Spiritual Songs
« on: March 01, 2018, 10:17:34 AM »
I'm doing research for a blog I started.  What is your favorite U2 Spiritual Song or at least line or verse from a song?

Some of mine include:

Songs: Yahweh, I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For, Walk On, Magnificent, of course 40

See the bird with the leaf in her mouth, after the flood all the colours came out
Some pray for others steal, blessings not just for the ones who kneel, luckily.
If I had anything at all, I'd give it to you.

Wake up Dead Man, 40

There are spiritual lyrics in MOFO as well:
Lookin' for to fill that God-shaped hole.... Lookin' for the baby Jesus under the trash

Song for Someone

And Im a long way
From your hill of Calvary
And Im a long way
From where I was, where I need to be

That brings tears to my eyes, acknowledged what Jesus did for us (the Hill of Cavalry), saying I have repented and been born again (I am along way from where I was) but admitting I'm not perfect and have along way to go to be Christ like (where I need to be). It reminds me well of me

To be honest, this is one of my favorite aspects of U2, so it is hard to narrow it down to one. Still, I think I would have to go with "Your Blue Room."I know it can go both ways, sexual and spiritual, but I find the theme of surrender powerful in this one, "your instructions, whatever their directions."

With a Shout - I want to go the foot of Mt Zion, to the foot of he who made me see.  To the side of a hill, blood was spilled, we were filled with a love.   This is my favorite of them all but it has as much to do with Bonos exceptional delivery as it does with the concept.
   
Contrary to what it may seem, DYFL speaks loudly to me about faith, or at least it did then.   Similar to Magnificent in my opinion, just much less obvious in its proclamation.

I didn't see Acrobat mentioned yet:

Yeah I'd break bread and wine
If there was a church I could receive in
Cause I need it now
To take this cup
To fill it up
To drink it slow
I can't let you go

There's so many. Almost all are directly spritual. I did like the Hill of Calvary reference in SFS too. Also, Is that all You want from me? (The drums slay me in that song - and is something dropped on the floor at the end when you can hear the feedback? I love that part, like they just went bananas on the song and when it was over everything kind of collapsed from the intensity.)
