This was featured in the 2001 movie Vanilla Sky, starring Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz. It was directed by Cameron Crowe.
R.E.M. wrote this in the early '80s and considered it for their album Murmur. They occasionally played it live, but never released it on an album until the Vanilla Sky soundtrack.
Peter Buck recalled in the liner notes for the compilation In Time: "This is by far the oldest song on this set. It was written in 1979 by Michael and me before we had even met Bill and Mike. We played it at every show until about 1982. I don't know why we never recorded it; maybe we thought it was kind of juvenile.
"Twenty years later, when asked to contribute a song to the Vanilla Sky soundtrack with about eight days notice, it no longer seemed quite so naive. We recorded it in three hours prior to a show in Seattle, and quite consciously tried to record it as we would have in 1982."
