REM – Nightswimming

I could comfortably posted another track from Rhythm of the saints (see yesterday) today. But I resolved at the start of the year not to post 2 tracks by the same artist until I had exhausted every one I liked. So my neurosis got the better of me as there are some many great bands still on my list.

Reading the interview with Michael Stipe a couple of weeks ago reminded me of REM. They are an amazing band. Their sheer production is staggering, with their latest album being number 15! Nightswimming was my favourite song on the first album I ever bought – Automatic for the people. I bought on cassette along with Return of the space cowboy by Jamiroquai. It is the first song I can remember really loving and playing it over and over on my walkman.
