Happiness Is A Warm Gun

Happiness Is A Warm Gun Music and lyrics by John Lennon and Paul McCartney Transcribed by Brandon Leniart This is from the "Last Night On Earth" single, and it's a must for anyone who saw the Popmart Tour. Hearing "Pop Muzik" on that CD instantly takes me back to the opening minutes of the show with Bono in his boxer robe, punching at the air. It even has a bit of "Mofo" at the end, and some crowd noise at the beginning. "Happines Is A Warm Gun" isn't too shabby either, and once again U2 proves that they can do a cover version of any song and make it their own.
