Lifes Rich Pageant

R.E.M.’s album Lifes Rich Pageant is probably the best sing-along album of all of the albums in R.E.M.’s catalog. It’s my second favorite R.E.M. album after Automatic for the People. I’m listening to it now at work, and I feel like bursting out in song: “Fa-all on me!” Of course, this would annoy the people sitting outside my office.
