Decide yourself if radio's gonna stay
Reason: it could polish up the gray
Put that, put that, put that up your wall
That this isn't Country at all

Radio station: decide yourself

Keep me out of Country and the word
Wheel of fortune's leading us: absurd
Push that, push that, push that to the floor
That this isn't nothing at all

Straight off the boat, where to go

Calling out in transit
Calling out in transit
Radio Free Europe (radio)

Decide: defy the media too fast
Instead of pushing palaces to fall
Put that, put that, put that up your wall
That this isn't fortunate at all

Radio station: decide yourself

We're calling out in transit
Calling out in transit
Radio Free Europe (radio)

Decide yourself: come in on a boat
Media's too fast
Keep me out of Country and the word
Disappointment into us: absurd

Straight off the boat, where to go?

Fresh new vibe arrived with REM. The evolution of Power Pop with a nod to Pete Townshend who coined the term in 1967 describing music of The Who.

I'm not sure Stipe ever knew them either.

saving my 10 vote for the first 45 version.  When Stuart Cauley played it for me on my turntable it changed my life

This came out in the 80's. It was then referred to as College Rock. Prog rock is a whole different thing. Procul Harum, Emerson, Lake and Palmer, Yes and later  Peter Gabriel's version of Genesis and  eventually Rush. Artsier, more musically technical rock made by music geeks (I say that as a compliment). Bill plays Porcupine Tree which feels to me like a continuation of prog rock. 
great album - rockin' tune to clean by!

I don't remember much about the night except that REM were as good as expected.

At Rice University in 1984. Read about REM in the weekend paper. Bought Murmur and Reckoning that night. Walked in off the street and caught their show at Numbers a couple of days later. Awesome! By the time the next tour rolled through, they'd made it and you had to buy tickets ahead of the show! How inconvenient.
Whack up the volume - time to rock!

I remember it vividly.  REM, and Radio Free Europe especially since it was their intro to the mainstream, was a breath of fresh air after the disco-new wave-synth rock phase that seemed interminably long.

Oh no. Bon Jovi was/is a joke band. Longevity is there key to success. REM was a pretty good band. Michael is probably alot more fun to talk with than the bubble head seated next to him.    
Absolutely great bass guitar on this one.
Wait. Those are the real lyrics? I never knew.
An odd transition from While My Guitar Gently Weeps to Radio Free Europe, but I obviously like both songs....
a sophisticated person would never trash another person's work so you can wash away that pronouncement too.

Ann Lucas passed away February 6, 2012, at University of Utah Medical Center, at age 55 due to a subdural hematoma, which required surgery. She was put on life support, but after three days without signs of improvement, her family made the difficult decision to discontinue life support and donate her organs on the 6th.

Ann was born on Oct. 12, 1956, in Twin Falls, Idaho, to Buss and Dorothy Stepp, who encouraged her to follow her dreams. One dream was to become a published author, which she achieved in 2010 with her novel "Life-Dance". She also wrote fan fiction for the television show "La Femme Nikita".

Ann was also a freelance correspondent for the "Elko Independent" newspaper and had a recurring column called "Shaking the Tree", as well as writing articles for "Elko Daily Free Press".


if Stipe dosn't want us to hear the lyrics why don't they just do intrumentals
    Watch out!  Radio Free Europe is hyperventilating.
Praise the child, knowing where to spent all that money.
A bit of REM never fails to hit the spot.  Just turn it up a notch or two to get the effect. Cleverly followed today by the Arctic Monkeys (Fireside), which demonstrates their relevance today.  Thanks RP.

Here's another case where it couldn't just stop at "I don't like it."  The addition of "...because I have musical taste and erudition" or other things like "because I'm so smart" just kind of baffles me.  Why is "I don't like it" not sufficient?  Is it because the non-fan thinks that otherwise they're somehow lacking, due to the (in this case) 7.8 rating?

"Do you think he's compensating for something?"

