* I paid £4. How about you? If you don't know what I'm talking about, and you are a Radiohead fan, please proceed immediately to here.
** Very pretty. Thanks to an old friend for the tip.
*** My current favorite from the great Graduation. Love that throwback synth/keyboard riff!
**** Yes I'm a little The National obsessed recently (going to Friday's show at the new Music Hall of Williamsburg, which I hear is an excellent venue), but it's NOTHING compared to Co's current fandom! (What can I say, she's got good taste...) Anyway, as I've said before in another forum, I always get goosebumps during the last part of this song... when it's just the piano and percussion and Matt Berninger sings:
"You know I dreamed about you
For 29 years before I saw you.
You know I dreamed about you:
I missed you for 29 years."
Very romantic, Mr. Berninger.
