Song Of The Day

Today's Selection is...

“Exit” from The Joshua Tree.

Okay, so I’m going to be completely biased because The Joshua Tree is my favorite album EVER, and I love every song off of it, but…

This song is amazing. The energy in it, the bassline, vocals, drums, and the muted guitar at the beginning, all amazing.

I got nothing else on this song.

Did U2 ever play “Exit” live? If so, does anyone have a really good version of it that they’d be willing to upload?

You know he got the cure
You know he went astray
He used to stay awake
To drive the dreams he had away
He wanted to believe
In the hands of love

His head it felt heavy
As he cut across the land
A dog started crying
Like a broken hearted man
At the howling wind
At the howling wind

He went deeper into black
Deeper into white
Could see the stars shining
Like nails in the night
He felt the healing
Healing, healing
Healing hands of love
Like the stars shining, shining
From above

A hand in the pocket
A finger on the steel
The pistol weighed heavy
And his heart he could feel
Was beating, beating
Beating, beating oh my love
Oh my love, oh my love
Oh my love

My love

So the hands that build
Can also pull down
The hands of love
