Jesse Marco's 30 Favorite Albums

Radiohead, OK Computer (1997)

Label: Parlophone, Capitol

Jesse Marco: "What can I say about that record other than it's a classic? I have a love/hate relationship with Radiohead, and Thom Yorke. I think OK Computer was extremely listenable. You could listen to that whole record all the way through and sort of get the gist of what they were trying to get across.

"I think that was one of the records that I came on to straight, because it's another one where I heard it when I was young, and was like, 'This is boring.' As you're older, you come back to those things. Your taste grows. I think that was just a case of that. I'll listen to that whole record on the airplane.

"I bought the CD for OK Computer and listened to it in my walkman. I think the thing about it is I'll go see Radiohead live at Coachella, and they'll play like tons of new shit. Sometimes they won't play any old shit at all, but when they play songs on OK Computer I know what's going on, and I don't have to mouth the words. [Laughs.]

"I guess my favorite song off it is 'No Surprises.' In my iTunes it says that I've listened to it 371 times. At one point, people were trying to incorporate that record into their club DJing and stuff. It was funny. I remember hearing-this was obviously in 2007-hearing like Baltimore Club remixes of 'Everything Is In Its Right Place.' There were some really good ones."
