FRESH: Radiohead - Nude

The second single from Radiohead's "In Rainbows" is more of an old classic. "Nude" is a song that dates back to the days of "Ok Computer." in the mid-'90s, but held in limbo while the band tried to figure out what to do with it in the studio. The answer, surprisingly, is to do little, beautifully. Nude has a spare, refined quality that is consistent with the general tone of the album. This song really stands out on a first listen. By the way this song debuted at #37 in this week Billboard Hot 100.

easily one of my favorite songs from In Rainbows because (you were right) it stood out. my friends entered their animated video for this song in Aniboom's Radiohead video competition. Check it out here:

nice eh? its still a rough draft of what's to come, just the storyboard. but the finished video will be full animation. Please vote for it. They're Radiohead fanatics... my friends. hehe. thanks!
