Michael Stipe Sings “Pale Blue Eyes” In Laura Levine Film

This is quite beautiful. The photographer Laura Levine shot Super-8 footage for a still unreleased film, “Just Like A Movie,” in 1983. Here’s Michael Stipe singing “Pale Blue Eyes.”

On R.E.M.’s remhq website, Laura Levine writes:

“it’s an excerpt from the original unreleased Super-8 film “Just Like a Movie.” With the sad news about Lou Reed’s passing last week, it seemed the right time to share this particular scene, of Michael singing “Pale Blue Eyes” by the railroad tracks. (The song itself was recorded earlier that day on a Walkman, with Matthew Sweet on guitar). Jeremy Ayers makes a magical appearance as Puddlefoot.”

Thanks remhq!
