The download of Radioheadâs latest album, The King Of Limbs, was made available today, and with it, a clip from the first single, âLotus Flowerâ. Notice how it features Thom Yorke â looking like a strange cross between Bono and The Edge of U2, as filmed by Anton Corbijn â dancing on his own.
Thatâs made it really easy for the rise of a new meme: making Thom Yorke dance to other songs.
Hereâs Clem Bastowâs masterpiece: âThom Yorke Dances Alone To Ponyâ.
Another goody is âBenny Hill of Limbsâ, also known, after the musicâs proper name of âYakkety Saxâ, as âYorkety Saxâ.
Iâm also quite fond of âThom Yorke gets down to Single Ladies (Lotus Flower Dub):
But what about this gem: Thom dancing to the Trashmenâs âSurfinâ Birdâ, as âLotus Flower (Dance)â?
Itâs inspired, no doubt, from this earlier version:
Thom dancing to Shakiraâs âLocaâ isnât quite as good:
And now a Venga Boys remix!
But Iâm sure thereâll be more. Let me know so I can add them.
