Annotationen

B-Seite zu A Celebration
Die Gitarre in diesem Song setzt eigenwillig verschobene Akzente, der Gesang wirkt unfertig, das Arrangement diletantisch, als wäre dies eine Demo-Aufnahme. Vom Song gibt es noch eine Live-Version. Diese ist zu finden auf der Live Mini-LP Under A Blood Red Sky mit besserem Arrangement. Der Song enthält die tolle Zeile: «When I was three I thought the world revolved around me – I was wrong». Der Song ist typisch für U2. Er hat im Ansatz etwas Missionarisches, bleibt aber poetisch genug als nicht als dumpfe Ideologie abzufallen. Und es heisst: «And when you dance then dance with me, Party Girl».
