Radiohead – How Can You Be Sure?

This 1995 Radiohead b-side to Fake Plastic Trees helped move me from merely ‘liking’ the band’s music to falling in love with it. I’m sure it’s on few ‘top song’ lists, but it’s near the top of mine.

The song is called How Can You Be Sure? and it’s a musical wonder.

  1. Thanks for reminding me that Radiohead wasn’t always doing the futuristic atonal thing (which I like, too)… I hadn’t heard the song before, and not many bands could take a simple chord progression like that and keep it interesting. Organ kind of reminds me of Mitchel Froom for some reason.
