Somewhere I heard REM to a partial cover of an old song that goes "love is kind of crazy with a spooky little girl like you." Thay break up into laughter right in the middle of it, though. Does anyone know what album that is off of?

This is a cover version called "Spooky", but I don4t know where the original artist was. R.E.M. had never recorded it in studio, so it isn4t on any album or single of the band. They played it live for sometimes, the last one was in Hamburg, Germany on November 2nd 1998. You can find it on a bootleg from this concert.

REM has covered the song "Spooky," which was originally a 50s song by the band Classics IV. However, I don't think it's true that they cut it off laughing in the middle, I have an MP3 of it where they actually finish the song. It's available on live bootlegs only.
