What have you told us at all?
Make a sound, come down off the wall.
Religion, should appeal to the hearts of the young.
Who are you? what have you become?
You animal.
Come on.
What does this remind you of?
Truly.
Truly we have become.
Hated and feared for something we don't want.
Listen.
Listen.
Most of us believe that this is wrong.
You animal.
Come on.

Come on.

The stylish way of getting dog crap off your shoes
Really great song, both lyics and music. I can imagine playing that lead and then picking up the solo, but it could never be so beautiful.

Jim James is gushing with creativity and talent.

I like this, and just about everything RP plays.  My appreciation for music has increased.  Thanks Bill & Rebecca for keeping indie & eclectic dj driven radio out of corporate hands.
Keep rocking in the free world!
Only 7 to me
Going down to 3

Here is how it might have happened... one day Kathleen Lolley was reading the nursery rhyme "Four and Twenty Blackbirds baked in a pie" while her partner slipped a tab of LSD into her cup of coffee.  All of a sudden things started to become much clearer and so she got out her pen and inks and started to revise the story for the modern day.

Seems logical to me :) 
 
Perhaps, but many visual artists don't need hallucinogenics, they usually see the world that way without chemical enhancement.  That's why they draw and paint.
really great song) i like it very much) 
likeable
My favorite song from MMJ. Can't really get into their other stuff.
With great difficulty and facing many dangers, a city bird escapes to the wilderness, where it falls ill and is rescued by a team of physicians, who cut it open to find that in spite of its arduous journey and great distance traveled, within it beats the heart of a city...

Most of their catalogue is hollow. Like early Allman's but devoid of  soul, recorded with echo effects in a mineshaft. Airless.
This one is different. It really soars. 
I have to agree that it's one of the most intriguing — and absolutely one of the trippiest — examples of cover art ever. When it first came out, I scanned it, printed it bigger, put it on my wall in my place in Tokyo...and every person who saw it said it was "disturbing..."
Awesome band!

Yes, it is; it looks like the work of Kathleen Lolley - an artist who does some very intriguing work.
love this. still.

Godlike!... love this tune.

Hmmm...  they're both (at least partially) live recordings.  Other than that I'd have to say "in every respect" :-)
Turned up the volume for the preceding Robert Plant song, and I shall keep the volume up.  Good tune.
and this is different from the Rattle & Hum period of U2 how?
Screw the haters- I always loved this!
Don't know why, but I find this band pretty annoying and very samey. Not doing it at all for me.
Giddeyup - and away to PSD. Clippety-clop, clippety-clop...
Fantabulous musical energy. I can hardly ever grasp a freaking word he sings.

Man it sure sounds like it.  Working at my desk with this turned down all I hear is this echoey, "Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhooooooooooo!!!!" coming from my computer

Nice!
Oh, my giddy aunt! TFFPSD

Volume is wayyyy up...  everybody in my church is singing along with this beautiful song...
 

Everybody in my church demanded that I turn up the volume...  the walls are shaking...

Everybody in my church loves this song...

I love this band's energy. Song after song is a treat. But I am somewhat put off by the singer. In live cuts, especially, cannot he not vocalize the lyrics intelligibly? Is it the audio mix? A lazy voice? Sedatives? I hardly hear the English half the time, instead just a muddy mumble. 
The drumbeat at the beginning just gets to me, it grabs me. And this song just gets better from there. 
Oh, my giddy aunt! TFF PSD to stay awake
Love this song, this album, this band!!! {#Cheers}

This song is downright dazzling...  always love to hear it...

Up here, we're bracing for a snowstorm that may or may not show up. All the kitters are indoors - I'm such a mother-hen... Glad to have RadioParadise as a companion!

 
Miss you so much, Ann...

 Most excellent song. Fabulous album cover. Another one to add to the list of wants.


yessss...  love this song soooo much...

 
Exactly the same here! I usually have to hear something a few times to really know if it's worth that extra numerical bump!   {#Cheers}

Almost makes me think that going to Vegas wouldn't suck.  However, I hate hot weather, crowds, stinging insects, biting reptiles, flashy and gaudy storefronts, ostentatious displays of wealth, and dust.

I'm not a big fan of gambling, lack of green on the ground, or tourists either. 

Yeah, I don't get out west much and I'm ok with that.

Dreamy. Incredible song.



marvelous...
 

Frickin Amazing shows. One of the best touring bands out there today. And besides all that, they make me dance.
Great song live, too...just saw them in D.C. at Merriweather Post Pavilion recently. Love MMJ!
First MMJ song I ever heard. Still good.
Very nice indeed!

Yes, Radio Paradise is the best radio station in the history of human life on Earth...  I never imagined a radio station could be this good...

and I love this song...  it builds up beautifully to a climax...

"Z" is an absolutely outstanding album.  A++
One of my hypothetical "deserted Island" cds.  It astounds me that more of this album hasn't made it into the playlist.  "Off the Record" and "Dondonte" are particular favorites of mine. 

If I ever learn to code in flash, I have a perfect video idea for Dondonte that the wife and I came up with one night while jamming to this cd and enjoying some smoke...
Saw MMJ in concert this past Sunday. Fantastic. Kentucky represent!
best thing these guys have done. this really works...

You've commented 24 times on how you like this song. Luckily, you can only give each song only 1 ten rating. You totally skew the data here bro.

Are you sure you really like it? It seems every other post on an REM song is you. I'd say you need to get out of Vegas more often.{#Nyah}
 


Well, I do like this song... and yes, I need to get out of Vegas more often...  I want an airplane...  sigh...

Wimpy, boring, can't stand the guys voice. That bout sums it up.

Good tune and the cover art by Kathleen Lolley is wonderful!

BEST. BAND. EVER. Who saw the recent Live on Letterman online concert? They were really good in the Ed Sullivan Theater.
 
A friend of mine is a producer for David Letterman and she gave me tickets to see the show at the Ed Sullivan theatre and it was simply superb.  What an amazing band.  Furthermore, I was able to see them shortly afterwards at Terminal 5 in NYC and that show was equally as good.

I can handle caterwauling all day long.  It's the off-key caterwauling that makes me hit the mute button.

The live version from Okonokos is even better.  I'm not a huge MMJ fan, but the DVD has a fantastic vibe to it — it feels like you're sitting outdoors on a beautiful summer night, listening.
LOVE this song !!!  {#Bounce}


I love the way the song peaks at the end when he wails...  awesome...
