From 1994's 'Monster'
From the snapping fingers and pretty piano at the song's onset, to the heart-wrenching guitar solo in the middle and finally the slow fade out accented by Michael Stipe's falsetto, 'Tongue' is an over-all sensory thrill. The song may or may not be erotic in nature (it was rumored to be about a certain sexual act), but it touches nerves regardless.
"Dont lay that stuff all over me/It crawls all over/All over me/Call my name, here I come," Stipe sings.
'Tongue' is all at once romantic and sad. The delicate ivories and slight tambourine move the song along at a pleasant and graceful tempo, while Stipe emits sighs that could be your own.
