K,
OK Computer and In Rainbows, when sequenced together, complement each other perfectly(?). And apparently, Radiohead designed this intentionally. According to a few conspiracy theorists (and allegedly Thom Yorke himself), there are a number of cryptic clues that link the two albums:

Ten years after OK Computer shocked the world, Radiohead released In Rainbows on October 10 (10/10). Though no one was expecting the album to be released until 2008, Radiohead announced In Rainbows just ten days in advance. In Rainbows, which consists of ten letters, has ten tracks, and would be downloadable from a rumored ten servers.

The only way to understand this is to do it yourself. I just did it and I’ll wait for you to finish before discussing anything.
First, go to iTunes -> Preferences -> Playback -> Set crossfade to 10 seconds.
Then, create this playlist:
1. Airbag (OK Computer)2. 15 Step (In Rainbows)3. Paranoid Android (OK Computer)4. Bodysnatchers (In Rainbows)5. Subterranean Homesick Alien (OK Computer)6. Nude (In Rainbows)7. Exit Music (For A Film) (OK Computer)8. Weird Fishes/Arpeggi (In Rainbows)9. Let Down (OK Computer)10. All I Need (In Rainbows)11. Karma Police (OK Computer)12. Fitter Happier (OK Computer)13. Faust Arp (In Rainbows)14. Electioneering (OK Computer)15. Reckoner (In Rainbows)16. Climbing Up The Walls (OK Computer)17. House Of Cards (In Rainbows)18. No Surprises (OK Computer)19. Jigsaw Falling Into Place (In Rainbows)20. Lucky (OK Computer)21. Videotape (In Rainbows)22. The Tourist (OK Computer)
Then, feel free to check out this guy’s analysis of how these 22 songs match up with the 22 cards in a Tarot deck.
