a truly amazing song! I used to hear a lot of people plugging it as the best REM song, and I liked it, but could realy go that far at all. Now I don't know I'd call it the best REM song, but wow. wow. wow. wow.

All these old REM songs take me back to when I was about 9 and my Dad always played it in his car! Same with a lot of U2 stuff...I'm lucky to have a Dad with great taste in music so that I still love all these great bands!

Lets start with the fact that Automatic for the People is one of my all time favorite records.

Then lets look not only at nightswimming, but the coupling of nightswimming and find the river (which I think you really must do for an adequate critique of either song.)

I think the first shows despair, then the second shows hope, almost moreso than any other song I know.

These songs remind me of laying awake late at night my freshman year of college.

These songs always bring a tear to my eye and I consider myself a pretty tough dude...

Sweetness Follows can also bring a tear to my eye.

"Sweetness Follows" is a beautiful song that should nonetheless be kept far, far away from people contemplating suicide.

the recklessness of water...

Beautiful song. One of REM's best, if not the best. Beautiful melody.

No doubt. I had that on repeat once for 125 spins.
