Song of the Day #1,765: ‘Where the Streets Have No Name’ – U2

Best song opening ever.

I want to run
I want to hide
I want to tear down the walls
That hold me inside
I want to reach out
And touch the flame
Where the streets have no name

I want to feel, sunlight on my face
See that dust cloud disappear without a trace
I want to take shelter from the poison rain
Where the streets have no name

Where the streets have no name
Where the streets have no name
Were still building
Then burning down love, burning down love
And when I go there
I go there with you…
(Its all I can do)

The cities a flood
And our love turns to rust
Were beaten and blown by the wind
Trampled into dust
Ill show you a place
High on the desert plain
Where the streets have no name

Where the streets have no name
Where the streets have no name
Still building
Then burning down love
Burning down love
And when I go there
I go there with you
(Its all I can do)

    So fresh off our discussion yesterday, we have the critically praised oh so self important political-ish anthem wailed by Bono. Yet you love this song?

    Give me the iconic opening of “”Hotel California” all day long and twice on Sunday.

    The Random iTunes Fairy does have a good sense of humor.

    And you are stubbornly and intentionally ignoring what makes this song great. :-)

    You are now stubbornly and intentionally ignoring what makes my observation so wise :P
