U2’s “Wave of Sorrow”

If you look in my iTunes library right now, you won’t find any U2. But, that doesn’t mean that I don’t have the entire back cat­a­logue. The Joshua Tree was my first CD when I was a kid, I even have Under a Blood Red Sky on vinyl.

But, just because I don’t real­ly lis­ten to them any­more, doesn’t mean that I don’t get a lit­tle excit­ed when some­thing new U2 comes out. In advance of the re-release and remas­tered spe­cial edi­tion of The Joshua Tree, the band has released a video on iLike’s Face­book app where Bono dis­cuss­es an unre­leased track includ­ed on the com­pi­la­tion.

U2 – “Wave of Sor­row”

The sen­ti­ment is mov­ing, but man, I can’t believe the guy sings along to his own record­ing… as ever, Bono strad­dles the line between ego­ma­ni­ac and saint.
