Yeah…This is a person who is able to make my insomnia getting worse and worse…. hahahaha,its like the best escape to hear his voice….all pain will be gettin worse (not disappear for sure)… but damn…u find comfort in that pain by listen to his song….
Mr. Yorke is my hero, While the other girls in my elementary school were listening to Boyzone, i was drunk for Radiohead….
Yorke was born in Wellingboroug. At birth, his left eye was fixed shut; his doctors believed that his eye was paralyzed and that the condition was permanent. Yorke’s parents took him to an eye specialist, who suggested a muscle graft.
Well i guess, he already get used to pain since he just born…. (LOL)
He was also the victim of kid’s bullying in school….
Somehow he lived with pain…..but that didn’t make him stop to start a music band… he started his first band when he was 11 years old….I guess the band is one of the best escape for him…..
He had said before that “I think the most important thing about music is the sense of escape”
Well, this is not a story about yorke actually….
Trough this notes I want to explore how incredible he is as a poet…not a musician but a poet….
For me the best thing about Radiohead and esp Mr. Yorke is the lyrics that emphasize all the various emotion that actually connected to the listener….
In my point of view, Here is the best lyrics and quotes by the Genius Mr. Yorke :
You are the sun and moon and stars, are you..And I could never run away from you…You try at working out chaotic things…And why should I believe myself, not you? You say the world is going to end so soon…And why should I believe myself? – You (Pablo Honey)
She looks like the real thing, She tastes like the real thing, My fake plastic love..But I can’t help the feeling…I could blow through the ceiling…If I just turn and run – Fake Plastic Tree (The Bends)
Wax me, mould me, Heat the pins and stab them in…You have turned me into this…Just wish that it was bullet proof, I was bullet proof – Bulletproof (The Bends)
I am the next act..Waiting in the wings..I am an animal, Trapped in your hot car…I am all the days…That you choose to ignore…You’re all I need…You’re all I need…I am in the middle of your picture..Lying in the reeds – All I Need (In Rainbows)
I’m not living..I’m just killing time…Your tiny hands, Your crazy kitten smile …Just don’t leave, don’t leave ..And true love waits…In haunted attics…And true love lives on lollipops and crisps – True Love waits (The Best of Radiohead)
This one’s optimistic, This one went to market..This one just came out of the swamp, This one dropped a payload..Fodder for the animals..Living on an animal farm,,If you try the best you can..If you try the best you can…The best you can is good enough – Optimistic (Kid A)
That’s some of the best lyrics for me…
For All Radiohead fan….Tell me your favorite lyrics !! 🙂
“Someone needs to tell the truth, but it shouldn’t be my job.” – Thom Yorke
