Sexiest U2 Lyrics
« on: December 23, 2016, 02:42:11 PM »
This thread already existed, but it seemed to die out back in June so it was recommended that I resurrect it myself.

What are some of the sexiest U2 lyrics that you know of? They don't even have to be outright about sex, they could just sound sexy. Here are some of my favorites.

"Oh, no don't be shy. You don't have to go blind." -Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me

"We'll slide down the surface of things." -Even Better Than the Real Thing

"I've got a submarine, you've got gasoline." -Get on Your Boots

"The corner of your lips, is the orbit of your hips." -Elevation

"You've been all over, and it's been all over you." -Beautiful Day

'It's a private show, no one else got to know' - and a lot more of If You Wear That Velvet Dress

'She put a toung in my ear, [screaming]' -No Line On The Horizon

I don't want to talk about this  :-X

"On rainy days we'd go swimmin' out, on rainy days swimmin' in the sound."  I picture some night swimming sans garments, natch. I think "Electrical Storm" overall is one of their sexiest songs.

Well, there is the entirety of DYFL.

Achtung Baby has many sexual themes tied to it. There's a lot of upfront/obvious lyrics such as this one from UTEOTW: "Surrounding me, going down on me...". Acrobat and EBTTRT also have sexual lyrics. Zooropa continued with this in Babyface, which obviously talks about somebody's addiction with pornography. For more romantic lyrics, songs like LIB and Velvet Dress fit that bill.

There's also that whole salt water kisses lyric (less obvious unless you've heard that term before).

I'm surprised DYFL wasn't mentioned sooner in this thread.

Let's face it, you can just post all of Velvet Dress and close the thread.

"If you want to kiss the sky, better learn how to kneel. On your knees, boy!"

Mysterious Ways, ah what a groove.  One of my favorite U2 tracks from an album filled with them.

So Cruel. All of it. It is the most sexually explicit song Yer Man has ever written, IMO. The whole song, music included, is erotic in the grittiest way possible.

My take on that particular line is more romantic, ie salt water kisses = her tears. Especially since I believe it goes on with "who's gonna take the place of me?"

"Surrounding me, going down on me...". Again, with the previous lines being "In my dreams I was drowning my sorrows but my sorrows they learned to swim" I associate it with alcohol binging. You know...drowning your sorrows = drinking to forget.

But to stay on topic. EBTTRT of course.
