“Who’s Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses (Temple Bar Mix)” from the WGRYWH Single


When I reviewed the original song the first time around, I said it might possibly be my most favorite U2 song of all time. Now I can confidently say: This is my most favorite U2 song of all time.
This remix of my most favorite song also happens to be one of my most favorite remixes of a U2 song. I’ll stop typing ‘most favorite’ now.
Image hosted by Photobucket.comI can’t even say what’s different about it. I think there’s a piano involved, maybe a tambourine? Extra drums? All I know is that the mix is ten times better than the “Temple Bar Edit” which butchers the song and tries to reconstruct it in the worst way ever. If I’m not mistaken, the "Don't Turn Around" part is removed from it. But with the Mix, the song remains exactly how it was originally made, only it’s ‘most favoritely better.’
Intersetingly, I was toiling between doing this song and another this morning and was waiting for a deciding factor. On shuffle, with speakers blasting in my car, this exact song came out.
Mysterious Ways, indeed.


// Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses (Temple Bar Mix)

You're dangerous 'cos you're honest
You're dangerous, you don't know what you want
Well you left my heart empty as a vacant lot
For any spirit to haunt

Hey hey, sha la la
Hey hey...

You're an accident waiting to happen
You're a piece of glass left there on a beach
Well you tell me things I know you're not supposed to
Then you leave me just out of reach

Hey hey, sha la la
Hey hey, sha la la

Who's gonna ride your wild horses?
Who's gonna drown in your blue sea?
Who's gonna ride your wild horses?
Who's gonna fall at the foot of thee?

Well you stole it
'Cos I needed the cash
And you killed it
'Cos I wanted revenge
Well you lied to me
'Cos I asked you to
Baby, can we still be friends?

Hey hey, sha la la
Hey hey, sha la la

Who's gonna ride your wild horses?
Who's gonna drown in your blue sea?
Who's gonna ride your wild horses?
Who's gonna fall at the foot of thee?

Oh, the deeper I spin
Oh, the hunter will sin for your ivory skin
Took a drive in the dirty rain
To a place where the wind calls your name
Under the trees the river laughing at you and me
Hallelujah, heavens wide rows
The doors you open
I just can't close

Don't turn around
Don't you turn around again
Don't turn around
You gypsy heart
Don't turn around
Don't turn around again
Don't turn around
And don't look back
Come on now love
Don't you look back

Who's gonna ride your wild horses?
Who's gonna drown in your blue sea?
Who's gonna taste your salt water kisses?
Who's gonna take the place of me?

Who's gonna ride your wild horses?
Who could tame the heart of thee?
