30 Day Song Challenge - day 16

day 16 - a song that you used to love but now hate

I don't actually remember loving this song but it was on my favourite mixtape from the early 90s, so I must have really liked it at some point:

Never the greatest REM song to begin with, it suffered the fate of being played to death absolutely everywhere back in '92 and, for a period of time, being the song of choice for tv editors and producers when producing mawkish video montages.

What banged the final nail into the song's coffin was that godawful video. The wiki page informs us that the storyboard of the video was inspired by a Fellini classic, but what it really needed was this bloke to step into the frame and liven up proceedings.
