This R.E.M. video is so lame and cute at the same time that it never fails to warm my heart. Oh, and how awesome is that Kate Pierson Muppet (from the B-52s)? Quite, I'd say.
I realise it's a bit of a stretch to call this a 'classic', but to me it's a prime example of how an often too serious grown-up band can easily transform into a group of happy, enjoyable and entertaing guys once they embrace the idea of FUN. And isn't that what most great kid's music is all about?
