Song Of The Day

Today's Selection is...

“Some Days Are Better Than Others” from Zooropa.

When I first purchased Zooropa, I hated this song. (Okay, I hated all of Zooropa, but gradually, it grew on me.)

Yesterday I was letting the album play, and SDABTO came on. I let it play, and was surprised at how much I actually liked it. Adam’s bass is, once again, turned up way too loud, but it works. I also like the ringing bit of guitar work by the Edge.

And, erm, favourite part of the song: The “whoo-hoo!”s after the chorus.

Some days are dry, some days are leaky
Some days come clean, other days are sneaky
Some days take less, but most days take more
Some slip through your fingers and onto the floor

Some days you're quick, but most days you're speedy
Some days you use more force than is necessary
Some days just drop in on us
Some days are better than others

Some days it all adds up
And what you got isn't enough
Some days are better than others

Some days are slippy, other days sloppy
Some days you can't stand the sight of a puppy
Your skin is white but you think you're a brother
Some days are better than others

Some days you wake up with her complaining
Some sunny days you wish it was raining
Some days are sulky, some days have a grin
And some days have bouncers and won't let you in

Some days you hear a voice
Taking you to another place
Some days are better than others

Some days are honest, some days are not
Some days you're thankful for what you've got
Some days you wake up in the army
And some days it's the enemy

Some days are work, most days you're lazy
Some days you feel like a bit of a baby
Lookin' for Jesus and His mother
Some days are better than others

Some days you feel ahead
You're making sense of what she said
Some days are better than others

Some days you hear a voice
Taking you to another place
Some days are better than others
