The Lion Sleeps Tonight : LUSENET : R.E.M. : One Thread

Ever since I heard it played on a juke box in a Waffle House at 3 A.M. four weeks ago, I have been obsessed with finding a copy of R.E.M.'s cover of "The Lion Sleeps Tonight" (which I know is on "The Sidewinder Sleeps Tonight" Single). Can anybody tell me if this single is still available because I can't find it anywhere (including online music shops and music auctions)? If it's not available, would it be too much to ask if anyone who own's the single and a CD burner could mail me a copy? I'd be willing to send someone a copy of "R.E.M. Collected Singles" (which, unfortunately, doesn't have my song) or "R.E.M.: Essential Demos" (a strange burnt CD a friend gave me which is apparently early demos from Murmur). If anyone can help me, I'd be incredibly greatful. Thanks,

I know there are a few versions out on Napster.

sorry, this isn't an answer since i'm pretty sure that CD is out of print, but I'd like to know what is on that "Essential Demos" CD?? Thanks :)

Have you heard of 'The Automatic Box'? It contains four CDs each with b-sides from Automatic and Green singles, and was released in Europe. 'The Lion Sleeps Tonight' is on disc 4.

Hope this helps

It's a b-side on the Sidewinder Sleeps Tonite single. Hope this helps
