Song of the Day

Le theme:

Bono Takes A Sick Day

Le song:

"4th of July" from The Unforgettable Fire

UF was the last album I got my grubby little hands on.  I even had the Best Ofs, so I knew of things like 'Endless Deep' and 'Bass Trap'.  But putting a lyricless song on an album? No, boys, no!!  Putting it before 'Bad'? Even worse!  It's like a two minute extra wait, and I've already been waiting about 20 minutes anyway.

No, it's not a celebration of American Independence Day.  Even if Bono likes the idea of America, why would they do it?  Adam was playing with a slide bass, Edge joined in, Eno recorded, on 4 July.  That is all.  The song doesn't even invoke fireworks, hot dogs, and apple pie images for me, either.  In fact, I'd have to say I feel like I'm drifting through space.  I feel like watching 2001: A Space Odyssey now.
