Last week's news that R.E.M. was breaking up got a lot of play for a band that a lot of people probably already thought was broken up. In my mind R.E.M. is responsible for one of the most popular mis-played wedding songs ever. Meaning, a song that sounds romantic, but isn't, namely "This One Goes out to the One I Love." But, in honor of their breakup, and all the great music they gave us over the years, we're happy to present the Top 5 R.E.M. songs that ARE wedding appropriate, and of course, five more that aren't.
