If you’re stuck at work for the holidays and reading this, you’re probably as bored with the slow news as we are.

But, at least, this isolated vocal track from R.E.M‘s “Losing My Religion” is interesting enough to amuse you for a few minutes.

The classic pop song becomes eerie, stripped down, and almost macabre.

The emotional context of the song resonates even more sans instruments and Michael Stipe‘s sublime vocals are gorgeous without the background of “heavenly instruments.”

Listen below.
