Pantheon Soundtrack, track 7

“Dancing Barefoot” by U2

In this context, the clever lyrics play the pronouns against the situation of a mixed-gender love triangle.  I imagine Dionysus in the narrator’s position, and dancing barefoot and “strange music” driving him on is a nice allusion to an ancient Bacchic revel.

The guitar solo and the “oh God I feel for you” (in all its ironic literalness) accompanies the three as they roll around in the sheets in complete sexual abandon.
