[conan] - HP

Song of the Day

Today's Selection is...

"El-e-va-tion" from All That You Can't Leave Behind


"Melodic Speed"

Image hosted by Photobucket.comThis song is seriously a pick-me-up kind of song. Everything from the whooo! whooo! to moles digging in holes. The bridge part in this song used to be so horrible for me for some reason, but I've really learned to love it. Really really love it. I love that there are two voices there singing it and they don't really match up but it sounds excellent anyways. It's my favorite part of the song now because of how it stops and builds right back up to where it used to be. It goes from like 0-60 in 2 seconds! Musically, the winner is the background acoustic guitar that's barely noticable but it really adds something to the lead distorted guitar. (It starts at :52, you can really hear it if you listen to the left earphone only). Is it Edge? Is it Bono? I have no clue. I'm guessing cause I don't have my booklet with me. :P
The lyrics are anything you want and nothing you can concieve of.

Favorite lyrics:
Maybe you could educate my mind
Explain all these controls
I can't sing but I've got soul
The goal is elevation

Misc: The video for this song is actually the Tomb Raider Mix and not the real song. And didn't Edge say he got really dizzy filming that video? I seem to remember a quote of his where he says, "The things I do for rock 'n roll" or something to that effect. Hehe.
