You got some nerve, coming here
You got some nerve, coming here
You stole it all, give it back
You stole it all, give it back

Good morning, Mister Magpie
How are we today?
And now you stole it, all the magic
Took my memories

You know you should, but you don't
You know you should, but you don't

Good morning, Mister Magpie
How are we today?
And now you stole it, all the magic
Took my melody

All true.  Still a dreadful track.
He's still whining ...
well said Russ
Pointless crap from the opening note-like sound.
Radiohead is great if you are doing some H!
What a half hour on RP - Bill you are the man.....

I'm a Radiohead fan but let's face it, this is just not that good. Sounds like they phoned it in to meet a deadline.
(I like the cover art, though.)

I be the holy ghost of big stud Romeo Tuma...  I got burned at the stake here in paradise by an angry mob of unsophisticated tone-deaf peasants...  but I was saved because of my faith in sex, drugs, and rock 'n roll...

everybody in my mushrooming multitude of churches loves this song...

hope you are having a marvelous time right now, boober...

Lots of mystique. Emotional art. But--what a garbled hash! 
So I changed the channel.  Sorry, RH fans, his singing voice just rubs me the wrong way.
I don't completely grasp the praise and high rating numbers.  Is RH transmitting on some secret sonic channel?
Decent to good music - he can't sing = over rated.  

 
I couldn't agree more. I do not get the draw this band has, nor the critical acclaim it receives. Meh, who am I to judge. Not my taste, that's all.
I'm liking it. Haven't heard it, but then I've been cryogenically suspended since about 2011 (musically speaking).
IndistinguishabIe from Atoms for Peace. But not as good. Not one of RH's better offerings.

   less than 8 PSD hits, that is!

(still trying folks really I am. But this crap is just crap. Atonal, arhythmic, navel-gazing crap, topped with Thom Yorke's painful rectal itch of a voice.)

everybody in my hotel room loves this song...

I really must concur - except for some of their B-Sides...

Radiohead is amazing, Thom is a genius.

I like that Romeotuma's comments are always positive, but frankly I feel he does RP a dis-service by rating every single song a 10.  He has never rated anything other than a 10 and has 1500 songs rated. I don't mind his personalized green comments but wish he wouldn't use so much extra white space to push everyone else's comments down and off the page.

When did Radiohead become background music? It's not offensive, but it's not earth-shattering either.

This song puts a spring in my step this spring day...

Thom Yorke mixing some tunes on Boiler Room: https://boilerroom.tv/thom-yorke-30-min-mix/
I like the version "from the basement" much better. 


This song is soooo good for the ears...

I can just imagine Blue Man Group performing this on PVC pipe
I love this song. . .

this is a really terrific album! funky melodic accessible just right


We be dancing...  love it...



 
I love this album. Best absorbed start to finish with a good set of headphones.

Don't understand(or care in the least) 'bout the haters. I really like what Radiohead was,is and is evolving towards. Thom Yorke is kinda like the Maynard for the non-metal realm.

Painful even.

Hmm. Sounds like Perry Farrell on this one. I'm not sure if that's a brickbat or bouquet...
I really wish they could fit the new texture of their sound into good songwriting. Instead, the sonics are now king of their limbs.

I don't know.
I like them when they have more melody.
Like as in "Fake Plastic Trees", "Let Down" or "Thinking About You".

This is a little irritating.

... how i do like this song. thanks bill. i bought the album the other day, i find myself really drawn to this, lotus flower and codex. simply put, i love radio head, but when thom's vocal melody drives a song, i love them even more.
glad they are still at it.

 




It is actually delightful trying to decipher this...  good stuff...

I really like Lotus Flower and Codex as well. Separator is another good one. I can't figure out Feral, though.

There is always a lot going on with Radiohead, it hurts my head to listen to them too much. Very creative group though!

{#Lol} Yup! I'm not sure about this record. Somebody described it as a cross between Amnesiac and In Rainbows. I wish it had more of the latter, but it might grow on me.

A lot going on here.  Have to listen to it a few more times.  Looking foward to the rest of the new cd.


cool...

 

Interesting to see how this song has evolved.  Previously, it was under three minutes, and was much more straightforward, with guitars only.

Damn! I uploaded it... and missed it!!!!
What, no comments? On a brand new Radiohead song? This one seems to be going nowhere fast. Looking forward to hearing more (and better?) tracks from the new disc.
