Radiohead : "House of Cards" mp3

One of the main reason why I love Radiohead so much, is their ability to send shivers down your spine with one heartbreaking chord change. No matter what the album, there are always songs which do this. From "Knives Out" from Amnesiac to "Sail To The Moon" on Hail To The Thief or even "Black Star" from The Bends. They have a incredible knack of producing beautiful, melancholic songs.

Add "House of Cards" to this list. This song has been about for a few years, Thom Yorke even played an acoustic version at a trade rally early last year. Mojo Magazine describes it as:

"Exquisitely simple, marvelously melodic, 70's singer-songwriter throwback with mantric John Martyn quality emphasised by ghostly howls from Jonny's guitar".

As I've said before, the chord changes are what really strikes me about this song, but I also must mention that the vocal harmonies between Thom and Ed O'Brien work a treat as well.
