Detroit Lions Week 4 Song of the Game: “Everything In Its Right Place” by Radiohead

For a organization that has been married to futility, everything is in just the right place.

It’s only Week 4 and I’ve already reached the point in the season where I’m dipping into Radiohead’s discography for catharsis.

Things are getting dark, folks.

Detroit Lions Week 4 Song of the Game: “Everything In Its Right Place” by Radiohead

Yesterday I woke up sucking a lemon

It’s a feeling Lions fans are all too familiar with: Monday morning bitterness.

After Sunday’s loss to the New Orleans Saintsin what can only be described as extremely Lions fashion these days—the Lions dropped to 1-3 and the seat has never been so hot for Matt Patricia after his postgame comments made their rounds.

Only four weeks into the season and we’ve reached the crossroads of tanking hashtags, the search for the team’s next head coach, and feeling bad for Matthew Stafford having to play for such a pitifully run franchise.

Everything in its right place

Just where it belongs, just as it’s always been. Even during the high times, this team had a way to drag you back to the harrowing and harsh reality of Lions fandom. It’s a long hole we find ourselves at the bottom of without the means to resurface.

We talked ourselves into believing things might be different when the team jumped out to a 14-0 lead in the first quarter last week. Maybe they were going to put it together and get to the bye week at .500.

Nope. The Detroit Lions are bad. They’re poorly coached, grossly misconstructed, and downright pitiful. Again...

Everything in its right place

Song of the Game is an opportunity for our staff to express their weekly feelings of being a Lions fan, but through the art of song. Each week, we’ll provide a song that perfectly encapsulates the Lions’ game and how we experienced it. By the end of the year, we’ll have a full Spotify playlist telling the story of the 2019 Detroit Lions season.

You can listen to previous year’s soundtracks right here: 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019

Here’s this year’s playlist:
