Song of The Day

Today's selection is

"Beautiful Day" from All That You Can't Leave Behind (2000)

Thoughts: "Vertigo", yesterday's song, is a shorter, mirror version of this song. Since ATYCLB was the return to the classic U2 sound that they were famous for, it seemed natural they would open with this soaring anthem, as if to say, "Here we are, people. The U2 you know and love never left." Its endlessly catchy melody and chorus is the sort of thing that defines U2 singles: they are immediately catchy and stay that way for a long time. My personal favorite touch is the echo that the backing vocals provide during the chorus. I also like how the middle of the song seems to get the band a little rest before rising up again in another bombastic, rousing chorus. And the music video rules.

Of course, it has to be a beautiful day outside here in San Diego, but then, it's like this about 80 percent of the year.
