Song of the Day Goodness

Alright.  Everybody get out their maces and clubs and await volare 's hacker to show.


... just kidding, that got boring.  But much luck to him!

Just for verification, based on this post, we seem to have a new SotD line-up for you.  The more the merrier!
Sundays - inklingfair
Mondays - sirensong984
Tuesdays - stay_please
Wednesdays - sapphires13  (eh? eh?)
Thursdays - bonoffee
Fridays - volare
Saturdays - volare

If anyone seems to disagree here, lemme know.  I like adding people, differing opinions and whatnot.  Plus, it'll make it easier when people have only a day (or two) to commit to.

So, while volare is cursing under his breath, I'll swoop in and sub. Without further ado...

"Lemon (Oakenfold Jeep Mix)" from the Lemon single

Another remix that trumps the original, I think.  But this time, I like the original, too.  I <3 Lemon, but it's a tad long.  This cuts it off just on the long side of average at 5:30 instead of being an epic seven minutes.

I lurve the intro, all Larry.  It's pretty much the same rhythm, but louder.  I'm not too fond of the string-slides that play after each line in the verses.  They sound too close to nails on glass or chalkboards, to me.  I also like the we spend less time with the falsetto.  (Okay, so I have sensitive ears and don't like high-pitches, what about it?) Edge's guitar sounds are wonderful through the "and I feel..." lines.  Much better than the strings.

Lemon, and Zooropa, holds some of Bono's best work, I say.  Another mommy song, the "she" wearing lemon (or lime, if you're Pla) is her, in Bono's memory.  "Midnight is where the day begins," is one of the greatest lines ever.

Lemon (Jeep Mix)


See through in the sunlight
She wore lemon
But never in the daylight
She's gonna make you cry
She's gonna make you whisper and moan
And when you're dry
She draws her water from the stone

And I feel
Like I'm slowly, slowly, slowly slipping under
And I feel
Like I'm holding onto nothing

She wore lemon / Alright
To colour in the cold grey night / Alright
She had heaven / Alright
And she held on so tight / Alright

A man makes a picture
A moving picture
Through the light projected
He can see himself up close
A man captures colour / Come on baby
A man likes to stare / Little boy
He turns his money into light
To look for her

And I feel
Like I'm drifting, drifting, drifting from the shore
And I feel
Like I'm swimming out to her

Midnight is where the day begins


A man builds a city
With banks and cathedrals
A man melts the sand so he can
See the world outside, You're gonna meet her there
A man makes a car, She's your destination
And builds a road to run them on, You gotta get to her
A man dreams of leaving / She's imagination
But he always stays behind

And these are the days
When our work has come asunder
And these are the days
When we look to each other

Midnight is where the day begins / Hey, won't you come in?
Midnight is where the day begins / Hey, won't you come in?
Mmm-hi... hey there summer love/ Alright
Mmm-hi... sound your pipe there pete/ Alright
Mmm-hi... the day begins in love/ Alright
Midnight... is where the day begins / Alright
