I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For – U2 | A Smash Hit That Still Slays | Track Of The Day

I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For - U2 | Official Single Artwork 1987

Let’s set the scene. You’re at a party, it’s getting late and everyone is more than tipsy. People are starting to get ready to leave, but then you hear it. The unmistakable sound of a tambourine perfectly accompanied by a dreamy riff that will stand the test of time. All thoughts of going home to your cat are gone as everyone gathers together, probably swaying (not because of the music), to sing/wail their hearts out.

If my scene-setting skills have failed, then the song I’m talking about is one of U2‘s finest offerings, ‘I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For’. Say what you will about the band, but they were pretty decent back in the day (before they decided to plonk a sub-par album on everyone’s Apple devices for no apparent reason…).

On this day in 1987,  this classic sat proudly at the top of the US charts, sitting there for two weeks. A US chart-topper might seem a bit tenuous for our Track Of The Day, but honestly, do you need an excuse to listen to this song?

So press play, turn your volume up, and have a sing*.

*Note: some people might have to warn their neighbours that they are singing, not illegally keeping a humpback whale as a pet.
