The Best Thing To Listen To When You Are Infested With The Flu... Radiohead 01 & 10

So I am infected by virus. It's called Influenza and it looks like THIS. So I am trying to find something to listen to that will make me feel better. I came across this article on about some cool hidden "easter eggs" through the history of music. Pretty cool article but the one that really grabbed my attention is the Radiohead one. Now this is probably common knowledge with music nerds but I have a wife, kids and a job so this was news to me. But if you take OK Computer and In Rainbows, alternate the tracks (see listing below) and throw a 10 second cross fade (you can do that in iTunes) and Bob's your uncle. It's pretty amazing how well they flow together and even though it's not literally killing the disgusting flu virus in my body it's tricking my brain into being a little happier.
