Song of the Day

Today's Selection is...

"Even Better Than the Real Thing" from Achtung Baby


The music in this song is great. It really is. Image hosted by Photobucket.comEdge is in top form with the guitar. That guitar break in the middle is beyond excellent. The guitar is screaming for a voice to sing with. I love it. Aside from that, I skip this song 8 times out of 10. I think it has to do with the harmony that Edge and Bono have. It seems so off to me. Don't get me wrong, I think Edge is a great vocalist, but I don't think he should harmonize an entire song with Bono. It sounds kind of sloppy. The lyrics are in that grey area where they can pretty much fit to anything you want. There's not a whole lot to it so it's really a song you can learn pretty quickly. I guess that's why I know the lyrics by heart and I've heard this song maybe 9 times in my entire life. Three times in just these past two days.


//even BETTER than the REAL THING

Give me one more chance
And you'll be satisfied
Give me two more chances
You won't be denied

Well my heart is where it's always been
My head is somewhere in between
Give me one more chance
Let me be your lover tonight

(Oh my love, check it out)

You're the real thing
Yeah, the real thing
You're the real thing
Even better than the real thing
Child...

Give me one last chance
And I'm gonna make you sing
Give me half a chance
To ride on the waves that you bring

You're honey child to a swarm of bees
Gonna blow right through you like a breeze
Give me one last dance
We'll slide down the surface of things

You're the real thing
Yeah, the real thing
You're the real thing
Even better than the real thing
Child...

We're free to fly the crimson sky
The sun won't melt our wings tonight

Oh now... oh yeah
Here she comes

Take me higher
Take me higher
You take me higher
You take me higher

You're the real thing
Yeah, the real thing
You're the real thing
Even better than the real thing / (yeah)
Even better than the real thing / (yeah)
Even better than the real thing / (yeah)


Oh and the music video for this song makes me dizzy.

I'll still sing the song like I did at a shopping mall when a certain restaurant *cough* Dan Marino's *cough* was blasting it out of their speakers. And then my friends told me to shut up. lol
