Song of the day 27-7 - Zooropa

This used to be a daily thread by i think isabelle_guns
as there are lots of new people i think we can put it on repeat

read the lyrics and listen to the song before you comment

Zooropa
What do you want
What do you want

Zooropa
Vorsprung durch Technik
Zooropa
Be all that you can be
Be a winner, eat to get thinner

Zooropa
A bluer kind of white
Zooropa
It could be yours tonight
We're mild and green and squeaky clean

What do you want
What do you want
Combien encore
What do you want
Que veux-tu faire
What do you want
Combien encore

Zooropa
Better by design
Zooropa
Fly the friendly skies
Through applience of science we've got that ring of confidence

And I have no compass and I have no map
And I have no reasons, no resons to get back
And I have no religion and I don't know what's what
And I don't know the limit, the limit of what we got

Zooropa
Don't worry baby, it'll be alright
Zooropa
You've got the right shoes to get you through the night
Zooropa
It's cold outside but brightly lit
Zooropa
Skip the subway, let's go to the overground
Get your head out of the mud baby
Put flowers in the mud, baby, overground

No particular place names, no particular song
I've been hiding, what am I hiding from

Zooropa
Don't worry baby, it's gonna be alright
Zooropa
Uncertainty can be a guiding light
Zooropa
I hear voices, ridiculous voices
I'm in the slipstream
Zooropa
Let's go, let's go overground
Take your head out of the mud baby

She's gonna dream up the world she wants to live in
She's gonna dream out loud
Dream out loud
Dream out loud

Why is this being ignored? Good idea Cassis

Zooropa is one if the greatest album openers, and in the same-name album, I only prefer Stay.

Good melody, some great lines

And I have no compass and I have no map
And I have no reasons, no resons to get back
And I have no religion and I don't know what's what
And I don't know the limit, the limit of what we got

And after 4:00 this song is one of U2 greatest moments.

This song is actually my second favourite U2 song ever.

I hear voices, ridiculous voices
I'm in the slipstream
Let's go, let's go overground...

Only the guitar solo in Until The End Of The World beats this moment. Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant.
I love this song.

An overlooked masterpiece.

Ian McCulloch the U2 fan:
"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
"And as for Bono, he needs a colostomy bag for his mouth."

Zoropa is a masterpiece, yeah!

Let's go, let's go overground...
Get your head out of the mood baby!

Fanstastic! Extraordinary! Magnificent!

I just learned that the second part is underrated by reading your comments

Surely the transfer from part 1 to part 2 is so amazing that you must all love it?

the 1st part after the intro (2:00 - 3:20) sounds like R.E.M.

I hate REM so maybe that's why I don't like it so much, hehe.
