Song Of The Day

It appears we haven't done any '80s material since September 2008! So here's one that hasn't been covered (apart from the Red Rocks performance):

Trash, Trampoline and the Party Girl

The B-side to the standalone single 'A Celebration', produced by Steve Lillywhite and released in March 1982. It was also the final track on The Best Of 1980-1990 & B-Sides. More recently it was included on the bonus disc of the remastered October album, as well as last year's U2.com subscription gift Medium, Rare & Remastered. It's simple, catchy and fun, and rather surprisingly has become an enduring live favourite - something the A-side didn't even achieve!

My next SOTD will be an epic. Stay tuned.
