I fuckin love R.E.M. "Out of Time" takes me back to jr. high, when everyone started to play guitar. That and R.H.C.P.s "By the Way"

I actually think "Losing My Religion" is overrated... never interested me much.

no way. it's underrated, if anything.

It's a good song, I know that, but for some reason it hasn't quite held up for me. Maybe it's not musically interesting enough. The whole "that's me in the corner" bit is a little melodramatic, too.

"Up" is very underrated.

I think Up is kind of meh, but isn't it true that it had massive influence on Radiohead as they were putting together Kid A / Amnesiac? There's also the fact that Nigel Godrich engineered Up.

Reveal might be better. "I've Been High" is great. (Though songcraft wise, that would probably work even better as a classic more acoustic R.E.M. track.) E: found it ... weird how that nearly perfect song goes to crap at 2:45, though.
