Song Of The Day

Today's Selection is...

“All Because Of You (Alternate Version)” from Unreleased and Rare.

When I first purchased HTDAAB, I was strangely unimpressed by “All Because Of You”. Perhaps it was the nature of Bono’s voice on the “Alllllll because of you.” Whatever it was, I didn’t like it.

I fell in love with this version of the song when I first heard it, mostly because I absolutely LOVE the “My oh my!” And although the lyrics in the original version, “intellectual tortoise” specifically, are… endearing, I like the lyrics to this version more.

Next to it
I was so close to it
I had the universe decoded
Then the atom split

I hear you say "My oh my!
You know I got no tears to cry
And I got no love left in me now
Just salt in my eye"

All because of you
All because of you
All because of you
I'm down, I'm down

Thunder's loud
But the sun is shining up above the cloud
It's not the noise, it's the deafening silence
Drowns God out

You say I should go for help
But I can't go, go to nobody else
You're like the river flowing underground
I can feel you when you're not around

All because of you
It's all because of you
All because of you
I'm down, we're down

(You sadden me, too mortal)
(Slow your tinman heart, tomorrow now)
(Know, I know yeah)

I'm alive, I'm being born
I just arrived, I'm at the door
Of the place I started out from
I want back inside

All because of you
All because of you
All because of you
