R.E.M. – Gardening At Night (1982)

YouTubeAmazon – iTunes – Discogs

It seems that some readers have already got a glimpse of what kicks off this week. (A handling error!) Originally released on their first EP Chronic Town in 1982, I actually feature the mix of ‘Gardening at Night’ that appeared on their Eponymous greatest hits collection in 1988 –  not only was I old enough to remember its release, but also you can hear the vocal in this version. And that’s important as the lyrics come thick, fast and full of mystery. The song is delivered with great energy, whatever it all means. Gardening at night? My mind boggles and my eyes move rapidly.
