Yorke has been iconic with his work, so what kind of song is his favorite to him? Let’s take a look at it!
Radiohead is one of those bands who have a complete understanding of music than any other competitors. With that saying, Thin Yorke has a better understanding of songwriting and when such an icon chooses his favorite, you know that’s a treasure for all.
Back in 2006 in an interview, Yorke revealed that there was a song that he treasured more than anyone else. Yorke revealed that his favorite song of all time is ‘Unravel’ by Björk. This song comes from the album Homogenic by an Icelandic singer.
When we take a deep look then we can witness how this song has influenced Yorke, it has rooted deep seeds within him and we can also see its character being implemented in his records like Kid A and on one of the films he worked in, Anima.
Yorke also showed interest to do the cover of the song back in 2006; “I’m trying to get Radiohead to do a cover because I think it’s one of the most beautiful songs I’ve ever heard,“ and after a year later, they released the cover during a webcast.
You might the quality of the video in poor condition but the texture of the sound you get is an art. To main the original texture of the sound, he comes up with an electric piano and his voice, this pair brings the original sensation of the track and makes the music alive again.
When he made the cover of the song, he showed how much love he had for his favorite track. In an interview, he described his favorite song as “born with a voice that is very sexual, but also very childlike. Very vicious and powerful, but there’s no sense that she’d do any harm.”
It didn’t take them much time to work together and soon after this event they collaborated and released ‘I’ve Seen It All’, Let’s take a look at what the Icelandic singer had to say after working with Yorke.
“He’s very shy and uncertain and doesn’t reveal too much of himself. That’s why it’s hard for me to explain what he’s like. I can’t do him justice. But he’s a very special person. When he enters a room, he affects the whole atmosphere in a very positive way.”
She respected him very much. The collab was awesome and everything makes sense why Yorke’s favorite song is ‘Unravel’.
