R.E.M. & Natalie Merchant - Photograph

| Keith
I found this photograph,
Underneath the broken picture glass.
Tender face of black and white,
Beautiful, a haunting sight.
Looked into an angel's smile,
Captivated all the while.
From the hair and clothes she wore,
I'd place her in between the wars.

How about a little throwback to get us back into the swing of things. R.E.M.'s Automatic for the People, while not my favorite, I prefer their older stuff, it is a terrific album and it's recently been re-released for its 25th anniversary. As part of that release, "Photograph", a song that, as far as I know, is not on the album, showed up in my release radar and, wow, I'm amazed at how well it holds up.
