FPT's - Top 15 Radiohead Songs

I do realize that I am very bias when it comes to Radiohead but I think this is a fair list of how I listen to Radiohead and if I was forced with a gun to my head how I would choose to rank my favourite Radiohead tunes.

1 - Fake Plastic Trees (The Bends)
2 - Idioteque (Kid A)
3 - Killer Cars (B-Side from The Bends)
4 - No Surprises (OK Computer)
5 - Thinking About You (Pablo Honey)
6 - Black Star (The Bends)
7 - Karma Police (OK Computer)
8 - There There (Hail to the Thief)
9 - Reckoner (In Rainbows)
10 - High and Dry (The Bends)
11 - Let Down (OK Computer)
12 - The Bends (The Bends)
13 - All I Need (In Rainbows)
14 - How Can You Be Sure? (B-Side from The Bends)
15 - True Love Waits (I Might Be Wrong: Live Recordings)

So 4 songs from The Bends and 2 B-sides from The Bends Period. You can see what album is my favourite. Honestly I could have put every song from The Bends on this list. It is just a fun list nothing serious just a list of how I hear Radiohead through my ears. I would love to hear other peoples lists of their favourite Radiohead tunes.


  1. So yeah I took a bunch of crap for having a Pablo Honey song on this list. Well maybe I should move it up to #4 then haha. I like the song and when I heard Pablo Honey for the first time I couldn't get enough of it. Still love the song and think it is great. I can see why others wouldn't have it in their top Radiohead Song lists but any true Radiohead fan knows that anyone of their songs could be a top song any given day.

  2. I think I would have to put Codex on this list at #3 now.

  3. Good list & agree on Codex.

    Surprised by the omission of Everything in its Right Place. Personally probably would have found room for either Motion Picture Soundtrack or Exit Music. Potentially including live version of Like Spinning Plates & I Want None of This from the Help album.

    Regardless, nice shot @ a tough question.

  4. Yeah it is really a tough task to place Radiohead songs in order. I could make 25 different lists and they would all be great.
