What song does Radiohead's Planet Telex sound like?

#1

It came on last night and I realised that it’s always reminded me of a song but I’ve never put my finger on what it is, probably some 80s middle of the road rock song.


#2

How soon is now?


#3

Interesting question, but do you have any ideas what Radiohead’s Planet Telex is reminding me of?

#6

the start is kind of like that really bad U2 one isn’t it?


#7

I hear some Live and Let Die in there


#8

think they ripped off that muse one


#9

Got a lot of love for Planet Telex.


#10

The start always makes me think of the start of Led Zeppelin’s Kashmir

So maybe it’s that


#11

Planet Teletext.

It predates DIS and the Internet.


#12

The little piano riff bit is identical, note for note, to ‘Regeneration’ by The Divine Comedy. Both songs produced by Nigel Goodrich too.


#13

isn’t that a guitar?


#14

It is. It’s also not note-for-note. But I see the point.

Very similar.


#15

The intro very much reminded me of the G’n’R’ version of live and let die
