R.E.M.'s Losing My Religion isn't actually about religion

R.E.M.'s "Losing My Religion" is not actually about... religion.  It is one of my favorite pieces of art from the band.  I'm not sure if they were the first alternative rock bands to put a mandolin on one of their songs, but I remember being taken a back by the innovation and instrumentation of this song.  It's been a long time since they wrote and recorded this, but when they talk about this song you can almost FEEL each band member going back in time to when they recorded it.
