Radiohead–Gagging Order

An acoustic collaboration between Thom Yorke and Johnny Greenwood, Gagging Order is as simple a Radiohead song as you will find.  It’s a sweetly morose track that seems to capture the isolating weight of the everyday.  “A couple more for breakfast/a little more for tea/just to take the edge off,” explains Yorke.  You can feel the distance in his voice as he urges, “Nothing left to see.”  Adding musical nakedness to the bands emotional honesty makes for a standout in their massive catalogue.
