R.E.M.-“It’s the End of the World as We Know It (And I Feel Fine)-1987

With all the Doomsday predictions for tomorrow (May 21, 2011) I can think of no better way to spend my last moments on Earth than listening to Michael Stipe’s pleasantly haunting croons. Well ok. I can think of hundreds of ways to better spend my last moments on Earth but this is still a great song. It is classic R.E.M. and really shows their hard rock roots. We all know the “folky” R.E.M. with songs like “The One I Love”, “Everybody Hurts” and “Shiny Happy People” This is “rocky” R.E.M. and is my favorite R.E.M. song after “Orange Crush.”
