A classic from R.E.M. that was first released in November of the year before.
It peaked at UK#51 to be their biggest hit so far at the time. It returned to the chart after 9 months for a one week visit on this day in the 80s, at #99.
It was re-released in ’91 after they had had more success, when it finally reached #16. This first time around though, it was their first of 39 top 75 hits.
In the US it reached #9, their first of four top ten hits from ’87-’91.
A simple prop to occupy my time
