|REM EveryBody Hurts|
Alright, so Everybody Hurts is my most loved REM song, the song was released on the 1992 album Automatic for the People and was also released as a single in 1993. Everybody Hurts peaked at #29 on the Billboard Hot 100, #7 on the UK Singles Charts and #3 on the French Singles Chart. The song has an interesting factoid, it was written by drummer Bill Berry. The string arrangement was written by Led Zeppelin bassist John Paul Jones.
The song is about letting all your worries go, coz Everybdy hurts. I just simply love the video of this song, it's one of the best videos ever made. In the video it is shown that the band is stuck in a bad traffic jam. It shows the people in other cars and subtitles of their thoughts appear on screen, thoughts about stressful events that drapre their everyday lives. Then towards the end, its like they forget everything and all the people get out of their cars and walk through the traffic. It shows that in life there will always be problems, but in the end everythings ok.
The song is covered by many artists, one of my favourite cover is from The Corrs. The guitar chords of this song are pretty simple but you need to know the tempo of the song quite well to play it, play it really slow with the song a couple of times and you will figure it out.
Do share your comments about this song, and your views on the song.
