I don't know how you feel, for me it is a song illuminated by spring rays, those that bring rebirth after a cruel, dark, hard winter. It is, along with Speak In Tongues, the most positive song on the whole album. The song directly calls out - look at us, after all we've been through, we rise like a mythical phoenix bird from the ashes, stronger, more beautiful, happier, full of faith in a better tomorrow.

"Let me put it this way — I have a theory about drugs and alcohol. There is a limited amount that a human being is able to consume in a course of a lifetime. Some people are sensible and consume the amount that’s able to stretch a lifetime. Some people who are not so sensible, like me and Stefan, consume that limited amount in a period of about 10 years. There comes a point that it doesn’t do anything for you that isn’t negative. In fact, it destroys your life and you lose everything. Then one has to either surrender to that, which most people do, which begins the inevitable descent to nothingness and emptiness. Or one takes the courageous step to try and rebuild one's life in a more positive way, which was what Stefan and I decided to do. It was one life choice and a major philosophical influence on the record."

Anyway, for Placebo it's a very atypical song, very original, it could be played on mainstream radio from morning till night as a pop rock anthem, spread that positivity to all listeners and it wouldn't be bad at all.

⭐𝐋𝐘𝐑𝐈𝐂𝐒
Cast your mind back to the days
When I’d pretend I was okay
I had so very much to say
About my crazy living
Now that I’ve stared into the void
So many people I’ve annoyed
I have to find a middle way,
A better way of giving

So I haven’t given up
But all my choices, my good luck
Appeared to go and get me stuck
In an open prison
Now I am trying to break free
Be in a state of empathy
Find the true and inner me
Eradicate the schism

No-one can take it away from me
And no-one can tear it apart
Because a heart that hurts is a heart that works
A heart that hurts is a heart that works

A heart that hurts is a heart that works

No-one can take it away from me
And no-one can tear it apart
It may be elaborate fantasy
But it’s the perfect place to start

Because a heart that hurts is a heart that works
A heart that hurts is a heart that works

“The lyrics are very autobiographic, a complete confession from my point of view. On former records I used to invent characters, through which I could talk about my feelings and fears. I used these characters as selfprotection and catalysator to express myself. This time I didn't do this. The voice of the storyteller is my own. I think this record is much more honest and personal with these lyrics.“

The video for this song was directed by Heroes for Zeroes and is the 24th official video of Placebo's career.

It's an absolute contrast between lived anxiety and rediscovered hope, the duality between darkness and light seems to confirm the theme not only of this song, but of the entire album.
đŸ”č💬 𝐒𝐓𝐄𝐅𝐀𝐍: “I mean that there seems to be quite a lot of light and dark themes with this record in terms of the album cover as the beginning. With the solar eclipse, you go to the light from the darkness to light it down. And what we’re trying to do in the video, is playing with the contrast between light and dark, so we’re kind of going from playing in the darkness together, and then we emerging and leaving to play into this quite illuminated backdrop.”

đŸ„°Brian's great mood, his smile and his bright eyes when he finds out technical problems with Bill Loyd's non-functioning bass guitar during the song are definitely worth seeing.

⭐𝐒𝐎𝐍𝐆 𝐈𝐍𝐅𝐎:
Meds is the opening track of the self-titled album released in 2006.

đŸ”č💬 𝐁𝐑𝐈𝐀𝐍 𝐎𝐍 𝐌𝐄𝐃𝐒💊:
"I wrote it during my stay in India, like 'Song to say goodbye'. 'Meds' is about loosing yourself, not recognizing yourself. You feel lost, desperate, and you don't know what you think anymore, what you really feel. It's a very disturbing feeling, for me and for everyone, and I wanted to express it. I'm glad it's the opening song of the album, it's the 1st time a Placebo record opens with an acoustic chord."
(𝚁𝚘𝚌𝚔 đ™ŒđšŠđš, 𝙰𝚙𝚛𝚒𝚕 𝟾00đŸŒ)

"An addiction is a form of escape: you run away from yourself. It's a way of not facing life, to make things worse. Of course, you can have more or less control over it. It depends on whether the problem is due to your environment or whether it comes from your chromosomes. Sometimes it's hard to face things. To look at yourself with detachment. Living empirically, experimenting, is always easier than "following a path", but at the end of the day, you can't run away forever. At some point, you have to deal with all aspects of your life. Even the most painful ones."

