Best R.E.M. Songscrazyeyes56

The back story to this is sadder than the song itself. The day before Kurt Cobain died he was supposed to be picked up to go to Atlanta for a recording session with Stipe. As the story goes Michael Stipe sent a limo to pick him up. The Driver waited for him and knocked on the door and no one answered. Hence the title let me in.
A classic of alternative cool. Paradramtic and textured in tone, mood and ambiance. A yearning between youth and adulthood and all of the grey abysses between.
Underrated song. Should be in top 10V 2 Comments
It may be new, but it is so badass - crazyeyes56
Amazinhg song, powerful, awesome lyrics and music. It is surely one of the best songs of this wonderful band
Right from that raw intro the song blisters along like a happy runaway train. They're enjoying themselves on this. Irresistable!V 1 Comment
Reminds me of the love of my life. So yes, HUGE sentimental value and an equally haunting tune.
Love this melancholic song. Favorite line: "It's easier to leave than to be left behind"
Very nice song some good lines in there -
The best chorus. So good.
REM are my all time favourite band. This is the first REM song I ever heard and I'd have to say it's still my favourite. I love to listen to it whilst driving late at night. They have at least a 100 great songs.
This is my number 1 REM song and REM are my favourite band. I love to listen to it whilst driving alone at nightV 1 Comment
Whoever voted for this one - well done. I already put Supernatural... but this would be my second choice. The siren is awesome on it and gives the track a panicky feeling. Brilliant.
Best Lyrics ever written by R.E.M.
One of the best R.E.M. song, my favorite one, associating great music with incredible lyrics, simply fantastic.
I love the guitar solo on the version from R.E.M. 's Road Movie sound track.
Not just REM's best, one of the best songs ever written.
Another great REM song...
Makes my days good...
Greatest song ever
I could listen to this song 8000 times and never get tired of it. Great song - CrowdedChisel
R. E. M. nailed a love song. Who'd'a thought?
There are plenty of great tracks to vote for, buy I feel like this one should be higher. It's just simply great to listen to.
A difficult song, but with a very nice passage. "When the light is mine":
