I almost forgot about today's Song of the Day
so I pick...

Twilight

This song really caught my attention (i.e. I fell in love with it) on The Sweetest Thing single.  I find it very sweet, and lovey.  The guitar part is amazing, if you ask me. There's not much to say about this song, I find it pretty simple, but the simplicity is what makes me love it so, I guess.  I didn't really care for this song for a long time, but eventually it came around and basically I started playing it constantly for about a 6 month span a couple years back.  I listened to it today for the first time in a loooong while.  My favorite line is "forever and a day has just begun today". 

What do you think?


I look into your eyes
To find you in disguise
Forever and a day
Has just begun today

My body tangled, torn
My senses feel reborn
Direction have I none
I'd then forgotten the one

Twilight... darkened day
Twilight... lost my way
Twilight... numbing grey
Twilight... can't find my way

In the shadow boy meets man
In the shadow boy meets man
In the shadow boy meets man
In the shadow boy meets man

I'm falling in the rain
I play in teenage games
It's all and everything
I'm soaking through the skin

Twilight... darkened day
Twilight... I've lost my way
Twilight... numbing grey
Twilight... can't seem to find my way

Went up to the soldier man
With the marching guards and said
You are a single man
Who keeps out the riff-raff man
Who learned to make the soul?
Who let the bodies go?
Who saw the musical man
Who can cure this land

Twilight, twilight, twilight, twilight
Twilight, twilight, twilight, twilight
Twilight, twilight, twilight, twilight

Twilight... darkened day
Twilight... lost my way

In the shadow boy meets man
In the shadow boy meets man
In the shadow boy meets man
In the shadow boy meets man

This song reminds me of driving the Monteray coast. It always seems that I'm listening to it whenever I am in Monteray.

That's not the original version, is it?

They remade it and rewrote it. The version from boy is much shorter and it didn't have piano music, it was a piece of preadolescent angst and some have interpreted it as a homoerotic encounter.

Great deals of Boy can be interpretted as homoerotic encounters.

This is true, and I remember hearing from Bono, I think, in interview that the gay community were among their early and most feverent supporters because of Boy. :-)

Mmmm...I've only heard it from the Complete iTunes so maybe it's the revamped version?
Either way, I don't think I'd like the original version now that I've grown to live this one so much. =)

I like this song, especially towards the climax when Bono begins to wail on "Twiliiiiight!" I have to give the album version its props because I just can't stand the original version. Bono sounds like he hasn't quite hit puberty yet on that one...

This is a Twilight I do not know. Does it sound different than on 'Boy?'

its not as good quality. bono's voice has not developed AT ALL on it, which is kind of why i like it. I would say i prefer the Boy version, but this one is still fun to listen to time and again.

The single version is by far the most appalling thing they've ever recorded. Spare your ears!
