    REM is a band that I love and hate. They have some absolutely great songs, and then some that just leave me flat. Unfortuantely, this one has always been the latter.

I've always loved his flailing dancing in this video.

    I used to think that this was the saddest song every, until I heard Old Main Drag by the Pogues.

The Pogues song sounds like an Irish drinking song.


    I hadn't heard this version in so long, because it seems like the Johnny Cash version always gets played.

    It seemed like after Angel, Aerosmith just kept redoing the same song. Not that the songs are bad, but this was always seemed like an Angel clone.

It's funny I like Cryin' but Angel is just too sappy for me.

    Great song. This was one that really grew on me. You'd listen to Nevermind for all the big songs, but you'd still listen to the whole CD, and eventually, you just think,"Wow, that is awesome!"

For sure, There isn't a bad song on the album.

    Like me some Morphine. The band, never had the drug, although, after childbirth, my wife said it could bring about world peace.

I haven't had the pleasure of Morphine either but I hear it's divine.

Glad you enjoyed listening to the tunes!
