52 Songs for 52 Weeks: Leaving New York by REM

Week 6 – Leaving New York by REM

You find it in your heart; it’s pulling me apart

At one point in their career, REM couldn’t release a song without getting massive airplay.  Then something strange happened – they put out one album that no one liked all that much (New Adventures in HiFi).  After that album cooled REM’s popularity, for some strange reason they could never recapture radio stations.

Their last few albums got virtually no recognition and a bunch of incredible songs never got the attention they deserved.

This is one of those songs. 

It’s easier to leave then be left behind…