I have a very deep personal connection to this song and will be very open in this post... because I know I'm not the only one whose life has been changed by Placebo music.

💊𝙈𝙀𝘿𝙎 𝙞𝙣 đ™©đ™đ™š đ™–đ™˜đ™€đ™Șđ™šđ™©đ™žđ™˜ đ™«đ™šđ™§đ™šđ™žđ™€đ™Ł is something that gave me chills and nausea at one important stage in my life.

Maybe you know it too. A song you've known for years suddenly turns into a demon. It's in your ears all the time, day and night...

You can't get rid of the notes, the words. They come up in many everyday situations. And you don't want to hear it anymore because because it hurts...
It happened when MEDS was already 10 years old. I don't want to share very painful details, but I was going through a period that I wouldn't wish anyone in the world to experience.

The mental pain from the situation that totally wounded me was reflected psychosomatically in my physical body... and I cried out for help with every cell of my being and I've only encountered a lack of understanding from those closest to me.

I still remember the moment when this slow version first hit me right in the heart. I was listening to music before falling asleep and suddenly I was sitting on my bed crying.

💔𝑰 𝒅𝒊𝒅𝒏'𝒕 𝒓𝒆𝒄𝒐𝒈𝒏𝒊𝒛𝒆 𝒎𝒚 𝒍𝒊𝒇𝒆, 𝒎𝒚𝒔𝒆𝒍𝒇, 𝒘𝒉𝒚 𝑰 𝒘𝒂𝒔 𝒉𝒆𝒓𝒆. đ‘»đ’‰đ’‚đ’•'𝒔 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝒑𝒐𝒘𝒆𝒓 𝒐𝒇 𝒎𝒖𝒔𝒊𝒄.đŸ”„

The outline of the shadow lying beside me was insensitive to my emotions and I suddenly realized the depth of my problem. The fact that I try to maintain an image of my perfect happiness in front of the whole world and yet it was such a lie... It's an image of my addiction. Not on drugs, but on a dysfunctional marriage and family paradigm.

The line about meds was suddenly like a mockery to me... đŸ”č"𝘉𝘱𝘣đ˜ș..đ˜„đ˜Șđ˜„ đ˜șđ˜°đ˜¶ đ˜§đ˜°đ˜łđ˜šđ˜Šđ˜” đ˜”đ˜° đ˜”đ˜ąđ˜Źđ˜Š đ˜șđ˜°đ˜¶đ˜ł đ˜źđ˜Šđ˜„đ˜Ž?"

No one cared how I really felt.

𝐀𝐭 𝐓𝐇𝐀𝐓 𝐩𝐹𝐩𝐞𝐧𝐭, a very deep cleansing process started in my inner world. The process where I got out of the phase of blaming others for my situation and started blaming myself.
đŸ”č'...𝘐 𝘾𝘱𝘮 𝘱𝘭𝘰𝘯𝘩, 𝘧𝘱𝘭𝘭đ˜Ș𝘯𝘹 𝘧𝘳𝘩𝘩, đ˜”đ˜łđ˜șđ˜Ș𝘯𝘹 𝘼đ˜ș đ˜Łđ˜Šđ˜Žđ˜” đ˜Żđ˜°đ˜” đ˜”đ˜° đ˜§đ˜°đ˜łđ˜šđ˜Šđ˜”,..

I think that even in psychology these individual phases are described in detail.
This unwanted and unwelcome anthem was ringing in my ears every day and I couldn't escape it.
If you fight something in anger and hatred, it keeps coming back, even stronger, to finally bring you down.

💔Thoughts of suicide appeared... after all, I'm just a burden to everyone and myself.

