(I apologize for deleting the previous entry, I felt lazy this morning, made the entry in "richtext", then found I needed to edit a tag, and it messed everything up. I ran off to the cafeteria and didn't notice it was wacked out..sorry. That's what I get for being slacking today..)
Today's selection is
Don't Come Knocking from the "Don't Come Knocking Original Soundtrack"
Written by Bono and The Edge,
performed by Andrea Corr, Bono, and The Edge
This song was available for streaming play/download from U2.com for the first time about a month ago, perhaps longer.
I was pretty excited about it, as I loved Bono and The Corrs voice combination on "When the Stars Go Blue", the Ryan Adams song. Bono + a female voice always pleases me, I think. His voice seems
a little shakey at first here, but that could perhaps be intentional...The lyrics here are, in my opinion, more well written than some of Bono's recent works..
The music and lyrics of this song remind me a lot of "North and South of the River", but I'm not sure if that's a result of the solely Bono/Edge combination or what... at any rate it's a good little tune that is staying stuck in my head lately.
"I won't bring you roses, I'll bring myself instead" To which I say, any time, Bono, any time..( Collapse )
