This list needs way more Diary. “Song About An Angel” would probably top my list and “47” would be up there as well. Also, how can you miss “Guitar and Video Games”?!

I always thought that Skeletal Lamping was underrated so it’s nice to see it so high, though I’d personally give the #2 spot to Satanic Panic.

Lousy With Sylvianbriar or Gay Parade should definitely be in the top 5 over Paralytic Stalks.

Good list, hard to disagree with anything, especially the top 3. You’ve redeemed yourselves in my book after that Best National songs debacle.

Agree that the premise here is completely flawed. Bands are supposed to strongly prefer their recent/current work, and it’s only natural for them to have mixed feelings about their early material, but that doesn’t mean it should be disregarded when looking at their career. Thom Yorke probably prefers the stuff he’s doing now to The Bends / OKC, but that doesn’t mean a top Radiohead songs list should not include anything before In Rainbows.

How does Alligator only have one track on here? That entire album is basically perfect. Can’t believe not even “Abel” or “Secret Meeting” made it.

Nice list, I’d add Spectacular Views and Accidntel Deth as well.

Ceremony should have been on here, duh, but the most egregious absence is Your Silent Face. Still though, pretty good list.

Pretty good list. Nice to see Bad Girls at #1 and the Emily Kai Boch videos.

My vote’s for “The House That Heaven Built”. Agree that “Flutes” and “Millions” should be up there too.
