There’s another thread about noticing things in songs, ages after you first heard them. That made me think of this. Are there any songs that you didn’t ‘get’ for a long time?
For me, there are a few. Diminished stands out. Up was my favourite album from around the time of the Up tour. But that was a song that I never really liked (or didn’t like) for a long time. It was probably the mid-noughties when I began to appreciate it. It’s now one of my favourite songs on my favourite album.
You from Monster is another.
I’ve always thought that the best R.E.M. albums/songs were the ‘growers’. What songs grew on you?
