  • Overall, I would recommend listening to Fitter Happier a couple of times before making a judgment about it, but I do think that this is one of those songs which will basically be hit or miss with a listener
  • Though it may have been interesting to have heard Yorke perform some actual vocal duties over this song, since the atmosphere the rest of the band is able to create is quite interesting and would probably match his vocal delivery well, I can respect that Radiohead wanted to go with a slightly more experimental track on an album that is otherwise filled with more traditional songs

      Fitter Happier is a song by Radiohead which appears on their album OK Computer. Opening up in a very unorthodox manner, the track features a robotic voice reading off some words which is actually very prominent throughout the majority of this track.

      After the robotic voice goes on for a few lines, a dark piano can be heard come in the background of the track which gives the song a very brooding and dark sound overall which is only


      reinforced by the strings which also soon come in.

      Thus far, a listener can tell that this is certainly going to be one of the more experimental tracks from Radiohead as they create such a dark atmosphere with the instrumentation yet has this constant robotic voice continuing to speak without missing a beat throughout the track.

      I will admit that when I first heard this song, I really didn’t enjoy what Radiohead chose to do with the robotic voice ...


      • being so prominent throughout this whole song, but I now think that the idea is fairly clever and offers a nice break to the usual stream of music that is present throughout OK Computer.

        Overall, I would recommend listening to Fitter Happier a couple of times before making a judgment about it, but I do think that this is one of those songs which will basically be hit or miss with a listener.

        Though the overall sound may not be too pleasing at first, I would urge a listener to give a few listens.
