I the song liftime by Better Than Ezra, it says "And that REM song was playing in my mind.
And three and a half minutes, Felt like a lifetime". I've heard the song plenty of times, but when I heard it today I began to wonder, just which REM song do they mean? I couldn't figure it out, on my own. So I was hoping there might be a few fans of REM, or Better Than Ezra, or both, here at hatrack, who might be able to figure out which song they might mean.


(P.S. I am never sure how much of a song is too much, if I quoted too much, I will gladly change it.)

It's probably a specific song, but to speculate like these people is just asking for a headache.

I vote for "You are the Everything" off Green. Even though it's 15 seconds too long. We're talking artistic license here.

A lot of their songs are really close, many within 10 or 15 seconds. But the only one I have that is exactly 3:30 is "Perfect Circle" from Murmur.

I could be missing something, though. The only albums of theirs I have are Murmur, Document, Automatic for the People, Reckoning and Out of Time. So if it's off a different album, you're out of luck from me.

Hope that helps.

In the song “Lifetime”, the lyrics reference an R.E.M. song. What song are they talking about?

Kevin has been asked this question before and his response has been that it’s a general REM song reference.

Well, so he says. I'm still thinking there must be one in particular he was thinking of. Otherwise it spoils the fun. [Smile]
