i love it because of its structure or lack there-of.

plus it sounds cool and the lyrics seem more like a poem being recited.

Miami is one of my favorite songs from Pop, particularly live. Amazing stuff.

I also really enjoyed the reworked version of Bullet from that tour.. good stuff.

Oh what I would give to go back in time to stand in the crowd at a popmart show again..

Totally agree.
Great songs, great lyrics, it was brilliant listening to Alan Ginesberg reciting the lyrics on the Popmart special just before he died.

Weather 'round here chopping and changing
Surgery in the air
Print shirts and southern accents
Cigars and big hair
We got the wheels, petrol's cheap
We only went there for a week
Got the sun, got the sand
Got the batteries in the handycam...

Her eyes are swimming pool blue
Dumb bells on a diving board
Baby's always attracted to the things she's afraid of
Big girl with the sweet tooth
Watches the skinny girl in the photo shoot
Freshmen, squeaky clean
She tastes of chlorine
(Miami), my mammy

Love the movies babe
Love to walk through the movie sets
Get to shoot someone in the foot
Get to smoke some cigarettes
No big deal we know the score
Just back from the video store
Got the car and the car chase
What's he got inside the case
I want a close up of that face
Here comes the car chase

I bought two new suits... Miami
Pink and blue... Miami
I took a picture of you... My mammy
Getting hot in a photo booth... Miami
I said you looked like a Madonna
You said maybe...
Said I want to have your baby... baby, baby
We could make something beautiful
Something that wouldn't be a problem
We could make something beautiful
Something that wouldn't be a problem
At least not in Miami

You know some places are like your auntie
But there's no place like
Miami, my mammy
Miami, my mammy
(Keys are in the car)
(Miami, my mammy)
Miami, my mammy

(Shake, shake down)
(Shake down...)



MIAMI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mofo, Miami are my 2 faves from POP

I dig Miami because like Mofo and the Fly,

it shows the non-politico Bono (which I don't always have a problem with)

It's a weird rock song. Take it or leave it. That's what I love about the Pop album. It's got balls. (or mamaries for the supergirls out there).

When I first bought the Pop cassette, Miami was the song I listened to the most. I just recently heard a live version of it and I love it even more now. Great song, I love that drum beat

For a Loris to poop on!

In all seriousness, not a good album song, but I appreciate it for what it is. Fun beat like poetry, great imagery. I like the line, "Surgery in the air".
