Song of The Day

Today's selection is

"Two Hearts Beat as One" from War (1983)

Thoughts: I always love how bombastic the chorus is and how Bono reaches back and shouts it, while still making it sound like beautiful music. I love how bouncy the entire song is. It's so simplistic in its structure, jumping from verse to verse with just the title as the chorus. That being said, the problem remains that it's not an entirely memorable tune nor does it really stand out from the rest of the album's tracks. The instrumentation doesn't pull itself apart from the vocals like other memorable tunes from U2. The vocals themselves are very solid and cry of desperation but I wanted something more from the instruments backing the vocals. They seem to just disappear into the background or take a deference to the singing.
