Live Music: Radiohead

First things first: I loved "In Rainbows" from open to close, and I love that it's marketing experiment paid off in spades. Arugably the best song on the album was "Nude", and it's been getting enough buzz in the last few weeks to attract attention from people who didn't even know much about Radiohead before. A lot of it might have to do with the use of the song in a fantastically slutty ad for the British show "Skins" (It's like a British "O.C.", but with awful awful writing). It will probably show up in more TV/Movie soundtracks later on since this song is just built for underscoring emotional scenes. Enclosed is a fantastic live performance of the song, and the "Skins" ad that has caught a lot of attention lately.
