with U2’s Pop creation yesterday. It had been awhile since I listened to it, so long that all I could find was the CD cover, not the CD. But I was really in the mood for it, so I downloaded it from iTunes (very cheap, I might add) and off I went. Although not well received when it was first published, I think it is one of their best, if not their best album of all. Adam Clayton’s bass runs are featured throughout and are bursting with energy, a stark contrast to the lyrics.
As usual, the boys were in the midst of another search for their Creator when they penned these songs. And for meaning, a common thread through all of their albums. I think that the style was so different from their previous work that people just turned away without trying to grasp the ideas in the songs. Very nice stuff.
You get to feel so guilty – got so much for so little
Then you find that feeling just won’t go away
You’re holding on to every little thing so tightly
Till there’s nothing left for you anyway
If God Will Send His Angels
Jesus never let me down
You know Jesus used to show me the score
Then they put Jesus in show business
Now it’s hard to get in the door
