Radio 84, side A, track 7: “The One I Love” by R.E.M.

REM - The One I LoveOh, R.E.M., welcome back to the blog!  This is your first song I recorded off of BOB, just like this was the first of your songs I’d recorded ever.  This song will always have a special place in my heart, because this was the song that showed the internet how amazingly talented I am.  jk, R.E.M.  That I’m amazingly talented, that is, but for a few days in April of ’12, I did think I was a very big deal.  So I guess I became just like y’all for a brief moment.  The difference being, besides your pretentiousness, you actually are amazingly talented.  There are several songs of yours that I absolutely love that I never captured off the radio as a kid, so I hope this is a sign of more of your awesomeness to come.  Just don’t let it go to your head.
