I'll admit that I don't "put on" Radiohead songs very often anymore.  But 9-10 years ago, I went through a few years where that was just about all I listened to.   

Hard for me to listen to tolerate or stomach them lately, for some reason. 

Here's ten songs that I used to spin a lot, in no particular order (besides "Paranoid Android," which is one of my favorite songs by anyone of all time). 

Paranoid Android
Fake Plastic Trees
The Bends
Like Spinning Plates
2+2=5
Everything In Its Right Place
Pyramid Song
Creep
Idiotheque
Karma Police

4. 2+2=5
5. No Surprises
6. You and Whose Army
7. Pearly

It changes every so often, but a couple of those are still favorites and there's plenty more I could list.

I'm the only one who mentioned Let Down?

And yeah, I don't spin them very often these days--I thought A Moon Shaped Pool was brilliant, but also somber, and maybe a bit dark like a lot of their work.  But maybe that's helped their catalog not feel over-played, unlike others in my collection.

For me it's just easier to say every song on The Bends! To me The Bends is a work of flawless perfection, a work of genius. It's one of my all-time fave albums. My fave Radiohead album by far. I like about a half of Pablo Honey, half of OK Computer, most of their 8-track My Iron Lung EP (especially Punchdrunk Lovesick Singalong) and then just about 2 or 3 songs from each of their further albums. Pyramid Song is great, 2 + 2 = 5, Everything In It's Right Place, There There and Lotus Flower, I like all those. I haven't liked much of their recent stuff. In the 90's/early 00's they were my favourite band. I went to see them live in 1995 and 1997. Amazing gigs especially the first one. (btw sorry, I can't make paragraphs with this old phone I'm using) :-)
