Finding things to talk about
Be constructive

There are weapons we can use
Be constructive
With your blues

Even when they tore the wall down
Even when they tore the wall down

Why don't you quiet down? (x4)
Quiet down

It's all over the promise land
All over the promise..
Now let me out of here
All over

We are the dollars and cents
And the pounds and pence
And the mark and the yen
And yeah we're gonna crack your little souls
We're gonna crack your little souls

We are the dollars and cents
And the pounds and pence
And the mark and the yen
And yeah we're gonna crack your little souls
We're gonna crack your little souls

We are the dollars and cents

Une ligne de basse fulgurante avec une nappe de guitare en boucle, Dollars and cents, issu d’un Jam à Copenhague, renoue avec la tradition militante de Radiohead et se place comme l’héritière d’Electioneering. Jouée depuis les premiers concerts en juin 2000, elle est très puissante en live et plus contenue en studio. On peut entendre Phil rouler du tambour. Ce morceau, assez répétitif mais efficace se trouve également sur le live EP de I Might be wrong.

'dollars and cents' is a track that originated out of a 'jam' from copenhagen - it's good but because there was no arrangement, no musical decisions could be made on it.........well now it has an arrangement.....thom did some backing vocals and a bit of guitar, jonny put his string arrangement on, i did a little moog and the song is really going somewhere.

what an amazing day. fantastic string arrangements by jonny and what players. many many thanks are due to john lubbock(who conducted and organised) and the string players from the orchestra of st. john's, smith square. the whole session was the complete antithesis to the OK Computer experience; firstly rather than de-camping to some london studio we used an old abbey near us with the most fantastic acoustics to record in. i think nigel was totally blown away by the whole sound of it. but most importantly john and the players were so enthusiastic about it all.....jonny has certain things that he wants/wanted to try out that aren't your usual string arrangaments. and rather than dismiss his ideas ( which is what happened on the OK Computer session) they were open-minded enough to try them. john lubbock even handed over the conducting reins right at the end for jonny to try out an idea of his. there is no way that he would have been allowed to have done that at the abbey road session. brilliant players and people.