Some people would say a song like, oh, "Everything is Broken" by Dylan is doo-doo (Even old-school Dylan fans) while some give it a 10.    Maybe you could say "to me its doo-doo", or just, "I really hate that song"...   It's all a matter of opinion...

There's just no accounting for musical appreciation. For instance, I'm amazed that someone with your self-proclaimed "musical taste and erudition" would give "Turning Japanese" a 10 (Godlike). Another "hormonal upwelling"?

Of course REM is pop music. Aside from the classical and jazz pieces nearly everything played on RP is pop music. I attribute my enjoyment of REM to having grown up in the 60s, when pop music was heard on AM radio over crappy speakers and had to evoke a visceral reaction or never stay on the charts. Words? Who could make them out? In that respect REM is no different than the Strawberry Alarm Clock. It either hits you in the animal pleasure center of your brain or it doesn't..

We explode into that chaotic dance of freedom that you feel when you're in your twenties, life is f-in fantastic, and everything's ahead of you.
I was so lucky to have that experience, and the image of Bob M flailing about in wild abandon as we sing CALLING ALL IN TRANSIT...it's one of the great moments in my timeline. 

 

I've heard this hundreds of times since college, and it just sailed by my memory until now...I think I just had a flashback- thanks!

R.E.M.'s music was refreshing back at the beginning, and it WASN'T playing on any car or home or portable radios until several years after their debut EP, "Chronic Town", came out in '82. 

We liked 'em, and we had 'em all to ourselves.

Thank you for sharing that (rather self righteous) bit of wank. We all feel properly demeaned by your obvious excellence and superiority. 
Such a landmark.
Ignore the crap from the WB years. This fresh explosion of something different... Man. You don't get that often in a lifetime: things change. And this was a harbinger of that.

I don't have a need to defend REM or their music even though geographically, one would think I have a strong propensity to do so. What I thought was a nice anecdotal tale on your behalf turned into a self-righteous diatribe. The sands of time haven't completely washed away the doo-doo.

One of my favorite songs, I just read the lyrics for the first time.  I always thought he was singing "calling out in the trenches".  Point being I really do not give a fuck about song lyrics and "meaning".
I am not making this up: 

As I was clicking on Radio Paradise in iTunes, Radio Free Europe was going through my head. And here it is. 

I don't know how you did it, Bill, but that was really cool.

here is a case in which there is a good reason my post makes no sense...the cover art has been changed from the Eponymous CD...a lot of times things change on the board, esp when others delete the post I was responding to...
Umm, I meant "put", not "push".  Still brilliant.
It's still an awesome song, but demmed if I know what "calling out in transit" really means.  You gotta love the energy within those lyrics, like the threefold repetition of "push".  Brilliant.
Thus is one of the best songs I can imagine. It has some sort of redeeming lyrics I understand. Early '80s in Europe, communism right next door.  
Thus is one of the worst songs I can imagine. Does it have some sort of redeeming lyrics I can not understand. Mumble, mumble.

Great tune, IMO! 

First appeared on Murmur in 1983.  Quite frankly, the entire album is awesome.  Produced by the legendary Mitch Easter and Don Dixon at Reflection Studios in Charlotte, NC.



My favorite 'drum break' of all time! 
This song still sounds as fresh and exciting as the day it was recorded, even after hearing it hundreds of times over the decades. Gotta go with a 10 on this one.

Scott:

Heard a story about this song on the CBC the other day. The announcer said that Stipe's lyrics are intentionally incomprehensible. When he recorded the song he just strung together a bunch of stuff that he made up on the spot. When he sang live, he often changed the lyrics, but nobody knew because nobody knew what the actual lyrics were! The CBC announcer also that this was the song that changed the musical landscape, ushering in the era of "indie" rock. (That's debatable, I'm sure.) 

Best wishes.

A great old REM track originally from their first full-length Album - Murmur.
Back when this song was new, a friend's cover band performed it — but he had to learn some of the lyrics phonetically, because nobody could understand them and there was no lyric sheet. ;-)
