Shiny Happy People was the first song I ever heard from R.E.M. and it was my guide on my journey to good music.
I remember the day like it was yesterday. I was sitting in the back of the car while my parents had a deep conversation in the front. I couldn't hear a lot of the music coming out of the radio but when this song came on I put my head as near to the speakers as I could.
It touched my heart and my soul. And from this moment on I knew that's the kind of music I wanna listen to for the rest of my life and I still do.

The first REM song I ever heard. I remember my Mom, wanting to introduce it to me, told me that REM had played it on Sesame Street when I was a little kid. I didn't remember that, but despite my reluctance at the time to hear songs that were new to me I didn't complain when she put "Out of Time" into the car's tape player. I listened to "Shiny Happy People" over and over again for days afterwards.
