Radiohead never fails to impress. And this track is no different. Included below is one of their finest live reworkings of a song. The song, Fog, first appeared on the album Knives Out after being launched as “Alligators in New York Sewers” in Caesaria on July 9th, 2000.

From that first play, where Thom Yorke introduced it as “kind of a silly song,” it has matured and grown into something at once melancholic and beautiful. The version posted here comes from a single entitled Go To Sleep #1 and is a nice stripped down acoustic version with just Thom and Jonny.

mp3 : Radiohead – Fog (Again) (Live)

lyrics :

there’s a little child
runnin’ round this house
and he never leaves
he will never leave
and the fog comes up
from the sewers
and glows in the dark

baby alligators in the sewers
grow up fast
grow up fast
anything you want it can be done now
how did you go bad?
did you go bad?
did you go bad?
some things will never wash away
did you go bad?
did you go bad?

It Has Begun

And it has begun. I’ve once again been sucked into another online form of communication. Here I sit, a proud user of facebook, myspace, and xanga. And what am I doing? I’m plunging further into the void that is the interenets. I’m looking for another attention fix, another slice of alleged popularity.

But this will be different. This will be music. Yes, these posts will invariably contain a lot of me, how could they not when I’m writing them. But this blog will focus around music. Music will be my muse. It shall serve as our guide and together we will seek greater meaning in this life, kittens who never grow into cats, and rainbows that need not the rain.
