I don’t care what anyone else says, or how many times this song has been made fun of in movies, it’s a damn good song. It’s the declaration of a shared human emotion. Hopelessness. Nothingness.
I remember in seventh grade, this “geeky” kid Adrian used to sometimes wear an R.E.M. tour shirt that said “Everybody Hurts” on the back. I think that was before we had emo music, but it was pretty bold of him to declare to the entire school that he was in pain. I bet he works for Google now.
Do you relate to this song? Or do you think it’s cheesy? What other songs do you listen to when “you think you’ve had enough…”?
I’m feeling this one.
