Song of the Day @ 07:17 pm

sirensong984:
I couldn't choose today's Song of the Day. My head is kinda spacey, I'm studying for finals and preparing to go home for a month. So, naturally, in a fit of procrastination, I decided that now, rather than later, would be the perfect time to listen to the next issue of the Rolling Stone Interview podcast, portion 5. It's about 27 minutes long, and it has Bono talking about some of the albums, up until Rattle and Hum.

I found his discussion of song writing fascinating. I can write papers etc, but poetry and lyrical writings escape me. Apparently Bono just hears things in his head, writes them down, and they're perfect (to me anyway). The song he was talking about, Tomorrow, off of October, was one of particular interest. He said he wrote the song first, and then later discovered what it was about. Apparently it's about going to his mother's funeral, which makes sense. It's a beautiful song, one that I've gotten back into lately, and he didn't even know what it was about initially? Amazing..

So listen, discover, or re-discover Tomorrow and October in general. I have been lately. :)

Have a good day.


Won't you come back tomorrow?
Won't you come back tomorrow?
Won't you come back tomorrow?
Can I sleep tonight?

Outside
Somebody's outside
Somebody's knocking at the door
There's a black car parked
At the side of the road
Don't go to the door
Don't go to the door

I'm going out
I'm going outside mother
I'm going out there

Won't you be back tomorrow?
Won't you be back tomorrow?
Will you be back tomorrow?

Who broke the window?
Who broke down the door?
Who tore the curtain?
And who was it for?
Who healed the wounds?
Who heals the scars?
Open the door
Open the door

Won't you come back tomorrow?
Won't you be back tomorrow?
Will you be back tomorrow?
Can I sleep tonight?

Cause I want you
I, I want... you
I really want you
I, I want
I, I

I want you to be back tomorrow
I want you to be back tomorrow
Will you be back tomorrow?

Won't you be back tomorrow?
Won't you be back tomorrow?
Will you be back tomorrow?

Open up
Open up
To the love of god
To the love of he who made
The light to see you
It's coming back
It's coming back
I believe it

Jesus coming

I'm gonna be there
I'm gonna be there, mother
I'm gonna be there, mother
I'm going out there
I'm going...

We're gonna be there

Tomorrow and October in general... *drool* If only I could find my copy! Damn me and losing CDs in my car... War and UF are lost somewhere in the mess too. :( I have been seriously lacking my 1981-85 U2 fix. (es)
