With Hurricane Harvey continuing to pummel parts of Texas, it's time for #7 in my Favorite "Weather" Songs series, which is basically songs with some form of weather in the title. The 7th spot belongs to "Electrical Storm" by U2. Produced by electronica legend William Orbit, "Electrical Storm" was specially recorded for U2's 2002 compilation album, The Best of 1990-2000. Despite being an international hit, it was seven years before the band performed the song live, in Barcelona, as part of their 360° tour. And "Electrical Storm" was definitely an international hit. While it stalled at #77 on the Billboard Hot 100, it reached Top 5 status in 14 other countries, including #1 in Italy, Portugal, and Spain. I've attached the official video, which stars drummer Larry Mullen Jr. and actress Samantha Morton. Enjoy! (Info verified by Wikipedia)

There are three different versions of this. I like this William Orbit mix, personally.

New technologies and elctronics influence the evolution of music . I don ' t think it would have been possible to do such a video clip few decades in the past . I really loved the music.

I'm glad you liked it. Technology definitely keeps music moving forward, for the most part.

U2! Thumbs up! This is one of their more unusual efforts where not so typical U2 sound.

I know. The Edge isn't running his guitar through an effects pedal like usual.

Not many share U2 on here, think JJ might have been the other I have seen. Cool stuff.

It probably was him. I envy his vinyl collection.
