I read bad poetry into your machine

Thought of this song, At My Most Beautiful, the other day. I still remember the first time I had heard it. We were at the Bridge School Benefit in 1998, I believe. it was at least a couple months before their album, Up, had dropped and REM were headling one of the nights that year when I saw them play this. It was love at first listen with this song, the sweetly touching lyrics and the Beach Boys style music came together perfectly. Sadly, this is one of the few REM tracks I like in the post Bill Berry era, but that's another discussion.

REM > At My Most Beautiful
