Paranoid - Paranoid Android - Netflix
“Paranoid Android” is a song by the English alternative rock band Radiohead, released as the lead single from their third studio album OK Computer (1997) on 26 May 1997. The darkly humorous lyrics were written primarily by singer Thom Yorke following an unpleasant experience in a Los Angeles bar. The song is more than six minutes long and contains four distinct sections. “Paranoid Android” takes its name from Marvin the Paranoid Android of Douglas Adams' The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series. Released as the lead single from OK Computer, “Paranoid Android” charted at number three on the UK Singles Chart. It was well received by music critics. The track has appeared regularly on lists of the best songs of all time, including Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. Its animated music video, directed by Magnus Carlsson, was placed on heavy rotation on MTV, although the network censored portions containing nudity in the US. At the 1998 Brit Awards, the song was nominated for Best British Single. Since its release, the track has been covered by numerous artists working in a variety of musical genres. The song was included in the 2008 Radiohead: The Best Of collection.

YouTube cover artist Mike Massé recorded a live acoustic version of “Paranoid Android” with Jeff Hall on 9/8/08 at the Pie Pizzeria in Salt Lake City, Utah. American metal band System of a Down additionally performed a cover of Paranoid Android at a Los Angeles live performance in 2000. Jazz pianist Brad Mehldau recorded a nine-minute cover of “Paranoid Android” on his album Largo (2002), featuring percussionists Jim Keltner and Matt Chamberlain, as well as a horn section. Additionally, Mehldau performed a 19-minute version of the song on Live in Tokyo (2004). Yet another solo version of 9 minutes appeared on the promotional album Deregulating Jazz (2000). The University of Massachusetts Amherst Minuteman Marching Band covered the song live in a version featuring xylophones, chimes, snare drums, cymbals, bass drum and timpani. Numerous Radiohead tribute albums include a version of “Paranoid Android”, including Rockabye Baby! Lullaby Renditions of Radiohead and Plastic Mutations: The Electronic Tribute to Radiohead. The reggae group Easy Star All-Stars covered OK Computer in its entirety for Radiodread (2006). Producer Michael G noted that “Paranoid Android” was particularly difficult to arrange for reggae, saying “There are songs like 'Paranoid Android', which flips between 4/4 time and 7/8 time about 13 times, and I also had to think about other ways to reinterpret those parts with horns, melodica, organ ... it was a great challenge.” Sia Furler covered the song for the neo soul tribute Exit Music: Songs with Radio Heads (2006), and this version later appeared on The O.C. episode “The Chrismukk-huh?”. “Paranoid Android” has also been covered by classical musicians. Christopher O'Riley arranged “Paranoid Android” for a single piano and performed the song on Hold Me to This (2005). Los Angeles string quartet The Section recorded the song for Strung Out on OK Computer: The String Quartet Tribute to Radiohead (2001); half of this quartet went on to form the Section Quartet, who performed “Paranoid Android” and the rest of OK Computer during two concerts in October 2006. Weezer covered “Paranoid Android” in both a live studio version released as a YouTube video and in concerts during their 2011 summer tour. Pitchfork's Tom Breihan called the Weezer cover “a fucking weird experience”, and Jenny Eliscu of Rolling Stone criticised the song as “mainly boring” for not venturing far enough from Weezer's traditional sound. A piano cover was featured in an episode of the HBO television series Westworld in 2016.
