Today's Selection is...
“Xanax and Wine” from Unreleased And Rare.
An early, or perhaps later version of “Fast Cars”.
I like this song and “Fast Cars” about equally, for different reasons. “Xanax and Wine” has a more “rocking” feel to it, and although it seems a bit more raw than “Fast Cars,” I think that the sound really works for the song. I love the chorus much more than “Fast Cars”s chorus, just because, well, it has more of a chorus. I love the way Bono sings “Xanax, and wiiiiine!” and I like the “Don’t you worry ‘bout your mind” part a lot more in this song, with Edge answering with “’Cause I worry all the time…”
Such a cool song. It's so much fun to sing along to.
EDIT: Thanks to zoostation, the song is now available for download at u2usendit at gmail. The password is vertigou2.
