I Will

I Will

I will
lay me down
in a bunker

I won’t let this happen to my children
meet the real world coming out of your shell
With white elephants
sitting ducks
I will
rise up

Little babies’ eyes, eyes, eyes, eyes
Little babies’ eyes, eyes, eyes, eyes
Little babies’ eyes, eyes, eyes, eyes
Little babies’ eyes, eyes, eyes, eyes, eyes, eyes

Like Spinning Plates (a friendly reminder)

Like Spinning Plates

While you make pretty speeches,
I’m being cut to shreds.
You feed me to the lions,
a delicate balance

When this just feels like spinning plates.
I’m living in cloud cuckoo land.
And this just feels like spinning plates
Our bodies floating down the muddy river.

Where I End and You Begin – Radiohead live from the basement

there’s a gap in between
there’s a gap where we meet
where i end and you begin

and i’m sorry for us
the dinosaurs roam the earth
the sky turns green
where i end and you begin

i am up in the clouds
i am up in the clouds
and i can’t and i can’t come down

i can watch but not take part
where i end and where you start
where you, you left me alone
you left me alone.

X’ will mark the place
like parting the waves
like a house falling in the sea.

i will eat you all alive
i will eat you all alive
i will eat you all alive
i will eat you all alive

there’ll be no more lies
there’ll be no more lies
there’ll be no more lies
there’ll be no more lies

Radiohead Remix: Big Ideas (don’t get any) + Reckoner teaser


Details from the artist:


Radiohead held an online contest to remix “Nude” from their album – “In
Rainbows” This was quite a difficult task for everybody that entered, as Nude is
in 6/8 timing, and 63bpm. Most music that’s played in clubs is around 120bpm and
usually 4/4 timing. It’s pretty difficult to seamlessly mix a waltz beat into a
DJ set.

This resulted in lots of generic entries consisting of a typical
4/4 beat, but with arbitrary clips from “Nude” thrown in so that they qualified
for the contest.

Thom Yorke joked at the ridiculousness of it in an
interview for NPR radio, hinting that they set the competition to find out how
people would approach such a challenging task.

Based on the lyric (and alternate title) “Big Ideas: Don’t get any” I
grouped together a collection of old redundant hardware, and placed them in a
situation where they’re trying their best to do something that they’re not
exactly designed to do, and not quite getting there.

Spectrum – Guitars (rhythm & lead)

Radiohead Remix Reckoner


Radiohead / Remix / Reckoner


592 Remixes and counting

After the overwhelming response to the Nude Remix Project, Radiohead, iTunes and Garageband are teaming up again giving you the opportunity to remix “Reckoner”, another track from the band’s latest album “In Rainbows”.

To make remixing easy, the separate ‘stems’* from the song are available to purchase from iTunes _here_. The ‘stems’ available are bass, lead vocals, backing vocals, guitar, piano/strings and drums. All six stems are available to buy for the price of a single track. You can mix them in any way you like, either by adding your own beats and instrumentation, or just remixing the original parts.

If you purchase the ‘stems’ from iTunes during the two weeks they’re available, you’ll be sent an access code to a GarageBand file ready to open in GarageBand or Logic. However, you don’t need GarageBand to do a remix, all the stems are in iTunes Plus format and compatible with several music software platforms. The GarageBand file will be emailed before October 8th.

Finished mixes can be uploaded _here_ where the public will listen and vote for their favourite remix (submissions end October 23rd). You can also create a widget allowing votes from your own website, Facebook or MySpace page to be counted as ‘mix votes’ back on radioheadremix.com. Radiohead will listen to the best remixes.

*’stems’ are the component parts of the song.
