Song of the Day

Today's selection is

"Angel of Harlem" from Rattle and Hum (1988)

Thoughts: Well, now that I've heard the song, I'm so glad I did this with the community. I have to say that it has to be one of the happiest-sounding U2 songs I've heard in a long time. It just doesn't feel like typical U2. One of the commentators was right: there is a rockabilly feel to the song. Like, it's the perfect song to play at a jukebox in the middle of a bar with a dance floor so you could just get your boogie on. It sounds like the perfect road trip song, too. The vocals have Bono seeming to just stride along confidently with the accompianment. There's a sort of joyous overall feeling to the song that makes it immediately one of my favorites.

For those of you catching up, this is the third part of an ongoing series of daily voting on songs from the extensive U2 canon. I do not know when I will stop this...

First was "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For", then "New Year's Day" yesterday. I will put the previous day's song on the next entry for the Song of The Day from now on.
