Song of the Day: Radiohead – “No Surprises”

Happy birthday wishes go out to Jonny Greenwood of Radiohead, who turns 45 years old today. Greenwood is most well-known as the band’s lead guitarist but here’s a song that features him on one of the several other instruments he plays. On this song, Greenwood is on the glockenspiel, of which he said in a 2014 interview with The Quietus, “I’m always happiest trying new instruments – and honestly enjoy playing, say, the glockenspiel with Radiohead as much as I do the guitar.” It certainly adds to this gorgeous song, which was one of the many highlights of the classic OK Computer. I still remember the time years back when I was listening to the album when trying to make my way home in a night time snowstorm, and when this song came on it matched the weather so well that it felt like I was in a real-life snow globe.
