I voted "Talk About The Passion" 'cos it's a tune I learned to play on my guitar.
I love "Stand" also, I can still remember the dance moves from the video  ;D.

ALL OF THE ABOVE!!! I especially love the original single for "Radio Free Europe" (which is on Eponymous and I'm desperately trying to find the single itself on eBay - GOOD LUCK!). It's better than the version that was done for Murmur.

By the way...it's "Finest Worksong," not "Finest Worshop." :)

Lots of nice songs here, talk about the passion, gardening at night, South central rain, etc. I liked them best in the early 80s and saw them at Univ of Colorado in '84. Michael Stipe still had a lot of hair and a tough guy attitude. IMHO he was/is a jerk.

I'm glad you only chose two albums.  It makes choosing favorites much easier. ;)

From Green - "You Are The Everything".  One of my all-time favorite of theirs.
From Eponymous - "Fall On Me"

Everybody Hurts

"Everybody Hurts" is a 90s song, mandamoo.

Anyway, here are my favorite REM songs from the 80's (in no particular orger):
The One I Love
Fall On Me
Orange Crush
Stand (and Weird Al's parody, "Spam", which is about the lunchmeat) ;D
It's The End Of The World As We Know It
South Central Rain

Man On The Moon came out in 1992, but that is a great song nonetheless.  :)

Orange Crush

Subject: Re: REM '80's Song Poll

Written By: Sean1983 on 01/19/07 at 6:04 am

I'm gonna go with:

Radio Free Europe (original version)
Wolves, Lower
Stumble
Feeling Gravitys Pull
9-9
Sitting Still
World Leader Pretend
Welcome To The Occupation
Oddfellow's Local 151
King Of Birds
Harborcoat
So. Central Rain
Get Up
Orange Crush
Pop Song 89 (have fond memories of this one because I performed it in a high school talent show with my brother about six years ago)
Can't Get There From Here
Maps And Legends
Begin The Begin
These Days
Fall On Me

R.E.M. is one of those bands that put out solid albums year after year (not so much anymore, but anyway).  The mark of a great album is when the non-singles arguably outshine the singles and R.E.M. managed to constantly create great albums in the 80's and 90's.  I like Fables Of The Reconstruction best of their 80's albums and probably Automatic For The People from their 90's output.
