Song Of The Day

Today's Selection is...

“Mothers Of The Disappeared” from The Joshua Tree.

I love this song; it’s such a perfect song to end The Joshua Tree. A sad, mournful, but beautiful song. So nice to listen to when it's raining. I love Bono’s falsetto parts. And, since Larry rarely gets the respect he deserves, I have to mention the drums in this song. What in hell is he using to create that sound? I’ve always heard it was some sort of device to make drums play melodics, but I can’t for the life of me figure out what it may be. Anyone know?

Midnight, our sons and daughters
Were cut down, taken from us
Hear their heartbeat
We hear their heartbeat

In the wind we hear their laughter
In the rain we see their tears
Hear their heartbeat
We hear their heartbeat

Night hangs like a prisoner
Stretched over black and blue
Hear their heartbeat
We hear their heartbeat

In the trees our sons stand naked
Through the walls our daughters cry
See their tears in the rainfall
