Some very, very sad news in the music world. That is after 31 years R.E.M. have broken up :(. I would say they are one of my all time favourite bands. I have now less then 13 of there albums and 4 of there DVDs. I could at first not believe it, when I read it on the BBC news website. They have been around since 1980, so the year after I was born. So they have been a big part of much of my life. They will be very, very much missed.
Is you are are R.E.M. fan you may wait to check out Absolute Radio 90s this Sunday, since they are having a R.E.M. day.
In other news, I got my very first Birthday card today. So very, very big thanks to Mark! I can’t believe this time next week, I will be 32.
I will leave you with my all time favourite R.E.M. song. Which is Everybody Hurts.
Oh sorry just one more thing, I would love to hear what your favourite R.E.M. song is and why.
It goes back a while but I love REM Unplugged – Fall On Me – Pure Genius – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sRUKoS4scU4
That one goes to show they are still lots of R.E.M. songs that I have ever heard of. I had to google it, to check it was a real one. So big thanks for telling me about it!
Yes, rather sad that R.E.M have decided to call it a day… I quite like Shiny Happy People, and have played it, in tribute three times in succession!
