Song of the Day: Everybody Hurts

October 30, 2009

It’s time for the second installment of Song of the Day!  This one comes courtesy of R.E.M.’s “Everybody Hurts”.  I heard this song on the radio yesterday and was reminded, first of all, of how great R.E.M. is, but also, that the video to this song was filmed in my hometown, San Antonio.  It was the biggest and most exciting news of the day when R.E.M. came to San Antonio, except when you watch the video, you realize that they chose it because of how utterly terrible the traffic actually is at that point in the city.  Nevertheless, it’s a brilliant song, a great video, and now, it’s the Song of the Day!

So, come on people, share your “Everybody Hurts” stories, R.E.M. memories, or tell me your personal song of the day.

    Ah, yes. I remember the ecstatic news reports when they were filming. Nice of REM to jam up traffic even more than usual.

    However, Austin Girl, once again my song of the day just doesn’t match up to yours. Mine is the first few bars of “Sunshine of Your Love”, mostly because that’s what plays in my head whenever something new, exciting, or epiphanic happens.

    Like the first time I saw the “Bedtime Stories” video by Madonna and I was all like ‘whoa’ and tingly and stuff. Or when someone gives you your first sip of alcohol and it’s like ‘Bah BANNNANanuh bah buh buh, buh bannnna!’
