So we're still saying goodbye to R.E.M. As a further method of coping, both Liz and I have compiled our 10 favorite R.E.M. songs, some known, some unknown, some from albums you may not own if you're pretty sure they stopped recording with Automatic (spoiler: they didn't!). Additionally, if you're in New York we'd love to have you come raise a glass and shout THAT'S GREAT IT STARTS WITH AN EARTHQUAKE etc etc along with us when I DJ this R.E.M. tribute night on Thursday in Greenpoint.
The Facebook RSVP is here, where you can leave song requests. We'd love to see you/sing/cry with you.
For now, though, let's take a look at the living document of R.E.M. masterpieces, as selected by Liz and myself.
