Dead Air Spotify - Radiohead Office Charts throughout 2010

Welcome to Radio Radiohead

Tell me what you're listening to, and I will know who you are. Since november 2008, Radiohead are periodically publishing on their website Dead Air Space charts of songs they "might be listening to in the office". 2010 charts are mostly signed by singer Thom Yorke. I don't know if that means these are the songs he is personally listening to, or he has been appointed chart-publisher for all the band, or he gained a dictatorial control of the studio hi-fis. The important is that these are truly fascinating playlists. So far from my normal tastes. With jazz, electronica, hip hop, 8-bit, Scott Walker, piano beauties and even a mass in B minor. New horizons, new landscapes, new roads where slowly walk, far from the boring chaos of the commercial highways (...while waiting for the new Radiohead album: is it maybe that this music influenced it?...).

For each "office chart", I made its own Spotify playlist. If you prefer, at the bottom of this post, you can find a mammoth playlist, comprehensive of all the songs. Enjoy!
