I like this song: (Don’t Go Back To) Rockville

Maybe it’s the brackets in the title.  I like songs with a good use of brackets in the title.  Maybe it’s because you can hear virtually all the words unlike so many REM songs of the time.  Maybe it’s because it’s REM.  Maybe it’s because it has an air of defiant vulnerability.  Maybe it’s because the worst that can happen is “you’ll wind up in some factory” in some town where nobody says hello.  But, after that, the singer doesn’t really need you.  Not really.  Maybe because that’s bullshit.
