They're shiny, happy people, as far as I'm concerned, and probably holding hands. :pp: :doh: :D

Don't know much more of their ouvre than that though, sorry. :oops:

Actually no, Losing My Religion is another one I like. Couldn't give you an album track, though.

I like their old stuff, pre 1991.

Fables of the Reconstruction and Document are good albums :thumb:

Bit hit and miss for me. Some of their stuff is OK but I found they used illogical chord changes for what seemed to be no apparent reason. I was really irritated by "What's the frequency, Kenneth" a few years back too as the B side was the same feckin song with no vocals. That stinks of "in it for the money" which makes me wanna puke, no matter who the band is. Apart from that, they're tolerable :D

Yes, another good one. Problem with Everybody Hurts is that it was played to death at the time of its release (and after, with telethons like Children In Need loving it!) which does have an effect on you connecting as much with it after a while.

I love REM (apart from Monster - that sucked). They feature regularly on my playlists.

Pleased to hear they got shot of the original 'screecher'. :D

How Berry sticks around with the numpties is anyone's guess, must be that monthly paycheque from the label.
