Haven’t heard this one in a long time, but was reminded of it today. U2, with Bob Dylan, on the song they co-wrote titled Love Rescue Me (from the album Rattle & Hum).
It is funny how despite the obvious intention to record something that sounded “gritty” and “live,” it still sounds like an artifact of the 1980s to me (it was released in
1990 1988). And I guess if it didn’t get all overwrought towards the end, it just wouldn’t be Bono. All the same, it’s a pretty moving piece of balladry, I think, with some very poignant and dead-on lyrics.
Many strangers have I met
On the road to my regret
Many lost who seek to find themselves in me
They ask me to reveal
The very thoughts they would conceal
Love rescue me
