I thought I’d start a new “segment” just like my “Videos I Think Are Cool” and a pseudo “Jam Packed”, if you will. I have lots to write about later, like my amazing concert last night with Emiliana Torrini and Anya Marina, the kajillions of singles and albums I want to share…but you guys know me by now. I’m a tad…lazy. Horrible. I know. I thought I’d introduce Words because songs are more about beats, instruments, and melodies. If anything, the lyrics make or break the song…and sometimes they mean so much that you don’t even hear anything else.

Radiohead songs tend to be like this, but this one in particular, makes me go crazy, in a good way. It also happens to be one of my favorite Radiohead songs of all time. Tell me what you guys think.

“Radiohead – Myxomatosis”

The mongrel cat came home
holding half a head
proceeded to show it off
to all his new found friends
he said “I’ve been where I like”
“I’ve slept with who I liked”
“she ate me up for breakfast”
“she screwed me in a vice”

“but now
I don’t know why I
feel so tongue-tied”

I sat in the cupboard
and wrote it down in neat
they were cheering and waving
cheering and waving
twitching and a-salivating like with myxomatosis
but it got edited fucked up
strangled beaten up
used in a photo in Time magazine
buried in a burning black hole in Devon

I don’t know why I
feel so tongue-tied
don’t know why
I feel
so skinned alive.

like my thoughts are misguided and a little naive
I twitch and I salivate like with myxomatosis
you should put me in a home or you should put me down
I got myxomatosis
I got myxomatosis

yeah no one likes a smartarse but we all like stars
that wasn’t my intention (tension), I did it for a reason (treason)
it must have got mixed up
strangled beaten up
I got myxomatosis
I got myxomatosis

I don’t know why I
feel so tongue-tied
