    Stumbled across the setlist for The National's gig tonight in Cork, which I imagine will be very similar to what they play in Galway, and I am so very excited! I don't even know what song to link but man, I better link something so it may as well be my namesake. I will die when this is played.



    Also turns out the support, Phosphorescent, are really very good.



    Excited excited excited.

    Nope, have to go home for some family crap :P

    I am v upset. My only consolation is that I've seen them already, and that is very little consolation! Next time I guess :mad:

    I'm sure you will enjoy it enough for both of us :D

    I watched it from outside while my folks were inside at the gig :pac:

    #SadChild

    Sounded really cool from outside though, and I **** you not the birds were singing along with Fake Empire! Missed Squalor Victoria though which is my favourite of their songs live!

    I saw The National live earlier this week in Galway. It was fcuking amazing. I think it's the best gig I've ever been to. They were one of my favourite bands before, but my fan-girl dom has reached new levels now. There's something about being completely surrounded by people who adore the same music as you do, all singing along and having the time of their lives. That probably sounds really cheesy but the vibes were incredible. (Phosphorescent were pretty class too).

    It ended just like this (only better, cause I was there):

    It's nigh on impossible to not dance like an eejit when this is playing. bopping round my kitchen like nobodies watching.

    This is a beautiful track.



  • Registered Users Posts: 3,891 ✭✭✭iamanengine


    RADIOHEAD PHASE :D

    Beginning all over again, it has been FAR too long since I listened any of their albums.

    It is impossible to pick what songs to post, only when you have to choose like 2/3 songs do you realise how insanely good they are.







    Honorable mentions go to Paranoid Android, the entirety of In Rainbows and...well the entirety of The Bends (arguably their greatest album imo)

    Question to any Radiohead heads, opinion of Kid A? I just haven't 'got' it yet.

    You did good kid (with your choices). I actually can't say that I've fully 'gotten' Kid A either tbh, my opinion tends to be 'Idioteque aaaaaaaah' when it comes to mind but it's certainly something. But I probably need to listen to it a few more times from start to finish y'know.
    This is so hauntingly beautiful:


    Y'know what are under-appreciated (even by me). Those two albums in the middle of their discography, Amnesiac and Hail To The Thief, apart from the obvious Pyramid Song/There, There/2+2=5. One of my favourite things about them is that just by shuffling their tracks on spotify or iTunes or what have you that I can suddenly discover some new, great track that I've overlooked in the past.


    FRESH BINGE STARTING. Will they ever tour again?


  • Moderators, Music Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators Posts: 6,068 Mod ✭✭✭✭LoonyLovegood


    I'm blaming An File for this.



  • Moderators, Entertainment Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators Posts: 14,009 Mod ✭✭✭✭wnolan1992


    I never "got" Radiohead. I like a few of their songs, but I find their stuff, I dunno, just not enjoyable to listen to on the whole. I think it's mostly the singer's voice irritates me.

    That said, absolutely love these:

    If they do ever tour I am there immediately. Can you imagine Radiohead live?!! It would be insanely good. The likes of Paranoid Android would be crazy!! Even Creep would be great to see for the sake of it. Of their albums I have yet to listen to Amnesiac, Hail To The Thief and King of Limbs, much to my shame. It's cos I'm always like, hmm I should listen to some Radiohead and then I'm all OMFG In Rainbows nowwwwww, or something like that. OK Computer also a masterpiece.

    Gawd, we're totes musically in sync Slow_Show <3

    You should definitely check out their album The Bends. It's a lot more rockier and straightforward rather then their more...I suppose arty, out there stuff like Kid A. Then I find OK Comp is a nice mix between the two. Plus it predicts a world where we are ruled by machines, I mean come on, that's cool as **** :pac:

    The only Radiohead song I've ever listened to is Creep...memories.
