Funny: R.E.M.
  • "Voice of Harold", which features Michael Stipe singing the liner notes to a Gospel album over the backing track of "7 Chinese Bros."
  • Chances are you experienced the joy of hearing It's the End of the World As We Know It play on the radio (or in Rock Band due to a recent DLC pack) while your friends struggle to sing along with the lyrics that aren't the song title.
  • As said in the Beam Me Up, Scotty! entry on the main page, "What's the Frequency, Kenneth?" got its title from an incident involving Dan Rather being attacked by someone, who kept shouting (some form of) the phrase as he was beating the veteran newsman. Now watch Dan Rather performing the song with them in 1995. You can't say the man has no sense of humor.
  • Late in The Sidewinder Sleeps Tonite Michael Stipe can be heard audibly trying to hold back his laughter during the chorus, due to his perceived mispronunciation of the word "Seuss" (he thought he was saying "Dr. Zeus"). Made even funnier by the fact that it makes the already incomprehensible chorus even harder to understand.
  • In the CD booklet for Part Lies, Part Heart, Part Truth, Part Garbage as Stipe is discussing the music video for Imitation of Life he points out that holding a monkey or an orangutang in a music video was one of Peter Buck's life wishes.
  • Michael Stipe's dancing in the music video for Imitation of Life.
