Losing My Religion venne rilasciato dai Rem nel 1991 come primo singolo dal loro album Out Of Time, ottenendo più successo di quanto i Rem avessero sperato, grazie ad una massiccia riproposizione in radio e specialmente in video. Lo stesso anno valse loro ben 2 Grammy Awards, un per la Miglior Performance Pop di un gruppo e l’altro per il Miglior Video in Versione Breve.
La canzone è opera del chitarrista Peter Buck, il quale la compose mentre stava guardando la televisione con in mano un mandolino appena acquistato, cercando in qualche modo di impararlo da solo. Il riff della canzone è infatti eseguito proprio col mandolino. Bisogna dire che il grande successo di pubblico di Losing My Religion è stato accompagnato da un altrettanto notevole plauso della critica, guadagnando anche il 169esimo posto tra le 500 canzoni più belle di tutti i tempi del magazine Rolling Stone.

Am            Em
Oh life    is bigger,    it's bigger than you.
Am                              Em
And you are not me, the lengths that I will go to.
Am
The distance in your eyes.
Em                      Dm                            G
Oh no, I've said     too    much, I've said enough.

#Guitar pass#

Am                  Em
That's me in the corner,    That's me in the spot light,
Am           Em
Losing my religion.    Trying to keep up with you.
Am
And I don't know if I can do it.
Em                      Dm                                 G
Oh no, I've said     too    much, I haven't said enough.

#You do the intro note here#

F
I thought that I heard you laughing.
F                G         Am
I thought that I heard you sing.
F                      G   Am    G(II)
I think I thought I saw you try.

#Guitar pass#

Am
Every whisper,
Em                                 Am
Every waking hour, I'm choosing my confessions.
Em
Trying to keep eye on you.
Am
Like a hurt lost and blinded fool, fool.
Em                            Dm                G
Oh no, I've said too much.    I said enough.

#Guitar pass#

Am               Em
Consider this,    consider this hint of the century.
Am                Em
Consider this,    the slip, that brought me to my knees pale.
Am                               Em
What if all these fantasies come    flaming aground.
Dm       G
Now I've said too much.
