Like Spinning Plates Lyrics - Radiohead

Review The Song (39)



While you make pretty speeches,
I'm being cut to shreds...
You feed me to the lions,
a delicate balance...

And this just feels like spinning plates...
I'm living in cloud cuckoo land...
And this just feels like spinning plates...
Our bodies floating down the muddy river.

war? | Reviewer: niko laus | 12/6/11

Hei,

in a live version of this songs Tom talks about G.W. Bush and the war... He says that this song is kind of "dedicated" to the president... I think this makes sense, concerning the lyrics, and it is not an interpretation far, far away from anything... ^^



Little Known Fact | Reviewer: John | 6/13/11

Actually this song happens to be about Thom's special talent of spinning plates. Thom, before meeting the other band members and forming Radiohead in Oxfordshire England, went to a so called 'clown college' for two years in the Arctic where he studied acrobatics and contortionism.
Thom obviously didn't stay long and shortly thereafter made his way back to england, but not before having graduated with honors from the college (in two years!).
Thom, to this day, keeps in contact with his clown instructors, though many of them were put off by the band name 'radiohead' as this was the name of a beloved elephant that Thom had accidentally killed with a small nuclear device during his first year.
The more you know! :)

Hidden Stuff | Reviewer: Anonymous | 4/5/11

Tom Yorke hides so much stuff in Radioheads music. Infact, it is so much stuff I couldn't even get into it. This song though, for example, I believe is just another one of their songs, "I Will", backwards. I'm 95% sure on that. Something else hidden that I'm sure bog Radiohead fans already know about, is the hidden satanic looking booklet behind the black thing that holds the CD in the case on the Kid A album. I also hear that their new King of Limbs cd is ment to be listened to forwards and backwards, which I think makes sence when you here songs like "Feral". I even heard that Tom Yorke left a message in it backwards. If you want to find some of the hidden stuff on OK Computer check out this link:

Not sure how relevent that stuff is to the song, but it being "I Will" backwards reminded me of this stuff. It's deffinently worth checking out, it's interesting. And to think I said I wouldn't even start to get into it, LOL.



Damn Music Majors | Reviewer: meh | 3/25/11

Stop trying to interpret the hell out of everything that comes out of Thom's ass. It's music. It means something different to everyone. You sound like a bunch of college students that think they know everything because they took a theory of music class once.

geesh



old justified atheist | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/28/10

Jesus would have felt this song in his spinal column. People PLEASE just get a life! Thom Yorke is not the Messiah for weirdos who can't spell and feel his lyrics in strange places or project them onto imaginary friends...he's just a naughty boy.



Love this song | Reviewer: aspieaboi | 3/19/10

This track is amazing. I use it every nite to HYPNOTIZE my self into a state of HIGHER consciencesnous. Just put the track on repeat and breath deeply.

I have a strong feeling that Tom ment for it to be that way...



The greatest... | Reviewer: Nick hinds | 12/3/09

I beleive that this is the kind of music that jesus would listen to, it's probably the most creative peice i have ever heard, i love the way that Thom sings backwards and plays it fowards,

And the live version from "Amnesiac special edition [disc 2]" I mean, jesus Christ, isn;t it the most EPIC thing you've ever heard?!!



Neurotrasmitters | Reviewer: 17 year old male | 12/4/09

Um this song kind of like hit me like a ton off bricks. I thought i could litterally feel my spinal chord .... just like spinning plates in the song, almost transmitting signals, choppping me to pieces.

I would like to know just how high tom yorks concentrations of dopamine, seratonine, etc. and budding in his brain at a time. a new test can be done to determine these within a 100 (US) dollar range. Paranoid, neurotic, yet strangely god-like, its a good bet tom yorke may have strikingly active neurotransmitter capabilities undermining his concious at all times.



Outclasses everything | Reviewer: dogdrovenorth | 9/5/09

I dismissed this track when I heard Amnesiac, but have a huge appreciation for its creation, its live performances, its video and its antithesis, "I Will."

The video is eerie; what is leaving yellow trails around a frozen, stop-motion abandoned, mouldy, dank carpark? The lyrics feel slightly out of phase with our reality; dare we truly listen? Chillingly good: our generation will never feel this way about another band again.



I Will | Reviewer: cupcake | 7/25/09

Yup! Thom played the early early, unreleased version of I Will backwards and liked the melody much better than when it was normal.

There are some vids on youtube of Spinning Plates reversed, you could actually sing along the lyrics and melody of the new and released I Will and you can tell the similarity!

I guess it's by luck, but it's also brilliant. The idea of actually singing and performing it backwards to put it "forwards" gives the song an amazing feel.



amazing song | Reviewer: pichouette | 7/16/09

here's two interesting facts about this song:

1. the track that's looped continually to be the background music is actually the bass and guitar from "I Will" played backwards.

2. thom yorke wrote this song, and then learnt how to sing the entire thing backwards. they recorded that, and then played that recording backwards. so that's why sometimes, during the song, thom's pronunciation sounds a little strange, or the curious way in which he runs words together.

what an amazing, talented, unique band. as many people have said, they're the best band of our generation, without a doubt.



Going to sing it | Reviewer: Silvia | 5/15/09

I absolutely love Radiohead,I've listened to them live in Milan two years ago... I'm going to sing "like spinning plates" in a little concert with my friends. How can I explain? It's too much, too much what I feel with this song.



Tears | Reviewer: heylucyjude | 5/6/09

i heard this song live when they came to mexico on march 16th.... a lot of people made fun of me because it was "impossible" that they play it... and finally, after a lot of crying alone in my house (with like spinning plates)... they played it... finally i've heard it live...
...i was in such state of shock.... that i couldn't even speak, i couldn't even singalong ... i just couldn't stop crying!! this song means so much to me... this song is the icon of a really insane and hard stage in my life. I just adore it.



streng atittude | Reviewer: oscar | 12/24/08

When i listen to this song comes to my mind the times when i pressed the play button of an audio cassete player because the wind electronics loops by the end of the song makes some kind of static fect, i realise now that the lyrics are emotionaly strong taking part when i listen a little bit of a transitive existence, nostalgic song, well mixed.
