I was listening to REM this morning and had a sudden fond memory of my youngest brother singing along to Green when I became obsessed with it as a teenager. He was 7 and had trouble with some of the lyrics.
Michael Stipe [Pop Song 89]: Should we talk about the weather? hi, hi, hi. Should we talk about the government? hi, hi, hi.
Paul [dancing around the dining room table, probably with a recent buzz cut]: Shouldn’t talk about the weather. ay, yi yi. Shouldn’t talk about the weatherman. ay, yi yi.
