Carefree U2

So most U2 songs are
1. Divine joy songs
2. Worldly troubles songs

However, what song of theirs conveys the most carefree, in the world feeling? Just, happy to be alive...

Off the bat, I think at least the music of Trip Through Your Wires is the most joyous yet worldly song.

Beautiful Day, without a doubt. Both lyrically and musically.

Even Wild Honey, with its carefree sticky honey acoustic guitar gets all emo about still growing wild and honey tress. Pfff, please.

yeah this is a tricky thread with U2. They're not exactly a band content to be "mellow" or uh carefree. Everything is a care!

Miami?

Much as I dislike the song, The Sweetest Thing is pretty carefree.

'Jesus Christ'

If that's not a goofy song, I don't know what is.

I was thinking "Big Girls Are Best" and remembered this bit:

She's ellipitical
Also political
All so spiritual
Not superficial
Yeah, she's tropical
Yes, she's illogical
Those little girls are a pest
Big girls are the best

politics/spirituality/superficiality... I think Bono was subconsciously trying to make this song sound deep.

Angel of Harlem live always seems to bring a smile to their faces.

I think Beautiful Day would fall under the "divine joy" category:
"After the flood all the colors came out" sort of places it there.

Beautiful Day, Elevation, and Vertigo. It's interesting how these songs have propelled U2 to new heights (at least in terms of popularity) post 9/11. They've acted as a kind of joyous wrapping for the deeper songs of the past two albums.
