R.E.M Music videos

23 Jan

It was some surprise for me to find out that the music videos to  two of R.E.M’s most well-known singles from the 90’s have a somewhat psychedelic style to them.

Both of them have hallucinatory qualities to them, but I especially like how the beautiful video for “Losing My Religion” has the feeling that it takes place inside someone’s mind. The things that the imagery does to the watcher’s imagination… I guess that’s the sort of thing that Terrence McKenna said about it that “There is a transcendental dimension beyond language…”.

I would also recommend to watch them without the sound, especially the first one. The images can speak for themselves.
