                Are you kidding me?! Thom! You are a genius, we love you. This is a pure living treasure, I can't believe he went on a late show, he overcame his shyness eventually

                    My ex-fiance got us tickets to a Radiohead concert for my birthday back in 2014 and I was beyond excited. Unfortunately - and at no fault to the band - from an acoustic/technical standpoint it was one of the worst concerts I've ever attended. The PA system was cranked to 11, and you could barely understand what Thom was singing (like someone trying to sing with a handful of marbles in their mouth). Still enjoyed it, but would really like to see them in a venue worthy of their remarkable talent.

                    Great interview, but it weird seeing Thom on a late-night show.

That confused Colbert because most people know the song as "South Central Rain." The song is listed on the album as "So. Central Rain". I don't know if Thom didn't understand the abbreviation, or maybe he was just being true to the way it's listed on the album. Who knows, maybe Michael Stipe says the same thing (So). I just read on Wikipedia that the inner sleeve of the album lists the track as "Southern Central Rain." So maybe EVERYBODY is getting the title wrong. Almost all of the videos on Youtube call the song "South Central Rain."
