Wow, that seems really low.  Does that count the give away CD's we received after ordering concert tickets?  I think I had about three freebies.

Geez, I think that U2 is a master of the oh, oh's....

There's a Simple Minds song called "This Fear of Gods" that starts off "someone's singing in the shower".  It sounds great when I'm in the shower :)

Did you see "The Blackout" live?  It really rocked!

General U2 Discussion / Re: Your Top 20 U2 Songs ranked!

Scarlet is an interesting choice.  I am very fond of the whole "October" album and rank it amongst my top all-time albums.  The heavy rhythm section sounds great in the car on long journeys.

    Since SOI/SOE were companion pieces, I think it makes sense that the tours were similar.  Next tour, it would be nice to see them drop the Vertigo/Elevation/UTEOW stuff, which has been done a lot, for something fresher.
     As far as "rock" songs go, I think "Blackout" and "American Soul" are good examples of what modern U2 will bring across.  I personally liked them, but I would also expect to see more ballad type material in SOE, or whatever they call their next effort.

News and Rumors / Re: Looooong Bono interview, Chicago, 6th Dec

I confess, I get bored hearing about the content (Bono's charities, although God love him for doing it); nevertheless, the man's manner of speaking, accent, inflections, smile, etc. are still priceless.  He's still a fascinating person and one of this age"s great philanthropists and personalities.

I missed it on 360 as I didn't go to shows on the latter part of that tour.
I can nail the current acoustic version on a good day with a bit of practice.  It suits my voice and can sing acapella!
Is Bono up for a duet? ;)

Heh, I've been singing this one around the house the past few days because of this thread . . . but I'm sure not nailing it. : (

Bono really belts out the chorus on the piano version, so if you can even come close to nailing that part, I'm envious.

I've also revisited the 360 versions thanks to this thread and really like the more introspective vibe, though the lyric of the chorus is quite clunky.
I think that I can nail it when played on guitar or in the shower. Recordings claim otherwise.

I get inspired whatching Bono sings this. He expresses himself as an artist very well and sings good. Maybe his technique is not good (can someone confirm that?) but it's still a rock song because he is not too hard trying to sing it perfect. Mistakes in the song make it even better

I tend to copy his vocal delivery style!  I'm contralto so I can do most U2 songs! I can do the TUF high notes but it doesn't come so naturally!!
You're a woman, right?  :P you're do i ng great. I'm just jealous
