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.

    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.

    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.

    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).

  • NotSoBlueStater says:

    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.
