    "Stand" and "Shiny Happy People," begone! I remember watching R.E.M. perform "Shiny Happy People" on Saturday Night Live when that album came out. My roommate Charlie, who was not familiar with R.E.M., walked in and started giggling uncontrollably. He assumed that Kate Pierson was the host that week, and this must be a skit. He laughed even harder when I told him it was a real song, and a Top 10 hit at that.

    Anyway, my votes:

    1b Daysleeper

    2b Man on the Moon

    3b Drive

    4a Orange Crush

    5a It's the End of the World as we Know it

    6a The Great Beyond

    7b The One I love

    8b Everybody hurts

    Apparently, should I ever have to make an R.E.M. playlist with Orual we won't have too much to argue about.

    Am I some sort of iconoclastic REM fan? None of my picks seem to win.
