One should not question IWB, she lies like the rest of us breathe.

One of their best from the IRS albums.

unfortunately, that love for that song would be past tense. i almost never listen to the radio, but every time i do if i hear an rem song it's either driver 8, the one i love, or ... in that particular order of popularity. in recent years, that is. go back to whenever the great beyond came out, and it would be that and man on the moon, but the two rock stations here that play rem have this massive love affair with driver 8 that did nothing but kill my own love for that song.

i should really just listen to the album again, since i haven't done that in quite a few years, and shut up about how much i don't like it until i have an opinion based on some current listening.

The three R.E.M. songs I hear on the radio the most are:

1. The One I Love (easily the most)
2. WTF Kenneth?
3. Losing My Religion

Is there anyone who likes Old Man Kensey? It' probably my favourite on the album.

Can't even tell you how it goes.

I'd be surprised if any of the band members could, either.

Wish I heard What's The Frequency Kenneth on the radio more often than I do.

I just hear the Document singles and Losing My Religion on a constant loop.

oh yeah, they play losing my religion from time to time as well. probably more often than it's the end... actually. it's just that every time i turn on the radio, if i listen to two particular stations for any length of time (say, switching between them for an hour, two tops), i WILL hear driver 8 at some point. sure, it's a good song and i'm so glad they i get that over everybody hurts or man on the moon. i just don't understand when you've got such a long-running band with so many good singles--including many more recent and much more popular ones, why that particular song?

i'd put that mystery in the same category as why do they also play "two princes" on the same sort of regular basis.



i would love to hear WTFK in its place. pretty sure i'll never get sick of that song.

I don't think I'd heard Driver 8 in my life until buying Fables a few weeks back.

I like Old Man Kensey. I could not, however, identify Good Advices.

Great song. I loved it when I first heard it back in 94 (?) and I love it now. Monster as a whole is underappreciated, I think.

If you have something to say to me, Cori, then just say it.

That's only the half of it:

"At the end of the day, I’ll forget your name"


Great song.
