    General CommentDear wannabepretty,
    by good you mean pop, at least I'm asuming
    I love radiohead now, but I hated Pablo Honey, so I find them to be "good" now, as much as you found them to be "good" before
    sorry

    As for the song, I think it's about how we treat the emotion of love, as a society and how it no longer has any connection with a human connection but rather as a means for sexual exploitation. Throughout the entire song, there's a sample of the word "J'aime" ( french for I love) playing in the background. The frequency of the sample quickens throughout the song untill it reaches a climax at the end. One might infer, that the song is a parody of sex, as near the end, the sample is barely recognizable, so as to say that what is left is no longer love, or rather never really was.

    General CommentThis song was on Radiohead TV (The Most Gigantic Lying Mouth of All Time). The piece they did was about a scientist engineering a race dog and putting microchips and whatnot in him. Does that mean anything to anyone?

    General CommentThat video was done by an artist not affiliated with the band, and was probably chosen more for the way it sounded then it's relevance to what was on screen.

    This song probably does not mean anything.

    General CommentThom sings "Never going to change". You can barely hear it as it's buried so deep in the mix.
