Song Of The Day

Today's Selection is...

“Trip Through Your Wires” from The Joshua Tree.

I am in love with this song. It’s one of my favourite songs off of The Joshua Tree, and that’s saying something. It’s disappointing how much this song is criticized as being “kiss-off” and “too light” , because I feel it fits in perfectly with the rest of the album.

I love Bono’s harmonica-playing-ness.

I’ve always liked the sound of Edge’s guitar in the background on this song; the intensely high part at around 1:35 in the song. And of course the yelps and howls in the song, and Edge’s harmony vocals. It’s so much fun to sing along to.

In the distance
She saw me coming 'round
I was calling out
I was calling out

Still shaking
Still in pain
You put me back together again
I was cold and you clothed me honey
I was down and you lifted me honey

Angel
Angel or devil
I was thirsty
And you wet my lips

You, I'm waiting for you
You, you set my desire
I trip through your wires

I was broken, bent out of shape
I was naked in the clothes you made
Lips were dry, throat like rust
You gave me shelter from the heat and the dust
No more water in the well
No more water, water

Angel
Angel or devil
I was thirsty
And you wet my lips

You, I'm waiting for you
You, you set my desire
I trip through your wires

All I need... all I need
All I need... all I need
All I need... all I need
All I need is... is...

Thunder, thunder on the mountain
There's a rain cloud in the desert sky
In the distance she saw me coming 'round
I was calling out
I was calling out
