2 questions Sweetness Follows and Mandolin

greenspun.com : LUSENET : R.E.M. : One Thread

Why is Sweetness Follows called that it is such a dark song it should of been called Darkness Follows, but i cannot say anything bad about it it is a good song. Also is there a Mandolin Guitar in the background of Man On The Moon, just for my own peace of mind. Thanks

QUESTION NO.2: yes there is a mandolin in man on the moon...

QUESTION NO.1: i dont think anyone is at liberty to define what that songs about....decide for yourself....

I think that the song is called SWEETNESS FOLLOWS because after a dark and bad period...the sweetness and the happyness will always follow (sooner or later). That's all ;)
