Johnny take a walk, With your sister the moon, Let her pale light in, To fill up your room
You’ve been living underground, Eating from a can, You’ve been running away, From what you don’t understand
Answer: Mysterious Ways – U2
It is the eighth track from their 1991 album Achtung Baby and was released as the album’s second single on 25 November 1991. Actung Baby is definitely one of U2’s more successful albums (and the cover has a nude photo of Adam Clayton … so there’s that.)
Mysterious Ways reached the top ten of the singles charts in several countries, including the band’s native Ireland, where it went to number one. In the United States, the song topped the Modern Rock Tracks and Album Rock Tracks charts and peaked at number nine on the Billboard Hot 100.
You may remember the video had a belly dancing theme, which included distorted shots of Bono dancing, and other mystical images. It was filmed in Morocco. The belly dancer was portrayed by Morleigh Steinberg aka the Edge’s wife. They married in 2002 and have a son and a daughter. She and the Edge became very close when she was a dancer during the band’s Zoo TV Tour.
Actung Baby is such a great album I am torn as to which song is my favorite track. I love The Fly and Who’s Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses, probably one of those.
