Song of the Day

Today's Selection is...

"Bad" from The Unforgettable Fire


This song was a sleeper for me. Something I would always skip to get to "Where the Streets Have No Name" in the Best Of... cd. Then somehow this song just clicked for me. I love the drums. Especially when Larry bounces from playing the cymbals back to drums and back to cymbals. For me, it's the whole song. I don't even hear lyrics until Bono starts to shout "Wide awake!!!!"
Huh. I guess that's the purpose.

Edges guitar also makes me happy in this song. It's probably one of the most recognizable songs by it's first few notes just cause of that.

Your Butt Is Mine
Gonna Tell You Right
Just Show Your Face
In Broad Daylight
I'm Telling You
On How I Feel
Gonna Hurt Your Mind
Don't Shoot To Kill...


Oh I'm only joking.

// Bad

If you twist and turn away.
It you tear yourself in two again.
If I could, yes I would
If I could, I would let it go.
Surrender, dislocate.

If I could throw this lifeless life-line to the wind.
Leave this heart of clay, see you walk, walk away
Into the night, and through the rain
Into the half light and through the flame.

If I could, through myself, set your spirit free
I'd lead your heart away, see you break, break away
Into the light and to the day.

To let it go and so to find away.
To let it go and so find away.
I'm wide awake.
I'm wide awake, wide awake.
I'm not sleeping.

If you should ask, then maybe
They'd tell you what I would say
True colours fly in blue and black
Blue silken sky and burning flag.
Colours crash, collide in blood-shot eyes.

If I could, you know I would
If I could, I would let it go.

This desperation, dislocation
Separation, condemnation
Revelation, in temptation
Isolation, desolation
Let it go and so to find away
To let it go and so to find away
To let it go and so to find away

I'm wide awake, I'm wide awake, wide awake
I'm not sleeping
Oh no, no, no.


Favorite lyrics:
This desperation, dislocation
Separation, condemnation
Revelation, in temptation
Isolation, desolation



Condensation, reclamation
microdermabrasion!
Woot!
