"Planet Telex": ("EVERYTHIIING IS... Brokennn..."), which is all the more impressive when you find out that the band recorded it after drinking copious amounts of wine, and Thom Yorke sang the vocals lying flat on his back, totally wasted.
"Everything in Its Right Place" for being beautiful and sort of terrifying. The awesomeness may be either increased or diminished for you once you figure out what he's saying...
Yesterday I woke up sucking on a lemon.
"How to Disappear Completely". All of it. Especially when the trumpets come in in their strange arpeggiated patterns, they don't fit in but they just... do. Thom even at one point called it his best song, for good reason.
"2 + 2 = 5", the moment when Thom loses his ever-loving shit about halfway through and starts screaming: "YOU HAVE NOT BEEN! PAYING ATTENTION! PAYING ATTENTION!" See also: "DON'T QUESTION MY AUTHORITY OR PUTMEINABOX!!"
The climax of "There There". Take some guitars, heavy drums, "WEEEE ARRRRRE AAAAACIDENTS WAITIIIING TO HAPPENNNNNN!!!!" and a video with Bagpuss and Thom Yorke grabbing golden clothes and experiencing its tree-morphing side effects and you've got yourself the Crowning Alternative Rock Anthem of Awesome. It is, somehow, both ominous and uplifting.
"Myxomatosis", with its strange time signature and awesome guitar part, not to mention the chilling part where everything drops out but the vocals and drums. "But now. I. Don't. Know. Why I. Feel. So. Tongue. Tied." And then it all comes back in again and goes on to become more and more awesome.
When they started a remix contest for "Nude," one of the contestants submitted a version done on an oscilloscope, an old printer and scanner, and an answering machine (which played the vocals), played through hard drives instead of speakers.
The original is just amazing on its own, too. There is a single chord change (that happens multiple times) at the 2:26 mark. It's sublime.
We can't talk about "Nude" without mentioning the incredible vocal performance Thom Yorke gives on that track. It's his greatest by a long shot. Absolutely ethereal and wondrous.
The bridge in "Reckoner", when all the percussion cuts out and all you're left with are the rising voices and strings.
On February 18th, 2011, a gleeful fandom began its The King of Limbs experience with "Bloom," quite possibly Radiohead's best opening track yet. The wailing, echo-y vocals are just eerie and ominous enough to set the tone of the album.
Meanwhile, a contender for best closing track is "Separator". The beat is strangely addictive... and after the heartbreaking double of "Codex" and "Give Up the Ghost," this song wraps up the album on a comforting, calming and hopeful note. "If you think this is over, then you're wrong..."
