Song Of The Day

Today's Selection is...

“A Man And A Woman” from How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb.

This song has the distinction of being one of my favourite tracks off of HTDAAB, which is hard to say because I’ve grown to love them all. I seem to enjoy the tracks on albums that are labeled as “fillers” for some reason, “Trip Through Your Wires,” “Trying To Throw Your Arms Around The World,” and “Wild Honey,” to name a few. But I honestly don’t know how this song came to be labeled a “filler” when it’s such a lovely little track.

Little sister,don't you worry about a thing today,
Take the heat from the sun
And little sister
I know that everything is not okay,
But you're like honey on my tongue

No. I can't even pick my favourite lyrics. I love them all. And especially the break and ending.

And oh. Bono's vocals. The guitar. The melody. The bass and the drums. Everything. So beautiful.

More psychic SOTD occurrences: I chose this song on Friday for the SOTD today, and as I was walking home from work (almost having a heatstroke, I might add, darn New Orleans summers,) my neighbours were out on their porch playing this song. I was very happy.

Little sister,don't you worry about a thing today,
Take the heat from the sun
And little sister
I know that everything is not okay,
But you're like honey on my tongue

True love never can be rent
But only true love can keep beauty innocent

No, I could never take a chance
Of losing love to find romance
In the mysterious distance
Between a man and a woman
No I could never take a chance
'Cos I could never understand
The mysterious distance
Between a man and a woman

You can run from love
And if it's really love it will find you
Catch you by the heel
But you can't be numb for love
The only pain is to feel nothing at all
How can I hurt when I'm holding you?

I could never take a chance
Of losing love to find romance
In the mysterious distance
Between a man and a woman
And you're the one, there's no-one else
That makes me want to lose myself
In the mysterious distance
Between a man and a woman

Brown eyed girl across the street
On Rue Saint Divine
I thought 'This is the one for me,'
But she was already mine
You were already mine

Little sister
I've been sleeping in the street again
Like a stray dog
And little sister
I've been trying to feel complete again
But you're gone and so is God

The soul needs beauty for a soul mate
When the soul wants... the soul waits...

No, I could never take a chance
Of losing love to find romance
In the mysterious distance
Between a man and a woman
For love and faith and sex and fear
And all the things that keep us here
In the mysterious distance
Between a man and a woman

You'll see
You'll see
How can I hurt when I'm holding you?
