1A. Exit Music - Michael Stipe said the part where the drums and bass kick in is the most powerful and emotional moment in music... I tend to agree
1B. Paranoid Android - Does anything need to be said here?
1C. Idioteque - I love the sometimes overlooked, frantic lyrics of this song
1D. Life in a Glass House - Possibly the most out there thing they've done, and boy did it pay off
5. National Anthem - The memories of seeing this live almost pushed it to "1E," it was that good
6. There There - Pretty much the same explanation as National Anthem
7. How To Disappear Completely - So much emotion, so much angst, so beatutiful
8. Street Spirit - The classic, the first Radiohead song I heard not called "Creep," the song that got me into my now favorite band
9. Reckoner - When listening to this song, I can't help but to shake whatever is in my hand at the time like a shaker or moracca
10. Morning Bell (Kid A Version) - The ultimate grower, every time i listen i like it more and more and more

Honorable Mentions:
Pyramid Song, Like Spinning Plates, We Suck Young Blood, The Gloaming, Everything In It's Right Place, Climbing Up the Walls, Talk Show Host

The lists with little write ups describing WHY you chose the track add an extra dimension to these threads.

Berate me all you like but I have never heard:

Kid A
Hail To The Thief

and so will not post a list.

10. Optomistic
Found this song a year and a half after getting Kid A. Made me appreciate alot more.
9. Black Star
A 'Bends' epic stadium song with an amazing chorus
8. Airbag
A great riff, especially the way it melds the guitar with cello.
7. Paranoid Android
First radiohead song I ever heard. I remember it getting radio airplay next to Korn and Kid rock, REALLY wierd in retrospect. I fell in love with the "rain down" section in 4th grade.
6. The National Anthem
Its so modern its post-modern. One of the sickest bass riffs ever.
5. Everything In Its Right Place
The first time I did mushrooms I had a bad trip, and this song came on getting more and more chaotic, I thought my head was going to explode, and then-the climax-the noise all goes away, leaving yhorke's (sp?) voice and the lone syth melody. brilliant.
4. Bones
Best song on The Bends. Sounds like generic 90's alt rock, but the melody is SO GOOD
3. Polyethylene (Pts 1 & 2)
Underrated OK Computer B-Side. This and "Palo Alto" should have made the album.
2. Pyramid Song
Depressing songs like this usually put me asleep, but the fact that this one does the opposite is proof of its brilliance.
1. No Suprises
Awesome melody, great lyrics, the glockenspiel rules.
