"Scarlet" from October
I will give this SotD thing it's credit, the more I talk about some songs/albums, the more I like them. The more I discuss October, the more I like it. But it works the other way, too. Some songs I thought I liked offhand, I really don't care for once I read into their history and discover the lyrics. (i.e. - "Is That All?")
"Scarlet" is still a difficult little song for me, but as I have it on repeat here, I like the music more and more. The lyrics are simple (rejoice, rejoice, rejoice), so Bono only talk a half-day on this one. There is piano work, which I love, Larry drolling away in the background. What I love most of all about this song is Adam's bass. It almost comes to the front, by being so predominant back there behind everything else. This song also contains a Larry drum solo, heh, but not really. Everything else gets quiet for a few seconds around 1:37, and Larry just marches on... to the beat of his own drum (oy what a cliche).
I don't think the lyrics posting is necessary. You?
