This song could perfectly belong to that category of songs that just make you want to get drunk in a bar, loose control and dance. U2´s The Fly was released in1991 as part of the album Achtung Baby (one of my favorite albums ,by the way).
I´ve read on Wikipedia that Bono described the song’s subject as that of a phone call from someone in Hell who enjoys being there and telling the person on the other end of the line what he has learned. This could very well explain why this song could be categorized as one of that kind of songs I was mentioning above… Anyway, even if I think that U2 has been doing pretty much rubbish over the past 10 years, it is fair to say that their influence and the quality of some of their albums will always make them a classic, and a band I would always recommend to discover or even to re-discover.
I was wondering if Lana del Rey, the Nancy Sinatra of the XXI with a well studied retro style, would make it for a second decent album after her successful debut. But If you have a tendency to melancholy Ultraviolence won´t disappoint you. You might want to cut your veins after listening to the album though…
However, if you were not a fan of her before, then don´t even bother.
