PartyTearsFew's current selection is:
Man On The Moon
by R.E.M.
Imagine my surprise when I discovered this hadn't been selected for #MoonWeek
Very good, yeah, (yeah, yeah, yeah) just like that ...

It has been selected before, by Salvadore in 2016, I won't tag him as I'll get on his nerves (it'd be the fourth time). That video is not around now so here it is again.

Here's Mike Mills talking to NME about the song, the inspiration behind the music, video and lyrics and the impact of Andy Kauffman - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aZJOyb1K5mw

The song was originally an instrumental and the lyrics were written by Stipe independently of the music, which had no prior association with Kauffman. The song invokes the conspiracy theories surrounding the Moon landing and Elvis Presley as an indirect nod to the persistent rumours that Kauffman faked his own death. (Wiki)
