I can always count on Rolling Stone Magazine to address my specific music interests. Last week Rolling Stone published the results of their readers poll of the ten best R.E.M. songs. I hope this becomes the mix of songs that R.E.M. choses to make their greatest hits CD due out in November. The previous greatest hits was very uneven, I rarely play it

I created a table based on the Rolling Stone Web article, which I thought was well annotated with a video and the accompanying text by Andy Greene.

Especially pumped that Automatic for the People had four selections as that’s my favorite R.E.M. recording.