🙏I didn't give up. During this cleansing process, two more very important phases followed -
𝐀𝐂𝐂𝐄𝐏𝐓𝐀𝐍𝐂𝐄 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐅𝐎𝐑𝐆𝐈𝐕𝐄𝐍𝐄𝐒𝐒.

But Meds for me will always be the song that on a subconscious level broke down the totally barricaded door to my wounded ego that wanted to stay hidden and feel sorry for itself until the very end.

Today, the slow version of Meds is a favorite lullaby for me. I love these Placebo acoustic songs and I will be happy if you enjoy this perfection with me tonight.

In these videos that I have selected for you, you can see how time went with this song.

đŸŒčThe song 𝐄𝐕𝐄𝐑𝐘 𝐘𝐎𝐔 𝐄𝐕𝐄𝐑𝐘 𝐌𝐄 (along with the entire WYIN album - except Pure Morning) was recorded in early 1998 at Real World Studios with producer Steve Osborne.

đŸŒčThe single managed to chart at number 11 on the UK Singles Chart, number 46 in Australia, and number 99 in Germany.

đŸŒčIt was voted from a poll of 500,000 votes to be ranked number 83 on the list of the Hottest 100 of All Time in July 2009, conducted by Australian radio station Triple J.

đŸŒčThe single was released as a 2-CD set and on cassette, but promotional copies on 12-inch vinyl also exist.

đŸŒčThis song was used as the theme song for the famous American drama ⭐𝐂𝐑𝐔𝐄𝐋 𝐈𝐍𝐓𝐄𝐍𝐓𝐈𝐎𝐍𝐒⭐ with Ryan Phillippe, Reese Witherspoon, Selma Blair and Sarah Michelle Gellar. This film is based on the 1782 novel "đƒđšđ§đ đžđ«đšđźđŹ 𝐋𝐱𝐚𝐱𝐬𝐹𝐧𝐬" 𝐛đČ đ‚đĄđšđđžđ«đ„đšđŹ 𝐝𝐞 đ‹đšđœđ„đšđŹ, which is set in the present day.

The plot concerns two high school step siblings from New York's high society, who are forever at war with each other and scheme and manipulate other people to achieve their goals, including sex and revenge. I think 𝐄𝐕𝐄𝐑𝐘 𝐘𝐎𝐔 𝐄𝐕𝐄𝐑𝐘 𝐌𝐄 is a great choice for the overall experience of this drama. The lyrics reflect the tone and plot of the film, especially Ryan's character Sebastian.
Following a bet with his evil sister, he decides to hurt a girl who is very vulnerable and naive, and as a result, everything comes to an inescapably tragic end.

It was 1999. MTV channel was playing on the TV. The first notes of the song came on, and the singer's voice rang inside my chest. That was my "Wooow PLACEBO!!!" first time. With my arms full - washed clothes in one hand and my almost one-year-old daughter in the other and a baby dummy in my mouth - I stood in front of the television and for several minutes I could not take my eyes off the ambiguous singing being. These memories are still as vivid and strong as if it were yesterday...

Dear friends, many of us experience these winter days worse than the rest of the year.

Short sunshine, cold weather, snow and frost...
In connection with various hardships in life, this period causes a more frequent tendency to depression and gloomy thoughts in many people, the world seems sadder, darker.

When you add to all of this the troubles with love, with the end of a relationship, when we are shocked, angry, aggressive or just totally desperate, it can knock us down to the very bottom.

For today's post, I have chosen a song that is the perfect anthem for all broken hearts.

đŸ”„...𝘐𝘧 𝘐 đ˜€đ˜°đ˜¶đ˜­đ˜„ đ˜”đ˜Šđ˜ąđ˜ł đ˜șđ˜°đ˜¶ 𝘧𝘳𝘰𝘼 đ˜”đ˜©đ˜Š đ˜€đ˜Šđ˜Ș𝘭đ˜Ș𝘯𝘹

A perfect, heartbreaking anthem about the end of love. A drama about despair expressed in very moving words and complemented by a gentle combination of guitar and piano accompanied by a drum machine...

