...some song post Green.

I tried to spread out my picks over albums otherwise they were all going to be from Murmur, Reckoning etc. But those were the albums and songs that meant the most to me. Actually, going over the later albums I realized that I never gave these albums much of a chance due to the post release dissapointment but that they seem to have aged pretty well and I should go back and give them a listen.

Putting "Voice Of Harold" as no. 2 is probably the biggest dis you could ever give Stipe's lyrical skills, Jody. Not that that's not an entirely valid thing to do. I think certain tracks on people's POX here baffle me more than those on any other POX (Except "Emotional Rescue," which is a big sign the person just fuckin' hates the Stones). "Burning Hell" just allllmost made my POX. It was number 12, right behind "Driver 8."

Putting "Voice Of Harold" as no. 2

1) They're not in order.
2) You know as well as I do what an awful lyricist Stipe was capable of being even in his "heyday."
3) But he's a great singer!
4) "Emotional Rescue" was on my Stones POX and I'm sure I own more Stones than you, you little pipsqueak.

Jody Beth Rosen (Jody Beth Rosen), Sunday, 6 April 2003 21:36 (sixteen years ago) link

1)they should be! mine are!
2)I said it was valid!
3)Most of the time. Unless he's dreaming of Maria Calas, whoever she is, or feigning an accent.
4)Though I'm definitely taller than you, being called a pipsqueak is sorta cute. I suppose a Rod Stewart fan could find my including of "Crazy About Her" on my 10 of his equally despicable, but I think "Crazy About Her" has more enthusiasm than most of his material around that time (he even dances and humps a chair in the video. He's INTO it). I can't see a similar non-ironic saving grace in "Emotional Rescue."

I'm a little baffled by all the love for "Perfect Circle," which always struck me as the worst of their early songs. To me it sounds like the Doors.

Burr (Burr), Monday, 7 April 2003 23:16 (sixteen years ago) link

The Doors? My sister compared it to Sophie B Hawkins, which made more sense to me.

sundar subramanian (sundar), Monday, 7 April 2003 23:48 (sixteen years ago) link

It reminds me of the Doors in its kinda drecky use of a minor key (like, say, "The End") and Stipe's hollow, overly somber singing (very unlike most of his singing from this time, which I like a lot).

Sad Professor! I love that bit about half way through where those solemn piano notes drift in. Also an excellent chorus.

Untitled Final Song On Green - I'd completely forgotten about that one. I have to say that I haven't played Green in 5 years or more - is that the song where they swop instruments? I have no idea how it goes, except for a vague recollection of a clumsy drum intro (Buck?)

REM's been one of my favorite bands since adolescence but I'm happy for the band going out on their own terms. I haven't really loved an REM record since Automatic though I dug big parts of Monster & Up & haven't had much use of anything else of theirs.

but back in the day this would have spurred on more rumors of Stipey's imminent demise from AIDS so I guess we've, uh, grown or something?

Hongroe (Geir Hongro), Wednesday, 21 September 2011 22:35 (eight years ago) link

six years pass...

Having an R.E.M. phase after playing "World Leader Pretend" by chance (It was on a CD-R in the car, on an old holiday compilation).

Bemused to discover there were at least three albums that I hadn't even noticed/that don't even seem familiar in a "I saw that but decided not to bother" sort of way and that "Up" (which I do own) is really good.

I've never loved World Leader but someone on the Green poll thread brought up a good point that the Tourfilm version serves it really well. It looks like I posted this list above 15 years ago. I still can't really get too into the Warner Bro years, (although I really like a lot of the songs Bittersweet Me, Imitation of Life) I would have to do a separate list for that.

I should have found room for Electrolite.

Me too but I have no idea what I would dislodge to make room for it.

there are too many positive feelings on this thread. so let me say it: i think electrolite (which i like!), is possibly the most overrated REM song.

I have a mental thing where I think up additional lyrics: I'm Steve McQueen, I'm Jimmy Dean, I'm Martin Sheen, I'm Aqua Teen, I'm Vaseline, I'm Paula Deen, I'm Mister Bean, I'm Billie Jean, I'm David Lean, I'm margarine, etc.

YMP, i do the same with "catapult": "can of pork!, cat afloat!, gallow's pole!" lyrical madlibs was one of the minor joys of early mumbly michael singalongs. "electrolite" is maybe a final callback to those early days, on their last great (bill involved) album
