Hey,

I know this is the wrong forum but I need a quick answer, and the radiohead thread doesn't get much action.

I'm doing an assignment for my music class, and I need 10 radiohead lyrics that show a sense of alienation or rejection etc.
So anyone got any ideas for songs?

Not sure, I will ask my girlfriend real quick since Radiohead is her favorite band.

EDIT: Subterranean Homesick Alien

"I wish that they'd swoop down
In the country lane late at night when I'm driving
Take me on board their beautiful ship
Show me the world as I'd love to see it"

my girlfriend said basically ALL Radiohead songs are like that though. so find some you like

Basically ANY Radiohead song. Why is this hard?



well, 've listened to many songs, and Ive realised that a fair few songs aren't that alienation related, some are actually political, plus i need to know opinions anyway

Creep is all about rejection

"You're so ****ing special
I wish I was special"

"I want you to notice
When I'm not around"

"But I'm a creep
I'm a weirdo
What the hell am I doing here?
I don't belong here"


Let Down on OK Computer

"Let down and hanging around
Crushed like a bug in the ground
Let down and hanging around"

High and Dry from the Bends

"Drying up in conversation
You will be the one who cannot talk
All your insides fall to pieces
You just sit there wishing you could still make love
They're the ones who'll hate you
When you think you've got the world all sussed out
They're the ones who'll spit at you
You will be the one screaming out"


2+2=5 could be good for alienation....in the orwellian sense it does anyway.


All I Need Rejection
"I am a moth who just wants to share your light
I’m just an insect trying to get out of the night
I only stick with you because there are no others

You are all I need
You are all I need
I am in the middle of your picture
Lying in the reeds"


Palo Alto

"In a city of the future
It is difficult to concentrate
Meet the boss, meet the wife
Everybody's happy
Everyone is made for life

In a city of the future
It is difficult to find a space
I'm too busy to see you
You're too busy to wait"


Bodysnatchers Alienation


"Has the light gone out for you?
Because the light's gone for me
It is the 21st century
It is the 21st century
It can follow you like a dog
It brought me to my knees
They got a skin and they put me in
They got a skin and they put me in
All the lines wrapped around my face
All the lines wrapped around my face
And for anyone else to see
And for anyone else to see

I'm a lie
"
