All is quiet on New Year’s day
A world in white gets underway
I want to be with you, be with you, night and day
Nothing changes on New Year’s day

Quite unbelievable but the good old times when U2 made great music are more than twenty-five years ago. Here they set the sky to fire. Adam Clayton’s bass provides a riff that propels this song forward through thick and thin. The Edge’s mercurial, noisy guitar plus a piano solo rounding off a phantastic live performance. Even Bono’s singing is still bearable, U2’s success has not yet gone to his head.
