R.E.M. – Shiny Happy People (US 12″ Promo)

A trio of short alternative takes of this R.E.M. track from  1991. I deliberately don’t mention they are “dance” mixes because they would ruin the song. No, these are alternative mixes which give a different take on this classic. Mixed by their producer Scott “The Louie” Litt. The sparse “Hip” mix really puts Stipe’s duet with Kate Pierson of the B-52’s to the front. The “Pop” mix grooves up the beats but is pretty similar to the single. The “Dance To The Music” is an attempt to be street with even some scratching on it; on a R.E.M. record !!! Great fun!!!

NEW LINK 2017!!!!


Sooo promo that the same tracks are on both sides!
