Drinking SOTD

For the past few Sundays I've posted songs sung by the Edge and Adam Clayton. This time I'm giving the mic to Larry Mullen Jr., (partly because some director cut him off at the Grammies). I actually like his voice, and the way he sings this one, because I am a huge fan of drinking-songs.

Sent the song to gmail, but the original was from the Larry sound archive at echosphere.net.

So without further ado, from those glorious ZooTV days I bring you...



Dirty Old Town

[somewhat different from the The Pogues version]
I met my love by the gas works wall
I dreamed a dream by the old canal
I kissed my girl by the factory gates
Dirty old town
Dirty old town
I heard a siren from the docks
I saw a train set the night on fire
I smelled the spring on the smoky wind
Dirty old town
Dirty old town
Dirty old town
Dirty old town

Thank you.

From live in Verona Zooropa, I think. Transcribed it meself, so tell me if I got anything wrong.


Take a bow, Larry.

P.S. I've also uploaded "Endless Deep" from last week; not sure if it was done properly, so let me know if you encounter problems... thanks!
