A Tribute to R.E.M.
In honor of John Michael Stipe’s recent birthday (singer of R.E.M.), below is my tribute to the band:
Oh My Heart,
I Try not to Breathe.
It Happened Today,
A Bad Day for a Daysleeper.
The Final Straw for Life and how to Live it.
It’s the End of the World as we Know it, and I feel fine.
Laughing, The One I Love and Shiny Happy People Get Up and Stand for Hope.
They Talk About the Passion and The Great Beyond.
Losing my Religion, I turn to the Supernatural Superserious Man on the Moon,
“Fall on me,” he says. “Everybody Hurts, but Every Day is Yours to Win with All the Right Friends, in this Imitation of Life.”
Feel free to leave a comment if you can guess the number of song titles used in the above text.
