. I'm not a fan of all of their songs but there a few that I can sit back and close my eyes too. Nude being one of those. Especially when you have a slight buzz going on.

@Taj: Damn! You made another good point: a much better post title would have been "Nude, buzzed, pissed". This is why I am convinced you & I were separated at birth. I totally agree on Radiohead, too; which is why I've never seen them live. But. BUT! This song? I could listen to this song for hours.

Stunning indeed. I have always considered myself a music conissour (sp?) even though it's been years since I can really claim to be. Seeing as I have never heard this song either I guess it's time to GIVE IT UP.

I was expecting a totally different kind of post when I first read the title.

Are you going to Lolla? We could meet up and see them togehter!

I don't really know too many songs by Radiohead, but I do have a KILLER album called Radiodread by The Easy Star All-Stars. It's a reggae/dub remix of the Radiohead album O.K. Computer. They also remixed a kick A version of Dark Side of the Moon. If you like reggae or dub, check it out.

I was unaware of this song myself. Guess I'm going to have to keep closer tabs on them!Radiohead is great. My favorite song{s} of theirs are Karma Police, and their cover of Pink Floyd's "Wish You Were Here".

@DonMillsDiva: NEVER give it up!!!

@CherryRide: I couldn't help myself. I'm not going to Lolla this year, but I will definitely see you at House of Blues at some point. That's my "special place". Well, not my SPECIAL PLACE, but you get what I'm sayin'!

@Spammon: Leave it to you to introduce me to something like Radiodread. You should really e-mail me the syllabus so I know to expect these things. Awesome.

@Linds: YES on Karma Police!!! I haven't heard their WYWH cover.
