The Athens scene was incredible. REM was very influenced by both the B-52s and Pylon. They even did a cover of Crazy on Dead Letter Office (as I just noticed Nea mention). This was a good choice, Occult. REM is my second favorite band next to the Beatles. Best albums: Murmur, Reckoning, and Automatic For the People. Favorite tracks: So. Central Rain and Everybody Hurts. Maybe I'll post So. Central Rain later after I'm done playing with Spotify.

I think you’re right that those are the top three.

Damn.

My favorite REM song is Perfect Circle.

Can we at least agree that "Everybody Hurts" blows ass chunks?

No.

It’s so sentimental and vulnerable you almost feel embarrassed for them

but then it falls back on something very powerful...

truth

and having a voice big enough to say it

it’s a fantastic beautiful courageous song

No, it's so cringy and overwrought that I feel embarrassed for myself for listening to it.

Any song that embarrasses you has to be unassailable

To paraphrase, you basically hurt inside listening to it.
See everybody hurts sometimes. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

@OccultHawk still like to know what you think of Kohoutek.
