Oh My Ticky Ticker!

Aaaaaah! This is what we’ll be deprived of this summer! Messrs Michael Stipe, Peter Buck, Mike Mills, and of course Scott McCaughey and Bill Rieflin, performing live! Here’s a video of R.E.M. performing the song “Oh My Heart” off their latest album Collapse Into Now, courtesy of Stereogum. Love Scott’s accordion! And Mike looks… meow! (And Michael needs to lose the beard, seriously.)

R.E.M. – “Oh My Heart” Video (Live In Studio) from stereogum on Vimeo.

UPDATE: And here’s official lyrics video for “Uberlin”, finally embeddable courtesy of R.E.M.’s Youtube channel!

*Hey, now, comb your hair and off to work!*

    This is wonderful! Just seeing the commitment to the music from each of them is inspiring. DAMN,they had better not break up!!!!! On a completely sexist note…..Mike has such an adorable sexiness. Michael does need to lose the beard…can’t see those beautiful cupid’s bow lips under all that growth, and I prefer Peter’s dark, good looks without the long hair, but hey…I they are all so handsome in their maturity. Now if they would only reconsider the tour thing…..

    Ah Ivana, I was just about to send you the link to that video and the Stereogum site. You were faster! big grin big grin big grin

    I’m still having a fan-freakout over this video – MOARRRR please!!!
    Oh My Heart is so breathtaking, especially here… and listen to Mike here in this live version… his singing is so sweet and tender, so soulful, so emotional. Wow.

    Um, now for something [completely] different… Could somebody please tell me why on Vimeo, in the box “About this video” on the right with the info about the source video, it always says “Please join or log in to download”, but when I eventually log in, all I get is “Sorry, not available for download.”?? This annoys and bums me out! The file I get via DownloadHelper is much smaller. They gotta be kidding the users…

  3. Ivana Says:

    The file I got via Firefox download helper is 25.9 MB in size, and pretty good quality too. Do you want it? happy

  4. Kirsten Says:

    happy Thanks very much, but the file I have is the same size winking

    I would have wanted to get what is obviously the source file, like it says under “About this video” the version with resolution 640×360 and 70.51MB in size. But they don’t let this be downloaded, so it seems we have to be satisfied with what we got – better than no video i dont know winking

  5. Linda Says:

    OKAY….The technically-challenged among us have no idea what you are talking about! LOL…I just like what I saw. GOD..I am hopeless in the computer department. crying Even with my son’s help…….oh well. As long as I can see the videos, Thank you Ivana.

  6. Linda Says:

    AND ONCE AGAIN……..A double post…see what I mean?? So Sorry.laughing

  7. Ivana Says:

    Don’t worry Linda, double posts are usually a result of a server glitch, it’s not your fault.

    As for techy stuff that we were talking about, it’s just that Kirsten needs high quality videos in order to make HQ screencaps to be used for… well you’ll see the results soon!

    Another alternative survey tool is Rational Survey. They have a free version that has a lot of these competitors beat.
