This song should be on every single U2 album ever made! Well, okay, maybe not. But, it is an incredible song...great lyric, and that BOOM BOOM...makes my knees weak!

It is truly a killer...I think it's one of their sexiest songs, after Do You Feel Loved and Velvet Dress.

So, I worked out to R&H this morning. I don't choose R&H for workouts often, mainly because I can never get past Hawkmoon...I play it 4 or 5 times...can't get enough.

This morning, while working out, I saw THREE shooting stars in the desert sky. The southwestern sky and Hawkmoon...doesn't get any better than this.

I listened to Hawkmoon five or six times this morning in the car, and I really feel like Bono could still pull this off live. Maybe tone down the screaming at the end.
I would love to hear it live (I'm not actually sure I would live through it)

so many good lyric

like coming home and you don't know where you've been

like the muzzle of a gun

but the best: like faith needs a doubt

I can relate to all of these in a big way...
