Song Of The Day

Today's Selection is...

“Elecrtical Storm“ from The Best Of 1990-2000.

Right then. This song came out of nowhere. In all senses.

I heard this song a few years back; it was the radio version, which is a bit more pepped-up than the William Orbit remix. I like both versions, personally.

When I first heard this song, I was, for some reason, immediately hooked on the song because of the novel little guitar bit. I also loved the lines “On rainy days, we’d go swimming out/On rainy days, swimming in the sound”. While admittedly not Bono’s best lyrics, they created a picture for me that I could compare with events and memories in my life.

This is honestly such a fun song to sing along to, also. Getting funny looks as you and your friends howl “Electrical Stoooooorm!” is always amusing.

The sea it swells like a sore head
And the night it is aching
Two lovers lie with no sheets on their bed
And the day it is breaking

On rainy days we'd go swimming out
On rainy days, swimming in the sound
On rainy days we'd go swimming out

You're in my mind all of the time
I know that's not enough
If the sky can crack, there must be some way back
For love and only love

Car alarm won't let ya back to sleep
You're kept awake dreaming some else's dream
Coffee is cold, but it will get you through
Compromise, that's nothing new to you

Let's see colours that have never been seen
Let's go to places no one else has been

You're in my mind all of the time
I know that's not enough
Well if the sky can crack, there must be some way back
To love and only love

Electrical Storm
Electrical Storm
Electrical Storm
Baby don't cry

It's hot as hell, honey in this room
Sure hope the weather will break soon
The air is heavy, heavy as a truck
We need the rain to wash away our bad luck

Hey-yeah, hey-eeyay

Well if the sky can crack, there must be some way back
For love and only love

Electrical Storm
Electrical Storm
Electrical Storm

Baby don't cry
Baby don't cry
Baby don't cry
Baby don't cry
