But you gotta make your voice so low and gravelly it hurts...

I love this because it's almost possible to sing along to without sounding like a lunatic.

I saw R.E.M. live a few years ago in the Belfast Giants Ice Hockey arena and they played this song.  We were lucky in that the tickets we got were seats close to and just to the right of the stage.  

We had a great close up view of the band and Michael Stipe had a real charismatic presence.

The show was near the end of their career but you could tell straight away that they were the 'real deal' - a properly professional performance with mastery of their music.

The set they played, sounded to my ears anyway, very close to the recorded versions I had known by heart on their CD's.

I know that R.E.M. are no longer considered fashionable but some of their songs, including this one, stand the test of time.

This follows R.E.M. - World Leader Pretend on Radio Paradise. Can't say I've ever heard Bill play original work by the same artist back to back!

REM is to alt-rock as the Eagles are to counrty-rock, so please don't wonder because I am clued in, I don't need to read other comments, I can hear the song just fine, boring ahhs, lame chourus, elementay school drums, studio changes/tricks that try to cover up the lack of muscial content, flat vocals, an over-all blandness, like I said made for TV

 

 
Maybe without temporal reference your opinion would stand. We are so glad you are clued in.

Far from it, it's a song about something very personal to Michael Stipe and he sing it with real passion, sorry you can't detect that. For more info, if you care to please read some of the previous posts. This leaves me wondering who is clueless here.

Bill is playing this because he is a BRONCOS fan and knows that the Orange Crush defense has been reborn in 2015!