⭐𝐒𝐎𝐍𝐆 𝐈𝐍𝐅𝐎:

“𝐁𝐋𝐈𝐍𝐃” was written and recorded around 2002 when Placebo were working on covers with producer Dimitri Tikovoi.

Stefan: “We didn't want to make a B-side of it, so we kept the original recording for this album [“Meds”, released in 2006], just with vocals redone and more overdubs."

BLIND has been performed live 179 times, five of which were part of the setlist at intimate shows in 2022.

Lucky everyone who experienced this anthem about unrequited love live.

" Blind, included in Meds, is a somewhat alike song (I Know). The end of a relationship is kind like death. You have a life with someone and just suddendly, everything stops. The saddest part is that the world goes on and people go on minding their own business, without knowing the paint you feel. It's very interesting for an author to write about that."

đ‘ș𝒕𝒆𝒇𝒂𝒏: I wrote it 4 years ago, like Post Blue, when we were recording our covers with Dimitri [TikovoĂŻ]. The guitars are tuned in the same way on both tracks. At that time, we didn't want to make B-sides of them, we kept the original recording for this album [Meds], just with vocals redone and more overdubs.

Okay, so anyone who thought this song came from Brian's broken heart, might be wrong.

Fans can only speculate what all of Brian's experiences are in the lyrics of this painful ballad, as according to the quotes, the song Blind is mainly Stefan's child.
But a song is often created by a team... Someone suggests a musical line on the guitar or piano, someone comes up with a piece of verse...

I think that even the verses for Blind were created as a team, partly by Stefan, supplemented and completed by Brian. .. maybe...

đŸ”č💬 You have often been accused of being an intellectual band, sometimes you use somewhat complex phrasings. But for me, as you said, you're a band with a dark romanticism mood and I can not help but quote one of the most beautiful sentences that I have ever read in a song. Here's the quote. This is an excerpt from the title Blind.

You will tell me if my choice is right.

Yeah what I see, first, there is an incredible musicality. Afterwards, all you have to do is adding the music, but it's already there intrinsically in the sentence. And above all, tell us the truth, you're a Shakespeare fan? It's Romeo and Juliet. A bit like that.

⭐For me, this ballad has always evoked my personal memory of a relationship between lovers that was affected by drug addiction.

It was about my friends from my youth and their suffering that almost resulted in the death of that girl. Fortunately, she eventually came out of her coma in the hospital and entered a drug addiction treatment facility.

Nevertheless, it was the end of great love, because the boy's parents, fearing for their son's life, moved so far away that the two lovers could no longer see each other. Life sometimes brings experiences that are very cruel and take a painful place in our souls for the rest of our lives.

Thanks to these experiences of my friends, I can't forget the very special movie đŸ”č'𝐑𝐞đȘ𝐼𝐱𝐞𝐩 đŸđšđ« 𝐚 đƒđ«đžđšđŠ'đŸ”č, in which đ‰đšđ«đžđ 𝐋𝐞𝐭𝐹 played the main role. I agree with the fan who used bits from this movie as the 'official' video for the BLIND song.

Hello soulmates,
after a break caused by several important anniversaries, today we return to our beloved Placebo Lullabies.

Tonight is going to be special. I have two gems that give the term Placebo lullaby its true meaning.
I chose these two songs from 𝐌𝐄𝐃𝐒 album today also because they were both part of Placebo's đŸ”č𝐌𝟔 đđ«đąđŻđšđ­đž đ‚đšđ§đœđžđ«đ­ 𝐱𝐧 đŒđšđ„đšđ€đšđŸđŸ, đ…đ«đšđ§đœđž, 𝐹𝐧 𝐀𝐼𝐠𝐼𝐬𝐭 𝟑𝟏, 𝟐𝟎𝟎𝟔đŸ”č and followed each other, so it was very easy to upload a video with both songs at once.

So today you can enjoy a unique concert with Brian's fragile expression of a shy puppy, which I personally really love and recommend to anyone who doesn't know Placebo yet.

And even now, I play it several times in a row when I'm feeling down.

