Song of the Day – “Driver 8” – R.E.M.

I’m going to be travelling a bit over the next week, and so I thought I’d feature some songs that deal with trains. I’ve already posted some of my favorites, including “Take the ‘A’ Train”, “Last Train to Clarksville”, “Morning Train”, “Night Train”, “Long Train Runnin’”, “Crazy Train” and “Train in the Distance”. That leaves a lot more.

This is probably my favorite. It’s a track from Fables of the Reconstruction, their third album. Although they were still firmly in their “jangle” phase, you can begin to hear the harder edge that they would embrace fully in just a few years.
