Radio XXXIII, side B, track 12: “Sitting Still” by R.E.M.

R.E.M. - Sitting StillOh, R.E.M., this is it.  This is the last song I captured from the Now and Then Weekend.  It’s been a fun ride, R.E.M., listening to not only songs that I’d kinda forgotten about, but songs that were kinda rare to begin with, and had I had the wherewithal, I could have maybe used those rare songs to convince the girls that I was this mysterious hip guy who collected all these rare tracks and brooded in his room contemplating the darkness of the world while he listened to early R.E.M. songs that you probably never heard of, they’re pretty rare.  I could have been one of the first hipsters.  I had a mullet.  I wore Hawaiian shirts and had the inklings of a mustache.  Unfortunately I didn’t wear any of these things ironically.  Also, as we’ve learned from yesterday’s post, I’m not very mysterious.  I apparently am fine sharing most details of my life, and most of these details would not make people think that I was mysterious or hip or even the least bit cool.  But ya know what, R.E.M., I did still listen to a radio station that played rare R.E.M. tracks, and if you ignore the fact that I was probably doing so unironically wearing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles pajamas, that’s still pretty cool.

“Sitting Still”

This name I got we all agreed

She could stop, stop it well rid

We could bind it in the sis

We could gather, throw a fit

Up to par and Katie bars the kitchen signs but not me in

Set a trap for love, big kill
Don’t waste your time sittin’ still

I’m the sun and you can read

I’m the sign and you’re not deaf

We could bind it in the sis

We could gather, throw a fit

Up to par and Katie bars the kitchen signs but not me in

Set a trap for love, big kill
Don’t waste your time sittin’ still

I can hear you

I can hear you

I can hear you, this name I got we all agree

She could stop, stop it well rid

We could bind it in the sis

We could gather, throw a fiiiiit
Up to par and Katie bars the kitchen signs but not me in

Set a trap for love, big kill, don’t waste your time sittin’ still

I can hear you

I can hear you

I can hear you can gather when I talk

Talk until you’re blue

You could get away from me
Get away from me, I’m up to par and Katie bars the kitchen signs but not me in

Set a trap for love, big kill, don’t waste your time sittin’ still

I can hear you

I can hear you

I can hear you

I can hear you

I can hear you

I can hear you

Can you hear me
