I'm currently feelin: chipper chipper
I'm currently hearin: Miracle Drug

"Freedom has a scent like the top of a newborn baby's head."

Anyone else utter a huge "awwwww!" after hearing that one? ;)
Beautiful lyrics all throughout the album. Good job, Bono (and in some cases Edge).


**EDIT**
Goddamn, nevermind! Apparently no one likes this line. Forget I said anything.

My personal response was more of an "Huh?!"

Mine has still remained "Huh?". That's one of those Bono lines that makes most people think that he's on something...

That song lyric just didn't make much sense to me when I first heard it and it hasn't really added up since then.

I wasn't crazy about the line but I understand it coming from him, mostly by him being a dad and all.

I guess as a metaphor it would work with being a Dad, but that still doesn't make the lyrics make any sense to me.

it's funny (well to me at least) that i was reading the spin article about them and i was up to when they were talking about miracle drug and that same lyric and i was listening to HTDAAB on that same song and it was right on that lyric. sorta hard to understand with my wording...

anyway, i love the album. :) beautiful

I think that those lyrics are absolutely ridiculous.

Well, personally, there's just something slightly off about it - it doesn't work to me as an image - I guess it fits in, in the song, but it didn't strike me as great.

I don't like dismantling How to Dismantle... but lyrics debates are interesting.

That's the only line on the whole album that I don't like!  Most of the lyrics are beautiful but that one just doesn't do it for me.

I've never smelled a newborn baby's head, so I don't quite comprehend the comparison!

Suffice it to say that I bet it feels great to smell your baby, if you're into that whole parenting thing ;)

All I know is that I love how he sings that line.

Jesus, people are fucking picky.. ya know?

I *LOVE* that lyric.

Then again I've had three babies and I've nursed them and bathed them and I will never forget the wonderful smell of them. Apparently these people have never had a baby or held a new baby - either that or their sense of smell is gone and they aren't feeling to free.

The B-man knows what he is talking about, that is all I can say =)

Couldn't have explained it better myself.

Though not a mother myself, I have gone through 5 births in about 4 years (thanks to my wonderfully fertile cousins, lol) and there is nothing like the smell of a baby.

just got the cd last night, listened to it in the cab on the way to work this morning: that particular lyric struck me as both odd and appropriate (and something that only bono could get away with). anyone who has ever been around new babies knows about that baby scent, indescribable but good and yeah... just thought I'd let ya know that I agree with you ;)
