* "High and Dry" may sound more nostalgic and longing than outright sad, but it certainly qualifies. "Kill yourself for recognition, kill yourself to never ever stop..."

* "Glass Eyes" could most possibly take the place as Radiohead's most beautiful composition ever, featuring Jonny Greenwood's orchestration skills at their finest, accompanied by gorgeous, harp-like piano playing. Jesus.

** In the context of the album (see above under "Daydreaming"), the line "Just don't leave" is utterly wrenching. The song has existed for over twenty years, but it puts a new spin on the performance featured here.
