Btw, even if the rest of DLO is not represented, at least Chronic Town should be!

Finest Worksong and Turn You Inside Out are the exact same song, by the way.
"I'm tossing up punchlines that were never there"?

AWKWARD.

And your comparison may be true, but that shouldn't tarnish the standing of the earlier song.

Nah, it wasn't said in relation to The Great Beyond - it reminded me of that when you said TGB sounded like another of their songs.

I don't mind the lyric about the punchline, but it's weird the way he sings "punchline." It almost sounds like "paunchline."

The worst Stipe lyric ever? Easily "leaving was never my proud." He could have gotten away with that earlier, during his Mumbly Joe period, but in a time where he sings clearer and you can understand the lyrics, it's a shitty line that makes absolutely no sense.

Yeah, I agree with you, but I'm looking at the R.E.M. songs I have here on my pc and look how many will be left behind:

All Dead Letter Office album
Chronic Town EP
(All I've Got to Do Is) Dream
Revolution
Wichita Lineman
[live]
It's a Free World Baby
Winged Mammal Theme
First We Take Manhattan
Tricycle
Wall of Death
Romance
Mandolin Strum
Chance (Dub)
Funtime
2JN
The Great Beyond
Bad Day
Animal
All the Right Friends
#9 Dream
Last Date
Fretless
Rotary Eleven
Fruity Organ
Arms of Love
Ghost Riders
Dark Globe
Tired of Singing Trouble
Love Is All Around
[live]
Tighen Up
Moon River
Forty Second Song
Memphis Train Blues
The Lion Sleeps Tonight
Redhead Walking
Airliner


That's a lot of stuff... maybe we should spit it in two blocks and do them after the albums with two or three songs going from each block.

After their little acoustic mini-tour after Out of Time and hearing the same versions of the same songs on radio shows, TV shows and everything else, I never, ever, ever want to hear their cover of "Love Is All Around" again.

BAAAAA BA BA BA BAAAA, BA BA BAAAAAA!

Aww, that was sweet when I first heard it.

Funny Michael.

It totally was sweet the first 5,000 times I heard it. I was heavily into my REM obsession at that point, so I listened to bootlegs over and over again. That was plenty - I don't need to hear it ever again. I skip past it when I listen to / watch the Unplugged show.

If anyone else wants them, let me know.

Laz, if you wouldn't mind, I'd like Staring Down the Barrel. Thanks!

It was really weird seeing nicely dressed, receding hairline Michael turn into t-shirt-wearing, shaved head Michael in that Kenneth video. It was as strange a transformation as cowboy Bono into The Fly.