So dark, so melancholic, so intense... almost hypnotic... Leonard Cohen's influence is absolutely clear in this song.
I'm always struck at first by Brian's low-pitched voice, full of total surrender to bitter reality.

For me, ⭐'𝐈𝐍 𝐓𝐇𝐄 𝐂𝐎𝐋𝐃 𝐋𝐈𝐆𝐇𝐓 𝐎𝐅 𝐌𝐎𝐑𝐍𝐈𝐍𝐆'⭐ is a recurring misunderstanding of the narrator's life journey...

As if, thanks to a certain loop in reality, he kept experiencing the same thing...
A wild night full of drug highs and sex and a bitter morning when he is disgusted with himself when he looks in the mirror...
Everyone else wakes up to normal life...
And he again judges his experience as the height of hypocrisy, because it was yet another night as an escape from himself...

Although I've never tried hard drugs, this song is a reliable way for me to feel even worse in moments of self-disgust and enjoy the feeling, as crazy as it sounds.
It's a way for me to cry about not being in control of my life, and I know that relief will come right after because I will feel hope in my heart.

Hope for another day.
That everything I failed again will pass with the sunrise and I can try again.
And that I don't have to repeat the same mistake again.
For me personally, it's a beautiful and honest ballad about hope.
In the morning I will hear the kettle with hot water whistling again and the day will begin full of new opportunities for change.

If the first ballad is about hope, the second one is about pure human pain and knowing other forms of love.

This is the lullaby that always makes me cry when I let myself get carried away by this sad musical energy at night before bed.
Brian, in the form of a crying Pierrot, is in my mind and I can only add to that - 'đ™Źđ™đ™–đ™© đ™™đ™€đ™šđ™šđ™Ł'đ™© 𝙠𝙞𝙡𝙡 đ™źđ™€đ™Ș 𝙱𝙖𝙠𝙚𝙹 đ™źđ™€đ™Ș đ™šđ™©đ™§đ™€đ™Łđ™œđ™šđ™§.'

If the victim of abuse gets over such brutal life experiences and understands their meaning, if he can then forgive himself and the other person with love, he will find his value and achieve a very deep spiritual knowledge.

⭐'𝐈𝐍 𝐓𝐇𝐄 𝐂𝐎𝐋𝐃 𝐋𝐈𝐆𝐇𝐓 𝐎𝐅 𝐌𝐎𝐑𝐍𝐈𝐍𝐆' was played live only 4 times and ⭐'𝐏𝐈𝐄𝐑𝐑𝐎𝐓 𝐓𝐇𝐄 𝐂𝐋𝐎𝐖𝐍' 6 times.

I think it's a great shame because these songs are also indicators of Brian's masterful songwriting talent and Placebo's music made them unforgettable gems.


Dear friends, my post ends today. Enjoy part of this private concert from 2006, and as always, I look forward to hearing your feelings about these two wonderful lullabies. Tell me, which one do you like better and why? And how do you like the demo versions.

🌛◾Have a good night and take care of yourselves.◾🌜

🎉 We remember ✨đ‘ș𝒚𝒅 đ‘©đ’‚đ’“đ’“đ’†đ’•đ’•✨ the singer-songwriter, musician, painter, co-founder and leader of the historic band đ‘·đ’Šđ’đ’Œ 𝑭𝒍𝒐𝒚𝒅, who would have been 77 years old today.

📍đ‘č𝒐𝒈𝒆𝒓 đ‘Č𝒆𝒊𝒕𝒉 đ‘©đ’‚đ’“đ’“đ’†đ’• was born January 6, 1946 in Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, United Kingdom.When he was a child, he played the piano, ukulele, banjo, and guitar. He also loved drawing and writing poetry and won awards for his poetry in high school. He formed a band called 𝑼𝒆𝒐𝒇𝒇 𝑮𝒐𝒕𝒕 𝒂𝒏𝒅 đ‘»đ’‰đ’† 𝑮𝒐𝒕𝒕𝒐𝒆𝒔, which was short-lived. Around that time, he was influenced by the Beatles and sang their songs at parties and picnics.

