The One I Love, R.E.M. 1987


Recommended Posts

"The One I Love" is a song by American alternative rock band R.E.M. It was released on the band's fifth full-length studio album, Document, and also as a 7" vinyl single in 1987.

In March 2005, Q magazine placed "The One I Love" at No. 57 in its list of the 100 Greatest Guitar Tracks. In 2012, Slant Magazine listed the song as the 38th best single of the 1980s.

This song is dedicated to all the girls I've loved before.
Of course to my lovely wife, Mimi, most especially!!!

You have heard the lyrics to that song right. Its not a love song. Its an Anti-love song.

If you are saying this about the one you love, you may not love them:

A simple prop to occupy my time

And 

Another prop has occupied my time

Hi Sgt. Pepper,

Thanks for the correction, on my part.

Initially, I thought this was a love song.  Obviously, not a very good one.

Thank you so much!

Rene

It is a good song. That was the album that was it for me with REM. Their corny End Of The World song is so corny.
