Random Play: U2

by Simon

Quite possibly my favourite U2 track, Salome was a b-side from their Achtung Baby sessions. I’ve heard the various demos of the track and it was quite different, sounding more like the noisy Krautrock of Zoo Station than the glam rock of the finished track. The major change was the addition of a chorus, which when it kicks in just makes me go all peculiar. Bono’s doing his best Elvis impression and the band sound like prime era Adam & The Ants, especially on that chorus.

Love it.
