Hi everybody

I have not heard of an 'I will survive' cover by REM (though I may have missed it); however, there is a version on the Man on the Moon soundtrack (which heavily features REM) by Tony Clifton. I know this doesn't really help, but it's the closest I could think of.

I Will Survive was the b-side of the 1996 christmas fanclub single. But there was no commercial release, but maybe you can find it on a bootleg.

It's available on Napster. Also, I think it was performed on an American late night talkshow (Or was that Lion Sleeps Tonight)
