Waking from my R.E.M. slumber

Back in the late 80's, early 90's, before things like iPods and filesharing and streaming and all of the ways we enjoy music these days, I had a stack of R.E.M. CD's (compact discs for anyone born in the 90's) on top of my living room player and one or two in the car at all times. For whatever reason, I lost interest after 1992's "Automatic for the People."

The R.E.M. song that plays in my head at random times is "(Don't Go Back To) Rockville"

Michael and the boys are back with "Accelerate", being released next week, but you can stream the entire album for free here.

And be sure to watch them perform on the plaza outside The Today Show studio Tuesday morning, April 1.
