Song of the Day

Today's Selection is...

"I Will Follow" from Boy


If you were around in 1980, never hearing of U2, picked up Boy and listen to the first track on it, you would be an instant U2 fan. So much so that this song still holds up today. The song itself is craziness, conforming more to the title Out of Control. It's fast paced, energetic, danceable (just don't dance like Bono) and popish.
I annoyed my friends one day when the "your eyes make a circle, your eyes, yo-yo-your eyes, your eyes, yo-yo-yo yo your eyes!" part got stuck in my head and I kept repeating it subconsciously.

The song is a homage to Bono's mother, whom he lost in 1974, when he was 14.

Hands down, their best video ever. I don't think I've ever laughed so much by myself. I can reupload the video, if you'd like, or you can watch a small clip of it here. Click on "video"
Aww, it's cute Edge! Dance like no one is watching! It's the entire song, really.

All Because Of You

Whoa, I only just realised that "I was born a child of grace" is a reference to Bono being born on a Tuesday. I'm probably the last person to figure that out, but it made me go "Heh!" anyway. ;p
