Song of The Day

Today's selection should be pretty obvious.

It's "Sunday Bloody Sunday" from War (1983)

Thoughts: It seems almost too appropriate that the song that opens an album called War should be loud and bombastic as "Sunday Bloody Sunday". Indeed, the steady drum beat is what stands out always in my mind. The graphic lyrics signify the entrance of Bono and the band's into the foray of uniting anthems that call to mind the sort of world causes they have been championing for 20 years. On top of that, it's a downright enjoyable, head-banging kind of song that I just love every time it comes on. There are just no words that could adequately describe it.

And it's true we are immune.
When fact is fiction and T.V. is reality,
And today the millions cry,
We eat and drink while tomorrow they die.
The real battle just begun.
To claim the victory Jesus won,
On a Sunday bloody Sunday,
Sunday bloody Sunday.

Happy Easter, everyone!
