Pyramid Song
Radiohead - Amnesiac (Album) (2001) - "Pyramid Song"

The rhythm of the repeating 16 beat section is divided up into one measure of 5/4, one measure of 8/4, 
and one measure of 3/4.  Over the top of the [| 5/4 | 8/4 | 3/4 |] pattern, play each chord for the 
length of a dotted quarter note unless there are only 2 beats remaining in the measure, in which case 
play the chord for the length of a half note.  This means that there are three chords in the 5/4 
measure, five chords in the 8/4 measure, and two chords in the 3/4 measure.  Some of the chords in the 
second verse are only written out to show the fills between vocal lines.  Cheers, rockinattica

About the artist behind Pyramid Song:

Radiohead are an English alternative rock band from Oxfordshire. The band is composed of Thom Yorke (lead vocals, rhythm guitar, piano, electronics), Jonny Greenwood (lead guitar, other instruments), Ed O'Brien (guitar, backing vocals), Colin Greenwood (bass guitar, synthesisers) and Phil Selway (drums, percussion). Radiohead have released seven albums and have sold over 23 million records throughout their career.[1]

Radiohead released their first single, "Creep", in 1992, and their debut album, Pablo Honey, in 1993. Though initially unsuccessful, "Creep" was a worldwide hit when reissued a year later. Radiohead's popularity in the United Kingdom increased with the release of their second album, The Bends (1995). The band's textured guitar atmospheres and Yorke's falsetto singing were warmly received by critics and fans. With the release of OK Computer (1997), Radiohead were propelled to greater fame worldwide. Featuring an expansive sound and themes of alienation from the modern world, OK Computer has often been acclaimed as a landmark record of the 1990s.

The release of Kid A (2000) and Amnesiac (2001) saw Radiohead reach their peak popularity, although the albums divided critical opinion. This period marked a change in Radiohead's musical style, with their incorporation of avant-garde electronic music, Krautrock and jazz influences. Hail to the Thief (2003), Radiohead's sixth album, blended styles from throughout the band's career, mixing guitar-driven rock, electronic influences and contemporary lyrics. Radiohead subsequently left their record label, EMI, and released their seventh album, In Rainbows (2007), through their own website as a digital download for which customers selected their own price.
