Harrowdown Hill is a song by Radiohead singer Thom Yorke, released on his debut solo album The Eraser 2006. It was released as a single on 21 August 2006, peaking at 23 in the UK Singles Chart.

Disc: 1. Drunkk Machine. Thom Yorke emerged with one of the best solo debuts of the past year, after a lot of people questioned whether he could stand out away from Radiohead. Harrowdown Hill is one of the best songs from that debut, here paired on a single with two previously unheard tracks. The title song opens with some strums on a guitar, right before a shimmering wave of electronica goes right over it. 0 out of 5 stars The album with this track on 'Eraser' is cheaper.

My vote max'd out even tho I don't think that the B-side is quintessential - It's just that the title song is too good.

As far as I know it's about the British government letting down a man involved in the military operations regarding the Iraq War - He was later found dead at Harrowdown Hill.
Taken from another site, I think this intepretation of the lyrics to Harrowdown Hill is a very interesting read:

Having started with a fairly uncommitted guitar riff that states no obvious mood, 'Harrowdown Hill' blossoms into a more intense song at around 1min 10secs. Still, without an understanding of what the lyrics mean you could play this song endlessly without ever really feeling its true sentiments (and even then, as it's Thom Yorke, you probably still won't really 'get it', I can only theorize on what his feelings were when he was penning this one).

The lines "Don't walk the plank, dispensed with," are most likely Yorke invoking a direct voice as Dr. David Kelly: an expert in Biological Warfare, employee of the UK's Ministry of Defence and a former UN Weapons Inspector in Iraq.
After his work in Iraq, Dr. Kelly was interviewed by journalist Andrew Gilligan for information to be used on the Today programme. The informationcaused a major political scandal regarding the Iraqi potential for Weapons of Mass Destruction as a reason for the invasion of Iraq by US and British Armed Forces.
Days after the interview, Dr. Kelly was found dead in an area known as Harrowdown Hill, about a mile from his Oxfordshire home. While the official line from the Ministry of Defence and the Hutton Enquiry stated that the cause of death was suicide by overdosing on co-proxamol and slitting his left wrist, Norman Baker, a Lib Dem MP, spent a year investigating his death and decided that there was insufficient evidence to support a verdict of suicide and murder was a much more likely reason.

This Suicide-Murder debate is captured by the line "Did I fall or was I pushed?" Falling implying suicide, being pushed implying murder. "Where's the blood" most likely refers to the lack of blood around Dr. Kelly's body, evidence that would seem to support the theory that he was murdered elsewhere and his body moved to Harrowdown Hill where it was discovered the next day.

The ministry mentioned slightly further on in the song is believed to be a reference to the United Kingdom's Ministry of Defence and that they should be asked as they are the ones responsible.

Thom Yorke has also been quoted as saying that this is the angriest song he has ever written.
