Interesting facts and trivia about Jigsaw Falling Into Place. By Songfacts®.

When the band showcased this song on their 2006 tour it was known as "Open Pick."

In an interview with the New Musical Express December 8, 2007, vocalist and lyricist Thom Yorke was asked if he'd experienced the night out he describes in this song first hand. Yorke replied: "I would never say it was personal because it's always a set of observations. 'Jigsaw Falling Into Place' says much about the fact I used to live in the center of Oxford and used to go out occasionally and witness the chaos of a weekend around here. But it's also about a lot of different experiences. Personally, I was really surprised that it's going to be the single. The lyrics are quite caustic - the idea of 'before you're comatose' or whatever, drinking yourself and getting f--ked-up to forget. When you're part of a group of people who are all trying to forget en masse it is partly this elation. But there's a much darker side."

When the album was initially released in 2 formats, an innovative DRM-free download with a name-your-own price scheme or in a deluxe boxed version. Guitarist Jonny Greenwood was asked by Rolling Stone magazine why they initially chose to release the album this way. He replied: "Partly just to get it out quickly, so everyone would hear it at the same time, and partly because it was an experiment that felt worth trying, really." Greenwood was then asked about the variable pricing. His response was: "It's fun to make people stop for a few seconds and think about what music is worth, and that's just an interesting question to ask people."
