I haven't been playing in this game but I just gotta say "Daredevil" has quite possibly my favorite bridge in any song.

All great songs. Like I said in another thread, Let Down got a big boost after seeing Radiohead live last week.

Now that I've put that rushed all-time songs list behind me, I'll jump back in here (especially since this is a week that my favorite song in each pairing actually matches the album I prefer).
