[conan] - HP

Song of the Day

Today's Selection is...

"Walk On" from All That You Can't Leave Behind.

Anthemic. Bold. Creative. Demanding. Etcetera, etcetera, etcetera...
There are not enough adjectives to describe the feelings this song provokes. It is the beating heart of the album. Perfectly nestled between this high pumping track and a song about letting go. It's the median. It doesn't leave anything behind.
I wish I had been a bigger u2 fan at the time this song was released, it probably would have meant so much more to me when it was released in October of 2001. A break from nothing but non-stop news coverage and a depression that was covering this nation as a whole.
If anything, this song proves that u2 is now. u2 is for this era. u2 is for this generation. For everyone living, right now.
It's been in my head all weekend, and I tinkered with it on guitar last night finding the chords relatively easy to find.
