I must say (sounds sad) that some of their music, Losing My Religion and Everybody Hurts, helped Me over come the death of My dad in 2004. Very few bad songs out of REM.

Only 30 years eh! No wonder I've not heard of them !! Bunch of newcomers ! TBH Dozens have come and gone without me noticing. Most of them I see as 4 or 5 poseurs with screaming guitars , a heavy bass line and instantly forgettable songs.

Must admit to liking K.T.Tunstall, Rumer and Caro Emerald though . Not a great fan of modern pop TBH but the odd one shines through the comercalised syruppy carp that is spoon fed to us these days.

Steps, I've written loads that never caught on :

Erica Digby picks up the mice in the schoolyard, was one .

Saturday , that was a flop .

Roll over Mendelson , sent that in to Chuck Berry , never had a reply.

Mailhouse Rock about a rocking postman , no interest.

I've given up now.
