Song of the Day

Song of the Day


Song of the Day today is "If God Will Send His Angels (Single Version)"


This used to be one of my favorite songs off my favorite album, Pop. For some reason it reminds me of the holidays, I think maybe because of the short Christmas tree reference and partly because I bought the single back in '97 nearing Christmas. It's one of my favorite singles of all time, having both IGWSHA, as well as "Slow Dancing" and "Two Shots of Happy, One Shot of Sad". It's a single I still come back to over and over, and a song that I think stands out in the entire U2 collection. I even saw this song performed live once, though it was about half the song and kinda of...bad ;) They tried, and I am forever lucky that I heard it that once. At any rate, I love this song. I think the lyrics, just like all the other songs on Pop, are out of this world.


Enough of my love-fest with Pop :) Tomorrow I will try to post pictures of the most unusual, but rather nice Christmas present I've ever been presented--a purse sewed directly from an old copy of a Rolling Stone with U2 on the cover, making the front, and a photo of Bono on the back. It's interesting, to say the least.



Nobody else here baby
No one here to blame
No one to point the finger
It's just you and me and the rain

It's the blind leading the blond
It's the stuff, it's the stuff of country songs

Hey if God will send his angels
And if God will send a sign
And if God will send his angels
Would everything be alright?

(Would everything)

God has got his phone off the hook, babe
Would he even pick up if he could?
It's been a while since we saw that child
Hanging 'round this neighbourhood
You see his mother dealing in a doorway
See Father Christmas with a begging bowl
Jesus sister's eyes are a blister
The High Street never looked so low

It's the blind leading the blond
It's the cops collecting for the cons

If God will send his angels
And if God will send a sign
And if God will send his angels
Where do we go?
Where do we go?

Jesus never let me down
You know Jesus used to show me the score
Then they put Jesus in show business
Now it's hard to get in the door / Angel, angel

It's the stuff, it's the stuff of country songs
But I guess it was something to go on
So where is the hope and where is the faith
And the love... what's that you say to me
Does love... light up your Christmas Tree
The next minute you're blowing a fuse
And the cartoon network turns into the news

If God will send his angels
I sure could use them here right now
Well if God would send his angels

And I don't have to know how / So where do we go
And I don't need to know why
And I don't want to promise / So where do we go
'Cause I don't want to lie
Just when I need to / So where do we go
Tonight...
Now...

(Soulless, soul down by your door)
