“Imitation of Life” is a song by R.E.M., the first single released from the band’s 12th album, Reveal in 2001. The song peaked at #83 on the Billboard Hot 100 (but reached #22 on the U.S. Modern Rock list). It was the lowest chart of a lead single from an R.E.M. album in the United States since “Fall on Me” from Lifes Rich Pageant in 1986. The song did reach #6 on the UK Singles Charts, making it the eighth top 10 for the band in Britain. The song also became R.E.M.‘s first number-one single in Japan. The song was nominated for a 2002 Grammy Award for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals but lost to U2’s Stuck in a Moment You Can’t Get Out Of. Read on...
