>> STARING AT THE SUN

02 Sep

I’ve been playing this over and over for the past couple of months. I know a lot of people don’t rate U2‘s Pop album, but this, If God Would Send His Angels and particularly Please, with its powerful video by Anton Corbijn, are eerie, haunting songs – up there with the best that U2 have written.

The lyrics that stand out in this for me are these:

Cos those that can’t do

Often have to

And those that can’t do

Often have to preach

To the ones

Staring at the sun

Afraid of what you’ll find

If you took a look inside…

Sure, it’s not perfect. Bono’s comments on “armour-plated suits and ties” are just embarrassing. But all the same, I’ve got a lot of love for this.
