Song #447: "Radio Free Europe"--R.E.M. (1981)
Released first in 1981 (I never heard it that year), but re-recorded and re-released two years later, this is the first hit for R.E.M. Did you know that the '81 recording session was in Winston-Salem, North Carolina? Neither did I. :)
Wasn't much of a fan of their music once they became wildly popular later in the decade, but loved, loved, loved this song in its second incarnation in 1983.
