Mandy Moore duets with Michael Stipe

Mandy Moore and Michael Stipe have recorded a cover of the Beach Boys' "God Only Knows" for Moore's upcoming movie Saved!.

The R.E.M. singer, who co-produced the teen spoof, wanted to join Moore after hearing her initial rendition of the song. "He left me such a sweet little message like, 'You have such a beautiful voice,'" Moore says. "That he wanted to be a part of it was so fucking cool. He actually invited me into his studio to meet the guys."

In Saved! -- which Stipe has likened to "monster vampire high school kind of movies, only here the monsters are Jesus-freak teenagers" -- Moore stars alongside a wheelchair-bound McCauley Caulkin as a Bible-thumping senior at American Christian High.

"My character just thinks that she is so much better than everybody else because she has this personal relationship with Jesus," Moore says. "I got to play the bad girl, which is so much more fun than what I've been doing: the girl who always gets the guy at the end of the film."

Her newest album is covers of XTC, Joe Jackson, The Waterboys, Joni Mitchell, Blondie, etc. It was also produced in part by Andy Sturmner, who was in Jellyfish and made the best album ever-Spilt Milk.

I agree, Jesus-freak teenagers are monsters...

Stipe has sold out though... or is it cool to be with the teen pop stars who reject their own music....

Why is it out of character for Stipe? He goes to a Hootie and the Blowfish concert and gives them some praise. There was another instance where Stipe gave priase to a mainstream groups rendition of an REM song...

Face it....









Stipe is a teenybopper....

Not REM just Stipe... I thought, guilt by association was commonly accepted here.

There is one teenybopper rock band/ individual that Stipe did give a little praise/ attended a concert for but I can't remember the name of the "modern" group.

I like Cracked Rear View and would listen to it now but many of my CDS are packed away in a crate...
