Song of the Day

I played my Discotheque single on the ipod the other day, and was very happy again. So I knew that my song of the day had to be

Holy Joe (Guilty Mix) from the 1997 Discotheque single.


For a very, very long time this was my favorite U2 song. Random, I know, but for some reason I loved this and couldn't quit singing it. Before I moved to college and everything went bottom-side-up in my room, I had a video of them doing the Popmart tour announcement in K-Mart, and performing this song. The interview was witty and cute, and the song was good too. I certainly understand why it didn't make the final cut of Pop (in most countries, at least!), but I still find it a very good song. The lyrics are, at times, a bit scattered but it oddly enough contains some of my favorite lines of all time, too. "Having the best time of anybody's life, closer than ever to everybody's wife..." This was one of my first impressions of U2, and it stuck.

I still love this song. Enjoy the
I... I'm a humble guy
No really I try
You know it's hard sometimes

True... and hard working too
Workin it to get to see you
Shimmer, shake the shampoo
(This is a D)

Come on, come on
Come on, come on, be good to me
Come on, come on
Come on, come on, I've been good to me
Here it comes
Here it comes
Holy Joe

Please... don't make me say please
Champagne and ice cream, yeah
It's not what I want it's what I need

Precocious... just a little precocious
Expialidocious
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Devotion... and some appreciation
Little heavy rotation
Looks good on me

You know it's not hard
I could think of a lot harder
Oh yeah

Just wanted our moment
To last a little longer
Oh yeah

Come on, come on
Come on, come on, be good to me
Come on, come on
Come on, come on, be good to me
Here it comes
Here it comes
Holy Joe

I'm totally messed up in everybody's life
Closer than ever to everybody's wife
Yeah... oh oh

Come on come on
Come on, come on, be good to me (oh child)
Come on, come on
Come on, come on, be good to me
Come on, come on
Come on, come on, be good to me
Come on, come on
Come on come on come on come on, be true
Here it comes
Here it comes
Holy Joe
