Yeah...I love the songs you mentioned....

I like the way you put it into perspective....

Thank you for that remark!

I'm quite happy if something I mention is of some use.

When I think about the sheer variety of high level songs U2 has consistently created,

I just feel that we are incredibly lucky bastards to be here when it's still very much a vibrant unit.

Who's writing like them these days?

I can't think of many acts even in the same building as those guys.

 I'm gonna go ahead and say it.......I always find deep intimate stuff in U2 songs  that I feel were always meant to be there....And since 2003 when I became a fan (I'm only  27)....Before every album (, Bomb, NLOTH, SOI)  I had Ideas and images in my head related to Experiences I've had...and then I found  all those things In U2's Next Album !!! Like Bono traveled to my head at night or smth...And Edge's riff on CedarWood Road (My fav song on SOI)...Is a sound SO familiar like I always had ir in my head but couldn't express it !!!!!!

Yes.

The great artists can create new value using the same tools as before that speak to feelings that the rest of have never been able to express...or at least not express in the same way.

U2 are masters at the Art of making the personal the universal.

The Hardest thing I'll ever do Is to find My Own tricks"  Of course I can't prove it, it's all there in my head....Do U get it???

I think I do, though I've never had an experience like that...well, I did say to Bill Flanagan that I hoped U2 could do The Wanderer in concert the way they did Satellite Of Love, with footage of Johnny Cash singing it in the studio back in the winter of 1993.

Well, we didn't get that at the I/E shows but it was close!

I don't think that Bill suggested it to them.

I'm sure they'd thought about doing it for years.

Still, it felt great to feel like I was on a similar track.
