  1. u2 song of the day

  2. This SOE is shaping up to be a gem

    The last song of their's I liked was Speed of Sound, and that was about 12 years ago. Even then I probably only liked it because it sounded U2-ish. Where The Streets Have No Name is imo U2's most epic song (that doesn't mean it's their best song, just the most epic) and they have very wisely never tried to top it. Coldplay seems to want every song to be Streets. And then Streets on steroids.
  3. Rattle & Hum 30th Anniversary

    I put R&H equal with TJT and Achtung Baby. Took me a few years to warm to "Love Rescue Me", but otherwise there isn't a single dud in the studio songs. "All I Want Is You" was the song that started my interest in them. The backlash to the movie and the album all happened before I became a fan so I was ignorant to it and didn't think they deserved it. But if it hadn't copped it, U2 wouldn't have been pushed into trying something new, no Achtung Baby, and they probably wouldn't still be around today.

    1987 to 1997 is their golden era imo.
  5. This SOE is shaping up to be a gem

    In a previous thread I said that I thought NLOTH felt like a companion piece to Pop: Boots/Discotheque, Cedars/Wake Up Dead Man, Stand Up Comedy/Holy Joe I reckon TUF, especially the B-sides, hints at an early Achtung Baby.
  6. Achtung Baby: why?

    Didn't they have to pay a whopping fine back in the day for Send In The Clowns?
  7. Bono, I will never forgive you....

    I was at the front at 360 and Adam didn't pull me up on stage and hand me his bass so I could rip into God Part II in front of 60,000 people. What a jerk.
  8. Dolores O'Riordan

    Sad news to hear, just heard on the radio. If there was an Ahk-toong Bay-bi Covered-style cover album of Pop, I always thought The Cranberries should have done Please. (Assuming they got along with U2)
  9. u2 song of the day

    Cheers. Rattle and Hum is a great album, I put it equal with The Joshua Tree and Achtung Baby. I became a fan in the early '90s and was oblivious to the backlash it copped and at the time couldn't understand why some didn't like it.
  10. u2 song of the day

    I was talking to a mate about this last night. He used to be a fan but has gone off them in the last few years. He went to some Lovetown shows back in the day, I was telling him last night how they've only played Hawkmoon about 7 times and he was at one of the shows to hear it and how jealous I am.
  11. Music is “girly” - interview with Bono

    And The Beatles weren't?
  12. U2 Don't Promote their Best Songs?

    The first time I heard him say it was on an Oprah interview back around 2002. I'm guessing it dates back even further to TJT. Yeah, tired of it too.

    Orchestra performing the synth riff from Mofo!
  14. Beautiful Day/GOOYOW

    Good thing: Beautiful Day can be dropped from an entire tour for a new song. Bad thing: A new song that sounds pretty much exactly like Beautiful Day.
