30-Day Song Challenge: Day 8

Day 8: A Song That You Know All the Words To – R.E.M.’s It’s the End of the World as we Know it 

Jessie and I must have played this tape back over a hundred times that day.  We weren’t giving up until we knew every word.  After a few hours, we were successful.

And while I can’t remember half the people I spoke with or half the things I did at work this week, I still remember every word to this song.

About Dena

I'm a suburban Clevelander by way of Oklahoma City, by way of North Florida, by way of Southern Maryland, by way of Upper Michigan, by way of Northern Italy, by way of Lower Michigan, by way of Texas. Because of living in so many places, I have something in common with almost everyone I meet. I love reading, writing, and American history (especially reading or writing about American history). I'm interested in culture of place, historical trauma, and writing about the kinds of histories most people don't know about.
