Draggin’ the Line

I like this REM cover of the 1971 hit by Tommy James.  It’s fairly true to the original, but also clearly an REM song.

Full lyrics HERE.



The music isn’t really my thing, and it may not be yours either, but it’s worth watching at least a little of the video to see the girl on the box.

Her dancing provides the percussion:  the box is the drum, her high-heels the drumsticks.

It’s mesmerizing and wonderful.
