R.E.M. - Radio Free Europe

[Verse 1]
Decide yourself if radio's gonna stay
Reason, it could polish up the gray
Put that, put that, put that up your wall
That this isn't country at all

[Pre-Chorus 1]
Ray beam station
Beside yourself

[Verse 2]
Keep me out of country and the word
Deal the porch is leading us absurd
Push that, push that, push that to the hull
That this isn't nothing at all

[Pre-Chorus 2]
Straight off the boat
Where to go?

Callin' out in transit
Callin' out in transit
Radio Free Europe

"Radio Free Europe" is a post-punk song by American alternative rock band R.E.M. "Radio Free Europe" was released as R.E.M.'s debut single on the short-lived independent record label Hib-Tone in 1981. The song features "what were to become the trademark unintelligible lyrics which have distinguished R.E.M.'s work ever since."The single received critical acclaim, and its success earned the band a record deal with I.R.S. Records. R.E.M. re-recorded the song for its debut album Murmur (1983). The re-recording for I.R.S. became the group's first charting single, peaking at number 78 on the Billboard charts.
