Monday’s Theme Music

Rattle and Hum is an album I favor listening to, although it’s second to The Joshua Tree among my U2 album’s of choice. I found myself streaming and humming “Desire” today, so I thought I’d spilled it out to others. The song’s lyrics touches on how greed and love can become entangled, and reminds me of how often the desire to be wanted confuses the need to be love and be loved. It’s a fever, an addiction, a promise, and a reward.

Sometimes, it’s just a damn hope.

  1. That’s about as insightful as one can get, Mike. Love is the core of all human life, and you’ve spelled out how it invariably becomes distorted. “…and reminds me of how often the desire to be wanted confuses the need to love and be loved.” Damn! How many times I’ve played that game.
