My top four from this album:

Monty Got A Raw Deal
Man On The Moon
Nightswimming
Find The River (the ending trio of this album is one of the all-time greats)

Next up, Everybody Hurts. I want to hurt Stipe every time I hear it. I consider it an act of self defense.

Man On the Moon is a really great song, but I am SO tired of it.

My top 4:

Find the River
Drive
Try Not to Breathe
Sweetness Follows

My top 4 are Sidewinder, Man on the Moon, Nightswimming and Find the River. All 4 of which would probably be in my all-time top 10 or 15 R.E.M. songs.

And I'm not sure what I want to vote for here.

even if I would listen to Everybody Hurts 5 times a day for the next 40 years Ignoreland would still be an inferior song

And Star Me Kitten is one of my favorites here, but it's clearly not going to make it very far.

I guess I'm in the minority, because despite it being overplayed, I don't mind Everybody Hurts.

Ignoreland for me.

My top four would be Try Not To Breathe, Man On The Moon, Nightswimming, and Find The River.

Finally, an R.E.M. album I know backwards and forwards, so I can participate!

Monty Got A Raw Deal

Everybody Hurts, I suppose. I rather enjoy Ignoreland, actually. The two songs I particularly want to be finalists are Drive and Find The River; I'm not so fussed what other songs fill the remaining spots. Would like Ignoreland to be one of them, but if it goes, it goes and I don't care too greatly.

I was torn between MGaRD and Ignoreland. Went for MGaRD.

EDIT: People voting for Everybody Hurts is sad. If it wasn't released as a single and wasn't a "hit" I believe it wouldn't recieve a single vote. Just like UtEotW in U2's Survivor.

And btw, 22 votes! Awesome!

Except Until the End of the World wasn't a huge single, and it hasn't been overplayed, and it doesn't get that many votes in the survivors.

If the final three tracks don't all make it through it will be a sad, sad day.

wow, I figgured Everybody Hurts was more liked than this, it's never been a fav of mine but still...

I voted for Ignoreland to hopefully at least get a double elmination this round, even though I dislike Star Me Kitten more.
