A very controversial song in that fans are violently divided as to whether they like it or not. Even I'm not sure yet. It features a harsh kind of snappy beat which continues in the background throughout. Including other melodic keyboard plays and sounds as the track continues. The only vocals are Thom saying, not singing the lyrics. His voice has been tampered with, but you can still hear what he really sounds like. There is no singing.

It's very original, I'll give it that. There's a kind of constant beat going on throughout, and some interesting keyboard plaing... A lot of people love it, so you'll have to see for yourself. There's a nice sounding loop type thing (yes) at the end and it's great :0 It keeps getting higher and higher.

There are barn doors
And there are revolving doors
Doors on the rudders of big ships
And little revolving doors

There are doors that open by themselves
There are sliding doors
And there are secret doors

There are doors that lock
And doors that don't
There are doors that let you in and out
But never open
And there are trapdoors
That you can't come back from
Thom Yorke "Revolving Doors is something that happened in my brain where... Like, Alice in Wonderland. Is it Alice in Wonderland? Where she walks down the corridor and there are lots of different doors. I was sort of in that corridoor, mentally for 6 months. And that was an extremely central part, for me, what I was writing. Cuz every door I opened, it was like, dreading opening it. Cuz I didn't know what was gonna happen next. See, that makes perfect sense!" - Thom
