"Kid A (Radiohead cover)" as written by and Thomas Edward/selway Yorke....
I slip away
I slipped on a little white lie

We've got heads on sticks
You've got ventriloquists
We've got heads on sticks
You've got ventriloquists

Standing in the shadows at the end of my bed
Standing in the shadows at the end of my bed
Standing in the shadows at the end of my bed
Standing in the shadows at the end of my bed

The rats and children follow me out of town
The rats and children follow me out of their homes
Come on Kids

    General Commenti really can't imagine john mayer and his guitar covering this song, it's computer generated, so what the hell. John Mayer does not have computer-savvy music. I would really like to hear this cover.

    General Commentobviously you love him enough to know that this is a radiohead song. and as far as helping you understand it... drugs. that's pretty much how they do it.

    General CommentRadiohead is such an awesome band...I can really see the connection between the two...they both write such great songs filled with so much emotion. Just the cover songs that John Mayer always does lets you know his inspirations.

    General CommentThe cover is actually really good. I'm more a Radiohead fan than a John Mayer fan (Hey - I'm fans of both - they represent different things to me, though)... This is such a great version of Kid A...

    General CommentThis is really really good...sorta dry and cold feel to it. it's a weird choice for john mayer to cover, but he does it well and shows underneath the computers radiohead's newer stuff still has basic song structure. of course radioheads version's better. btw about the lyrics, it's not drugs. thom yorke has said with most of this album's songs he just took a number of snippets of lyrics and chucked em in a hat and drew them out in random order. that's why the lines don't fit each other

    General CommentI have some experience with the gutair, but playing this on a guatair after it was a played off some type of sythesizer by Radiohead is unreal to me. I am both a John Mayer and Radiohead fan, (Kid A being my Favorite of Radiohead) this blew me away. This song shows how talented John Mayer is. But the sad thing is everyone and thier brother has his CD now, and going to see Mayer will never be the same as it was for me a year ago. So now I'll be seeing Mayer from about 100 yards away on a huge TV instead of 10 feet away the first time I saw him. What a shame.
