Song of the Day

Today's Selection is...

"If God Will Send His Angels" from Pop


I watched "City of Angels" once, the entire way through, to hear this song. And it never came out. It even says it on my VHS sleeve! NEW SONG BY U2! ::kicks film editors::
At the beginning of my SotD duties, I was unsure with the entire album of Pop. I was unsure of the kind of psyche the band was in while writing it, and I easily sympathized with the critics who had given it a bad review. Three months later, it's my second favorite U2 album.
Image hosted by Photobucket.comI'm in love with the entire ambiance of this song. Right down to that little guitar riff (you know what I'm talking about, "Doooo, do do do do Dooo" to the bass that nearly made my speaker explode this morning. Damn you Adam! Larry is superb, his beat is...guh. I heart Bono in this song and in the video (which is brilliant.) Some of his lyrics here are just plain genius.
God has got his phone off the hook, babe
Would he even pick up if he could

And come on, the Cartoon Network turning into the news? I love it. I think it's such a great criticsm of society.
Confidently: My favorite song off of Pop.


// If God Will Send His Angels

Nobody else here baby
No one here to blame
No one to point the finger
It's just you and me and the rain

Nobody made you do it
No one put words in your mouth
Nobody here taking orders
When love took a train heading south

It's the blind leading the blond
It's the stuff, it's the stuff of country songs

Hey if God will send his angels
And if God will send a sign
And if God will send his angels
Would everything be alright?

God has got his phone off the hook, babe
Would he even pick up if he could
It's been a while since we saw that child
Hanging 'round this neighbourhood
You see his mother dealing in a doorway
See Father Christmas with a begging bowl
And Jesus sister's eyes are a blister
The High Street never looked so low

It's the blind leading the blond
It's the cops collecting for the cons
So where is the hope and where is the faith
And the love...what's that you say to me
Does love...light up your Christmas Tree
The next minute you're blowing a fuse
And the Cartoon Network turns into the news

If God will send his angels
And if God will send a sign
Well if God will send his angels...
Where do we go?
Where do we go?

Jesus never let me down
You know Jesus used to show me the score
Then they put Jesus in show business
Now it's hard to get in the door, angel

It's the stuff, it's the stuff of country songs
But I guess it was something to go on

If God will send his angels
Sure could use them here right now
Well if God would send his angels

(And I might not want my life)
(I want my lover feel my soul) / So where do we go?
(And I want my love and I)
(And I want to feel alone) / So where do we go?
How?

(Sing my song)
(Sing my song)
(Sing my song)
(Sing my song)

(Baby, just like you kept telling me, slow down)
