The best REM song?
I was just listening to Murmur in full today and I was struck by just how bloody good it was, especially for a fan of full-scale riffola as I am.
The first half especially is brilliant, but Perfect Circle, yes: fantastic.
it makes me cry sometimes. The lyrics are absolute perfection.
is a brilliant album!
I was assuming this would be a thread about the band and I'd have to come in and be all like "I thought this was about the REM song". But it actually IS about the REM song :)
They are waaay better than Auf Der Maur, i'll say that much. They didn't let anyone smoke either and the toilet at the Apollo was so foggy noone could see where they were weeing. It was hell!
two good albums and one peice of balls.
the WORST REM song is 'stand' (i think thats what its called). by a Loooong way. i went to see them once. Idlewild supported. You could have built the pyramids with the amount of mums there.
ill give way on stand being the 'worst' (i still wouldnt say its good), but emotive had 'passive' and thats it. that album did less for the anti-war movement than schwarzenegger.
A bit pointless to be fair.It's been years since we've had a proper studio album from them...
would you rather have that or a tool album? thats the question. though the last tool album was a little weak in places.
