Musical Interlude: Drive (1992)

It took R. E. M. 2 days to shoot the video for "Drive", the first single from their 1992 CD, "Automatic For The People". The Georgia-based band had crossed into the mainstream at the end of their run with IRS Records 5 years earlier with the release of "Document", and thus had become a staple of Top 40 radio as well as album-oriented rock (AOR) and college stations.

So if you've ever wondered why people find body-surfing to be so cool, maybe this video is partially to blame.........
