U2: Pride (In the Name of Love)

I was just a young’n when U2 released this.  

Every year I get older, it becomes more & more poignant.

A MLK non-traditional tribute. Been hearing it a lot today.

Pride
U2
One man come in the name of love
One man come and go
One man come he to justify
One man to overthrow


In the name of love
What more in the name of love
In the name of love
What more in the name of love


One man caught on a barbed wire fence
One man he resist
One man washed up on an empty beach
One man betrayed with a kiss


In the name of love
What more in the name of love
In the name of love
What more in the name of love


Early morning, April four
Shot rings out in the Memphis sky
Free at last, they took your life
They could not take your pride


In the name of love
What more in the name of love
In the name of love
What more in the name of love
In the name of love
What more in the name of love
In the name of love
What more in the name of love

I love U2. Can't believe it's the 50 year anniversary of the murder of Dr. King. A great man. One of my heroes.

Wow...thank you Sidsmom...definitely a somber throwback. I have always loved that song and who it paid tribute to.
