Thom Yorke Misses Writing Songs With Hooks: 'Maybe I Should Come Up With a Chorus'
Radiohead frotnman Thom Yorke recently said that he is thinking about going back to writing songs with choruses again, admitting that he actually misses making catchy tunes. "I keep thinking maybe I should come up with a chorus," Yorke said during a wtf Podcast chat. "I do actually like songs with choruses." The singer reminisced the old days a bit more as he spoke about his writing approach and the band's most popular efforts. "If you're writing something and you mean it, you can't repeat yourself," he stressed. "To me, I go through my life, come what may, doing stuff because I can't not. It's like, my instinct is to go here, and that's it. I can't do anything about it, that's just how it is. You can't write stuff to please people. You have to write it because that's what you've got." Yorke then discussed the group's decision to "ditch the guitars" after their 1997 record "OK Computer," also admitting that the fact that "Creep" became a global hit baffled the band. "It was one of those things where it was like, 'Do we really just carry on like this?'" the singer said, "'Kid A' in the end, to me you can see why they're not so far apart, 'OK Computer' and 'Kid A'. It's just that we were choosing to use certain instruments that lots of people associated with things that were 'unworthy' or whatever." Yorke is currently busy wrapping up this year's European set of Atoms for Peace concert dates with three consecutive sold out performances in London, UK. The band will then embark on a month-long US concert trek in late September.
