Radiohead // Nude

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?


  1. I didn't know that was the song in the Skins theme! I love songs that are so beautiful and awesome you just want to cry and laugh and listen to it forever.

  2. Oh my God, 3:10 just gave me tingles. That is such an intense song...possibly not one I'd listen to regularly but sooo intense. Series 2 = awesome.

  3. this song reminds me of my husband. radio head is his fav band ever.


Thank you, pal.
