R.E.M. The Great Beyond

Right after the bleakness of Up when we least expected it, they released this gorgeous gem of a song for the 'Man On The Moon' soundtrack. I it so much that I decided to find out if more people feel the same way. Wish this had been an indicator of which way their sound would progress. But outside of Imitation Of Life, I can't think of any other song since then that's as pretty as The Great Beyond.

I’m breaking through
I’m bending spoons
I’m keeping flowers in full bloom
I’m looking for answers from the great beyond

Yes, I LOVE this song!! The music is really good and the chorus is very catchy. And yeah, the lyrics are pretty good too. One of the songs that made me want to go further into the R.E.M. catalogue.

It's bizarre that they released "The Great Beyond" and "Bad Day," two of their best singles ever, while they were making those crappy post-Up albums.

Ah, yes, great song. Brings back some really nice memories for me whenever I hear it . Can't go wrong with a song that does that .

Count me in! I will always love REM, even if they continue to release some "challenging" albums.

Love the song, especially the video for it. R.E.M. will always be number 2 in my book, no matter what kinds of albums they release. Oh, and I love Around the Sun, by the way.

We have similar ways of thinking.
