So the single has gone to radio -- has anybody heard it? I like it a lot, but that might be just me... I hope to be hearing it!

I'm not sure what I think so far. Not exactly their best lead single of all time, but not bad either.

Why does Interference do stuff like this? This is the one and only site on the internet I've ever seen that can't seem to handle links.

Good song, just not lead single stuff. I hope this isn't the most "rocking" song on the album though. Bad Day may have been a brother to It's The End of The World, but it was nice to hear the band rock again, something their last 2 records have had none of.

Here's this since the other link wont work on Interference:

This one is better quality anyways, but you need Quicktime. This is the full 'Leaving New York' by the way.

curse my blasted computer connection.

i think i like what i've heard (the clip, not the whole song), but as mrbrau mentioned about the rocking or rather lack of rocking...

i am optimistic.

see that's why I never d/l U2 snippets

as much as those 44 seconds didn't do much for me
as much as I loved listening to the entire song


that second verse entirely won me over
Michael Stipe is my #2 hero

Still funny.

It appears as though they'll be stopping here too.

Yeah I got fanclub tickets for fourth row in Indy, woo hoo!

I'm a die-hard R.E.M. fan so of course I like their new single. They've had differing styles over the years and I like all of them depending on the mood I'm in. "Leaving New York" does seem like a "slow burner" as opposed to a rocker. I doubt they'll ever be as rocky as Monster again. However I've heard the new album has a more "band" sound to it. I guess time will tell. . .

In the meantime I'm very, very looking foward to seeing the band up close and personal!

I know what you're saying about Thunder Bay. I think they do the same coming to Blossom at Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio. They play Cuyahoga every time they go there I bet I wonder if they'll have music requests again?

Heh heh, Stipe is my #2 hero as well

I think that this song has a bit more of a "band" feel than the last couple albums. But for a first single this is a bad choice. It's almost like they're trying not to succeed. I think the chorus is beautiful by the way.

They say R.E.M. has a history of choosing the wrong songs for singles!

This song does have some mellow "Reveal" moments to it, I'll admit. But I still like it
