Song of the Day

Today's Selection is...

Gone from "Pop"


I didn't begin to like this song until very recently for some reason. I used to skip over it and now I can't. What an incredible intro by Edge with that overdrive. I like New Mix better only because I find Bono's singing much more improved, especially in the bridge. AND! Adam gets a nice little solo during the bridge in the New Mix that absolutely drives me wild. The bass guitar is much more prominent and helps tie in the song a little better.
I suppose it's one of the songs that could have been great if only they had had more time to tweak it in the studio.
Favorite lyrics:
You changed your name
Well that's okay, it's necessary
And what you leave behind you don't miss anyway.


Coincidence that their next album would be called "All That You Can't Leave Behind"?
Hmm. HMM!
Award goes to Image hosted by Photobucket.com for the bass guitar that doesn't miss a beat.
Honorable mention to Edge for the overdrive guitar.

You get to feel so guilty
Got so much for so little
The you find that feeling just won't go away.
You're holding on to every little thing so tightly
Till there's nothing left for you anyway.

Goodbye, you can keep this suit of lights
I'll be up with the sun
I'm not coming down
I'm not coming down
I'm not coming down.

You wanted to get somewhere so badly
You had to lose yourself along the way.
You changed your name
Well that's okay, it's necessary
And what you leave behind you don't miss anyway.

Goodbye, you can keep this suit of lights
I'll be up with the sun
I'm not coming down
I'm not coming down
I'm not coming down.

'Cause I'm already gone
Felt that way all along.
Closer to you every day
I didn't want it that much anyway.

You're taking steps that make you feel dizzy
Then you learn to like the way it feels.
You hurt yourself, you hurt your lover
Then you discover
What you thought was freedom is just greed.

Goodbye, and it's an emotional
Goodnight, I'll be up with the sun.
Are you still holding on?
I'm not coming down
I'm not coming down
I'm not coming down.


On a side note: Go see Batman Begins! I'm running on 3.5 hours of sleep due to the midnight showing of it.
There's one part where an opera singer is wearing a very familiar set of devil horns. Makes you wonder if it's a coincidence or paying homage to the villian that never was.
I didn't give away anything, it's not even important in the movie.


I always thought "suit of lights" was "suit of lies." Makes sense to me, in a Donnie Darko-ish kind of way.
Why are you wearing that stupid man suit?
