Today's Selection is...
"If God Will Send His Angels" from Pop
I watched "City of Angels" once, the entire way through, to hear this song. And it never came out. It even says it on my VHS sleeve! NEW SONG BY U2! ::kicks film editors::
At the beginning of my SotD duties, I was unsure with the entire album of Pop. I was unsure of the kind of psyche the band was in while writing it, and I easily sympathized with the critics who had given it a bad review. Three months later, it's my second favorite U2 album.
I'm in love with the entire ambiance of this song. Right down to that little guitar riff (you know what I'm talking about, "Doooo, do do do do Dooo" to the bass that nearly made my speaker explode this morning. Damn you Adam! Larry is superb, his beat is...guh. I heart Bono in this song and in the video (which is brilliant.) Some of his lyrics here are just plain genius.God has got his phone off the hook, babe
Would he even pick up if he could
And come on, the Cartoon Network turning into the news? I love it. I think it's such a great criticsm of society.
Confidently: My favorite song off of Pop.( Collapse )
