R.E.M.'s "Imitation of Life" is one of their great pop songs but, like most of their stream-of-consciousness ditty's, it's hard to figure out just what they're driving at sometimes. I'm not a big fan of videos, but this is one of my all-time favorites. It's about twenty seconds of the same scene played forward, then backward, then forward again with a lot of panning and zooming on selected parts.
