Or....since we are on the Rattle n' Hum track......

How about Hawkmoon 269.....and such lyrical imagery that would make most poets cry......

such as ....

Like coming home
And you don't know where you've been
Like black coffee
Like nicotine
I need your love (I need your love)

When the night has no end
And the day yet to begin
As the room spins around
I need your love

Like a Phoenix rising needs a holy tree
Like the sweet revenge of a bitter enemy
I need your love

Like the hot needs the sun
Like honey on her tongue
Like the muzzle of a gun
Like oxygen
I need your love (I need your love)
When the night has no end
And the day yet to begin
As the room spins around
I need your love

Like thunder needs rain
Like a preacher needs pain
Like tongues of flame
Like a sheet stained
I need your love
I need your love

Like a needle needs a vein
Like someone to blame
Like a thought unchained
Like a runaway train
I need your love

Like faith needs a doubt
Like a freeway out
I need your love

Like powder needs a spark
Like lies need the dark
I need your love

I was talking to a mate about this last night. He used to be a fan but has gone off them in the last few years. He went to some Lovetown shows back in the day, I was telling him last night how they've only played Hawkmoon about 7 times and he was at one of the shows to hear it and how jealous I am.

Grande....

Happy New year!!! 2018...

I am hopeful....New Year....new beginning, to learn from past mistakes and grow.......for humankind.....to learn to be  more "kind".....

Anyway...

Rattle n' Hum is masterful work.....full of boundless creativity and exploration......truly "fearless"......and that is when U2 is at it's best......

It may have not been understood by the masses....but when is innovation excepted......? Not when it's first introduced...and it takes time for people to digest what is not familiar or different. Rattle n' hum is appreciated now....more than then ever.. I believe U2 were always proud of it.....regardlesseg of the criticisms.

I miss fearless U2...... full of piss n' vinegar.....yet, also romantic, spiritual and sensitive......

I love the heavy lyrics mixed with Bono's raw voice....particularly in this song.....still sends chills down my spine....

"like a preacher  needs pain,,,,like a needle needs a vein.....like someone to blame.....the contrasting imagery......very powerful.

Or....like BB king said to Bono:

"Mighty heavy lyrics for a young man".... WHEN LOVE COMES TO TOWN....

I was there when they crucified my Lord
I held the scabbard when the soldier drew his sword.
I threw the dice when they pierced his side
But I've seen love conquer the great divide.
 

Rattle n' hum is true art....and transcendent in form......Musicians/singers of today should learn from them and do less criticizing.....if they were smart.
