Radiohead Binary Theory - OK Computer + In Rainbows

Puddlegum recently posted an interesting analysis of some deeper meanings/coincidences between Radiohead's new release In Rainbows, and their seminal 1997 OK computer. Interestingly, the number 10 proves uncannily significant.

For a near Wizard of Oz / Pink Floyd Dark Side of the Moon experience, set up a new new playlist with the following track order. Set it with a 10 second crossfade, and see how the two albums blend together VERY well . . . perhaps too well . . .

1. Airbag (OK Computer)
2. 15 Step (In Rainbows)
3. Paranoid Android (OK Computer)
4. Bodysnatchers (In Rainbows)
5. Subterranean Homesick Alien (OK Computer)
6. Nude (In Rainbows)
7. Exit Music (For A Film) (OK Computer)
8. Weird Fishes/Arpeggi (In Rainbows)
9. Let Down (OK Computer)
10. All I Need (In Rainbows)
11. Karma Police (OK Computer)
12. Fitter Happier (OK Computer)
13. Faust Arp (In Rainbows)
14. Electioneering (OK Computer)
15. Reckoner (In Rainbows)
16. Climbing Up The Walls (OK Computer)
17. House Of Cards (In Rainbows)
18. No Surprises (OK Computer)
19. Jigsaw Falling Into Place (In Rainbows)
20. Lucky (OK Computer)
21. Videotape (In Rainbows)
22. The Tourist (OK Computer)
