Next week Rocksmith brings some modern classics from a band that we love(d), including a sad song that we can all relate to, sometimes.
That’s right, it appears that next week’s Rocksmith 2014 DLC is from the band that my father dubs “Really Embarrassing Music”! Paul’s tweet hints at the inclusion of hit singles Everybody Hurts and perhaps The One I Love. What other hits could be included in this hypothetical five pack? Let’s see…
Hmm… A sad song that we can all relate to, sometimes, you say, well that’s gotta be every angsty misunderstood teenager’s anthem Everybody Hurts!
It’s the End of the World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine)
Alright, so maybe this song is better suited for vocals, but come on! It’s classic R.E.M.!
Man on the Moon
I’m just going to come out and say it, this is my favourite R.E.M. song. It’s such a lovely song and I’m really pulling for it to make the cut! I mean, what a fantastic acoustic line…
If Man on the Moon is my favourite R.E.M. cut, then this is easily number two. It’s just such a fun song and I can’t help but get happy when I hear it!
What’s the Frequency, Kenneth?
Talk about great 90s guitar, eh! Here we have one of those classic fuzzed out guitar riffs that would be perfect in any guitar player’s arsenal.
Of course, there are so many more great R.E.M. songs, like Superman, Driver 8, The One I Love, King of Birds, Orange Crush, Shiny Happy People, and so many more. It’s really hard to narrow it down to just five picks! What songs are you hoping for? Tell us in the comments!
