Did I ask too much?

Song of the Day (With a twist!)

Yes, I've been slacking with the SOTDs, but I just feel like everything I could cover has already been covered, and if I can't do anything different, then what's the point of doing it at all? But, I have something up my sleeve.

"If God Will Send His Angels" from Pop

Now I know what you're saying, this song has been covered twice already (plus the single version once), but never fear, I have something different for you today. Today's SOTD is not your typical SOTD. I'm not going to delve into every aspect of the song, and pick apart interpretations like usual. Today I'm going to give this song a video. And yes, I know that it already has a video, and a fairly neat one at that (I was so proud the day I finally watched the director's commentary to find that I had been dead right about the way I'd assumed it was filmed). But today I'm giving it a different video.
Creating music videos in my head is something I've been doing for years, but for some reason, I just can't do it with U2 songs, and I think that's because U2 videos usually don't have hardly anything to do with the song, and the videos I like to make in my head are usually like very short films. I'm an expert at making Matchbox Twenty videos in my head, but U2, not so much. So coming up with this was a rare occurance, but I was listening to Pop the other day, and this song came on, and it all just sort of clicked in my head.
