REM, Music + Monday… well how about Tuneful Tuesday?

rem watercolorI don’t know why but for as long as I can remember, ever since I was little and cranked up The Carpenters on the AM radio, I have had a soft spot for a great sad song. Whenever I hear this song, I get a kick to the gut. Not much can get to me like a melancholy Michael Stipe, a mandolin & harpsichord.
