Saturday Night Music

A somewhat obscure song from one of my fave bands of all time:



Brian Eno and Daniel Lanois produced this I believe, and their influence shows.

U2 Heartland

See the sun rise over her skin
Don't change it
See the sun rise over her skin
Dawn changes everything
Everything
And the delta sun
Burns bright and violet
Mississippi and the cotton wool heat
66 a highway speaks
Of deserts dry
Of cool green valleys
Gold and silver veins
Of the shining cities

In this heartland
In this heartland soil
In this heartland
Heaven knows this is a heartland
Heartland, heartland

See the sun rise over her skin
She feels like water in my hand
Freeway like a river cuts through this land
Into the side of love
Like a burning spear
And the poison rain
Brings a flood of fear
Through the ghost-ranch hills
Death valley waters
In the towers of steel
Belief goes on and on

In this heartland
In this heartland soil
In this heartland
Heaven knows this is a heartland
Heartland
Heaven knows this is a heartland
Heartland, heartland
Heartland
Heaven's day here in the heartland

Ok we got the Oils and U2, when do we see the posts on Gabriel and Live. It's only a matter of time right?

You know me well, my friend. As you once said, "I read you like a cheap dime novel!"

I figure this will be a regular Saturday night thing, putting up my music jones every Saturday night, and be the ahem serious blogger the rest of the week.
