Radiohead: Fake Plastic Trees
For those of you who have been paying attention to the new HBO show Westworld, you might have noticed some recognizable songs coming on the player piano in the background of scenes. Most notably for me was when this Radiohead quintessential jam served as the bed for a key interaction for a scene involving madame Thandie Newton. For weeks I haven’t been able to get the song out of my head and I didn’t realize that it was my subconscious from that episode until I re-watched it last evening. A beautiful song about authenticity in a show that depicts fake figure interactions with people, hmm it is almost as if there is a deeper meaning to having the song in the show.
