Crazy What You Could've Had
Nightswimming, and its deserving of a quiet night.
Well, I used to think that R.E.M. had recorded one of the
most beautiful songs I had ever heard, Nightswimming. They
had. I have the single and album, anyways.
It turns out, that even without such great musicians as
they the song retains its beauty. I would urge (no, really,
maybe stronger than that) that everyone owns a copy. It is
truly a song to reminisce and weep to.
JMS has clocked up many of my favourite songs during his
life; Rockville, So. Central Rain,
Electrolite etc. But this one is in a league of its own.
So, I've never seen it live, I don't really need to. It
haunts me everywhere I go. Its melancholy lives with me. I
cannot escape its beauty and presence. I don't want to.
Love it with me.
