Song of the Day - Wayback Weekend!

Today I've got a rare bird for you my lovelies; one of U2's few ventures into instrumental tracks. From the second Single Pac release in 1982 comes

Things To Make And Do

This was the B-side to A Day Without Me, a startlingly upbeat and busily bouncy track to pair with the suicidal ideation of the song inspired by, and dedicated to, Ian Curtis of the Joy Division. The riff from this track found its way into a live version of another song; can you name it?

I will elaborate when I don't have a shrieking migraine.
Happy Easter tomorrow to those who observe it. :)
