Song of The Day @ 12:36 pm

hue126:
I'm currently feelin: confused confused
I'm currently hearin: Orbital, "Halcyon and On and On"

Today's selection is

"Discotheque" from Pop (1997)

Thoughts: Now, don't shoot me, but I have not heard this song before. I mentioned in a comment on a previous post (I believe it was "Lemon" from Zooropa) that I have not heard certain albums in the U2 canon and Pop is one of them.

I think all of "Pop" got a bad rap when it was released. Its a solid, if different album. Discotheque, in specific, rocks pretty well while being very glittery pop-a-licious.

i really like this song, with the only exception to the ending (repeating of discotheque). its fun to sing along to and i love fast u2 songs, i think people dont give this song a lot of credit, but thats only the people i know.

Yeah, missing the "boom cha"'s on the new mix makes it just not as much fun.

And it's got one of the funniest videos ever!

I think Pop has become my favorite album by U2. I listened to it 2 times today...it's wonderful. Discotheque, while not my favorite song from the CD, is a great song. It's a U2 song that you can actually dance to, and not look like a complete idiot. I love the little riff in this song, right after the first verse. Personally, I like it so much that I really like the New Mix on the best of 1990-2000 better than the original. ^_^

Okay, I'm done now.

Brilliant song, rocks my socks. I actually hated it in 1997, but I wasn't a U2 fan back then... once I became a U2 fan I noticed how awesome it actually is. :)  The guitar riff is just excellent, and it's *great* to sing along with - I also can't help dancing to it. Absolutely hilarious video too.

The "new mix" on the Best Of is an absolute disgrace and should be destroyed. How on *earth* can you have Discotheque without the Boom Cha's?!

I don't care what people say but Discotheque is such an awesome song. It makes me dance in my chair. I know. I'm weird.

I LOVE "Discotheque"

Loved it when it first came out in 1997 (has it been eight years already!), and love it to this day. Pop is actually my second favorite album after Achtung Baby.

Discoteque is awesome!! I love the dance thing. And the line "You hurt for it, work for it: Love. But you don't ever show it." describes me perfectly!!

And I love the Hexidecimal Mix on Best of!!! It rocks me 10 times better than the other- tho I do miss the boom-chas. But that warped screech of music right after the high note makes me HOT!!
