One essay for each and every R.E.M. song

I thought my days of being interested in R.E.M. were over, but then Cho’nuff hipped me to a website by Matthew Perpetua, the dood who also does the MP3 blog FLUXBLOG. “Pop Songs 07” rocks my world in that it has one very simple goal: “…write a post about every song on every R.E.M. album, plus most of their major non-album tracks…”.

Anyone who’s known me for long enough is also aware that I was, at one point, one of the biggest R.E.M. geeks on the planet. And though my obsession for the group in its current incarnation has severely waned over the past two albums, my love and appreciation of their first 18 years is still as strong as ever.

If you are, or ever were, into R.E.M., do yourself a favor and dig around the Pop Songs 07 site. There’s some crazily insightful stuff being posted, even if it is just one person’s take on a great band’s body of work…
