Song of The Day

Today's selection is

"Mysterious Ways" from Achtung Baby (1991)

Thoughts: I'm really wishy-washy with this song. While I absolutely enjoy the instrumentation of the song and the natural sound of Bono's voice, the track is sometimes kind of annoying. Maybe it's the repetition that occurs at the beginning of the chorus. Or the fact that the chorus is too simplistic. There are times when I really love to hear this song and then, there are other times when I'd switch radio stations if it came on. But the instrumentation of the track is its true strength, with the different mixes of the guitar with the bass and drums. The song sounds really dark with some of the instruments, but it doesn't overpower the song in any way and thus, makes it very light. Nevertheless, I think "Mysterious Ways" is a standout track of "Achtung Baby".
