Would have been nice if the U2 store had managed to ship and ensure the delivery of the vinyl on the day of release.

All my other recent pre-ordered vinyls have been shipped and delivered on release day - often from much smaller bands, but sadly I am not surprised the U2 store failed (yet again)

This is a long-standing problem with Live Nation (U2's management and responsible for the shop/distribution). I stopped ordering from them after they were late delivering the October re-release. My husband ordered Springsteen's Legendary '79 No Nukes Concerts, also released today, also from the Springsteen shop (also run by Live Nation) and it wasn't delivered either.

It's not worth the headache and I'd rather give my money to my beloved local record store (they pre-ordered it for me, I'll pick it up when I go for Record Store Day next week).

Now I want to get out the lyrics and count how many times he said it.

Funny.  Doesn't he say how many times they've used baby, in the interview?  I thought he did.

I’m not sure I’ve ever heard the stuff about “baby” before

Both your mention and his bringing up baby made me laugh.  I cannot remember which one-saw an interview where Bono is asked what his wife calls him and he gets his cocky Bono smile and says, "Oh, she calle me baby."  It was funny and endearing.

I think he said 31, but there’s more than that in Ultraviolet alone.
