Radiohead – High And Dry


"High and Dry" is a song by the English alternative rock band Radiohead, released as the first single from their second studio album The Bends (1995). It was released as a double A-side with album opener "Planet Telex". "High and Dry" was released in the UK on 5 March 1995. Thom Yorke had performed an early version of the song with the band Headless Chickens while he was a student at University of Exeter in the late 1980s. Radiohead later recorded a studio version of "High and Dry" during the sessions which produced the song "Pop Is Dead" in 1993, but the band dismissed it as a "Rod Stewart song". During recording sessions for The Bends, the band's demorecording of the song was rediscovered and remastered for inclusion on the album, as it was felt that it worked well with the rest of the album's music. In a 2007 interview with Pitchfork Media, Yorke stated that he did not like the song, saying "It's not bad... it's very bad". He also stated that he had been pressured into including the song on The Bends.
