  2. I really wish publications like Slicing Up Eyeballs and others could simply use words like SPOILER ALERT in their headlines about U2 rather than giving away surprises about their long-awaited show. I understand wanting to hook readers but it’s grating to already know a huge surprise about the show. I expect a thank you card from them for not being petty to the point of not offering a spoiler alert that I won’t read their work anymore in retaliation. I’ll still read it. Very bitterly.
  3. I have an easier time picking the songs I need to hear in Omaha next month... Lights of Home Summer of Love Red Flag Day The Blackout The Showman Love Is All We Have Left Get Out of Your Own Way
  4. The only thing I want in the U2.com shop is Passengers - Original Soundtracks Volume 1 plus b-sides The Million Dollar Hotel soundtrack All U2 b-sides, remixes, guest appearances, solo work, duets, fruitlegs, concert recordings, and video remixes, such as for The Fly and Numb. Every officially-released studio track, basically.
  5. I'm sorry. I have a bad habit of joining in pages and not bothering to read what has been said up until now. I see that I am not alone in my thinking on this. Cheers.
  6. I haven't followed this thread, but I wanted to add my two cents about SoE... I messed with the track order a bit. * Love Is All We Have Left Lights of Home (St. Peter's String Version) You're the Best Thing About Me Get Out of Your Own Way American Soul The Blackout Summer of Love * Red Flag Day The Showman (Little More Better) Book of Your Heart The Little Things That Give You Away Landlady Love Is Bigger Than Anything In Its Way 13 (There Is A Light) Moving up The Blackout feels much better to me. Similarly, the string version of Lights of Home feels great following on the heels of Love Is All We Have Left. Is it just me or is U2 under the influence of Radiohead on Book of Your Heart? A great tune...and a fantastic album. I look forward to seeing the show in Omaha on the 19th of May, 2018. The blending of the personal and political is masterful, taking on mortality, love, the rise of the extreme right wing in the west, the plight of Syrian refugees, and the need to remain hopeful despite the world going mad around you. I have heard that this may be their last album. As much as I hope this isn't the case, I feel like this is U2 going out on top.
  7. Summer of Love has been the brightest gem on the album for me. I don't know if this song is single material, but it is a glorious piece of work.
  8. I completely agree on the NLotH singles. I tend to change the order of songs on most of their albums as well. Magnificent should've been the first single. I can hear DJs having to say, "U2 is back and their new single is Magnificent..." How'd they miss that opportunity??? In the case of their new album, Your The Best Thing About Me was a great choice for first single. After that, it's the question of a great song vs. a great single. Not every song can be both. Personally, I'd go for Lights of Home, Red Flag Day, and Summer of Love. The Blackout could've been a single, too. Summer of Love is a bit understated when you think of what's on radio. Then again, consider what With Or Without You must've seemed like in the context of spring 1987! That was a game changer. I know a few Lady Gaga fans who love the fact that she is singing on Summer of Love. It could be a dark single. Some pop needs to go there though.
  9. Boy is a top shelf album from front to back. There's always a gimmick with these tours, like a giant space ship-like stage setup for 360, for instance. Boy would bring loads of people out to see them. Achtung Baby would as well. The space/baby face symbol replacing the Joshua tree is a brilliant idea! U2 need to return to Oz and perhaps Japan as well...South America seems to eat up their shows. I'm in Lincoln, Nebraska, so I usually just have to drive a few hours to see them...or catch the train. It'll be Tulsa for me next, most likely. I saw Zoo TV twice. I was sixteen at the time. In hindsight, it's completely insane that that show ever happened at all. Completely mental.
  10. I'm guessing U2 could play Boy in its entirety, take a twenty minute break, then play Achtung Baby in its entirety. After that, perhaps an encore, but those two albums already total 23 tunes. That's a lot of show. I guess I'm just itching for the media madness to return. Let's go back to Trabantland...
  11. I don't know if this forum would be a good place in which to begin a petition, but I welcome better ideas of how to go about it... I keep imagining the Innocence/Experience idea being taken to its next logical step, which is a tour celebrating Boy and Achtung Baby. I don't think this is too far fetched of an idea. As magical tours in U2's history go, this would be an absolute smash. Please comment as to whether you would like to see this pair of albums on tour.
  12. Is it just me, or is the REAL Innocence + Experience moment still ahead of us? Think about this for a second...2020/2021...U2 tour Boy AND Achtung Baby. You know I'm right, people... we should start a petition or something...
  13. JCF, thank you very much for your kind words! Most appreciated! Grande 3:16, your remark about the chorus of Zoo Station sounding like "gestation" made me smile. Considering that the song is partly about a baby coming into the world, and considering the difficult conception and birthing process for Achtung Baby, "gestation" would've been quite apt!
