R.E.M. - Driver 8

| Keith
I saw a tree house on the outskirts of the farm. 
The power lines have floaters so the airplanes won't get snagged. 
Bells are ringing through the town again, 
Children look up, all they hear is sky-blue, bells ringing

I think "Driver 8" might be my favorite R.E.M. song. I am a big fan of their earlier work, especially the moodier, Southern Gothic stuff you hear less and less of as they went on. 1985's Fables of The Reconstruction being a highlight in a pile of greatness for me. I recently took a long, deep dive into their back catalog and, damn, I've got a lot of good memories associated with their music. It brought me right back to my teenage years in Seattle, KJET (1982-1988) on the radio and my burgeoning record collection.
