I'm currently feelin: creative
I'm currently hearin: Dave Matthews Band- Ants Marching

Hello, my name is Megan and I've decided to take over as the person who picks "Song Of The Day" in place of hue126 , who most unfortunately decided to stop doing it. Thank you hue126 for doing such a great job! Now without further wait....

Today's Selection is...

"Last Night On Earth" from Pop

Thoughts: Perhaps it is because of the fact that the lyrics from this song closely mirror those of the newer song "City Of Blinding Lights" (my personal favorite off the HTDAB Album) or maybe it's the way Bono's voice echos when he says the line "She's living like it's the last night on earth!" that makes me love the song so much. Coming off a hugely underestimated album Pop,  "Last Night On Earth" is very catchy and widely interesting.

I fell in love with song on the 2nd night of the Popmart tour in San Diego...being outdoors in the fresh air...and then hearing this AWESOME Bass intro! You know, when yuo can feel it in your gut. I loved POP ever since.

Thanks for taking up the reins!!

LOVE this song - it's my favourite from Pop. The bass intro makes the whole thing so atmospheric, and Bono's voice has an amazing tone to it throughout. Actually, I'm going to go listen to it now :D

*sings along*

I actually just recently discovered this song (didn't own Pop before!) and am absolutely in love with it. Like everyone else, I love the bass line and I love the "You've got to give it awayyyyyyy".

And the video is so entirely bizarre and funny. Seriosuly. So messed up *G*

You know, when I was younger, I absolutely hated U2. And it was entirely because of that album. Pop was the only U2 album my dad had, and we listened to it all the time. And I just hated it.

... and then I got older, started exploring music on my own and discovered, to my great delight, that there is a whole wide world of U2 which doesn't sound like Discotheque.

Erm. All of that having been said, I do enjoy Last Night on Earth. One of the few from Pop that really interest me.

One of my favorites from Pop. I'm totally with a few of the other posters on the loud singing of, "You've got to give it awaaaaaaay!" I also like the line, "She hasn't been to bed in a week. She'll be dead soon, then she'll sleep."

I love "Last Night on Earth." In fact, I think there were some really good songs on Pop (Gone, Discoteque, If God Will Send His Angels, Please), but the production was way too overblown. It was my first U2 album, and it soured me on the band at first.
