The 30 Day Song Challenge – Day 11: A song that reminds you of your mother.

11 03 2011

It was father yesterday, and mother today! This post requires absolutely zero deliberation. When it comes to musical memories of my parents, there is only one song suitable for todays post. Forever a perennial favourite between me and my mum, we always pull funny faces on the ‘woohoo’s’ Try it the next time you hear this song, it’s hard to live it down after.

I Lie... In The Sky...

Whilst we’re talking about mum’s, I really should give her some big extended thanks for exposing me to a range of music as I was growing up. Mum’s tastes are varied, which in turn has had massive impact on me, which has lead to me going out and finding out my own musical pleasures, and discovering music, artists, bands, singers, instruments, genres, albums and more myself. Even now sometimes we sit down with an ipod, spotify and a cupboard or two full of CD’s – testing each other on song intro’s, lyrics and lots more.

So yes, I digress… Today’s song is Elevation by U2.

High, higher than the sun
You shoot me from a gun
I need you to elevate me here
At the corner of your lips
As the orbit of your hips
You elevate my soul

I’ve got no self control
Been living like a mole now
Going down, excavation
I lie in the sky
You make me feel like I can fly
So high

A star
Lit up like a cigar
Strung out like a guitar
Maybe you can educate my mind

Explain all these controls
Can’t sing but I’ve got soul
The goal is elevation

A mole
Digging in a hole
Digging up my soul now
Going down, excavation

I and I in the sky
You make me feel like I can fly
So high

Lift me up from out of these blues
Won’t you tell me something true
I believe in you

A mole
Diggin’ in a hole
Diggin’ up my soul now
Going down, excavation

I lie in the sky
You make me feel like I can fly
So high
