The Friday OT: R.E.M.; Drive

Fits the mood of this week:

This 2003 live recording caught Stipe in that blue makeup period of his. It also catches him with a rasping voice which sounds like he'd recently had the flu or something. It works well with this, one of the darker songs in the REM repertoire. The band was on top form that night.

Dedicated to DS in Savannah. You know why, dudette.
