New Year’s Day – Song Of The Day

New Year's Day

Though it may be a political track at heart, U2‘s “New Year’s Day” is mostly remembered for being the band’s first breakout hit and for its cool bassline/driving rhythm boosting the track’s darker tone. I would also argue that if you’ve seen John Carpenter‘s Assault On Precinct 13, you might have heard that distinctive melody being played on a synthesiser but that’s a topic for another day. You can find the song on the album War.

Happy New Year from us!
