Her green plastic watering can
For a fake Chinese rubber plant in 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
For girls in the eighties but gravity always wins

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

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

Jeff Tweedy does a nice cover of this.
My favourite Radiohead song.

Or "Pet Sounds", as it actually uses Bach!
working for Coilte. Dublin mountains. hottest summer. staying in a b and b and listened to this every night on Walkman. went to bed early to listen to. bliss. life changing album.
I  really like this song. No particular reason, I just like it.

Hey, Jon Voight claimed the other day that Trump is the greatest president since Thomas Jefferson. So...people are saying all sorts of things these days...

You lost me at Wagner.

Fantastic song from a great album, their peak, IMO. I love the bass at the very end, the subtle timing change on the outro chords. Brilliant!

I think it is always difficult to listen to a single Radiohead song on its own.

It is the same on my iPod playlists listening to various artists and genres and then up pops Radiohead.   Eeek - often downbeat, discordant, complicated time signatures etc but if you listen to a full album or selection of their songs your 'ears' start to get attuned to their style and you can appreciate their originality and musicianship.

Then you can switch to something else to pick your mood up again!
 

So very true .
It is almost a sin not to listen to OK COMPUTER in it's entirety .
It just ebbs and  flows magically !
If I could be who you wanted , on time ….on time ; >

This song is 2nd only to their video.  Artistic perfection, through and through! 
Absolutely brilliant! I love their earlier albums just as much as the later ones. 
And that was that, Radiohead x 2 brilliant albums, very little has even scratched the surface since, wish they'd called it a day after this album!
This really is a beautiful song. 7>9.
 Nick Drake's Things Behind The Sun followed seamlessly by Fake Plastic Trees was sublime today. The playlist has been superb.

Bill and Rebecca like Radiohead so you're going to hear them a lot, which is fine by me.  Bill and Rebecca also like Dengue Fever so we hear them a lot too.  I'll tolerate DF as long as I can hear Radiohead.
I love this song

'Fake Plastic Trees'. What is fake plastic, plastic that's not real? Genuine imitation plastic? Plastic trees that are fake, not even tree-like...maybe they're plastic grass in drag or something?

lol

 
Plastic fake trees would probably be more grammatically correct (understanding that you could have fake trees made of something else), but it lacks the pacing/phrasing required of the song. You could technically have fake plastic (superficially having certain aspects of plastic, but lacking enough of them to not be genuine), in which case you could make a tree of it.

Another way to look at it would be to say that some people aspire to be like artists that are pale comparisons to the real masters of the medium, the initial people unaware that there is a greater standard that they should shoot for. Or maybe that they should not be disheartened by the gulf between them and the masters, and that they should strive to be like the pretenders on their way to their full potential.

OK, that was deeper than I was going for
I only buy real plastic trees.

pretty cool list, shows great depth and much thought.

I once had a 'project' to guide tourists around using a PDA (like a smartphone but then without the phone) in a piece of forest in the Netherlands. Most forests in the Netherlands have the size of a dozen soccer fields surrounded by heavy traffic and residential area's. This wasn't an exception.

To make the forrest accessable they made a path paved with asphalt and surrounded it with a wooden fence. Every 20 meters you could read things about the increadible forest on plastic sign boards.

But you could hear the birds sing.

Until I noticed a crackle in the singing and saw the green waterproof speaker hidden behind a tree.
I had plans to plug the speaker to my MP3 player and play Fake Plastic Trees when the project would be officially demo'd but did not have the guts to do it.


10 if I've ever heard one.  Brilliant, period.

Sigh. This one gets me every time. 
Fast forward a couple of decades and an exponential amount of quality (IMHOO) from Yes to Radiohead.

The song that got me into Radiohead, though it was through a hearing several years after its original release.
Oh well, better late than never. 
This was an insanely fun concert I attended recently. Our local youth symphony collaborated with local musicians to cover OK Computer.

I rated it a 4. I must have been in a cynical mood. Gosh, he's always such a morose sort but the song is wistfully upbeat, even if it's about fake stuff. I've promoted this TY and His Funky Bunch tunesta to a 6. 
Perfection. Reminds me of seeing them in Olumpia theatre, Dublin.

Some thoughts:  

At the very least, a successful band must speak clearly to its own generation, yes?  Doing so offers relevance to the needy voice of the group's lyricist and a megaphone for those listeners who hunger for someone to speak for them.  As Cobain did for so many, Yorke does for many others. Both are (were) pretty emotional guys, same age, different backgrounds, with unique ways of putting things and presenting ideas that resonate with their generation.  While a direct comparison between them is perhaps best left unexplored, I think it's no stretch to say that those who, for example, think that Dylan spoke for their generation, should be able to relate.  The Bends?  Nevermind?  Certainly no less capable of significantly impacting the way in which a generation of good people views their place in the universe than Bob's Highway 61 or 4th Street.  Is it all good, musically-speaking?  Well, no.  But when any piece of artwork can inspire love for itself in spite of its shortcomings, the effort deserves respect, even from those who just don't get it, myself included.

A couple of their songs remind me of Bread, maybe it's the tempo and/or the production - the voice too sometimes.

Thanks for the list RDO. I love enough songs on the list to feel compelled to check out the songs I don't know. After copying and saving your list, two things struck me. First, despite ready many comments from the usual suspects and feeling like I have a handle on several of the personalities behind the names, I inevitably read a comment that reminds me that I really don't know commenters as well as I thought.  Pretty obvious, but I'm always amazed at how profound the obvious can be. Which brings me to my second (obvious) point. I was thinking that, geez, I hope Bill reads the list (I suspect he has or will) and gives these songs consideration if they aren't already in the queue (although they probably are). But then I thought about Bill's list of favorite songs, which is essentially the playlist for RP over the past decade edited out for duplicates. That's when Bill's vast knowledge of music really hit me as I thought about the 10s of thousands of songs that he knows so well.  So little time, so much music to explore.

I am not a fan of Radiohead. Not at all. 

Yet strangely, I find myself liking this. I never thought I would give a Radiohead song a 7. 
Any love (or hate) out there for Alanis Morisette's live version??

My vote for RadioHead's best song! Yorke's voice isn't a complete disaster, and the composition and arrangement actually add up to a pop song.

Is this one so-so song the origin of all RH's acclaim from critics and Gen-Y sadcore fanboys?

 
So a song can't be good unless it's a traditionally-arranged pop song?  Your music collection must be quite boring.
Really really like this. Really.
