That is the first time I have heard that song by R.E.M. Malcolm. Quite enjoyed it. Nice find.

I don't go in for pop, what does R.E.M stand for?


the band selected several names in the start of their career;  "Twisted Kites", "Cans of Piss", and "Negro Wives", the band settled on "R.E.M." (which stands for the stage of sleep called rapid eye movement), which Stipe selected at random from a dictionary.

Not sure if they ever explained why they wanted 'rapid eye movement' - pop groups have always been weird!

I think one of them was deaf and he saw the term "Real Ear Measurement" at his audiologist.
