Live, From Reunion Arena, It's R.E.M. on MTV



Over on Unfair Park a little while ago I said my piece about R.E.M.'s unexpected farewell, conveyed via the band's website, and directed your attention to the band's 1986 stopover at the Fair Park Band Shell -- a must-have on this or any other day. I also reminded Pete about the '95 show at Reunion Arena, remnants of which exist on YouTube since MTV aired the first three songs -- "I Took Your Name," "What's The Frequency, Kenneth?" and "Crush With Eyeliner" --live that night.

It was quite the scene -- cameras and cranes everywhere, and it wasn't till the encore ("So. Central Rain," two songs form the end) that it felt like The Good Ol' Days. Still, they shoulda filmed the opening act, some band named ... Radiohead, I think they're called?
