"Pop Song 89 (REM cover)" as written by and Peter Buck Bill Berry....
Hello, I saw you, I know you, I knew you
I think I can remember your name
(Name)
Hello, I'm sorry, I lost myself
I think I thought you were someone else

Should we talk about the weather?
(Hi, hi, hi)
Should we talk about the government?
(Hi, hi, hi, hi)

Hello, how are you? I know you, I knew you
I think I can remember your name
(Name)
Hello, I'm sorry, I lost myself
I think I thought you were someone else

Should we talk about the weather?
(Hi, hi, hi)
Should we talk about the government?
(Hi)

Hello, my friend, are you visible today?
You know I never knew that it could be so strange
(So strange)
Hello, I'm sorry, I lost myself
I think I thought you were someone else

Should we talk about the weather?
(Hi, hi, hi)
Should we talk about the government?
(Hi, hi, hi, hi)

    General CommentTo me this sounds a lot like the chorus is saying "shouldn't we talk about the weather / shouldn't we talk about the government?" Although I realize that it's about the shallowness of modern relationships, I used to like to think that the chorus was about a relationship so great that it shocks the singer. Like, he believes they should be talking about something mundane or trying to make pointless conversation because that's what he's used to, but instead they know each other so well that they have much more meaningful conversation. Just a thought. =D

    General Commenti like it, but i think i prefer their original work to their covers, though both are good.
