Yeah, even though critics hate it, I'd say this is one of their best

One of the best alt bands ever. Many critics have rated this song as one of the worst songs ever made but I still like it. Even at their worst, R.E.M still sounds amazing.

You have planted many many seeds brother. Hope another album that waters them is in the works.

A mix between REM and B52s

OK, again I must say, I love this song. Heard it shopping for groceries and just about started singing out load. I did skip and bob a bit down the soda isle.

This song makes me think of my kids, their smiling happy faces beaming nothing but love and happieness. Every child deserves as much. Every adult should find something that will bring them back to such a place. Even if it is only for a little while. Great song.

REM's version of this song on Sesame Street is a joy to watch.

Can't help feeling good listening to this song

My take is that REM is parodying upbeat pop songs, but they just can't make it BAD even when they try. I love this song!
