Song of The Day

This will be the last "Song of The Day" that I will post. I don't have the motivation to keep doing this and I'm just starting to get busy so... if anyone in the community wants to take over, I don't mind at all.

Today's selection is "Stuck in a Moment" from All That You Can't Leave Behind (2000)

Thoughts: There are times when I like this song and there are other times when I find it really annoying. I think the bad feelings come from the really, really obvious "message" that the band is trying to convey in the lyrics. It's like being hit over the head over and over again. The opposite of that is the fact that the song is damned catchy and has this whole gospel feeling that runs through the entire thing. The instrumentation and some of Bono's delivery contribute to the gospel feeling and I have to admit that I really like the song for that.

(I intended Sunday's song to be "The Sweetest Thing", which I think is just the penultimate summer song if ever there was one, but I couldn't get to updating it)
