Smoke Break: Memorial Day Weekend Edition

I realize it's a cliche to live in Athens and be fanboyish about REM, but after losing me for a number of years, last year's "Accelerate" has rarely been off my iPod or out of my cd player. Here are two of my favorite songs. The first, "Until the Day is Done" is a poignant tune about loss and country.



Second, "Living Well is the Best Revenge" is the most foot-stomping song REM has done since "End of the World as We Know it" in the 80's, but check this video out: all-acoustic version driving around in a car here in Athens.



I want to be in that car!

Enjoy your long weekend (especially 3150 Maymester students...you guys deserve it).
