    I love how in the cassette booklet its the only song whose lyrics are in it. [2] WOW I had completely forgotten that!

    The chorus of Love Will Tear Us Apart keeps playing in my head every time the piano kicks in. I can't say I don't like it, though.

    Due to a serious Zeppelin addiction at the time Green was released, I didn't give it a proper listen and dismissed it as crap. I was wrong.

    I love this song so much, lyrically it's my favorite R.E.M. song. I love how in the cassette booklet its the only song whose lyrics are in it.

    This is my mistake. Let me make it good... I raised the wall and I will be the one to knock it down...

    So much better than "Losing my religion" (which is similar).

    wow thi ssong sucks for so many reasons it s rare that a song is so consistently bad .the lyrics are embarassingly stupid (even for masters of the trite, REM) and the arrangement is just childish
