R.E.Ms recent breakup didn’t really affect me, as they never featured greatly in my musical universe. Then I heard this, their final ever single, titled ‘We All Go Back to Where We Belong’, and I realized it was a huge shame they were over. I cannot remember the last time I heard a track that so quickly had an impact on me, and the video is stunning as well: a counterpoint to the super expensive, complicated videos I posted the other day, it’s just Kirsten Dunst reacting to the song. Black and white, simple and gorgeous.
“I can taste the ocean on your skin” is one of my favorite lyrics ever.
