R.E.M. - Half a world away

The band R.E.M. convinced me a long time ago because of Michael Stipe's unique, fantastic voice. I could hear him singing all day long. Their song "Half a world away" is full of emotions, the music is soft and beautiful and the lyrics are one of the best I've ever heard.

Stipe once said in an interview that this song is about a man, who is strongly in love with a  woman, but because of a bad illness, he is supposed to die soon.


"..I had too much to drink, so I didn't think. And I didn't think of you. I guess that's all I needed, to go it alone and hold it along.."


 In my opinion this is a very underrated song of R.E.M.. It's really amazing, so please do me the favour and listen to it, I'm sure you won't regret it. :-)