In London, đ‘ș𝒚𝒅 đ‘©đ’‚đ’“đ’“đ’†đ’•đ’• reconnected with đ‘č𝒐𝒈𝒆𝒓 đ‘Ÿđ’‚đ’•đ’†đ’“đ’”, his school friend from Cambridge. Waters had formed a band with đ‘č𝒊𝒄𝒉𝒂𝒓𝒅 đ‘Ÿđ’“đ’Šđ’ˆđ’‰đ’• and đ‘”đ’Šđ’„đ’Œ 𝑮𝒂𝒔𝒐𝒏, which was called The Sigma 6. When one of the members left, Barrett joined the band, which went through several name changes and was finally named đ‘·đ’Šđ’đ’Œ 𝑭𝒍𝒐𝒚𝒅 by Barrett in 1965, after two U.S. blues musicians, Pink Anderson and Floyd Council. In April 1968, Barrett was expelled from the band amid speculation about mental illness and his excessive use of psychedelic drugs. In 1996, Barrett was inducted into the đ‘č𝒐𝒄𝒌 𝒂𝒏𝒅 đ‘č𝒐𝒍𝒍 𝑯𝒂𝒍𝒍 𝒐𝒇 𝑭𝒂𝒎𝒆 as a member of đ‘·đ’Šđ’đ’Œ 𝑭𝒍𝒐𝒚𝒅. He died of pancreatic cancer in 2006.

Several artists have acknowledged đ‘ș𝒚𝒅 đ‘©đ’‚đ’“đ’“đ’†đ’•đ’•'s influence such as đ‘©đ’đ’–đ’“, đ‘·đ’†đ’“đ’† đ‘Œđ’ƒđ’–, 𝑮𝒂𝒓𝒄 đ‘©đ’đ’đ’‚đ’, đ‘»đ’‰đ’† 𝑭𝒍𝒂𝒎𝒊𝒏𝒈 𝑳𝒊𝒑𝒔 𝒂𝒏𝒅 𝒆𝒗𝒆𝒏 đ‘«đ’‚đ’—đ’Šđ’… đ‘©đ’đ’˜đ’Šđ’†.

đŸŽ€"For me, the first Pink Floyd album is a work of absolute genius. It's completely different from everything else they've done because by the time they get to write their second album, they kick out Syd Barrett, who started the band and who wrote all their songs, and then they become something else. What is great about this record is it sits on the border of garage rock from the 60s and psychedelia, you know, because essentially, Syd Barrett was very much inspired by the blues and it's a raw moment captured in time before psychedelia sort of ran away with itself (laughs). There's still like a real rough edge to it and you can really hear it on 'Lucifer Sam' and the guitars… there's no nice guitars, (laughs) but it don't have to be nice to be beautiful."

đ‘«đ’‚đ’“đ’Œ 𝑼𝒍𝒐𝒃𝒆 is an original song from đ‘ș𝒚𝒅 đ‘©đ’‚đ’“đ’“đ’†đ’•đ’•'s first solo album "đ‘»đ’‰đ’† 𝑮𝒂𝒅𝒄𝒂𝒑 𝑳𝒂𝒖𝒈𝒉𝒔" (1970) which was recorded at 𝑹𝒃𝒃𝒆𝒚 đ‘č𝒐𝒂𝒅 đ‘ș𝒕𝒖𝒅𝒊𝒐𝒔 on August 5, 1969 produced by đ‘·đ’Šđ’đ’Œ 𝑭𝒍𝒐𝒚𝒅 members đ‘«đ’‚đ’—đ’Šđ’… 𝑼𝒊𝒍𝒎𝒐𝒖𝒓 and đ‘č𝒐𝒈𝒆𝒓 đ‘Ÿđ’‚đ’•đ’†đ’“đ’”. It is a melancholic song that gives a glimpse of what đ‘ș𝒚𝒅 may have been feeling about his mental health, the lines,

đŸŽ€đ’đČ𝐝: Yes, very much. It would be terrific to do much more mood stuff. They're very pure, you know, the words...I feel I'm jabbering. I really think the whole thing is based on me being a guitarist and having done the last thing about two or three years ago in a group around England and Europe and The States, and then coming back and hardly having done anything, so I don't really know what to say. I feel, perhaps, I could be claimed as being redundant almost. I don't feel active, and that my public conscience is fully satisfied.

