I'm at a place called vertigo...

Wow, I was one of the 37,000 people who downloaded the new U2 single Vertigo from iTunes last week.

Music is strange - you'd think that the upbeat pop single genre would have run out of ideas by now, but here's U2 with another killer song. There's nothing amazingly innovative about it, but it just lends itself to repeat playings galore. I just have to listen to the chunky guitar intro and Bono's count out of 11, 12, 13, 14 in Spanish to get the spine tingle. And I don't think I can ever get tired of the Edge's guitar work. Dang, I might have to really work on the POD to get that tone down ;)

And how many #1 pop songs reference the temptation of Jesus?

I can hardly wait for the new album.


once doce trece catorce
(Turn it up loud, captain!)

Lights go down
It's dark
The jungle is your head
Can't rule your heart
I'm feeling so much stronger
Than I thought
Your eyes are wide
And though your soul
It can't be bought
Your mind can wander

Hello, Hello (Hola!)
I'm at a place called vertigo (Donde está?)
It's everything I wish I didn't know
Except you give me something
I can feel, feel

The night is full of holes
As bullets rip the sky
Of ink with gold
They twinkle as the boys
Play rock and roll
They know that they can't dance
At least they know

I can stand the beat
I'm asking for the check
The girl with crimson nails
Has Jesus 'round her neck
Swinging to the music
Swinging to the music

Hello, Hello (Hola!)
I'm at a place called Vertigo (Donde está?)
It's everything I wish I didn't know
But you give me something
I can feel, feel

(Check it)
(Shots fall)
(She'll make it)

All this, all this can be yours
All of this, all of this can be yours
All this, all of this can be yours
Just give me what I want
And no one gets hurt

Hello, Hello (Hola!)
We're at a place called Vertigo (Donde está?)
Lights go down and all I know
Is that you give me something
I can feel your love teaching me how
Your love is teaching me how
How to kneel, kneel
