And I Feel Fine is available in two versions: a standard one-disc version with twenty-one fan-favorite tracks spanning the Chronic Town EP from 1982 to Document from 1987 including every song released as a single on IRS except for Wendell Gee and Superman; and a second edition that adds a bonus disc including rarities, the Superman single, unreleased songs, and alternate mixes. Two songs, Bad Day and All the Right Friends, appear in demo or outtake versions here, as opposed to final versions on the 2003 Warner Bros. R.E.M. compilation In Time: The Best of R.E.M. 1988-2003.
It's the End of the World as We Know It (And I Feel Fine) is a song by the rock band R.E.M., which appeared on their 1987 album Document, the 1988 compilation Eponymous, and the 2006 compilation And I Feel Fine... The Best of the I.R.S Years 1982–1987 It was released as a single in November 1987, reaching #69 US Billboard Hot 100 and later reaching #39 in the UK singles chart on its re-release in December 1991.
As disappointing as their Warner Brothers trajectory has proved, R.E.M.'s I.R.S. years were a period of sustained and boundless creativity, which makes And I Feel Fine inevitably enthralling, and hearing these songs in the context of a late-career retrospective feels undeniably rewarding. In short, there's not a bad song on this tracklist. Hell, there's not even a single merely good song on here. And I Feel Fine is 42 mind-blowing tracks from a band that helped to define and codify indie rock.
That's great, it starts with an earthquake, birds and snakes, an aeroplane -Lenny Bruce is not afraid. Eye of a hurricane, listen to yourself churn -world serves its own needs, regardless of your own needs. Feed it up a knock,speed, grunt no, strength no. Ladder structure clatter with fear of height,down height. Wire in a fire, represent the seven games in a government forhire and a combat site. Left her, wasn't coming in a hurry with the furiesbreathing down your neck. Team by team reporters baffled, trump, tetheredcrop. Look at that low plane! Fine then. Uh oh, overflow, population,common group, but it'll do. Save yourself, serve yourself. World serves itsown needs, listen to your heart bleed. Tell me with the rapture and thereverent in the right - right. You vitriolic, patriotic, slam, fight, brightlight, feeling pretty psyched.
