[conan] - HP

Song of the Day

Today's Selection is...

"Bad" from The Unforgettable Fire

This song was a sleeper for me. Something I would always skip to get to "Where the Streets Have No Name" in the Best Of... cd. Then somehow this song just clicked for me. I love the drums. Especially when Larry bounces from playing the cymbals back to drums and back to cymbals. For me, it's the whole song. I don't even hear lyrics until Bono starts to shout "Wide awake!!!!"
Huh. I guess that's the purpose.

Edges guitar also makes me happy in this song. It's probably one of the most recognizable songs by it's first few notes just cause of that.

Favorite lyrics:
This desperation, dislocation
Separation, condemnation
Revelation, in temptation
Isolation, desolation

Condensation, reclamation
