‘Stand.’

It’s got a nice beat and you can dance to it.

    I don’t reach for the volume knob to turn “Stand” up the way I do “What’s the Frequency, Kenneth?” ..

    But yeah, “Stand” and “Orange Crush” were the first two REM songs I ever heard, and I like ’em .. I just think “What’s the Frequency, Kenneth?” is .. musically superior.

    p.s. That I like the song has nothing to do with the Dan Rather tie-in.

    I prefer Weird Al’s parody _Spam_ instead.

    I went to college with one of the dancers. He’s the guy on the left of the grouping that makes its first appearance at 0:20.

    Yes. I know. It’s very exciting. Shut up.

    I actually like a lot of the early REM stuff. Kinda lost interest around the Monster era, though.
