Radiohead & The Time I Cried for No Reason {Music Recommendations}

Looking at your blog from when you first started it (I don’t suggest you doing that on this blog, unless you want to severely *headdesk* and be embarrassed along with me) is weird.  That’s exactly what I’ve been doing since that last post, and I miss my “Sound Saturday” segment…  actually, I’ve re-discovered music I forgot I once liked.  And cringed at music I used to like.

Now, I would like to bring that back again, but this time not on a Saturday.  One, nobody logs in on Saturday, b) I’m trying to get off the internet on Saturdays, and Cuatro, I’m trying to get out of this “organized posting” shell I’m in and just blog, blog, blog…  every day, if I must!

Now, for this “music post”, I wanted to share a song that has sort of been haunting me these past few days:

I don’t know what it is about this song…  normally, I don’t listen to much Radiohead (this being compared to a hardcore fan…  I only have three songs of their on my iPod), but I heard it for the first time a few days ago.  It’s just all pretty much…  perfection.  The melody, the easy beat of the drum and the guitar, the angelic vocals…  It made me cry last night.  For no reason.  I just sat on my bed, listening to this song, and I started to cry.  Music is depressing.  Radiohead’s Nude is depressing.  But oh so beautiful.

Shortly after, I found out that this song was used for the Series 2 trailer for Skins, which I found to be a weird but beautiful coincidence, and I watched the trailer here.  I shamelessly admit I cried.  It was so beautiful.  (Everything is beautiful all of a sudden.)  It also reminded me of the days when I was emotionally dead when I finished watching Doctor Who’s Doomsday (dude, I actually couldn’t even come out of my room for almost three whole days).  Like I mentioned in the post before this one, I get really attached to fictional characters.  (If you watch Skins and/or Doctor Who, let’s obsess over it together!)

What did you think of this beautiful, beautiful song?
