Song of the day: Radiohead- Karma Police

Radiohead_-_Karma_Police

A band which had a big influence on the music in the nineties and which should not be forgotten! Though their alternative rock is something you either like or dislike, I enjoy most of their work. This song was on their famous album OK Computer, and is made up of an inside-joke from the band (which has to do with the system of reincarnation in the Hindu-belief). It was a hit in the charts, reaching number 8 in the UK and number 14 in the US. It was officially released in 1997, but already in 1996 played live, when Radiohead toured (only for a short time) with Alanis Morissette. The rest is history, and it’s a mystical and somewhat mysterious sort of track, taking you in and making you realise you have listened to it after it has ended. Enjoy
