Song of the Day: Radiohead – “Codex”

Happy birthday wishes go out to Thom Yorke of Radiohead, who turns 49 years old today. Radiohead has some terrific rockers, but my favorite songs by the band are the ones you can just kick back and vibe to, like this one off The King of Limbs. The lyrics are up for interpretation (Sleight of hand/Jump off the end/Into a clear lake/No one around/Just dragonflies/Fantasized/No one gets hurt/You’ve done nothing wrong/Slide your hand/Jump off the end/The water’s clear/And innocent/The water’s clear/And innocent), but they fit the song well. Radiohead is among this year’s nominees for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, and honestly they’re probably the most obvious shoo-in of the bunch. It would be a big surprise if their name wasn’t included in the winners come December.
