I don’t need no persuading
I’ll trip, fall, pick myself up and walk unafraid
So it’s the end of REM as they call it a day and my wish to attend their concert standing right at the centre watching them perform live ends with it.
If you love alternative rock then I don’t have a doubt you love REM. A music with perfect and intoxicating mix of melody, harmony & Originality. What they created was something real and deep, something that transcends everything. A band which focused just on one thing-MUSIC
“To our Fans and Friends: As R.E.M.,and as lifelong friends and co-conspirators, we have decided to call it a day as a band. We walk away with a great sense of gratitude, of finality, and of astonishment at all we have accomplished. To anyone who ever felt touched by our music, our deepest thanks for listening.” R.E.M.

Here are my five favorite R.E.M. songs.
1. Everybody Hurts
3. The Sidewinder Sleeps Tonight
4. Losing my religion
5. Walk Unafraid
