The most conventional Radiohead song I've heard for a while. This features electric guitars as the central instrument for a change. Fast paced, and upbeat. This could actually do well as a single. I love the way the beats stop, and it all becomes soft towards the end. Simple, but beautiful, as Thom howls and sings his lyrics amazingly.

The band have been playing this one live for a while, too. Jonny has been quoted saying that this could be one of the upcoming Amnesiac singles.

A touching love song, this is one of the lyrically stronger tracks on the album. It seems to tell the story of a couple who were in love, and now life isn't treating them so well. With lyrics like 'What would I do if I did not have you?' and 'Let's think about the good times and never look back'. Of course, I could be horrifically wrong :D

Update: In November 2001, a Live EP was released with the title 'I Might Be Wrong: Live Recordings'. Two videos were also created in its promotion. An Internet only video by Chris Bran, and a video for TV by Sophie Muller. Though both videos featured studio versions of the track, and despite all its promotion, an actual studio version of this track is not available as a single or on an EP (except the really rare ones).

I Might Be Wrong appeared on the soundtrack to the movie Vanilla Sky, which featured Tom Cruise.

I might be wrong, I might be wrong
I could have sworn I saw a light coming on
I used to think, I used to think
There was no future left at all
I used to think

Open up, begin again
Let's go down the waterfall
Think about the good times and never look back
Never look back

What would I do? What would I do?
If I did not have you

Open up and let me in
Let's go down the waterfall
Have ourselves a good time, it's nothing at all
It's nothing at all, nothing at all

The waves go out
Come in again
