R.E.M – Losing My Religion (album: Out of Time 1991)

This song is by REM. I remember when it first released. I was so amazed by this song and the video clip and everything, such a great song! The entire album is quite magnificent.

This song is about having a crush on someone and giving a few hints and not knowing if you are revelling too much or if he is interested at all or even if he noticed your existence. We all had our own crushes on someone at some point of our lives. From my experience, nothing comes out of it .if you are looking for clues from the other side then it’s never going to happen. I believe if you want someone or something, you just need to grab it, you have nothing to lose! It’s either yes or no , If you get a “yes” then it’s great , If you get a “No” then your Ego will be smashed for a day or two and then you’ll move on to the next crush. I made the first move on my Hubby, I found his number and gave him a call and that’s how our love story started. Life is too precious to be wasted on the wrong people! Check out this lovely 90’s hit...

Lyrics: Losing my Religion Lyrics

What’s this song about?

In the song, Michael Stipe sings the lines "That's me in the corner/That's me in the spotlight/Losing my religion". The phrase "losing my religion" is an expression from the southern region of the United States that means losing one's temper or civility, or "being at the end of one's rope." Stipe told The New York Times the song was about romantic expression. He told Q that "Losing My Religion" is about "someone who pines for someone else. It's unrequited love, what have you." Stipe compared the song's theme to "Every Breath You Take" by The Police, saying, "It's just a classic obsession pop song. I've always felt the best kinds of songs are the ones where anybody can listen to it, put themselves in it and say, 'Yeah, that's me.'(Wikipedia – Losing My Religion)
