Today's Selection is...
“Trip Through Your Wires” from The Joshua Tree.
I am in love with this song. It’s one of my favourite songs off of The Joshua Tree, and that’s saying something. It’s disappointing how much this song is criticized as being “kiss-off” and “too light” , because I feel it fits in perfectly with the rest of the album.
I love Bono’s harmonica-playing-ness.
I’ve always liked the sound of Edge’s guitar in the background on this song; the intensely high part at around 1:35 in the song. And of course the yelps and howls in the song, and Edge’s harmony vocals. It’s so much fun to sing along to.
