Believe it or not, I have a process I follow for these #WaltzWednesdays posts. I am working from a number of lists I have found of rock & pop songs in triple metre. I vet it for bands that I like or that intrigue me somehow. U2 is one such band. Then I find a YouTube or Vimeo video of the song.

I pre-listen to the song if it's unfamiliar to check on a few things. One, that it really IS in triple metre. I have found a few that were on my lists but on listening, clearly counted out to 2/2 or 4/4. I also need to spend some time thinking about the lyrics, and the message. It may tie into current events or issues I have been thinking about.

Not this time. Today I am breaking all my rules. This song by U2 was in my list, and it came up in the random selection of "next #WaltzWednesdays tune to blog." And I decided to leave it to the fates. Is there any kind of important message here? No idea. If the song even really a waltz? Not a clue.

I will listen to this tomorrow. Meanwhile, enjoy the surprises (if any).
