Everybody Hurts - R.E.M.
Everybody Hurts

Everybody Hurts is a song by R.E.M., originally released on the band's 1992 album Automatic for the People and was also released as a single in 1993. It peaked at No. 29 on the Billboard Hot 100, No. 7 on the UK Singles Chart and No. 3 on the French Singles Chart

Much of the song was written by drummer Bill Berry, although as R.E.M. shares songwriting credits among its members, it is unknown how much he actually wrote. Berry did not drum on the song—a Univox drum machine took his place—but he was responsible for the sampling of the drum pattern on the track. The string arrangement was written by Led Zeppelin bassist John Paul Jones.
