Music Video of the Day: Turn You Inside-Out by R.E.M. (1989, directed by James Herbert)


Sometimes, I feel like R.E.M. is the forgotten great band of the 80s and 90s.  They produced hit after hit and their songs were both catchy and intelligent but, after the band called it quits in 2011, it’s almost as if people have forgotten about just how great they were.  Maybe it’s because they were so catchy and radio-friendly that people seem to overlook the fact that their music epitomized two decades.

Turn You Inside-Out is one of my favorite R.E.M. songs.  The video is simple but effective.  Michael Stipe gets to show off his moves.  This video was directed by painter and filmmaker James Herbert.  This was the ninth video that he directed for R.E.M.  Sometimes a video director and a band just click and that appears to be the case with R.E.M. and Herbert.

Enjoy!
