Thom Yorke and Nigel Godrich on Love

Radiohead’s Thom Yorke and super-producer Nigel Godrich recently sat down with the online magazine, Rookie, in a series where young girls pose questions of the heart to older male celebrities. The affable duo fielded questions relating to confusing crushes (hint: follow them around ‘like a nutter’), dating, and breaking up in this seventeen minute video. It’s an oddly fascinating segment that might have us wishing that the two of them would get their own daytime chat show. Their surprisingly thoughtful responses are sweet and inspiring. Love is ‘one of the nicest things about being alive,’ Yorke assures the camera. The ‘little electrical impulses [of romantic feelings] are the best bit.’ These fairly sensible opinions are from the man who brought us ‘Creep.’

Bonus: witness Thom’s luring looks at Nigel with his wonky eye, which is actually discussed later in the video!
