    I remember, when I was little, my mom had a DVD (video tape? I don't remember) with the music video of this song and she'd play it on the TV for me when I'd come home from school. It always made me happy after rough days. Listening to it now brings back so many good memories.

    When i was a child my Mother sent me to some weird Christian art and crafts group throughout the summer and for goodness knows what reason we had to sit in the pews of the church in the morning - which had a large pull down screen for projecting videos on - and they'd play this song. EVERY MORNING. I feel like this can't be real and it's some sort of disturbing pseudo memory. I still love the song though.

    I love how most of the people in this shoutbox represent exactly what this song is satirizing.

    Don't know why REM hated this song so much, pleasant change from their usual whiny crap. Maybe that's why.

    The title and chorus are based on a Chinese propaganda poster. The slogan "Shiny happy people holding hands" is used ironically after the killings in Tiananmen Square. Good tune.

    It's such a shame that this song started off as pro-whaling propaganda... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M2IoH7zgVs4 shame on you R.E.M.

    people say it's rubbish, garbage etc.. I agree it's not the best, it gets boring pretty quickly, but when you hear it after a few months of not hearing it, those jangly guitar riffs WILL PUT AN INSTANT SMILE ONTO YOUR MISERABLE FACES!
