1. Radiohead – Fake Plastic Trees

Being the first song I’m posting on here, there was a lot of pressure to choose a good one. Too much. So instead choosing one deliberately, I picked the first song I happened to have ‘starred’ on Spotify.

Fake Plastic Trees by Radiohead was a step away from the grunge that their hit Creep elicited, at least commercially. The first time I listened to this, I was admittedly indifferent about it. But it grew on me. And then it ate away at me. The bridge hits the hardest, emanating the frustration and the underlying meaning of the song through the lyrics that Thom Yorke recorded directly from “whatever was going on in [his] head”. The keyboard and string effects are pretty cool, too.
