Radiohead – Lift (1997)

YouTubeAmazoniTunesDiscogs

Good morning. We kick off today with Radiohead’s lost classic ‘Lift’. It was recorded during the sessions for OK Computer, but never made the grade. That’s not quire right of course, something that listeners can quickly appreciate. In fact, ‘Lift’ had been expected to be the first single from the album due to the band’s predilection for featuring it in their sets throughout 1996. Anthemic and melodic, the song perhaps fits better with the Radiohead in 1995, rather than 1997. It would have been huge, but these guys were perfectionists. Have a great week.
