Walked with a Zombie? What the...?

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

In the song " I Walked with a Zombie" throughout the song the only lyrics are just that. What the hell gave michael or why the hell did michael write this lyric? And someone said Bill sings in it - WHEN???

Bill actually sings in that song! When? How can I answer that? OK, OK, I'll try... Umm... He starts singing exactly 45 seconds before the end of the song.

Michael didn4t write the lyrics. "I Walked With a Zombie" is a cover, originally written and sung by Rocky Erikson. On R.E.M.4s version, all bandmembers sing; well, Peter didn4t really sing, he spoke the lyrics at the end of the song.
