R.E.M. Identified as ‘Shiny Satisfied People’ 1 of Their The very least Preferred Songs

R.E.M. frontman Michael Stipe wrote “Shiny Content People” in section to satirize pop music’s ability to entertain. Although the underlying themes of the lyrics are a great deal more really serious. But to most of the public, it was simply a pleasant earworm of a track that grew to become just one of the band’s scarce mainstream hits. The band has since gone on record chatting about “Shiny Joyful People” and its standard reception in less than glowing phrases. 

‘Shiny Content People’ was a major strike for R.E.M.

“Shiny Pleased People” is the next one from R.E.M.’s seventh album, Out of Time. It was not the most important music related with the album. That title belongs to “Losing My Religion.” But it was continue to extremely common, peaking at No. 10 on the U.S. Billboard charts.
