REM live in London

If you want to get a sense of why I was so excited about the REM show I attended in Chicago a while back, check out this short set of songs from the band’s Apple in-store performance: R.E.M. - iTunes Live: From London

Pretty amazing how the new stuff meshes so well with the older material. “Living Well” into “Auctioneer,” for example, just plain rocks. So thrilled they’re playing “Auctioneer.” It’s always been one of my favorite REM songs, but I thought I was in the minority. May be, but the band apparently thinks it should be played – I agree. Now if they’d only do “Laughing.”
