MP3 of the Day: "Reckenor" covers/remixes

Posted By on Tue, Oct 14, 2008 at 11:22 AM

(Gnarls Barkley covering "Reckenor" live)

Of all the songs on Radiohead's In Rainbows, I think "Reckenor" is my favorite. The wailing, lonesome vocals; the long, slow build; the pickup towards the end melted by a mournful croon...it's a gorgeous track. And it's one of the songs that's picked up momentum over the year -- Gnarls Barkley added a cover to their set list, performing "Reckenor" here in Sept. during the Slow Food Rocks fest (which is not the video above).

And multiple remixers have been trying their hand at reinterpreting the song through Radiohead's Web site. Today we highlight one of the better versions by Nosaj Thing. -- Jennifer Maerz
