Zooropa
by U2

  • (What do you want?)
    (What do you want?)

    Zooropa vorsprung durch technik
    Zooropa be all that you can be
    Be a winner
    Eat to get slimmer

    Zooropa bluer kind of white
    Zooropa it could be yours tonight
    We're mild and green
    And squeaky clean

    (What do you want?)
    (What do you want?)
    (What do you want?)
    (What do you want?)

    Zooropa better by design
    Zooropa fly the friendly skies
    Through appliance of science
    We've got that ring of confidence

    And I have no compass
    And I have no map
    And I have no reasons
    No reasons to get back

    And I have no religion
    And I don't know what's what
    And I don't know the limit
    The limit of what we've got

    Don't worry baby, it'll be alright
    You got the right shoes
    To get you through the night
    It's cold outside, but brightly lit
    Skip the subway
    Let's go to the overground
    Get your head out of the mud baby
    Put flowers in the mud baby
    Overground

    No particular place names
    No particular song
    I've been hiding
    What am I hiding from

    Don't worry baby, it's gonna be alright
    Uncertainty can be a guiding light
    I hear voices, ridiculous voices
    Out in the slipstream
    Let's go, let's go overground
    Take your head out of the mud baby

    She's gonna dream up
    The world she wants to live in
    She's gonna dream out loud
    She's gonna dream out loud
    Dream out loud Writer/s: ADAM CLAYTON, DAVE EVANS, LARRY MULLEN, PAUL HEWSON

  • Mike from Buffalo, NdThe song "Somedays are Better Than Others" from this cd sadly isn't on SF. I have always enjoyed the wonderfully bizarre distorted guitar solo on that song. Was it really the Edge playing? So unlike his usual style, though even by then, he had begun using other tricks than the echo/delay signature sound that served the band well on it's first few albums. Anyway, "Zooropa" is a close second for me on this album.
  • Rick from Columbus, GaThis is the best rock song about outer space zoos ever! It totally rolls.
  • Lily from Godrics Hallow, Englandi love this song Vorsprung durch technik, ny new favorite phrase! LOL
  • Chadd Bryant from Prague, Ok"Let's skip the subway.. let's go to the overground... Get your head out of the mud baby!!"
    U2 rocks, no matter what genre music they play...
  • Grayson from Cleveland, OhLemon is probably the worst song on Zooropa
  • Cody from New York, Nyyou people are insane... this song is so much better than Lemon
  • Jeremy from Hopedale, MaZooropa is an ok song but Lemon is much better
  • Brian from Meriden, CtI thought, like Rich, that Lemon was a great song. But it took me a while to decide if I even liked the album at all and I have always been a huge U2 fan. I have never been into the Euro/techno thing and was in love with earlier albums so different from this period. But like the elite bands such as the Beatles U2 is not going to do the same thing for long. A continual evolution. Like our own. I came to like Zooropa but it's at the bottom of my U2 list. But that's relative. A great band is a great band. And it showed here. But that Audi phrase and the whole title-track...how about Trip Through Your Wires instead?
  • Rich from Commack, NyVorsprung Durch Technik! I love this song- #1 (Tied with Lemon) on my favorites list! I'd have to give this song a 9.9 out of 10. Why not 10? It should have been a tad bit faster.
