'One Day' by The Verve: Very Bono-esq. Get's Me Everytime...

This song is probably my favourite from Urban Hymns, which is saying a lot. It brings me back to a certain time and place in my life whenever I hear it. The little falsetto at the beginning is genius in its simplicity. It's like the perfect ballad. But it's not a cheesy ballad by any stretch. It picks you up, allows you to regain your senses. Great, great song. Anyone else agree?

One Day

One day maybe we will dance again
Under fiery skies
One day maybe you will love again
Love that never dies

One day maybe you will see the land
Touch skin with sand
You've been swimming in the lonely sea
With no company

Oh, don't you want to find?
Can't you hear this beauty in life?
The roads, the highs, breaking up your mind
Can't you hear this beauty in life?

One day maybe you will cry again
Just like a child
You've gotta tie yourself to the mast my friend
And the storm will end

Oh, don't you want to find?
Can't you hear this beauty in life?
The times, the highs, breaking up your mind
Can't you hear this beauty in life?

Oh, you're too afraid to touch
Too afraid you'll like it too much
The roads, the times, breaking up your mind
Can't you hear this beauty in life?

One day maybe I will dance again
One day maybe I will love again
One day maybe we will dance again
You know you've gotta
Tie yourself to the mast my friends
And the storm will end
One day maybe you will love again
You've gotta tie yourself to the mast my friend
And the storm will end

I swear you've posted on this before Mike, or at least said you wished U2 would cover it, am I right? It is a lovely song, but there's a whole raft of terrific ballads on the album.

Yes, brettig, now that you bring it up, I think I did post a thread on 'One Day' -- but that was, what, 2 years ago? It's a great song, and I was just listening to it tonight for the first time in quite a while, and I had a rush of all these emotions and feelings come back to me that I hadn't felt since the days I listened to this album all the time. I'm quite spontaneous, so I just had to post something about it. It seemed like the natural thing to do! And yes, there are many other great songs on that album, but this post isn't about them; it's about a song that, incidentally, doesn't get much recognition amongst the heavyweights of the album.

Oh I know! I actually meant the likes of This Time, Weeping Willow...its one of the more consistent albums anyone's put out in recent years.

"Velvet Morning" was The Verve's "Bad."

Anyone know what MadRich is singing at the end of "Come On"?
Sounds like "Fuck You, this is a fix" over and over.
