Codifying Radiohead

Kunal Anand, another brilliant Indian engineer with too much time on his hands, decided to diagram the song structure of his favorite songs. This is based on the lyrics and what word comes next. Here is Radiohead's Idioteque followed by Beatle's A Day In The Life.

The more complex, the less simplistic the lyrics. It doesn't mean that the bands today are lazier. They are just market-oriented and the people now need less words to karaoke.

I'd love to be at a karaoke bar that's got Radiohead's Idioteque in their song menu

there was one time in Laoag in Ilocos Norte when a young man sang "I'm a weeeeeeeeeeeeeeirduuuuuuuuuuuuu" so one of us burst out laughing because his rhythm was funereal. Then when he reached "I don't belong here" we all laughed. I pity that guy. He could have done better with Talking Heads. But then karaoke is really cruel.
