Day 7: True Love Waits

I Might Be Wrong: Live Recordings (2001)

This was the only new song on the live recordings album that Radiohead released. It was one, however, that had been very popular in concerts. Reportedly, the song is inspired by a news story in which a boy was accidentally (perhaps) locked in an attic by his mom and subsisted on lollypops and crisps. This is one of those good guitar songs that is just as poignant and rich when it’s a solo guitar as it is with a whole band.

Notable lyric: and true love waits /
in haunted attics /
and true love lives /
on lollypops and crisps
