R.E.M. – Strange Currencies

R.E.M. released their “Monster” album in 1994. it was a return to an edgier sound, with simple rock’n’roll guitars and lots of attitude. here’s one of my favourite songs off that album.
composed by berry/buck/mills/stipe, produced by scott litt and R.E.M.

—Strange Currencies—
I don’t know why you’re mean to me
when I call on the telephone.
and I don’t know what you mean to me
but I want to turn you on, turn you up, figure you out, I want to take you on

These words, “You will be mine.”
These words, “You will be mine.” all the time.

now fool might be my middle name
But I’d be foolish not to say
I’m going to make whatever it takes,
ring you up, call you down, sign your name, secret love,
make it rhyme, take you in, and make you mine.

These words, “You will be mine.”
These words, “You will be mine.” all the time. oh

I tripped and fell.
did I fall.
What I want to feel, I want to feel it now

You know with love come strange currencies
and here is my appeal:

I need a chance, a second chance, a third chance, a fourth chance,
a word, a signal, a nod, a little breath
just to fool myself, to catch myself, to make it real, real

These words, “You will be mine”
These words, “You will be mine.”
all the time. oh

These words, “You will be mine.”
These words, they haunt me, hunt me down,
catch in my throat, make me pray,
say, this love’s confines, oh

    All these years I thought the intro lyrics were"I dont know why you're mean to me,when I call on the telephone " Stipe wouldn't mind he doesn't think lyrics are important its all in the feelings of emotions the song releases through the speakers ✌

  2. del635

    I think this song is not about love really but a fantasy about a stranger, you know, that beautiful girl you see commuting or somewhere everyday but are to afraid to talk to.
