This is one of the most haunting melodies of te mid-nineties. Its beautiful blend of guitar and keyboard is evocative of such other tracks by Radiohead like How to Disapear and True Love Waits. I like it not olnly for its well structured chords and delicate vocals but also for its meaningful lyrics that most can relate to. It is a worthy ambassador for the album "The Bends". Their latest offering "Kid A" is in a similar style to this and is also worth checking out. All in all a wonderful song.
Andy.

5.0 out of 5 stars A truly fantastic release 15 May 2005
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Most singles are usually only good for the b-sides. In this case, whilst the a-side track is one of the best songs off The Bends, the b-sides are where this single shines. There are 3 tracks excluding the original studio track: live, acoustic recordings of Fake Plastic Trees, Street Spirit and Bulletproof I Wish I Was.
These 3 songs are widely taken as being 3 of the best tracks off The Bends, with Street Spirit being the track which gave Radiohead their real break in the UK. And these live acoustic versions are better, or at the very least on a par with their studio recordings. There are little niggles in Yorke's playing on the tracks, the kind of things that make live tracks truly unique and individual from what you hear on the album, but vocally and musically they're just as impressive as the studio versions. Particularly with Street Spirit, which excels as an acoustic track, adding an extra ingredient to the song which really works well.
This is certainly a single worth owning.

5.0 out of 5 stars beautiful a-side, similarly beautiful b-sides 20 Nov 2010
By Kid Z
Format:Audio CD
Something I would like to point out: no-one seems to have mentioned the CD1 B-sides India Rubber & How Can You Be Sure?. Those are really good songs. CD1 is my personal preference here as all the live acoustic songs on CD2 are on the bends.
