Imitation Of Life – Song Of The Day

Imitation Of Life

Although R.E.M‘s “Imitation Of Life” reached the Top 10 in the UK and got to number 1 in Japan, it didn’t exactly rock the US too much. The song did make it onto the band’s best of album In Time: The Best Of R.E.M 1988-2003, though. And rightly so. Named after the movie of the same name, the song is mostly remembered for its random yet completely hypnotizing music video which pans and scans around a busy party scene, zooming in and out of various off-beat goings on in what’s essentially a repeated 20 seconds loop.
