Take some guitars, heavy drums, "WEEEE ARRRRRE AAAAACIDENTS WAITIIIING TO HAPPENNNNNN!!!!" and a video with Series/{{Bagpuss}} and Thom Yorke grabbing golden clothes and experiencing its tree-morphing side effects and you've got yourself the [[AwesomeMusic Crowning Alternative Rock Anthem of Awesome]]. It is, somehow, both ominous and uplifting.

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QDhKICAm0OY "Big Boots"]]. Radiohead with an awesome, almost ''Film/JamesBond''-esque feel to it.
** After existing for twenty years as a bootleg recording ripped from ''Meeting People Is Easy,'' a proper studio recording (titled "Man O' War") will be released along with "I Promise" and "Lift" for the 20th anniversary edition of ''OK Computer''. Huzzah!

[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Z_NvVMUcG8 "Let Down"]], especially the "You know where you are" bit. It's sparkly, it's simultaneously ecstatic and heartbreaking, and it manages to make something truly beautiful out of depression and alienation without glamorizing either.



* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QDhKICAm0OY "Big Boots"]]. Radiohead with an awesome, almost ''Film/JamesBond''-esque feel to it. And it's [[KeepCirculatingTheTapes still unreleased]], [[{{Pun}} to boot!]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VhtaAnOaec8 "Polyethylene (Parts 1 and 2)"]], especially part 2.

2. Another example of MundaneMadeAwesome with operatic declarations of "plastic bag, middle class, polyethylene" and "there is no significant risk to your health," not to mention the music itself. The way the song spirals out at the end as if it were a spacecraft launched into the atmosphere? Lovely.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ySxUxvxrHeQ "I Am Citizen Insane"]]. Super-chill but slightly creepy.

* YMMV, but [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XG_iD8epJag "Electioneering"]] is a good song for those looking for a harder sound on the album.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HimvFbossU8 "Fitter Happier"]] ''could'' count as an example of CreepyAwesome, as well as summarizing what the entire album is all about.

* "True Love Waits" has been floating around as an unreleased song since ''The Bends'' and was most recently officially put on the tracklist. Needless to say, it's a ''perfect'', albeit [[TearJerker sorrowful]], ending to the album.

* "Ful Stop" has an incredible amount of buildup, and an equally incredible payoff once the second set of drums kicks in, not to mention some more great guitar riffing near the end.

* "Decks Dark" is a song that feels like it's been around forever, with timeless piano melodies and an infectious jazzy groove.
