Thom Yorke 's Culture Show Interview

During an interview on BBC Two's The Culture Show Saturday night, Thom Yorke was asked what one song he'd like to be remembered by and quickly named Radiohead's "How to Disappear Completely" "because it's the most beautiful thing we ever did."

Although acknowledging that he seems like "a miserable bastard", Yorke said he believes "the whole point of music is it's life-affirming."

"Music is basically like mathematics, you know," Yorke told interviewer Lauren Laverne. "You're trying to form patterns, patterns that make you understand what is around you and patterns that help you get through the next day."

In the interview, Yorke also praised both official and unofficial forms of Internet media as far more important to Radiohead than any other form of coverage. He singled out his band's official website, unofficial Radiohead websites, and YouTube for praise.
