Song of the Day: REM, “Shiny Happy People”

The one and only song I’ve sung at karaoke. Very badly. Very, very badly. On really good days, I greet my students by calling them shiny happy people. None of them get the reference.

One thought on “Song of the Day: REM, “Shiny Happy People”

  1. Everyone but Michael Stipe looks so pissed in that video; for some reason, that makes me chuckle. My only (drunken) karaoke experience was singing “It’s the End of the World as We Know It (and I Feel Fine)” at an Irish pub in Jackson, right before I moved to Athens. “Embarrass myself, get the hell out of there” seemed to have been my motto. (Awkward video evidence of the event: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=66s2C0C2iTw)
