Some great lists here, but also plenty of songs that I haven't yet heard and need to check out.

I gave up after marking out a couple of dozen songs which 'had' to make the cut. R.E.M.'s catalogue of awesome songs is so large that listing a top twenty seems like it would be as difficult as, say, listing a top five.

I really wish the older albums would get a proper remastering job. Listening to songs like Begin The Begin on the remastered greatest hits package is a treasure, and the rest of the songs need that tender care as well.

Quite a few by the looks of things, but particularly Country Feedback, Begin the Begin, Gardening at Night, Pilgrimage, These Days.. Much of the R.E.M. catalogue is on sale at a major chain here at the moment so I might do a blitz and fill in some blanks.

But for now, I might go with:

Losing My Religion
So. Central Rain
The Great Beyond
E-Bow The Letter
Let Me In
Walk Unafraid
What's The Frequency, Kenneth?
New Test Leper
Find The River
Sweetness Follows

Zihua, I have links for you, but can't email or PM you through the board. Can you post your email, or (if you don't want to post it here), email me at alicia(dot)k(at)comcast(dot)net?

I still highly encourage you stocking up on REM's back catalogue, but wanted to let you see what the fuss was about some of these songs.

I can see Horse To Water potentially cracking me REM top ten and maybe Hollow Man.....though Sing To The Submarine and Mr Richards have plenty of room to grow in appeal
