Song of the Day
Hello, I'm the new Sunday/Monday Song of the Dayer. Today's edition is a little late, due to my part fouling up when I was supposed to start, but it's all taken care of.
Let me introduce myself in "U2 terms" and personal terms as well. I'm (almost, so very close to being) 21, I am a junior in college (political science major, religious studies minor) and have always lived in Tennessee. I became a U2 fan back in '97 when my Grandmother forced me into going to see a Popmart show. Since then I've been running off seeing them in all kinds of places. My last show was this tour--Chicago. My next one is Atlanta.
Today's selection is..A Celebration
Commercially released in March of 1982 but never made it to an album. This is one of my favorite U2 songs, though I've never been a big fan of the earlier things like I have been the 90s things, just because it appeals to me more. I do love early things, I just have my preferences. Anyhow, my favorite part of this song is the "And you..can GO! GO! GO!" part, though I find these lyrics pretty clever all together. Larry gets some mean drumming in, also!
Have you seen the video for this? Bono's red pants, running up and down a spiral staircase, it's great.
My latest observation on this song? The line "...I believe in the atomic bomb" Very
interesting, considering the latest release. :) It's almost like a precursor of something they'd never dreamed of. Similar to the Stories for Boys reference in Vertigo. ( Collapse )
