R.E.M. wasted no time barely a year into the Nineties by writing and recording one of the songs which would come to define the decade, “Losing My Religion” from the album Out of Time . The band’s seventh overall but their first #1 seller in both the US and UK, it also contained the infectious”Shiny Happy People“, the tone poem “Low“, and the breezy “Near Wild Heaven” and “Texarkana“. Spend some quality time with R.E.M.’s Michael Stipe, Peter Buck, and Mike Mills here In the Studio  as my guests on the thirtieth anniversary of this triple Grammy Award winner the week of March 1. –Redbeard
