New Wave Wednesday: "Losing My Religion", by R.E.M.

Losing My ReligionImage via WikipediaI know what you're thinking, this song came out in 1991. That's way past the New Wave era. Losing My Religion ranks #41 on HUBpages.com's list, "The 250 Greatest '80s New Wave' Songs".

Hub Page's DJ Funktual writes, "It was 1991 but it was New Wave-Folk and it was downright moving in a way we don't always understand. Michael Stipe claims to be mystified by it still to this day. Every once in a while everything just falls into place perfectly. 'Life...is bigger.'"

I couldn't agree more.
