“High & Dry” by Radiohead is the song of the week because every time I listen to it I think it’s one of the most beautiful songs ever written, sang, played. The song is from the band’s second studio album, titled “The Bends”, released in 1995.
Radiohead shot two videos for “High & Dry”, one for the American market and this one, directed by David Mould, for the British and European market.
Virgin Radio Italy aired this song a couple of days ago and gosh… I love it so much! The instrumental part that starts at minute 2:50 is a masterpiece.
As often happens, musicians hate the songs that made them famous and that fans love so much. Thom Yorke, Radiohead’s singer and guitarist, stated he considers “High & Dry” a very bad song and he also hates “Creep”, maybe the band’s most famous song.
