Today's Selection is...
"Heartland" from Rattle And Hum.
When I first purchased Rattle and Hum, I skipped over this song on the first listening in favor of other, more popular tunes such as "Desire" and "Angel of Harlem".
I didn’t really know what I was missing until a trip to Arizona found me listening to Rattle and Hum on my CD player. It was morning, and we were somewhere in Missouri. I remember seeing the sun rising over the scenery, and this song was playing on my CD player. It was definitely an amazing moment.
I love this song for its shimmering guitars and Bono’s vocals, and especially at the end of the song, the last “heaaaaaaaaartland!” The last minute of the song alone is amazing.
