Stop Whispering (5:25)

Cover of Pablo Honey

From Pablo Honey and 32 other releases

“Stop Whispering” is a song by Radiohead, released as the band’s fourth single. It is the fourth track off their first album, Pablo Honey. The song was written as a tribute to the Pixies, a band that had an important influence over Radiohead at the time. The version released in the United States was remixed by Chris Sheldon and featured strings and a slower tempo.

“Stop Whispering” is also one of Radiohead’s oldest songs; it was created when the band was still known as “On A Friday”, originally being on Dungeon Demo. Radiohead have not performed the song live since the mid-’90s.

The promotional video features Thom Yorke in a very out-of-character style, with blond, shoulder-length hair and wearing a white suit. Since then he has favoured darker clothing and short hair. The video was directed by Jeffery Plansker who would later direct videos for Soundgarden and 10,000 Maniacs. He was also scheduled to direct the unmade video for Nirvana’s “Pennyroyal Tea.”

And the wise man said "I don't want to hear your voice"
And the thin man said "I don't want to hear your voice"
And they're cursing me
And they won't let me be
