My Favourite R.E.M. songs (Part 1)

September 25, 2011

It’s exceptionally hard to narrow down my favourite R.E.M. songs into a top ten so I’ve decided to list my favourite top 3 songs from each album:

Chronic Town

R.E.M.’s first EP and it is a catchy predecessor to Murmur, featuring five songs that show off the wonderfully tight rhythm section of Berry and Mills, the jangly guitar of Buck and the mumbled vocals of Stipe.

  1. Stumble
  2. Carnival of Sorts (Box Car)
  3. Gardening at Night


  1. Pilgrimage
  2. Catapult
  3. Laughing


  1. Harbourcoat
  2. Letter Never Sent
  3. South Central Rain (I’m Sorry)

Fables of the Reconstruction

  1. Maps and Legends
  2. Driver 8
  3. Life and How to Live It

Lifes Rich Pageant

  1. These Days
  2. Swan Swan H
  3. I Believe


  1. Exhuming McCarthy
  2. Strange
  3. Lightnin’ Hopkins
