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.
