Song Of The Day

Moving on…

Today's Selection is...

“Hawkmoon 269” from Rattle And Hum.

I love this song. It has such an almost-humorous cowboy feel to it. And I love Edge’s background vocals.

My favourite bit of the song is when Bono begins yelling the lyrics, at “Like thunder needs rain!”. And of course the “And the heat of love in the heart,” at the end of the song.

Possibly the best non-musical part about this song is that no one has, to my knowledge, ever figured out what “Hawkmoon 269” actually means.

Like a desert needs rain
Like a town needs a name
I need your love

Like a drifter needs a room
Hawkmoon
I need your love

I need your love

Like a rhythm unbroken
Like drums in the night
Like sweet soul music
Like sunlight
I need your love

Like coming home
And you don't know where you've been
Like black coffee
Like nicotine
I need your love, I need your love
I need your love, I need your love
Oo-hoo, I need your love, I need your love

When the night has no end
And the day yet to begin
As the room spins around
I need your love

I need your love

Like a Phoenix rising needs a holy tree
Like the sweet revenge of a bitter enemy
I need your love, I need your love

Like heat needs the sun
Like honey on her tongue
Like the muzzle of a gun
Like oxygen
I need your love, I need your love
Need your love, I need your love

I need your love, oh yes / I need your love

When the night has no end
And the day yet to begin
As the room spins around
I need your love

I need your love
(Whoa)

I need your love, I need your love
Need your love, I need your love
I need your love, I need your love
I need your love
I need your love

Like thunder needs rain
Like a preacher needs pain
Like tongues of flame
Like a sweet stain
I need your love
I need your love

Like a needle needs a vein
Like someone to blame
Like a thought unchained
Like a runaway train
I need your love
I need your love
I need your love
I need your love
Ow

I need your love, I need your love
I need your love, I need your love
Ow

Like faith needs a doubt
Like a freeway out
I need your love

Like powder needs a spark
Like lies need the dark
I need your love

And the heat of love in the heart
And the heat of love in the heart

[Repeat until end]
