I think it will be difficult to remake a song like "Wallflower",but Radiohead are great,i think this song is suited to their style
The meaning of the song is very deep,the lyrics are cryptic and fashinating (as always with Peter),the "physical and mental cages". . . .it is not an easy-song.
The problem is how an Artist (or a band like Radiohead)is able to put something personal in a song by Gabriel,it is not easy,in my opinion,because the incredible personality of Gabriel in the original songs is something. . . . . "to take fright" :-]

I guess that in the NEW BLOD TOUR, Peter won't sing neither wallflower nor "mercy street" (my PG favorite song today) nor the others already identified here because if it does , he may influence the "I'll scratch yours" actors , don't you think?

I thought elbow was doing Red Rain? Well actually I'm a lot more excited about them doing Mercy Street. Think it will fit them perfectly and they can do something cool with that.
Also confirmed now is that Brian Eno is doing "In Your Eyes".

Brian Eno "In your eyes"?
I have find on youtube "By this river" where Eno sings, i think he has a sad way of singing. . . .and his voice is . . . . .not exciting. . :-]
By the way,full of respect of Eno,i hope he will do a good job.
