    Makes sense, seeing as REM is from Georgia...

    I'm not a rock fan, and I'd never heard of R.E.M. (I presume that's the name of the band.) But I like the song.

    You are right, they are a band. A very good band who makes songs nobody can understand a lick of what they mean. The thread is named after one of their biggest hits:

    I don't much care for that one. But like I said, I'm not a fan of rock music. FWIW, I completely disagree with the lyrics of my favorite music genre (sacred music of the Baroque and earlier). Fortunately, it's mostly in Latin, so I can more or less ignore the words.

    The OP could have titled this thread "Loosing My Religion" and it would have been similar to many others on this forum.

    This is why I love Daniel. He lumps Metallica and Abba in the same genre.

    LOL, they are sort of similar. Both bands are of foreign origins, Los Angeles and Stockhom. ;)

    I love R.E.M.

    I think we've seen enough of people loosing their religion on others. As in 'letting it loose' or 'who let the dogs out?', for the grammatically challenged among us. ;)

    As far as 'rock' music goes, REM is fairly subdued and introspective. You should try listening to more - you might like it. Stay away from Metallica. And ABBA. :)

    Who? I have no idea who they are. I know who Jimmy Hendrix is (don't like his music) and the Beatles (they did some very nice songs).

    I like Mac Rebennack (aka Dr. John, the night-tripper), but that's not rock in my book. More sort of R&B Bayou style. I like 1930's jazz, and boogie woogie. A lot of rock just sounds like banging on pots and pans. It's got to have a tune to be music, and polyphony is better yet. Syncopation is also good. I like the traditional musics of most cultures. Oh, and Motown was good. Not great, but nice.

    Daniel is travelling tonight on a plane
    I can see the red tail lights heading for Spain
    Oh and I can see Daniel waving goodbye
    God it looks like Daniel, must be the clouds in my eyes
    They say Spain is pretty though I've never been
    Well Daniel says it's the best place that he's ever seen
    Oh and he should know, he's been there enough
    Lord I miss Daniel, oh I miss him so much
    Daniel my brother you are older than me
    Do you still feel the pain of the scars that won't heal
    Your eyes have died but you see more than I
    Daniel you're a star in the face of the sky
    Daniel is travelling tonight on a plane
    I can see the red tail lights heading for Spain
    Oh and I can see Daniel waving goodbye
    God it looks like Daniel, must be the clouds in my eyes

    Correction: Spain has some nice places (Seville in summer, Barcelona, the coast of Galicia) but the best place I've ever seen is southeastern British Columbia, especially the Selkirk mountains. The reason I chose Spokane to live in is because it's driving distance from B.C. They were not joking when they put "Beautiful British Columbia" on their license plates.

    I'm slightly surprised Daniel knows who The Beatles are. Maybe I should link to something from that obscure indy band, The Rolling Stones, so he can learn about them, too.

    Daniel, I think our romance is over. [IMG]

    I don't think I could live without a wide range of music, including Rock.

    We can still be friends, though. It isn't you, it's... um, you. :rolleyes:

    Poor Daniel, he's probably heard this more than a few times in his life. :(

    Althought I bet it's the first time he's heard it on PriusChat!
