Things to Look For

Things to look for:  A return of my series on worship and my series on Paul and early church leadership.

Love for Radiohead:

Very few big bands do as much for their fans than Radiohead.  Recently they webcast their final concert from this tour live from Santa Barbara.  It was great, I saw about 40 minutes.  You can check some of the video of the concert at Pitchfork here.

In honor, I am listing my top ten favorite Radiohead songs in no particular order:

From “In Rainbows”

Bodysnatchers

House of Cards

15 Steps

From “Hail to the Thief”

There, There

From “Kid A”

Everything in its Right Place

In Limbo

Morning Bell

From “The Bends”

Bullet Proof…I Wish I Was

High and Dry

Just

Ranking the Radiohead albums (in reverse order):

Pablo Honey (the only one I don't own)

Hail to the Thief (only about three songs that I return to, but my second favorite song: "There, There)

Amnesiac

OK Computer (critics call this their best, I like it, but as you can see I like others better)

Kid A (actually the top three are all pretty close)

In Rainbows

The Bends (I keep returning to this cd over and over again).

I think OK computer gets over looked on your top ten because of its over all greatness. There just isn’t a weak point in it, like other Radiohead albums. I can’t tell you which song is my fav from OK computer i like them all. When I listen to it I never get the urge to skip a song It just plays the whole way through, unlike other Radiohead albums.

That is a good point. I just think there are some higher points on other albums, but you are right, there are low points that aren't on OK Computer.

I'm still waiting for you to send me that CD you burned for me.
