I loved R.E.M. Still do. I was devastated when I heard they broke up a few months ago after being together for 35 YEARS. Now I have a huge regret that somehow I never saw them in concert. An article about the end of R.E.M is here HERE.
Does anyone remember this excellent TV show? “Stand” was the theme song:
Such a great song:
I was going to post some of the lyrics for "It's The End of the World", but I couldn’t choose. Lyrics are HERE. Such a cool song:
R.E.M. was supposed to collaborate with Nirvana shortly before Kurt Cobaine killed himself. “Everybody Hurts” came out before, but it felt related:
Their last release was “Mine Smell Like Honey” live not too long ago from their last album, Collapse into Now.
R.E.M is one of my favorite bands

“Did you never call? I waited for your call.
These rivers of suggestion are driving me away.
The ocean sang, the conversation dimmed.
Go build yourself another dream, this choice isn’t mine.”
- “So. Central Rain (I’m Sorry)” R.E.M.
Honorable Mention: Rick Springfield, The Replacements
P.S. I'm going to be at the NE-SCBWI conference for the next 3 days. I plan to comment when I can, but will make sure to visit all your blogs and return comments on the posts I missed ASAP. xo
