Song of The Day

Today's selection is

"Gloria" from October (1981)

Thoughts: It really sounds like Bono and the band are trying to find their sound with this song. It doesn't always succeed. But I really like the Catholic-oriented lyrics. It shows that they were on the road to developing the sound and depth that would be a commercial and critical success in The Joshua Tree. But other than the rest of the band providing backing vocals at the end of the track (just singing "Gloria" over and over), there's nothing that's particularly standout on "Gloria".
