Pet Sounds tribute – REM

I found out yesterday that REM had split up. It’s my opinion that they always got a bum deal with the cool kids, lumped in with U2, Simple Minds and other 80s/90s rock bores. I’ve put this together to show that love them or hate them, to deny the sheer volume of memorable songs they contributed to the world is just a bit naïve. There are tons of obvious omissions but this is my pick. It’s chronological save for the first and last track.
I went to see REM in 1995 at Milton Keynes Bowl and it was brilliant, they commanded an elated and adoring crowd like very few bands I’ve seen since. People are going to be listening to REM for a long time and hopefully these 30 tracks will remind you why.

If they were good enough for KRS-One and Patti Smith, then they’re good enough for me.

    Shiny. And this was one of the obvious omissions, sorry, had to trim to 30. Hope you enjoyed it anyway…
