Playlist: All 282 of R.E.M.’s songs, ranked — minus the 38 that aren’t on Spotify

Now that we’ve unveiled the results of our latest Slicing Up Eyeballs readers poll — one that ranks 282 songs recorded by R.E.M. — it seems like a good excuse to put that data to good use. Namely, we’ve thrown together a Spotify playlist of that ranked countdown. Well, minus the 38 songs that aren’t on the streaming service (so much for those Complete Rarities sets).

    So pleased to see Harbourcoat ranked so that tune. Wish Wendell Gee was higher but you can’t win them all. Hard to quibble with the list just wish airport man was higher. Thanks for the hard work.
