The only Radiohead song I’m familiar with is “Creep”.
I have a pirated copy of the CD OK Computer sitting at home, but I’ve never listened to it.
In late 2001, I fell hard for a gal who initially was interested in me, but eventually decided that she wasn’t. For reasons lost in the passage of time, it hurt me more than any other rejection before or since. So much so that I actually sought out self-help guides, both in book form and online.
It was a dark time for me. Darkest I’ve ever felt. Really dark. Darkity dark dark.
One of the suggestions, strangely enough, was to listen to the CD OK Computer by Radiohead. I managed to burn a copy of it to a CD, but kept hesitating to listen to it. And eventually I was able to pull myself out of the despair that I was wallowing in.
As a result, I didn’t feel the need to do any more of the things that were suggested to me, including listening to that CD.
So I haven’t, mostly out of a sense of me having defeated those demons so many years ago.
I don’t know if any of this makes sense, but it felt right to post about it now, for some reason.
As for the CD, I know it’s at home, just not sure where exactly I left it. Probably on a shelf in my bedroom.
