23 E-Bow the Letter

Featuring Patti Smith, which was a major influence for them.
I was lucky enough to see them live twice in 1999 (yes, I'm that old), including one show in Paris where Patti Smith was the opening guest. I can't find the right adjectives to describe it, but one thing is for sure, I will never forget (and her voice gave me goose bumps). - Lotuscandy

34 Radio Song

The song sample is wrong (it's a french band).
The samples for Suspicion, Tongue and Bad Day are wrong too. I reported the errors.
Edit: Nice, the errors were corrected and the samples are now ok. - Lotuscandy

44 Shiny Happy People

Featuring Kate Pierson (from The B-52's), whom I also like very much, fun song, but definitely not their best. I don't understand why Country Feedback wasn't released as a single.
Despite the song's success, band members were ambivalent about being known for a pop song that lacked gravitas. "It's a fruity pop song written for children. It just is what it is", Stipe told the BBC's Andrew Marr in 2016. "If there was one song that was sent into outer space to represent R.E.M. for the rest of time, I would not want it to be Shiny Happy People".
I think I prefer the version they performed on Sesame Street (Furry Happy Monsters)! - Lotuscandy