Michael Stipe followed friend and fellow musician Patti Smith on tour for two weeks in 1995. Two Times Intro is his intimate and evocative visual diary of her return to live performance, along with portraits of other cultural celebrities, such as Allen Ginsberg, who appeared with her.

The photos in the book feel more like a personal scrapbook than a typical photobook. The book also includes reproductions of Stipe's diary and cut-and-paste experiments with text, which is a method we already know from William Burroughs.

In 1980 Michael formed the band R.E.M. with three of his friends: drummer Bill Berry, guitarist Peter Buck and bassist Mike Mills.

R.E.M. was pivotal in the creation and development of the alternative rock genre.
AllMusic stated, "𝘙.𝘌.𝘔. 𝘼𝘱𝘳𝘬 đ˜”đ˜©đ˜Š đ˜±đ˜°đ˜Șđ˜Żđ˜” đ˜žđ˜©đ˜Šđ˜Ż đ˜±đ˜°đ˜Žđ˜”-đ˜±đ˜¶đ˜Żđ˜Ź đ˜”đ˜¶đ˜łđ˜Żđ˜Šđ˜„ đ˜Șđ˜Żđ˜”đ˜° đ˜ąđ˜­đ˜”đ˜Šđ˜łđ˜Żđ˜ąđ˜”đ˜Șđ˜·đ˜Š đ˜łđ˜°đ˜€đ˜Ź."

Stipe: “Yes, River died before we started making the record (Monster) and I went through a six month period where I just shut down and couldn’t write anything. That was really frustrating for me and the band, who were also grieving. We all knew him and loved him – but particularly for me, that friendship and relationship was like having a brother. It was the most profound loss that I’d had experienced at that point. We commenced with the record, we were almost at the end of it, and that’s when Kurt died. I can’t say that any of that thematically ties to where we were going with the record – except certainly on the song ‘Let Me In’.”

Mills: “The most direct song on the record is ‘Let Me In’. It’s the one song where there is no ironic distance. It’s exactly what it sounds like it is. It’s personal and real. That’s a song that came about because of what happened. It’s a direct response to losing a friend.”

About the music and legacy of R.E.M. I could write for a very long time.
R.E.M. released a total of 15 highly successful albums and amicably broke up in 2011 after selling more than 90 million records worldwide and becoming one of the best-selling music groups in the world.

It's been 20 years since I announced to the world that I was queer – and that I had found the strength and the voice to say that, and to move forward with my life as a completely out, publicly queer individual. .../.../

For the promotion of our next album, Monster, and its world tour, I decided to publicly announce my sexuality. I said simply that I had enjoyed sex with men and women my entire adult life. It was a simple fact, and I’m happy I announced it..../.../

In 1994, most people had a largely binary perception of sexuality – the message was complicated for them. I am thrilled to see how much this has changed in those 20 years. The 21st century has provided all of us, recent generations particularly, with a clearer idea of the breadth of fluidity with which sexuality and identity presents itself in each individual. Gender identification, and the panoply of sexuality and identity are now topics that are more easily and more widely discussed, debated and talked about openly. It’s thrilling to see progressive change shift perceptions so quickly.

What I feel we have arrived at with all this, is that queerness – as I am happy to call an all-embracing, foundational tenet – is really a state of mind brought about by an understanding: it is understanding difference, accepting your own truth, desire and identity, and lovely, lovely choice. It is the final, completely obvious contemporary acceptance and understanding that this enormous world of beauty, sexuality, identity, lust, feeling, excitement, and love isn’t just black and white, or simple, at all – it is literally every shade and gradation of the rainbow. It doesn’t just lie in one of two camps. It includes accepting and supporting positions that you may not even completely understand; and to arrive at that conviction is so, so beautiful, and to quote my great friend Casey Legler: “Fierce!”
