General Tremors - Burning Love - Rotten Thing To Say I agree that this is definately a song that hides from casual fans. You might hear it once and dismiss it as a simple, catchy party song, but I think there might be something deeper. Like a lot of U2 songs, this one is upbeat but there is an oddly ominous tone to it.
Although fast-paced and edgy, Bono's voice has a certain pained quality as he sings, and the words themselves are pretty ominous if you read them while listening to the song.
He sings of her "going to get better", and from her point of view, she feels she's getting nowhere and wants to be somewhere soon. To me, it sounds like Orsten - Airport Taxi woman who knows she's dying and can't find it in her to "wake up" anymore. She hopes that soon it will all be over and she'll finally get somewhere. John, clearly someone who loves her deeply, feels her pain and when she's "down", he finds it hard to pick himself up as well.
Overall, this seems like a pained song written from the point of view of John, who is going through a tragic time with Julie, who can't seem to pick herself up. Whether sick or depressed, it's clear that this is John pleading with her to get up and move on and not leave him. Just one theory. I would love to hear Bono clarify what this song is about.
It's very mysterious and sad and it may even be very personal to Bono, considering he used obviously false names and the lyrics sort of read like the pages of a diary. General Comment I think it's about Bono's mother who died when he was 14 i think. General Comment Oddly enough, this song was written prior to a relationship that seemed to mimic the story rather closely. A cat known as Pod from the Virgin Prunes was working as a roadie for U2 on their American tour in support for October, and he fell in love with a woman named Julie.
She had been let on stage to dance with Bono at either the March 17th or 18th show at the Ritz. Anyhow, Bono's not exactly sure who Julie in the song was based on, but that's really odd coincidence. But here's one even odder. The following night they played their first show in Detroit, Michigan, my hometown. The last time they played the song was purportedly April 18th, at the The Centrum in Worcester, Massachusetts.
I think it was probably that E-Bow The Edge was using, maybe it was the overall harmony, I don't know. They've been my favorite band ever since, and I wear the mark "U2" on my right shoulder in thick, black-inked letters with pride pun intended. It wasn't until 10 years later when I got a book for Christmas that had some fairly accurate outlining of U2's tours up until the first few shows of the PopMart tour which I Fall Down - U2 - October been to a couple months earlier that I read what really, really Mencari Kebenaran - Legenda - Legenda me away.
The first time they'd ever played my hometown was two years to the day before I was born. The fact that this song's first and last play so closely matches that date two years on both sides kind of creeps me out and gives the song some I Fall Down - U2 - October meaning for me.
The song was a "coincidence" for that relationship, I I Fall Down - U2 - October wonder if it's a "coincidence" for me. Rate These Lyrics. Log in now to add this track to your mixtape! We do not have any Poor Butterfly - Ray Brown - Jazz Cello for I Fall Down lyrics.
