High and Dry/Planet Telex single art

Planet Telex is the opening song on Radiohead's 2nd album The Bends. It was released as a double A-side single with High and Dry in February 1995 but ended up being far less popular. The song was recorded by Thom Yorke while drunk. He lied down on the floor and improvised the lyrics in one take. The song was originally titled Planet Xerox but was later changed to Planet Telex for copyright purposes. When asked about the song, Yorke stated "It's the product of a single sex education, romantic novels and art college." . The drums in the song were taken and cut up from other sessions on the album. This is one the most remixed Radiohead songs of all time.

ChartingEdit

Planet Telex charted at 17 on the UK billboards chart.

LyricsEdit

You can force it but it will not come You can taste it but it will not form You can crush it but it's always here You can crush it but it's always near Chasing you home saying

Everything is broken Everyone is broken

You can force it but it will stay stung You can crush it as dry as a bone You can walk it home straight from school You can kiss it, you can break all the rules All the rules, But still...

Everything is broken Everyone is broken

Everyone is, everyone is broken Everyone is, everything is broken

Why can't you forget? Why can't you forget? Why can't you forget?
