It’s the End of the World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine), R.E.M.


Have I ever mentioned that this was the first dance that my wife and I did at our reception?  – The Imperial March was for the procession marching in, of course.

  1. Very good, as always. Wish I could remember what my wife and I danced to at our reception. That’s coming up on 37 years ago, though.

  2. Amazon was selling a Best of REM from the early years for $5. Good stuff.

    I used to know the word to that song. That’s saying something. Michael Stipe had to get them from a fan Prodigy for their unplugged performance.

  3. When I was younger I used to think how IMPORTANT(!!!) the music was. Now when I listen to classic rock stations I think, “vapid, immature, narcissistic”. The young really are as stupid as they seem (we seemed).

  4. REM is particularly guilty of narcissism. They are perhaps the most pretentious rock band ever. But that was what made them good. They believed they were producing a higher art form.

    I once heard Peter Buck say that he didn’t think of himself as a musician, but instead a composer. A composer!! Too funny.
