Title: love for "Dirty Day" anyone else?
Post by: U2boy14 on March 15, 2017, 09:37:32 PM
These days, days, days run away like horses over the hill

Who doesn't love this song?

One of the highlights off "Zooropa," in my Top 4 U2 albums (AB, UF, Boy, Zooropa and oh yeah JT)

It's amazing. They need to bring it back into the live set again.

Absolutely love "Dirty Day". It's Bono at his most venomous, driving with the bitterness of victim hood in the front seat. Plus Adam's bass line is killer. My favorite lyrics on the album:
Get it right / there's no blood thicker than ink / hear what I say / nothing's as simple as you think / wake up, somethings you can't get around / I'm in you / more so when they put me in the ground

This is more similar in terms of the bassline and parts of the chorus https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VcvNc3gDu4Q&index=8&list=PLcCg1Fxs9kEPglC2dGvywgUS8VlpwSJrE

I love this track, but in general I'm a big fan of Zooropa.  I feel like it needs a remastering though, as some parts in the mix sound more muted than others.  The Junk Day Mix is also killer.   Anyway, would love to hear it live someday.

All four members are kicking ass on this track but Adam is at another level.

Oh I love this subtle, hypnotic rock tune! It took me a long time to fully appreciate it's genius but I got there eventually...it's Bono at his best lyrically and the masterful band arrangement cranks up the tension to boiling point before it explodes into that epic outro. And that single note (guitar/synth?) that hovers in the background for the majority of the song is mesmerising, I seriously think that might well be my favourite thing about the song! It's a beautiful, dirty day :D

The only thing better than Dirty Day is Dirty Day live in Australia.
