Does anybody like Low(Out Of Time) because i do even though it is a little sombre. I think on there next album they should remake it a put a drum beat into it, it would sound great, there are other songs i think they should redo to get them songs popular again, such as Losing My Religion etc.

Yep, Low is a great song, well wouldn't u expect a song called low to be a bit sombre. Your point about remaking songs, i don't quite agree with, R.E.M have so much money and credibility that they no longer need to make songs popular.... And the only reason the guys still make music is they enjoy writing and recording NEW songs, adding a drum beat to a song, is something anybody could do, its no challenge....

I truly luv "low." Truly, I live the line..."I skip the part...about luv...it seems so silly, and low." Ouch! Truly, this song is a winner! Like, I find that ya can relate to this song in o'so many darn ways. Anypops..."Low" is truly a gem. Chow. M

I think that Low is one of the worst songs that REM have recorded (bar airport man), it is definatly the worst song on Out of Time.

Low is awesome. My friend told me a group in the southern california area covered it to a heavy metal beat. I still want to hear that.

Ok like, don't y'all just go "'truly crazy" when this skit comes on.... You and me We know about time We know how things go They come and go They live and grow They pass and go And glow and glow Up and down High and low Low low low Low low low

Like, this song gets o'so darn spazick at that point and it truly drives me wild. Great song! Chow. M
