I wanted to drop a quick update inspired by my trip to the grocery store. I was idling around, waiting for a clerk to help me with something, and suddenly, over the store speakers, I heard the opening bars to ‘Fall On Me.’ I’ve since fallen out of my R.E.M. phase that reached its peak in early high school. Really, In Time was one of the huge motivating factors in me getting into music. It’s funny, I don’t think I ever realized, that record chronicles R.E.M.’s music from 1988-2003, which at the time of its release encompassed my entire life!
The band’s older work will always hold a special place in my heart, and it was nice to get an unexpected reminder of that fact.
