Day 5: All I Need

In Rainbows (2007)

This is one of the few songs that can approximate a “love song” for Radiohead. This was one of the songs that I hadn’t heard anything of on the new album, and I really came to like it, especially for the bass line. To be honest, I hadn’t really listened to the lyrics until writing this, but they are typical Radiohead fare. You’d think a refrain like “You are all I need” would be a happy song.

Notable lyric: I’m a cloud of moths /
who just wants to share your light /
I’m just an insect /
trying to get out of the night / I only stick with you /
because there are no others
