No Big Loser

In response to a minor controversy... At first it was difficult and overwhelming, then I realized it was one song, and free at that, so I just chose. The song I downloaded with your generous code is R.E.M.’s ‘First We Take Manhattan’ (LP version) off of the Drive single. First, I decided to download an R.E.M. song because they are one of my all-time favorites and I definitely needed to narrow down the selection. Then I chose this song because I don’t have it and because it is a whopping six minutes and four seconds long. More bang for your (yes, your) buck. Thanks again!


Glad we finally got that figured out. Enjoy the Cohen cover, and you’re no longer Veruca in my book. – Andrew Womack
