Song For Someone” by U2

Why did you pick this song? What does it do for you?

I first heard this song listening to an interview with Bono talking about writing a song for his wife when they were still teenagers.

I liked Bono’s story and the song, and was surprised to see the poignant, but very different, story that unfolds in the video.

To me the song is hopeful.

If there is a light
You can’t always see
And there is a world
We can’t always be
If there is a dark
Within and without
And there is a light
Don’t let it go out

Anything else you want to say?

The video is a bit long, but it’s really a mini-movie and worth watching.

We put our bodies on a diet. Why not our brains? This is the motivation for our optimism playlist.

Here’s proof that optimism rules. That it’s good for business. And music, of course, improves health and well being
