They say slow dancing is a vertical expression of an horizontal intention. I guess no truer thing has been said, and two of my go-to songs (for slow dancing off course!!!) happen to be from R.E.M.
Strange Currencies, taken off the album Monster, was released in 1995. The official music video features Samantha Mathis who was River Phoenix’s girlfriend (and was present) at the time of his death in the Viper Room.
E-Bow The Letter, taken off the album New Adventures In Hi-Fi, was released 1996. The song features backing vocals by Patti Smith, the Godmother of Punk. Lead singer Michael Stipe acknowledges Patti as a great source of inspiration.
And oh! Happy birthday today to bassist Mike Mills.
