I can’t thank you enough for all that you’ve meant to me. Your music is inspiring, memorizing and fun. I am blessed to have come of age with R.E.M. You helped me through my teen years, my uncle’s suicide, you helped introduce me to my future husband and you gave my heart so much joy.
Enjoy whatever comes next. You deserve it.
My favorite R.E.M. song is “Find the River.” I expect my children to find a way to ensure this song is displayed as I’m being buried – no matter what the priest has to say about it. I changed their diapers. They owe me this!
And here’s the video to “What’s the Frequency, Kenneth?” just because it’s my favorite. I never loved Michael Stipe as much as I did in this video.
