R.E.M. Man on the Moon versus Golden Earring Man in the Moon chorus

R.E.M.–Man on the Moon (1990)

Golden Earring–I’ll Make It All Up To You (Man in the Moon chorus) (1984)

It’s funny because I think the Golden Earring singer sounds particularly Michael Stipe-like on the I’ll Make It All Up To You chorus. It’s a neat potential coincidence–Golden Earring has a song with a particularly R.E.M-like chorus in 1984 then R.E.M. makes a song with a vaguely similar chorus in 1990, that’s pretty cool!
