8. "House of Cards"

Another song first heard on Radiohead's 2006 theater tour, this In Rainbows gem is about a couple entering into a new relationship with the knowledge that it's a fragile situation for both of them. "Forget about your house of cards," Yorke sings. "And I’ll do mine." It ends on a rather bleak note: "Your ears should be burning/Denial, denial." It sounds like at least one house of cards is about to fall down. The song popped up a handful of times on the King of Limbs tour in 2012.
