I remember it so well. I watched it the whole day together with my sister as a teenager. Mu mum had made my favourite dish, but when Bad started I forgot to eat. It was so good. I have watched it on yoo toobe several times now and it still holds up, it's a great clip.

goshrx - did it get that much coverage out your way? I remember talking about the US Festival happening at the time with a couple other fans, but none of us had seen it and we were already well aware of the band. Maybe it was different on the left coast? Live Aid though was about the best parallel you can get to the iTunes release - all it took was a TV to get a great introduction to the band.

I remember being FURIOUS that I couldn't be at WEMBLEY after just having seen the boys three times in Worcester Mass, twice in Hartford three times in New Jersey and once at Madison Square Garden in the preceding weeks. It was jubilant, yet somewhat sad knowing the boys that had been "ours" were now going to be THEIRS......... It was never as intimate since. Songs of INNOCENCE INDEED. SONGS OF EXPERIENCE!!!!!!!!!!!?!!
