tunes i like tuesday: it happened today

There's just some things of which you never grow tired.  For me REM is one of them.  After 30 years of playing together and 15 albums, I love them as much as I did back in 1982 or so when I first heard them.  (God bless you, Martin.) Their new album, Collapse Into Now, is out March 8th.  Buy it.  Preorder it now.  The cuts I've heard so far are REM through and through.  

"It Happened Today" features Eddie Vedder of Pearl Jam fame.   Have a listen.  Is there a group that has stood the test of time for you?

Bonus trailer for the album....


  1. I knew you had great taste. I love REM! I've only seen them in concert once--10,000 maniacs opened for them!!! can't wait for the new album!
    thanks for sharing.

  2. REM...good times...good times. I was in high school/early college when they dropped those tremendous first few albums {can still play a few chords of Driver 8//South Central rain on the beat-up acoustic six string around the campfire-my kids think I wrote those songs BTW}. And, as a Ravens fan, today I got my spine and I got my Orange Crush!!
