R.E.M.: West of the Fields [1983]

Continuing the R&R HOF series, this song is the last track on 1983's Murmur. This is R.E.M.'s small budget impression of a 2005 English dance band. I'm into it.

And rudolf55 considers it the 117th best R.E.M. song, which he ranks one above Letter Never Sent. I'd say he nailed that one.

Buy Murmur here.
