Playlist – It’s The End of the World As We Know It by R.E.M.

This song is actually a moment of mourning. Recently, R.E.M. announced that they would be breaking up. It seems like an amiable split but still it is the end of an era and the end of one of my favorite bands. So in honor of this, I give you:

I have always enjoyed this song but my love for it grew when Rob downloaded it to play on Rock Band. It is a ridiculously fun song to sing along with. Come on, say it with me “LEONARD BERNSTIEN!!!”

Anyway, in the very unlikely event that any member of R.E.M. ever reads this – Thanks guys for the music, good luck with your future plans as solo artists and please, if you get the urge to reunite for another album sometime down the road, please don’t fight that impulse.


About Ciarrai

Hi. My name is Kerry but here online I tend to go by the Gaelic version of my name, Ciarrai. I am a woman in my mid-30's who lives on Long Island, NY, with my husband, Rob, several guitars, a Nikon D40, more yarn, beads and books than I care to admit to and a cat who has a million nicknames and quite a few theme songs. I have a B.A. in Psychology and have recently returned to college to pursue a teaching degree so that I can eventually get a job as a High School English teacher. In addition to my major obsessions (Reading, Beading, Knitting, Music and Photography), I also enjoy playing Board Games, going to Renaissance Faires, Museums and Broadway Musicals.
