    It was 1998 when I heard this song and immediately decided to leave my home and go my own way. I knew the time has come....

    There has to be some contractual agreement that keeps on placing The Sidewinder Sleeps Tonite on compiliations instead of Drive. Drive is obviously one of R.E.M.'s best songs.

    One of the best songs about young alienation ever made. The production of the whole record is fantastic and this opener just grabs you.

    Cor, remember when you got the vinyl copy of Automatic for the People, and you flipped the disc on to the turntable, and the needle gently dropped down, and then THIS song started? Think I held my breath throughout...
