Late Night Listening: Installment VII

Tonight's featured selection doesn't have a deep connection to my life as some of the other posts in this category. The song is U2's "Unforgettable Fire".

I had been thinking about using this song for weeks, but it always seemed like I had a more relevant choice. The chorus of this song is sort of a musical mantra, for I find the instrumentation and rhythm to be the sound of quiet, and determined resolve. I sometimes find myself hearing it played in my head during times of somber thoughts or when I'm walking for an extended period of time.

When I watched this video clip, two things went through my head... One is that Bono sure looks young, but that was almost 23 years ago. The other thing is that the video has a lot of nocturnal urban skylines, a frequent sight for me on my travels for interviews.
