Indian Summer Sky

Does everyone agree with me that this is one of the greatest tracks off UF, it's gotta be up there with ASOH, Pride, Bad and Wire. It's like a show of whats to come in JT, hinting at their sadness and love for America. The Bass and Guitar are excellent, Adams busy bassline and Edge's surreal guitar...

The song rocks. I love the imagery conveyed in the lyrics as well.

They played it live quite a few times. Here is Milan, Feb. 4, 1985.

Am I right in saying that this song is the result of bono making it up as the recording progressed (ad-libbing) and it took one take to complete? Am sure that it was Eno that challenged him to do it. Am positive I read that many moons ago

If Wire is the dark heart of The Unforgettable Fire, Indian Summer Sky is its positive opposite. A beautifuul song.

ISS is a very good song...but one of the greatest on UF? I dunno about that

I'll take Bad and Promenade any day over ISS.

Pride
Bad
UF
ISS

That's how I would go on UF's top 4 songs, with 4th of July coing in last, even as a set-piece or intor, it's not very good at all, not as good as Bass Trap for instance.

I love this song, I really do, but a lot of the emotional impact of it was originally taken away because it comes after Bad in the Track listing. It was as if all the wind was taken out of its sails. But on one of my multiple hundreds of listenings to UNFORGETTABLE FIRE, Indian Summer Sky earned a permanent place in my heart.

I really don't like Indian Summer Sky. It's a song that just kinda goes nowhere imo. It's a strange song. Doesn't surprise me that they didn't play it live after the UF Tour (i think anyway).

Then again i hated Like A Song from War for ages but i eventually came round and now i really like it so maybe ISS will get the same treatment...

listen to it through headphones while going to sleep, you might like it in a different way.
