My lovely and talented friend Sarah (see day 1 for link) started this challenge.
I am going to do this the way Sarah did – a song every day and with a few lines about why I like each artist and song, and why it is significant for me. I am as much about the music as the words by the way, so I have to like both if I include a song.
Please feel free to join in this challenge with your own lists!
‘Street Spirit (Fade Out)’ by Radiohead
I love this song, and the video. From their wonderful second album ‘The Bends’ . My possibly controversial opinion is that this was Radiohead at their peak. Their next album ‘OK Computer’ had some great songs and I admired the way they were stretching themselves artistically, but I did not understand the adulation the music press had for it. I did see them on that tour however, and they were truly amazing live. Then came ‘Kid A’ and I stopped listening to Radiohead entirely….
