♪ Nude (Radiohead, 2007) ♪

The melancholy of “Nude” will make you close your eyes and feel every note of Thom Yorke’s ghostly voice. It opens like a firecracker’s flicker of light, silent then boom goes your heart. But in all its sensuality and provocative arrangement, “Nude” all boils down to pessimism. The first two lines, Don’t get any big ideas / They’re not gonna happen, feel as if all your hopes are being stripped off, the song taking everything away, leaving nothing. Not everything goes as we want it; one way or another, we will always falter in every ride we take. And that hurts beyond compare.
