Best R.E.M. Songs


The Contenders: Page 4XW

61The Worst Joke Ever

How was this not even on the list? The lyrics are so simply beautiful. - lachiemcdonald

63Monty Got a Raw Deal

Why is this at 65? The guitar, the vocals... Top 3. - Toraqi

64Try Not to Breathe

Probably the best song on Automatic. Makes me feel like I'm floating on air.

Yeah, this is my favorite R.E.M. song. Haunting lyrics, "I need you to rememberr..."

You have to hear it several times to love this song.

Very nice piece. Light but has a depth

66Exhuming McCarthy

To me, this has got to be the best song off of Document.

68These Days

This has to be the realest and most original song they have ever made. The message it carries make it stand out from all their great songs

Great rocker from Pageant! Only surpassed by Hyena - where is that?


Good album, good song

70Gardening at Night

One of their first songs, one of their most influencial songs, one of their most simple and relaxing songs and in my opinion one of their best songs!
