    The very first R.E.M. song I had heard. Still one of the faves.

    @clearskies: Dammit! Just like your typical country song: always an unhappy ending (well, the dog usually lives, at least)

    I bought this album the day it came out. I immediately LOVED this track. It has been the theme song to I-don't-know-how-many situations my friends and I have lived through since.

    Stupid memory---I recall driving home drunk (yeah, I know...dumb). Made it home at about 2:00 AM and was about to turn off the car when this song came on. It seemed like a good idea at the time, but I drove around the neighborhood blaring this song as loud as I could, drunk off my ass. Bad song, evil song...good song when you are drunk. Made it home safely, though :)

    I love this song. I always enjoy revisiting this one. Does anyone know if it was successful - in as much as did she go back to Rockville?

    If I lived hundreds and hundreds of years and decided to create a compilation that has one song per century, this song would be the one for 20th. Or maybe it would compete with Eye of the Tiger, but I sure like this one better.

    Ah, I know this song is much older, but this takes me back to a very happy time in 1993.

    "Peter Buck has stated that the song was originally performed in a punk/thrash style", haha. i'd love to hear that.

    Haha, this is so country. Great track still and live especially with Mike.

    I love this song. But the live version where Mike sings is better.

    Scarboro, it is Stipe singing, although it was Mill's girlfriend who was going back to Rockville. I'd say Near Wild Heaven is the best with Mills in lead vocals. I think Mills provides such amazing harmonies to Stipe's vocals.

    I used to live by Rockville. "You'll wind up in some factory that's full time, filled, with nowhere left to go." HA! There was nothing industrial about that town.
