Though the track’s title is different, this time inspiration comes from a film.
That’s rare indeed, but U2 are somehow my source of inspiration (together with other irish sounds and rockblues), Daniel Lanois and Wenders too.
About this film, it was the year 2000. Since then, things have quickly changed, our way of life more and more conditioned by technology and public sharing, but I often think that it’s just a (conditioned) illusion.
This intro scene represents somehow my long adolescence … till 2000, I’d have been dead, instead it was the beginning of a new era (if I like it or not).
I played with my own memory about the film, or better: with my feelings about the film, watching the scene just yesterday, when I tried listening to my music with it.
