The Music and Lyrics / Calling GLORIA lovers RIGHT NOW
« Last post by laoghaire on Today at 09:49:27 AM »

What is the best part for you? Hearing that TWO THREE FOUR and knowing we're about to start hopping? The end part where they are all yelling? The quiet reflective verses followed by an ass kicking from Edge?

For me, it's the breakdown. We get a little solo from Edge and we go into the breakdown, a groovy Adam piece with Larry cymbals for emphasis. But the crowning GLORY is the POWER CHORD FROM EDGE that restarts the whole yelling mess again. CHURCH.

I want to hear from you. That's right.
The Music and Lyrics / Empty spaces

One musical device I love from U2 is the use of gaps from an instrument where the rejoining of it in the mix pushes the song to another level.

One example is Mysterious Ways. Adam sits out the verses but it's really the breakdown/bridge that I love. I can't actually swear Adam is not in there at all, he might be playing some of the notes, but if so they are just brief punctuations and higher up. When Bono sings"you were held how by this LOVE while" and the bass groove kicks back in, it's insane. Edge is making so much noise that you think the band is complete, but then the key bass groove starts playing and it's another level.

A smaller example is TUF, where Adam sits out a beat or two here and there. It's his absence that makes his presence louder.

Another example is NLOTH on the chorus, that grinding NOISE from Edge quiets down. You get through the chorus and Larry starts murdering Yamahas, and that EDGE NOISE IS BACK YESSSSSS.

Have you noticed any examples of empty spaces that gets the music to another level?

No, I was thinking Adele ;D (joking!)
Yes it is an intimate song but nothing wrong with dreaming out loud.
