I can't remember, but I think i like the other version of stolen car better than this one. But still, probably the 2nd or 3rd best song on this album.

Don't want to lose my shirt
Don't want to dig the dirt
Don't want you to get hurt
Can't help that I'm a flirt

Don't want to take your drugs
Don't want to be your slug
Don't want to overdress
Don't want to make a mess
Don't want you to confess
Not under duress

What's your interpretation Atlantic City?, I don't often deluge much into deep and meaningfuls, with songs.
well mostly my thoughts are based on that episode of Cold Case that made an episode out of the song's plot

But I pretty much figure that what happens is the main character in the song got too caught up into gambling and racked up some debt, so in order to clear it he's going to do a job for a guy (probably mob related) and I don't think he expects to come back from it, so he's taking his girl out one last time, and he's trying to get her to understand that it will all be ok.

Something like that.

Best song on the album, you mean, Ian.

I'd die if U2 played Slug live.

Don't want to be untrue
I want to be with you

Don't want to lose my nerve
Don't want to clothe the curve
Don't want to make you swerve
Don't want what I deserve

My one complaint is that this intro could stand to be shorter.

Now, if there's any song from Passengers other than Miss Sarajevo that actually has a reasonable chance of being played live, it's got to be Your Blue Room. Given how much Bono likes it, I'm surprised it's never been done - though it does make me worry about the band's sets being a bit too calculated nowadays.

1. Your Blue Room
2. Beach Sequence
3. Slug/Miss Sarajevo.


I'd die if U2 played any of this live (excluding, obviously, Miss Sarajevo)
