This song was a dedication to the Bjork stalker who killed himself on videotape and left a similar note.

Go suck a bag of dicks Rob. If it's just your opinion keep it to yourself. I'll express the art I love the way I want to. Thank you.

They say my radiohead station makes them cry at my work....howe v e r I believe they enjoy it secretly.
Adversely, The previous comment from rob sums it up quite eloquently.. . and sheds (a rather polarized) light on a musical quandry/conu n d r u m . . . . W h o makes music for whom and why?

i hate reading others people feelings of what they went thru with this song.its like you all taint my memories and feelings and cant feel that place i was sent to.(as you can tell i didnt describe this place or feelings as something happy or sad hate ruin it for other people)so whenver i see people personal stuff in comments i just stop.music is so strong i know.but just feel that pain with you,should be just between you and you.not between us.my opinion of course.so dont get all sentimental too

well understood Amie. this song too brings vivid images of my brother's own...all aside though, the melody brings a strain of depth one can only enjoy while feeling empathetic.. .

"No matter what happens now
you shouldn't be afraid
Because I know today has been
the most perfect day I've ever seen."

There's never been a song that's hurt me more than this one, nor reminded me more of the person I lost to suicide.

It's not ok here without you, Ben, and I am afraid.

I've always loved this song, so i figured i'd make a Radiohead station. This was the first song that played. This song reminds me of lost comrades and makes me feel like talking to God

One of the most hauntingly beautifiul songs ever. The "From the Basement" live version is even better than the album version.

I can see the blood pooring out of my wrists into the water in the sink, slowly going down the drain. The light in the room would seem to dim and the silence would be deafening. Then there would be nothing but cool rest.
