Radiohead? For me? How on earth did you know what to get me?

That's a fine premise for a playlist, which I may need to steal some day.

Verrrrrrry interesting choice, dear Mr. Wraight. Veeerrrrry interesting. The song is both upbeat and melancholy. I think it's the piano in this song - how many intsruments can be both at the same time?
