Song of the Day: After The Gold Rush by Thom Yorke

So this Friday morning here’s the very last After something titled track because I really can’t do all of them but I have too post this one! Like most or maybe some of better known songs I’ve picked a cover here! So have you heard this one by Mr. Radiohead live at one of Neil Young’s Bridge shows? I’ve found a couple on youtube of the same night’s shows recordings, above you can see but the sound on the one below is much better:

So some reader/listeners might not be as into covers as me, here’s the original of 1970 too:

Well, I dreamed I saw the knights in armor coming,
Saying something about a queen.
There were peasants singing and drummers drumming,
And the archer split the tree.

There was a fanfare blowing to the sun
That was floating on the breeze.

Look at Mother Nature on the run
In the nineteen seventies.
Look at Mother Nature on the run
In the nineteen seventies.

I was lying in a burned out basement
With the full moon in my eyes.
I was hoping for replacement
When the sun burst through the sky.

There was a band playing in my head,
And I felt like getting high.

I was thinking about what a friend had said.
I was hoping it was a lie.
Thinking about what a friend had said.
I was hoping it was a lie.

Well, I dreamed I saw the silver space ships flying
In the yellow haze of the sun.
There were children crying and colors flying
All around the chosen ones.

All in a dream, all in a dream
The loading had begun.

Flying Mother Nature’s silver seed to a new home in the sun.
Flying Mother Nature’s silver seed to a new home.
