R.E.M. – Losing My Religion


Album: Out of Time.
Released: February 19, 1991


Bill Berry – drums, percussion
Peter Buck – electric guitar, mandolin
Mike Mills – bass guitar, backing vocals, keyboards and arrangement
Michael Stipe – lead vocals
Additional musician: Peter Holsapple – acoustic guitar

The lyric comes from an old Southern colloquialism meaning that something so upsetting has happened “that you might lose your religion.” Stipe used that old-time notion as a metaphor for unrequited love, a different kind of faith, one he describes in painfully tentative terms: “holding back, then reaching forward, then pulling back again, then reaching forward again.”
