…and I feel fine

REM announced that they are breaking up, for real this time.

It’s not happy news, since REM is one of my favorite bands of all time and definitely one of the best bands to see live. But better for them to hang it up now than shuffle ’round the world over and over again playing Greatest Hits shows because nobody gives even the tiniest shit about their new stuff. Plenty of bands do that, and it is sad.

Over on the Facebook, people were posting links to their favorite REM songs and that got me thinking. I have a terrible time deciding on a favorite anything, because tastes change, and there are songs that I like because they remind me of certain thingspeopleplaces and there are songs that I like because they are That Good.

So I made a list. I could have done what others have done and made a Spotify playlist, but that sounds exhausting.

3. Fall On Me
