Dear R.E.M.,

Why do you not come back and grace us with your musical presence? My sister and I grew up singing the "Radio Song" which for some reason we thought was hilarious. "Losing My Religion" was up there as well. Papa Dagger would play R.E.M. while he was playing pool and Sister Dagger and I would hide under the pool table jamming out. Good times!

On a different note...the video above is probably the last video R.E.M. will ever do. "Blue" was directed by James Franco, has Patti Smith on guest vocals and Lindsey Lohan appears in the video as well. The song is eerie and odd but I'm digging it. What do you think Southern Tier, do you like it? Should R.E.M. come back or should they retire? You tell me!
