Daily Boom 90's Nostalgia: R.E.M. - 'Losing My Religion'

Image result for REM

"That's me in the corner
That's me in the spotlight

Losing my religion

Trying to keep up with you
And I don't know if I can do it
Oh no I've said too much
I haven't said enough"

If you're an R.E.M. fan, "Losing My Religion" probably helped you to become one. Back in 1991 the Indie alternative band had a huge underground following but it was this unexpected hit that made them a mainstream sensation. The video went a long way in helping to boost the band as it was nominated for numerous awards. "Losing My Religion" was also nominated for several Grammy's.

You know how at different times certain songs really click with whatever you have going on in your personal life? Well when this first came out I was dealing with a bunch of religious conflicts within my family and so it just hit a really deep nerve for me. Looking back so many years later the video is strikingly beautiful, don't you think?
