Gets me the goosebumps every single time... This is the track of my life for now and most probably will go 1º in my profile(along with one of Pet Sounds that i love and it's my second).
  • My life in a song, fantastic thanks to radiohead [2] always trying to bounce back
  • My pick for the highlight of OK Computer and one of the 3 or 4 best songs Radiohead has ever done. Brimming with emotion.
  • my life in a song, fantastic thanks to radiohead
  • Hysterical and Useless. Let down and hanging around. Crushed like a bug in the ground.... Ouch....
  • HOLY SHIT THIS SONG IS FUCKING AMAZING LIVE
  • The harmony on "reaction"
  • When Thom begins to sing "You know, you know where you are with..." is honestly one of the most beautiful things I've ever heard. [22]
