R.E.M. tributes/parodies

this is a thread for original, non-r.e.m. songs written in the style of r.e.m. or about r.e.m.

no covers!

there are a lot. some are comedic, but all are done lovingly. i can think of a few right now…


“and that R.E.M. song was playing in my mind / three and a half minutes felt like a lifetime”:

(the songwriter revealed much later he was thinking of “Perfect Circle”, which is indeed 3½ minutes.)
