Today’s a pretty sad day for music: seminal band R.E.M. has announced their breakup. Michael Stipe and his crew have been around since 1981, and in that time they’ve released 15 studio albums. People often say that R.E.M. fans are very intense, devoted, and specific in their love for the band, and I’ve always found that to be true. Because I edit this little old blog which means I can, here are my five favorite R.E.M. songs.
1. The Sidewinder Sleeps Tonight
3. Country Feedback
4. What’s the Frequency, Kenneth?
5. Me In Honey
