Actually, that song is a mean spirited "I'll take you for granted and I'm proud of it." song. rather than a song about unrequited love.

But REM does have songs about unrequited love.




One of the very few Miles Davis songs that actually has lyrics.


Here's one not in English but I'll supply at translation on what it says.


It's a dire situation
I lost my mind completely
Because every single time I see her on the streets
She just brings me to me knees

It's not that she looks my way
It's more about how she walks
And as I watch her strut around
My head is about to explode

Perhaps, I should walk up to her and start a conversation
And let nature take its course
But she doesn't even know that I'm out there
Even though that's everything I was hoping for

And I'm behaving like a clown
As I'm trying to get her attention
I'm making everybody laugh
as I'm dying inside

She doesn't see me
She doesn't hear me
She doesn't want me
She doesn't know me

So is this love?
I never understood that
It's just a dire situation
A very dire situation indeed.

Now this is a topic to sink your teeth into: make believe love, so much safer than actually taking the actual ride.

In my mind, Surrealistic Pillow is one of the greatest albums ever made.
I think so too. CBTM is a great song. So is "Today", and Marty Balin was a terrific singer.

Messrs. Kantner and Kaukonen are seriously good musicians all around, and Grace Slick....

All I see is drainin' me. I think I'll put my Surrealistic Pillow CD in the changer in my truck. Haven't heard it in a while.
