Song of the Day

Today's Selection is...

"I Will Follow" from Boy


If you were around in 1980, never hearing of U2, picked up Boy and listen to the first track on it, you would be an instant U2 fan. So much so that this song still holds up today. The song itself is craziness, conforming more to the title Out of Control. It's fast paced, energetic, danceable (just don't dance like Bono) and popish.
I annoyed my friends one day when the "your eyes make a circle, your eyes, yo-yo-your eyes, your eyes, yo-yo-yo yo your eyes!" part got stuck in my head and I kept repeating it subconsciously.

The song is a homage to Bono's mother, whom he lost in 1974, when he was 14.

Hands down, their best video ever. I don't think I've ever laughed so much by myself. I can reupload the video, if you'd like, or you can watch a small clip of it here. Click on "video"
Aww, it's cute Edge! Dance like no one is watching! It's the entire song, really.



// I Will Follow

I was on the outside when you said
You needed me
I was looking at myself
I was blind, I could not see.

A boy tries hard to be a man
His mother takes him by the hand
If he stops to think, he starts to cry
Oh why?

If you walk away, walk away
I walk away, walk away
I will follow.
If you walk away, walk away
I walk away, walk away
I will follow.
I will follow.

I was on the inside
When they pulled the four walls down
I was looking through the window
I was lost, I am found.

If you walk away, walk away
I walk away, walk away
I will follow.
If you walk away, walk away
I walk away, walk away
I will follow.
I will follow.

Your eyes make a circle
I see you when I go in there
Your eyes, your eyes
Your eyes, your eyes.

If you walk away, walk away
I walk away, walk away
I will follow.
If you walk away, walk away
I walk away, walk away
I will follow.
I will follow.

On a completely seperate issue: What's the html coding for wrapping text around a picture? Does anyone know?
