Beautiful Day – U2

I have very mixed feelings about U2. I used to be a huge fan. But then every radio station I listened to decided that a U2 song an hour was a good idea. And I just got sick to death of most of their song.

But when this song came out there was something about it that captured my ear. I think because the emotion in it seems so authentic. It is joyful despite itself. The lyrics and sound are in conflict but sometimes that is how happiness is. We are happy despite the situation. We are enjoying a sunny, blue sky day despite being disappointed or sad. And the song is saying don’t let the beautiful day go just because you have other things going on.

It was a beautiful day
Don’t let it get away
Beautiful day
