Song of the Day – “Name’s the same” Tuesday – “Get Up”

R.E.M. – Mike + the Mechanics

This song from Green is perfect for the stadium phase of R.E.M.’s career. Certainly moreso than “Perfect Circle” or “Nightswimming”.

“Sleep delays my life”, Michael says. What’s wrong with that?

Slick eighties white-boy soul. Who else could it be but Paul Carrack, here the vocalist for Mike Rutherford’s band?
