Which U2 song rarity do you find most uplifting?
« on: January 12, 2013, 01:08:03 PM »
During my run today I had my iPod on shuffle. I love to do this because I have most of U2's catalog on there and there is always a song I haven't heard in a while that pops up. Today Three Sunrises came on. I love this song, but I always haven't. Now I find the simplicity of it, the harmonies and the melodies joyful! Sun shine, Sun shine on me! Which rarities bring joy to your day?

Yes, Beautiful Day is uplifting but I was wondering about rarities.

Levitate.

And definitely Always. Perhaps even more uplifting than Beautiful Day, imho

I think Kite is far and away the best song on ATYCLB. I can't believe they never released it as a single, and I can't believe they weren't playing it live when the tour started. Such a great hook.

*"Drowning Man" (because it's ultimately hopeful)
* "Scarlet"
* "Mercy" (original version, which I'd say is full of awe and wonder rather than sadness)

I'd say pretty much the entire October album. Singing and praising in the midst of the storm is a powerful and challenging message.

Of the ones mentioned, definitely Three Sunrises. Pure joy!! I categorize it w/ Unknown Caller and Window in the Skies in the mood it evokes.

Hawkmoon269...which isn't really one of my faves. Every once in a while, though, it can totally jack you up enough to kick the world's ***.
