In this situation, I refuse to play the Shiny Happy People card. That would be cruel.

There's always Underneath the Bunker, which is wonderful in its silliness and oft-missing lightheartedness, but I will not because ....

.... oh, I can't resist.

I will fight and you will hide
and we shall hide together dear
underneath the bunker in the .... uh .... something something yodel.

I have water I have rum
Wait for dawn and dawn shall come
Underneath the bunker in the ... uh ... something something yodel.

I'm SO there.

Better have that rum, though.

Pure brilliance, first album. Right there, man.

Love We Walk, sounds like a kids song.

I suppose, at least you can decipher the lyrics, unlike in 9-9.

Hang up your chairs to better sweep
Clear the floor to dance
Shake the rug into the fireplace

Most underated REM song IMO, along with Endgame, Belong, Beachball and Worst Joke Ever( I never !!! )

Endgame isn't really a "song", but I like it.

Belong is definitely underrated, and I love that sax solo in Fireplace. It often gets overlooked on Document, but I'm so sick of the back-to-back singles in the middle of the album that I often skip right to that track.

Before playing a bunch of the new record on the radio last night, I played these

R.E.M - Moral Kiosk

R.E.M – Harborcoat

R.E.M – Can’t Get There from Here

R.E.M - I Believe

R.E.M - Finest Worksong

R.E.M - I Remember California

R.E.M – Belong

R.E.M - Find the River

R.E.M – Everybody Hurts

R.E.M – What's the Frequency Kenneth?

The last two were not on the playlist but a request from a listener.

Then, I picked Man Sized, Hollow Man, and Until the Day from the Accelerate.
