With Radiohead I immediately hook up my keyboard and I attempt to create something. But this is the scary part... they intimidate the shit outta me. I can listen to an array of artists and I don't get intimidated at all, I usually think "I can do that", but not with them.
Then Pyramid Song came along.
That song haunted me.
I would sit there for months and not come up with anything. I literally dreamt about that song, that's how much if f*cked me up. I simply couldn't come close to its 'mood'. What an amazing song by amazing artists.
I totally get what you mean. Haunting's a perfect word to describe half of their stuff. Would kill to be hearing Reckoner right now there and letting it consume me. AHHH
