I still like U2’s ‘Pop’ — Part 5

Discothèque (song)

Looking for the one
But you know you’re somewhere else instead.
You want to be the song
The song that you hear in your head…

But you take what you can get
‘Cause it’s all that you can find.
Oh you know there’s something more…

-“Discotheque,” U2

Numerous times, Bono has woven the theme of searching in his lyrics. The above lines from “Discotheque” are one example; another example comes from the Pop‘s third track, “Mofo,” which says in part, “Looking for to fill that God-shaped hole.”
