Song of the Day - REM, Everybody Hurts  
Daily song of the day. I don't know, maybe I should do this weekly? I dunno. No responses for yesterday's pick. Come on, guys, let me know ... should I continue doing this? Make it weekly? Or just drop it.

Anyhoo, today it's REM's "Everybody Hurts," this is one of my favorite songs of all time (and in my top ten favorite videos of all time). It breaks my heart, but lifts me up at the same time. It's so damn true, and so inspiring to just ... hold on.

I love Michael Stipe's voice - I've been listening to my REM playlist on repeat for the last couple of days. ('Hope' is a very Sheldon song) Serious fan of the 'Automatic for the People' and 'New Adventures' era.

I adore R.E.M. -- I've been to very few concerts in my life, and they were my first "real" concert (Indigo Girls at a local college auditorium didn't count, LOL ;p )

I feel like "Everybody Hurts" got overplayed, back in the day, but it is a truly lovely song. I could listen to that album all the way through (with the exception of Sidewinder Sleeps Tonight). But I think every other song on there ended up on a mix tape of mine at some point. ;)

Definitely an all-time favorite. It's such a beautiful song and listening to it really does hurt. So good!
