Bono - u2 - 'With or Without You'


Last summer I reminisced an all people favorite musical piece – 'summertime' by Gershwin. It is such a perfect song for the season. It will forever be in any top ten list of summer songs.

This song I am now thinking of is an all season, all generation favorite.  (It came more to my mind, since I saw Bono performing (a totally different song) for this year's Grammy award ceremony. Bono and Edge, I never saw them in a live performance. So it is a big treat. )

This hit song "With or Without You", is from the 1987 album "Joshua Tree."  The lyric itself is a jewel. Even without listening to Bono's singing, the words haunt you. This is one song which can go easily on top of the list of religious songs. It equally can go on top of list of Love songs.

I don't think the song is intentionally written with a dual purpose. To mix up religion, and romantic love at the same time. No, I don't think so. The emotions are totally independent. When you hear one you don't hear the other.

The best way I like to hear this song is in that one video, when Bono is young, wearing a sleeveless leather jacket and when he is so expressive in his body and voice. The accompaniment is just great.


The lyric begins:


"See the stone set in your eyes

See the thorn twist in your side

I wait for you.

Sleight of hand and twist of fate

On a bed of nails she makes me wait

And I wait, without you

With or without you

With or without you…"


The song is also sung beautifully by April Meservy, and the Canadian pair figure skated to it in this year's Winter Olympics, in PyeongChang, South Korea. I loved watching the event more because of the song.

Happy Listening! Have a good weekend, friends!
