Song of the Day

Today's Selection is...

"Original of the Species" from How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb


What a extremely cute song. It's advice written in a great little tune, exceptionally sung and played.

Okay rather than go into detail re-explaining everything...
Quoth sapphires13: Edge:"The last time I cried was listening to that song. It was a song Bono started on the last record about my daughter Holly. He's her godfather. The lyric became more universal. About being young and full of doubt about yourself. He probably won't agree, but I think it has connotations for Bono, looking back to when he was 20."
Quoth fluidwhispers: You know that part in the middle? Bono's ribbiting. Because Holly likes frogs. I think that is so freaking adorable.
Me too. I never thought about as ribbiting, but it makes sense. Even the guitar ribbits. XD

Ribbit.
"Discussion post"

A great little number. It should have really been placed earlier in the album rather than at the end when it begins to lose it's luster.



//Original of the Species

Baby slow down
The end is not as fun as the start
Please stay a child somewhere in your heart

I'll give you everything you want
Except the thing that you want
You are the first one of your kind

And you feel like no-one before
You steal right under my door
I kneel 'cos I want you some more
I want the lot of what you got
And I want nothing that you're not

Everywhere you go you shout it
You don't have to be shy about it

Some things you shouldn't get too good at
Like smiling, crying and celebrity
Some people got way too much confidence baby, baby

I'll give you everything you want
Except the thing that you want
You are the first one of your kind

And you feel like no-one before
You steal right under my door
I kneel 'cos I want you some more
I want the lot of what you got
And I want nothing that you're not

Everywhere you go you shout it
You don't have to be shy about it, no
Oh no, oh no no no
(Here's your father)

Didit, didit, didit, didit, didit, didit, didit, didit
Didit, didit, didit, didit, didit, didit, didit
Sugar come on
Come on now show your soul
You've been keeping your love under control

Everywhere you go you shout it
You don't have to be shy about it (no)
Everywhere you go you shout it (on high)
Oh my my

And you feel like no-one before
You steal right under my door
I kneel 'cos I want you some more
I want you some more, I want you some more

Oh no, oh no, oh no, oh no


Favorite lyrics:
Some things you shouldn't get too good at
Like smiling, crying and celebrity


Mysterious ways indeed. I picked this song for today last Thursday and this morning, I hit "shuffle" on the u2Pod and it's the very first song played. ^_^
