There are certain songs, no matter how many times you hear them, that still cause goosebumps to erupt on your skin or make the hair on the back of your neck stand on end.
Unforgettable Fire is one of those tracks. I hear the opening bars and then I wait for Bono's raspy voice and I'm transported to another time and place. And I love the lyrics, too, nowhere near as contrived or as slogan-rich as the U2 of late.
The wheels fly and the colors spin
Red wine that punctures the skin
Face to face
In a dry and waterless place
And just check out how young everyone looks in this video (Bono was just 24)!
