Você tem que ouvir



R.E.M. - "Nightswimming"

Na verdade você tem que ouvir todas as músicas do disco Automatic For The People, um trabalho irrepreensível do grupo americano. A versão de estúdio de "Nightswimming" dá pra ouvir aqui.


E essa versãozinha com o vocalista Michael Stipe sendo acompanhado pelo Coldplay? Bonita também.


Aqui, mais uma rapinagem que faço do allmusic:


Ostensibly about teenage skinny-dipping, the penultimate song from R.E.M.'s Automatic for the People, "Nightswimming," is actually a bittersweet ode to nostalgia and the freedom and innocence of youth. This theme and musical mood had already been explored on "Hairshirt" and "You Are the Everything" from 1988's Green, and once again the band evokes melancholy without being maudlin. Besides piano, Michael Stipe's voice and some strings are the only things heard, a sound not typically embraced by so-called alternative artists. This makes sense, for R.E.M.'s interest has always lied in transcending the confines of that meaningless label. As such, the song's almost chamber pop atmosphere has more to do with the Beatles than the guitar-heavy groups that originally influenced the band. John Paul Jones of Led Zeppelin fame arranged the strings, and it shows another link between two seemingly disparate groups who actually shared not only pushing the boundaries of their craft but also the ability to make not less than a good record as common pursuits. Along with album-closer "Find the River," "Nightswimming" somehow makes sadness feel hopeful, as did most of 1992's Automatic for the People, perhaps R.E.M.'s last undisputed masterpiece.
