Radiohead

Postby Nicole Marie » Tue Jun 10, 2003 3:52 pm

Radiohead has always been a fav band of mine (and Dan Maselli). With the release of Chris O'Riley's "True Love Waits" Radiohead has now filtered into the classical music world. Beethoven Radio has been featuring the new CD from O'Riley and interest is growing.

I recieved an email from a few listeners interested in more from Radiohead. I was asked to post my fav lyrics from Radiohead (below are the lyrics to Fake Plastic Trees off The Bends CD). Do a search for Radiohead and tune into Beethoven Radio to hear and request the CD from O'Riley!

Fake Plastic Trees
lyrics by Thom Yorke

A green plastic watering can
For a fake chinese rubber plant
In the fake plastic earth

That she bought from a rubber man
In a town full of rubber plans
To get rid of itself

It wears her out, it wears her out
It wears her out, it wears her out

She lives with a broken man
A cracked polystyrene man
Who just crumbles and burns

He used to do surgery
On girls in the eighties
But gravity always wins

And it wears him out, it wears him out
It wears him out, it wears him out

She looks like the real thing
She tastes like the real thing
My fake plastic love

But I can't help the feeling
I could blow through the ceiling
If I just turn and run

And it wears me out, it wears me out
It wears me out, it wears me out

And if I could be who you wanted
If I could be who you wanted
All the time, all the time

nicole, in my opinion radiohead is probably the best band of the last 20 years or so. "ok computer" is, to me, right up there with "the wall."

glad to see there's another enlightened person around here ;)

I agree! I'm split between "OK Computer" and "The Bends". It's a tough one. Any other Radiohead fans out there?

OK how about this one - Besides Radiohead and Classical Music what other acts do you listen to?

I'm a Radiohead, Jeff Buckley, Ani DiFranco, Tori Amos, K.D. Lang fan. And you?

I got an email for a listener in GA who wanted the links to Radioheads site. For anyone else the official site is: (it requires flash plug ins)

http://www.radiohead.com/start.html

But here's a link for the Chris O'Riley CD that Beethoven is featuring:

Good grief, am I out of touch or what? And to think they called me "radiohead" in high school!

I dig all areas of music. But as far as punk bands (links below) I have to agree with NOFX, Bad Religion, Rancid/Op Ivy, Drop Kick Murphy's, Sex Pistols, the Plasmatics with Wendy O, and the list could go on and on. I also have to give it up for Fear Factory even though they don't fall in the punk genre.

Actually, I'd never heard of Radiohead until I read it here! What exactly does that make me???
No, don't answer that.

OT, I can't believe you like Pink Floyd. I would have never imagined. I love "The Wall" and practicly everything they have ever recorded.

Also, like The Who, The Doors, Santana, Joan Baez, Neil Diamond, Simon and Garfunkel, Richie Havens, Cosby, Stills, Nash & Young, The Mamas and the Papas..... :cool:
If not today, then tomorrow...maybe!

Gabbers, I like to think of my musical taste as broad and eclectic! ;) ).

BTW, my current quote is a giveaway to another group I like.

I didn't really care for The Wall (a lot of griping about reality) but DSOTM is a requirement! I have 3 copies of it, at least! The original LP, a half-speed mastered LP, and the 20th anniversary edition CD.

At Altec, we used "Breathe" to test woofers.

Iron Butterfly. Ah, yes. Inna-Gadda-da-Vida. It's somewhere in the garage.

I remember those guys. Bunch of Chula Vista boys. Locals. Wonder where they are now?

And I've got a good word for you, Gab. The word is "Premarin". Currently the only reason for the continued existence of my husband, kids, one of the cats, and three people at work. I had hiding places for the corpses all picked out, just waiting for decent opportunities...

However, it is my contention that we don't actually have brainfarts. All the stuff is still inside the head, it's just that the index file has gotten somewhat disordered. Randomized. But not actually lost; the thing I'm trying to remember eventually floats up to the top of the memory heap, and I can pluck it off.

The memory associations are still good, though. "Iron Butterfly" brings back the smell of the 60's. Cinnamon coffee, spilled beer, smell of tobacco and other smoking herbs in the air. And my knees didn't ever hurt.

(sigh)
