Bingo Hand Job




I had meant to post this song last month when I was doing the acoustic b-sides series, but due to vacation and being preoccupied with other things, I didn't. So I'm extending the series by a week. R.E.M. knocked out this impromptu version of Suzanne Vega's "Tom's Diner" during an acoustic show at the Borderline in London with Billy Bragg in March of 1991. Some of the references are a bit dated now, but still pretty damn funny. Originally released on the Near Wild Heaven single, it saw a wider release later that year on the Tom's Album compilation. For that project, it was retitled "Tom's ?" and credited to Bingo Hand Job.
