Song Of The Day @ 01:05 pm

claudiathefish:
I'm currently feelin: amused amused
I'm currently hearin: U2 - Desire

Today's Selection is...

“Desire” from Rattle And Hum.

A short, fun gem of a song. Out-of-synch clapping, Bono-wailing, Bono’s harmonica-playing; this song’s got it all. Edge, Adam, Larry and Bono are all playing/singing their asses off during this song.

(Yeah)

Lover, I'm off the street
Gonna go where the bright lights
And the big city meet
With a red guitar...on fire
Desire

She's a candle burning in my room
Yeah I'm like the needle, needle and spoon
Over the counter with a shotgun
Pretty soon everybody got one
And the fever when I'm beside her
Desire, desire
(Ready?)

And the fever... getting higher
Desire, desire... burning, I'm burning

She's the dollars
She's my protection
Yeah she's a promise
In the year of election
Oh sister
I can't let you go
Like a preacher stealing hearts
At a traveling show

For love or money money money
Money money money
Money money money, money money
And the fever, getting higher
Desire, desire
Desire, desire
(Alright)

Desire, desire
(Alright)

Ahhhh! This song is really high on my list of favourites. Gorgeous music, gorgeous lyrics.

"And the fever, getting higher! De-siiiiiiiiiiire!"

Okay, now I totally have to go listen to it now. ;)

I love the background music to this song and the "De-si i i i i i re" Bono and Edge sing.

I've never payed attention to the lyrics. It's not a favorite, but I don't skip it often.

Great song. Very sexy.

Larry's beat is very animalistic and wild.

Desire is my favorite U2 song, out of all of them. It really is.

Brilliant. Even the "...Yeah" at the start is brilliant. This song just rocks, you can't help dancing and tapping your feet to it. Bono's passionate vocals are great - I especially love the silly voice he uses when he sings it in the Rattle & Hum movie! :D  Guitar, drums, harmonica, all extremely cool. If I had to pick an absolute favourite part of the song, it'd be "Oh sister!  I can't lettttt you go!  Like a preacher stealing hearts in a travelling show!  For love or money money money money-money-money..."  I just adore singing along with that bit.

And I grin insanely whenever I hear one of MacPhisto's versions of Desire. I know a lot of people didn't like the way he effectively spoke the lyrics, but I'm a big Mac fan so I love it. "Pretty soon, y'all... everybody's got one!"
