Song of the Day

"Dirty Day" from Zooropa

I have really never cared for this song. I think it is, by far, the weakest track on Zooropa. Yes, I even place it above 'Babyface,' the winner of U2's least favorite song poll. It is so amorphous, it doesn't really go anywhere, the music doesn't even change until 3:45 or so. Not in tempo, in sound, in anything... it's just there. The lyrics are hardly sung. Even in falsetto Bono sounds like he's talking.

Dirty Day

I don't know you, you don't know the half of it.
I had a starring role. I was the bad guy who walked out.
They say be careful where you aim
Because where you aim you might just hit.
You can hold onto something so tight
You've already lost it.
Dragging me down, that's not the way it used to be.
You can't even remember what I'm trying to forget.

It was a dirty day, dirty day.
Looking for explanations I don't even understand.
If you need someone to blame, throw a rock in the air, you'll hit someone guilty.

From father to son, in one life has begun
A work that's never done, father to son.

(Love, it won't last kissin' time).
(Love, it won't last kissin' time).
(Love, it won't last kissin' time).

Get it right, there's no blood thicker than ink.
Hear what I say, nothing's as simple as you think.
Wake up, some things you can't get around
I'm in you, more so when they put me in the ground.

The days, days, days run away like horses over the hill.

ETA: All I have to do is dislike a song to get you guys to actually discuss it?! I hate every U2 song from here on... keep the comments coming! ;-)
