Some people are just awesome. Do you remember when Rain Phoenix sang backup vocals on the R.E.M. album “Monster?” She sang on the track “Bang and Blame” and if you’ll recall, “Monster” was dedicated to the late River Phoenix. Well, that was 1994, an eternity in the music (or any other pop culture) industry. Seriously, we’re all getting old.
Look what landed in my inbox the other day, featured as one of “Under the Radar’s” top ten songs of the week: Michael Stipe returning the favour. Such a simple song. So good. I leave this here for you without further comment, save this one, last word: perfect.
