Good luck! I listened to it once last night, and while I enjoyed most of it, the end is pretty rough.

Ok, I've got it loaded up and ready to go. I'm just going to warn you: Clemson lost last night so I'm in a horrible mood already before I've even listened to this song once. That's not a good sign.

I'm loaded up and ready to go, too. I'm warming up by listening to "Fake Plastic Trees". I have no idea why I'd choose to prepare for listen to the same Radiohead song over and over by listening to a different Radiohead song, but there you go.

Sorry about the Tiger Paws.

Time: 9:15
Number of plays: 0.5

Well, here we go. The main difference is that I actually like the song I'm playing on an endless loop for the next two hours. I wonder if I'll still be singing along and swaying at the end, or if I'll just be rocking back and forth in a catatonic state.

Prepare for feedback...

Ok, here I go. It's my first listen to this song in many many years. I will say that the beginning is sort of relaxing. It's almost like Thom really wants to soothe you to sleep and then once you're there Bam! He's going to wake you up so violently that you want to hurt someone.

Here it comes.........The music is starting to speed up now. There's a tiny almost undectectablt bit of distortion in the background. That's your first sign that Thom is here to fuck with you. No more Mr. Nice Thom, here comes evil weird eye Thom.

God, make that crap stop. The ending really grates on me.

Time: 9:33
Number of Plays: 4.1

The last couple of plays have actually flown by. The song is almost quickly receding into the background. Perhaps I've found something that my ADD is actually good for?

Even the ending doesn't really bother me. Although I have stopped singing along. Of course, as soon as I say that, I starting singing again.

I must say, though, the first time I finished, and "Karma Police" started right back up again, that kinda threw me for a loop. Although it was nice not to have to hear iTunes go right into "Fitter Happier" for once. Oh, how I loathe that song. Every time someone plays "Fitter Happier", Stephen Hawking kills a kitten.

My friend just called and I had to explain the torturethon to her.

"It sounds like you are in a bar."
"Nope. I'm just listening to this song on a continuos loop for 2 hours."
"Why?"
"Just because."
"What song is it?"
"Karma Police by Radiohead"
"Who?"
"Radiohead. They had some popular songs in the 90's"
"Never heard of them."

Radiohead rules.
Your friend drools.

You know I went and saw Radiohead in summer 2003.  I was extremely surprised at how well their music translated into a live show. I was expecting it to be a terrible transition, but instead the speakers were thumping and the crowd was revelling in the outstanding experience. I even got to see them play "Creep," which has that awesome cher-chunk cher-chunk which might be the greatest non-notes ever written into a rock song. I totally expected a very visible and big motion going into those, but instead it was a quick flick of the wrist and then a long motion downward.  I was in awe.

This has nothing to do with your song. But I thought I'd share.

Time: 9:52
Number of plays: 8.4

I tried synching up the YouTube video to the song playing on my iTunes. I was off by about a second. It was driving me crazy seeing Thom Yorke's mouth not lining up with the words coming out of the iTunes, so I guess I'll try again.

On the plus side, this cup of tea is delicious.

Thanks, girl! The only Radiohead I currently have on my iTunes is "There, There," so I'm listening to it in hopes that its positive vibes of brilliance will counteract the mental torture you're experiencing from "The Feedback Song."

Stay strong!

The ending sort of sounds like atari sound effects. Maybe Asteroids or something. It sounds like 80's video games.

Here's my suggestions for a better version of this song:

I can see Michael Stipe singing this. I bet it would be great.
Cut the shit at the end.
Add a mandolin or something a little folksy to it.
