My Music Monday

It's that thing - again - where I just shuffle through and pick the 10th song that comes up, no question's asked. 

Oddly, song #9 was Fleetwood Mac's "No Questions Asked".

But we landed on REM.  ...and not Michael Stipe REM.

Well, sure, he was there, but it is one of those few songs that has lead vocal by bassist, Mike Mills.

As much as I liked the band and a bunch of their catalog, I was always intrigued by the songs that had prominent (or semi-prominent, I guess) harmony / backing vocals by Mills.

Neither Mills or Stipe are what you'd call superior vocalists, but they had a thing when they sang together. Well, at least I thought they did.

Mills' "Near Wild Heaven" appeared on their Out of Time album (think: "Shiny Happy People" and "Losing My Religion"), so in theory it got exposure.

Imagine the $$$ he'll be raking in if you all listen to it via my blog post.  I mean, that's like another $1.82 in his pocket.
