E is for Electrical Storm

My favorite U2 song that begins with E is Electrical Storm. I have to admit the entire reason it is one of my favorites is because of the video. Every time I listen to Electrical Storm, the video plays in my head. And the video is all about Larry. Larry wet, Larry in the tub, Larry in the ocean, Larry kissing. Sigh! Electrical Storm is a great song that is made even better when the images of its video play in my head when I listen to it.

The sea it swells like a sore head and the night it is aching
Two lovers lie with no sheets on their bed
And the day it is breaking
On rainy days we’d go swimming out
On rainy days swimming in the sound
On rainy days we’d go swimming out
You’re in my mind all of the time
I know that’s not enough
If the sky can crack there must be someway back
For love and only love
Electrical Storm
Electrical Storm
Baby don’t cry
Car alarm won’t let you back to sleep
You’re kept awake dreaming someone elses dream
Coffee is cold but it’ll get you through
Compromise that’s nothing new to you.
Let’s see colours that have never been seen
Let’s go places no one else has been
You’re in my mind all of the time
I know that’s not enough
Well if the sky can crack there must be someway back
To love and only love
Electrical storm x 3
Baby don’t cry
It’s hot as hell, honey in this room
Sure hope the weather will break soon
The air is heavy, heavy as a truck
We need the rain to wash away our bad luck
Well if the sky can crack there must be some way back
To love and only love
Electrical storm
Baby don’t cry

  3. Elecrical Storm a good song with breathtaking video,but my favorite E song from U2 still is Even Better Than The Real Thing!!!!

  4. Being a Larry fan, I totally get why Electrical Storm is your number 1 E. I have a soft spot for the band’s cover of “Everlasting Love.”
