FRIDAY FUN: “Driver 8”

Here’s a rare acoustic performance of R.E.M.’s “Driver 8”. What makes this particular performance so interesting is that it’s supposedly from a July 1984 episode of the show “The Cutting Edge”… which was almost a year before Fables of the Reconstruction was released.

Have a watch and tell us what you think:

  1. Thanks so much for posting this. Sigh. The music is SO good, even with the stripped down arrangement and not even being able to hear Mike Mills’ harmonies — it’s completely compelling, and Peter Buck’s guitar hooks still make me sing along. They are so so young! As were we all.
