"The Unforgettable Fire" from The Unforgettable Fire (1984)
Thoughts: Oh, what a beautiful, soulful song this one is. The nice little detail in the song are the little breaths that come along with the accompianment. Adds a sort of urgency and passion to the entire song. There's a sadness that takes hold of the verses in the song and then Bono jumps into some semblance of optimism in the chorus. I love how light the guitar is as it is opposed by the hard synthesizer rhythm. The guitar feels like it's floating in mid-air and the synthesizer seems to bring the guitar back to Earth. There's a dreamy quality to the song that makes it easy to listen to. And it ends on just a slow fade out, which adds to its sort of magical quality.
