I don't know why I love this song so much. I first heard it in the original version by Radiohead about two years ago. It is from the group's very first album, Pablo Honey, which came out in the early 1990s, long before the band became probably the most accomplished art-rock band in the world.
The song drips with angst . . . but it's beautiful, and it's been covered high and low by the known and unknown. If time doesn't allow you the reward of listening to all of these versions, don't miss at least one of the choral versions of the song at the bottom. The first version below is a Radiohead live version. The Pretenders version supplies the lyrics.
