TSURURADIO Presents… R.E.M. Live Not Live!!!

Photography “Live” by Ufuk KIRAY

Hey REM fans, don’t know if ya heard or not, but looks like REM is finally putting out a live album (took ’em long enough), apparently it’s a double disc & DVD. Now, I’ve been a fan of REM since Green came out and I played that record to the bone. If I remember correctly, “You Are The Everything”, “Orange Crush”, and “Inside Out” owned my young ass in them late 80’s (of course, the video for Pop Song ’89 helped (yay for boobies!!)…


Somehow or another, the band has crept along now for twenty-something years, and no, I’m not going to bitch about the band after Berry’s amicable leave, Reveal was beautiful (so underappreciated) and Around The Sun & Up had some amazing moments, so, uh, suck it… wah, wah, wah. lol. Anyway, the live release will have some uncommon live performances and a decent mix of old and new, so it will be nice to finally have a non-bootleg live recording of possibly one of the best American bands ever.

So, what have I got for you today? Well, this was fun… I took the playlist for the live release and grabbed all the songs from the discography, put them in order of the release, zipped it & loaded her up! Now, one change in the line up, I have yet to hear a decent version of “I’m Going To DJ” (track 21 on the release), so we skip that. To make up for it, I’ve added 3 unreleased b-side covers I love and have had (and enjoyed profusely) for forever.

Pretty cool, eh? Who loves you like I do? =) Alright my friends, it’s time to do this thing…
