"Cant Get There from Here" or "Can't Get There from Here", was the first single released by R.E.M. from its third studio album Fables of the Reconstruction in 1985. The song failed to chart on either the Billboard Hot 100 (but did manage to peak at #10 on the Bubbling Under Hot 100 Singles) or UK Singles Charts, but did sneak into the Canadian top 100, peaking at #91. It was the only lead single that failed to chart from an R.E.M. studio album in the United States until "Leaving New York" in 2004. It was re-released in 2006 on a compilation disc, And I Feel Fine... The Best of the I.R.S. Years 1982-1987.
It was the first R.E.M. song to feature a horn section.
