Bad

it's like the soundtrack to the moment in your life when this ENORMOUS swell just comes in front of you, and is about to crash on you but when it does it's suddenly sooo warm and cleansing and you don't even notice the loud noise of the water rushing in your ears or as you drown.. my God I love this song!

how can someone who was MY age have written it??!?!?!?

I love that it's so unexplainable, just this Emotion that comes over you, how it's a staple to U2 fans and I'd guess on nearly everyone's top 5 list. It just makes me *tremble*!

Bad is one of my favourite songs -- a really, really good song, IMO.

"You must not look down on someone just 'cos they are 14 years old. When I was that age I listened to the music of John Lennon and it changed my way of seeing things, so I'm just glad that 14 year olds are coming to see U2 rather than group X." - Bono, 1988

Bad was the first U2 song I ever heard, way way back when I was 13, I couldn't put into words how that song made me feel but its something very similar to that.

I'm 30 now and it still has the same impact, and I still can't it explain properly

One of the best emotional lines from Bono is, "I'm wide Awake......I'm not sleeping."
That line could summerize his life.

Beautiful, Beautiful. I feel like I could live inside this song. It always makes me cry but somehow fills me with utter joy. Beautiful.

Yep! The stuff Bono wrote at such a young age just amazes me beyond belief!

I will never, ever have enough words, in any language, to describe how much I love Bad...my first and definitive U2 song. It means a lot to me.

BAD - it leaves you breathless,
it leaves you speechless -
like an out of body experience
searing and soaring through my
earphones,
and mere mortals wrote this,
so young and so passionate.
He's right, you know -
sometimes God does walk through the
room.


Best Bad - Wide Awake in America !!
Only ever play live versions

I love Bad too. I especially like the Live in Dublin from 1993 version. I have a crappy taped version but I still love it. Maybe I should hunt around and find a mp3 cut.

"Bad" shows early on that The Edge is not the only genius in the band.

A remote room lit by a single sputtering bulb
The night already almost run its course
Sleep? - a fading aspiration

Shoulders slouch, eyes sliver, thoughts tangle

Idly reach a finger to a switch - >
A faint whirr, a tick, as mechanics summon
A wash of whispered resonance

Shoulders heave in weary yawn, attention turns

An earnest shimmer of synthetic bells
Murmured bass over a bed of strings
A tender guitar flits over harmony. A voice.

Shoulders relax, lids seal, attention holds

A subtle build, and one last tranquil break.
Then beats beat faster, and rhythm drives harder
A plaintive cry as a delicate torrent surges
Restless torments purged in a sonic tide of healing

Shoulders quiver, eyes widen, transcendent joy
