Thursday Thirteen #8

So it’s been awhile…but I’ve managed a list for this week’s TT. I was inspired driving to work the other day–it was a trivia question about R.E.M and they played “Crush with Eyeliner” and I turned it up and had a fabulous commute that day. And I began to wonder–why don’t I listen to R.E.M more often? I freakin’ LOVE R.E.M. So today’s list is in honor of R.E.M., one of my all time favorite bands. Here’s a list (in no particular order) of some of my favorite songs:

1. The One I Love (Probably the first REM song I ever heard–I was in the 8th or 9th grade)
2. The End of the World as We Know It (saw this one live in concert–INCREDIBLE!)
3. Stand (used to dance to this one with the kids I babysat)
4. Shiny Happy People
5. I am Superman (Love, Love, Love this song)
6. Everybody Hurts
7. Crush with Eyeliner
8. Losing my Religion
9. World Leader Pretend
10. Radio Free Europe
11. Don’t Go Back to Rockville
12. Sweetness Follows

And for kicks, here’s Michael Stipe being silly. Oh, and there’s a new album out next week.
