14 Days Of Achtung Baby: The Fly

Hello lovelies! I didn't manage to get up a post yesterday, so you'll get two for the price of one today!

The Fly

"we shine like a burning star, we're falling from the sky tonight"

The Fly, with its unmistakeable guitar and distorded voice. This song has some of the best and most poetical of U2's lyrics, hidden behind an electronic, rocking sound. There really isn't much to say other than: listen to it.

I took my inspiration for this not only from the song, but also Bono's alter ego the Fly. "Every artist is a cannibal, every poet is a thief, all kill their inspiration and sing about their grief" is probably the most significant line in the whole song for me, so that did influence me a lot.
