@remfan: Yeah, I couldn't imagine anybody but besides Michael Stipe telling this story with this music.
Michael Stipe rules!
Perfect voice for this track.
very good cover. I love Michael Stipe's voice
after a while, i found the context - now it makes all sense - thanks
"The same year, he’s also been invited to record a song (L’hotel) for the tribute album to Serge Gainsbourg called Monsieur Gainsbourg." - from the write up on Michael Stipe's profile...
I think this song is a rip-off of an old Serge Gainsbourgh one - from Melody Nelson ... sounds very familiar!
