We like to think that Thom Yorke is a Meff. He is famous in the music industry for his severe mood swings and many observers think he does his best work when he has gone off at the deep end. “Fake Plastic Trees” seems to be a perfect example. “That was one of the worst days for me,” Yorke later reminisced about the song writing process. “I spent the first five or six hours at the studio just throwing a wobbly. I shouted at everyone, and then John Leckie sent everybody else away. He sat me down, and I did a guide vocal on ‘Fake Plastic Trees.’” Guitarist Johnny Greenwood added, “Thom played it in three takes then burst into tears afterward.”
