One of the greatest videos I still have ever seen to this date, coupled alongside a great song from a band that tried clinging onto the height of their 90s popularity only to be disbanded at the end.
I realize there was already a guitar-only version of this in the database, but not having the rest of the accompaniment of instruments was tragic, so it's one of the few I've seen that I've really wanted to ensure got the full band treatment. (Plus, there was a whole section of acoustic guitar that was missed in the middle break section in the other.) Nothing was used from the prior chart, so this is all from scratch.
Even though the video below does not show keys (was sick of always having the music video, video), it does indeed carry pro keys/keys with it (featuring the iconic intro at the beginning and the high-pitched synth break in the middle).
Two years later, we can finally enjoy more instruments to this great R.E.M. song. =-)
