Song Of The Day @ 08:56 am

claudiathefish:
I'm currently feelin: scared scared
I'm currently hearin: U2 - Elevation (The Biffco Mix)

Today's Selection is...

“Elevation (The Biffco Mix)” from the Elevation Single.

Well, the only real reason I chose this song for today is, well, there is a category 5 hurricane headed straight for my city, and I need something loud and crashing about to make me hyper. This song made me so hyper when I first listened to it, and I just kept turning the volume up higher and higher. It’s just so much fun. I love the middle eight of the song; how it feels like just floating in the air, and at the end of the middle eight, everything just comes crashing back to earth. I like this remix just as much as the album version, especially the “What is it that you want?” at the beginning and how the verses are less acoustic.

This song is available for download at U2usendit at Gmail, the password is vertigou2.

(What is it that you want?)

High, higher than the sun
You shoot me from a gun
I need you to elevate me here
At the corner of your lips
As the orbit of your hips
Eclipse, you elevate my soul

I've got no self-control
Been living like a mole now
Going down, excavation
I and I in the sky
You make me feel like I can fly
So high, elevation

(Ah)
(Shake it out, and you slip it in your pocket)
(Ah, how long, how long)

A star lit up like a cigar
Strung out like a guitar
Maybe you could educate my mind
Explain all these controls
I can't sing but I've got soul
The goal is elevation

A mole, digging in a hole
Digging up my soul now
Going down, excavation
I and I in the sky
You make me feel like I can fly
So high, elevation

Love, lift me up out of these blues
Won't you tell me something true
I believe in you / (This is what they do best)

A mole, digging in a hole
Digging up my soul now
Going down, excavation
I and I in the sky
You make me feel like I can fly
So high, elevation

Elevation...
Elevation...
Elevation...
Elevation...

This has got to be the greatest and coolest of all the Elevation remixes!  It's my favourite, for sure. It manages to combine the best bits of the various other mixes, AND there's a whole extra layer of coolness on top of that!  I love the distant sirens, I love the really electronic feel of it, I love the lengthy outro that emphasises that funky little tune, and most of all I love Bono's "WHATISITTHATYOUWANNNT!" at the beginning. It's just awesome! :D

Hurricane Katrina. Argh! Such a pain in the arse. I was out at sea when it hit, but it left my city in shambles. My house has no power or phone, so I'm catching up online at my dad's house.
I hope you and your family will be alright. Andrew was a category 5 and we survived likely, barely. Total devastation. *hugs*

And thank you so much for covering me with the SotD! I'll see if I can do this week at work or something until I get my power back.

Ack! Thank you, unfortunately, for some reason, my family is too mad to leave the city, and as you probably know, New Orleans is a giant fishbowl waiting to happen!

You're quite welcome, I don't anticipate having power at all this week so... have a nice week!

That's scary. Because they're saying if there were a category six, this would be it. Stay safe. :-\
