Music Monday – Shiny Happy People by R.E.M

musicmonday

 

Music Monday is a meme created and hosted by Drew@TheTattooedBookGeek as an opportunity to share a favourite music video.

This week I’m sharing a video from 1991, Shiny Happy People by R.E.M, with guest vocalist Kate Pierson, from the B52s. Not a bad way to start a Monday. 😉

Shiny happy people laughing

Meet me in the crowd, people, people
Throw your love around, love me, love me
Take it into town, happy, happy
Put it in the ground where the flowers grow
Gold and silver shine

Shiny happy people holding hands
Shiny happy people holding hands
Shiny happy people laughing

Everyone around, love them, love them
Put it in your hands, take it, take it
There’s no time to cry, happy, happy
Put it in your heart where tomorrow shines
Gold and silver shine

Shiny happy people holding hands
Shiny happy people holding hands
Shiny happy people laughing

Whoa, here we go

Shiny happy people holding hands
Shiny happy people holding hands
Shiny happy people laughing

Shiny happy people holding hands
Shiny happy people holding hands
Shiny happy people laughing

Shiny happy people holding hands
Shiny happy people holding hands
Shiny happy people laughing

Shiny happy people holding hands
People, happy people
People

    I like this one, but it doesn’t really match the rest of REM’s songs, which is maybe why people don’t like it. Certainly it’s not on the ‘best of’ compilation I have…
