Wait, Radiohead had a video for this?

 

Yesterday, I was reading an article from Spin drawing a parallel between TV on the Radio’s “Return to Cookie Mountain”, and Radiohead’s “OK Computer”.   It’s a pretty interesting and deep read.  Below is the link to the article if you haven’t seen it.

Admittedly, I get distracted by anything so midway through I started to fade, when my dog ears went up.   Spin provided a link to Radiohead’s music video “Paranoid Android”.   I’ve played this song hundreds of times and didn’t know there was a video.  It’s not too surprising for me since I haven’t done dedicated music video watching in a long, loooooong, time.   But it was odd, given that Radiohead released their epic “Burn the Witch” video in the last couple of months and this pops up on the redar.

Before clicking on it, I had apprehension. I love this song so much. This song could’ve been a movie.   But to see the video now  was almost like seeing the movie after reading the book.   I was worried the video wouldn’t live up to the song and I’d be forever tainted with the images.

Well, no worries here!   This is colossal–I need to watch it like 10 more times to get everything, but it is well worth it.

If you haven’t checked it out yet, the link is on top of this page, enjoy!
