I am listening to their music for nearly 30 years. And this song is my absolute favourite REM-Song.

This is actually my favorite R.E.M. song. Very underrated.

22 Daysleeper Daysleeper

Very nice song some good lines in there -

The best chorus. So good.

23 Supernatural Superserious Supernatural Superserious

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!

24 Superman Superman

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 10

26 Leaving New York Leaving New York

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"

27 You Are the Everything You Are the Everything

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 night

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.

29 Country Feedback Country Feedback

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.

30 Bad Day Bad Day

Another great REM song...

Makes my days good...

31 King of Comedy King of Comedy
32 King of Birds King of Birds

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?

37 Life and How to Live It Life and How to Live It
38 Can't Get There From Here Can't Get There From Here
39 Me in Honey Me in Honey
40 The Sidewinder Sleeps Tonite The Sidewinder Sleeps Tonite

Needs to be much higher love this song

Remember this one from my teenage years. Never really understood what it meant, but loved it just the same.

Great song I agree should be higher on the list

One of the most joyful songs I've ever heard!
