Thirty Days of Politics # 17 R.E.M.

R.E.M were always pretty political, never more so on Lifes Rich Pageant. Written mostly by Bill Berry and Mike Mills it's one of their most interesting melodies. The Cuyahoga is a river in Ohio. Peter Buck said of it: '(it's) a metaphor for America and its lost promises. This is where the Indians were and now look at it. It's one of the ugliest fucking rivers in the world.'
