Dirty Day appreciation

This is my favourite song from zooropa.
This has one of the sexist vocals of the album and a great adam bassline performance.

Quality song just to relax to on ya bed and gather ya thoughts.

Lyrically its nothing to boast about but in a funny sort of a way its almost like a story.

What does this song mean btw ?

top song

The remix on 2nd Best Of, 2nd disc is superior to Zooropa version. Both are good tho, I just prefer the remix. It's louder and more industrial.

You need to get a copy of Zooropa.

the album version sucks something awful, but the live versions are great.

my favorite is 1993-11-16 Adelaide

Thanks for posting this link, but nobody mentioned the very simple fact that a bad day was a "Dirty Day" according to Bono's father.

Definitely one of my favorite tunes too.

It's so great to hear U2 singing about something dark and generally unwholesome, in stark opposition to Crumbs from your table.
I think that Dirty Day is the anti-Crumbs from your table, and is all the better for it.
I hope that wherever Charles Bukowski is he's enjoying a triple vodka with a beautiful babe on his arm!!

Why U2 has only played this a hand full of shows still baffles me.

I love this song! It's my third favourite of Zooropa. Love the voice, the lyrics...
"You can't even remember
What I'm trying to forget"...
And I like that fact that it's a little different from the others.
