    What a song...what a chorus. I remember when I saw them in London in 1999 and they played this song before it was released and from that instant, it was a favorite of mine. Stunning.

    "I'm pushing an elephant up the stairs".. yeah, that's how I feel most of the time as well.

    Nothing to do with this REM track which is of course sublime, but how much does everyone ABSOLUTELY HATE these Forza Horizon adverts and trailers that keep cropping up on LastFM over the last few weeks? A parade of morons bellowing nonsense to a baying crowd of dimwits. When will it be gone?

    Anything beyond? Lyrics make little sense, unsurprisingly, but it sounds good

    Michael Stipe totally agrees with Selimteh concerning Shiny Happy People, as he stated he would never play it at a concert. This song really good though.

    Smiley happy people must be the worst track ever,but I like this.

    I do like a lot of REM songs and this one is simply amazing. Might even be their best. :)

    My grandmother floated up out of her coffin and started waving her hands in the air when we played this at her funeral. Good song.

    There's probably nobody else around that creates music that is this relaxing or thought provoking.

    I'm pushing an elephant up the stairs. I'm tossing up punchlines that were never there. Over my shoulder piano falls, crashing to the ground.

    I love this song madly. "Keeping flowers in full bloom" really hits home for me.

    fun album... buy it with money, don't be like me & take it from a friend who likes to burn things... death to the internets, etc.

    Songs with surreal lyrics are sometimes difficult to understand, but these are presented in a perfect fashion. I've always liked R.E.M, and I think it's mainly because of the song writing; surreal or otherwise.
