Radiohead and R&G

Call it a coincidence or call me crazy, but I've found some connections between Radiohead's works and the text in Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead.

Page 38
- There! ... and we'll soon be home and dry...and high and dry...

Page 41
- Some kings tend to be amnesiac, others I suppose -- the opposite, whatever that is...
- What did you have in mind?... A short, blunt human pyramid...?

- On Amnesiac, Radiohead has two songs: "Dollars and Cents" and "Spinning Plates." Rosencrantz and Guildernstern discuss spinning coins together.
