R.E.M. - Losing my religion (The story behind the song)
We all grew up hearing the song "Loosing My Religion" by REM. I loved it as a kid. It's also spoken to me through a thousand different situations through the years.
The lead singer of REM (When did he get so old, by the way?) not only tells so eloquently about how it's not all really about religion, but about "unrequited love", but he explains PERFECTLY the struggle to write something genuine.
I can relate to that! Writing "The Child Advocate" needs to be genuine as he says. I can relate to throwing everyone out of a room and getting naked to do it, although it's never come to that.
Thanks REM for such a classic. I hope I can leave mine behind as well.
