How did I not notice this until just now, 12 years after R.E.M. retired as a band?
The first song on three consecutive R.E.M. albums includes the word “song” in the title. It can’t be a coincidence! It also can’t mean much other than just being a goofy little thing, so probably not worthy of a Dan Brown novel (what happened to him, anyway?)
- Finest Worksong (Document, 1987)
- Pop Song 89 (Green, 1988)
- Radio Song (Out of Time, 1991)
Did the word “song” appear in any of their other song titles?
