The Music and Lyrics / Re: U2 and Politics Take the poll
« Last post by u2live on Today at 06:19:14 AM »
haven't missed a tour in 30 years but I'm skipping this one and ticket prices is a major reason............

Gone will fit pretty well near Lights of Home

The encore should open with Mofo. Imagine that sound kicking in during a long silence!

Also Please could work with The Troubles and/or Sunday Bloody sunday

Actually, I would be happy with and love any song, but those will fit the best. I don't think If God Will Send His Angels and Miami are songs they still can play

I think it's the best opener of the album Songs Of Experience  ;)

My gut says Gone and/or Discotheque are shoo-ins for E&I. Surely they'll know it's going to be 75% the same audience that showed up for I&E and the setlist has got to move a bit, as well as the visuals on the much hyped new screen. I'm also going to put money on this being the first tour since JT to drop Streets. Mark my words!

"Love is all we have left" is the best opener on U2 album. And there are contenders like "Where the streets have non name" or "Zoo Station"... But this song is just wonderful, and U2, as big as they are, had the guts to put it as an opener. Bravo!!!

So no point looking at sales. I presume most people are like me. Look at streams mind you.

Billboard's sales figures take streaming into account:

i have to say,,,,this has to be probably the most downbeat...if not most depressing opener...to a u2 album ever. this is a b-side at best or an obscure album track....i guess they wanted to go against type,,,,but meh i want to feel on a high like i did with discotheque, bd, vertigo,,,even NLOTH....


Really? To me it sounds very hopeful. Anxious, but hopeful. Nothing to stop this from being the best day ever. Nothing to keep us from where we should be.

Me too. It's like its written from the perspective on someone who's teetering on the brink of death and has an epiphany and hears a voice telling him not to close his eyes and stay in the land of the living. "A baby cries on a doorstep" is a good metaphor I think; there's something or someone at home who needs your love, so you can't leave home now. Love is all we have left and you need to pull through for their sake.

The Music and Lyrics / Re: Which never-performed songs do you most want to hear on E+I?

My three choices just to hear played live in concert would be "Drowning Man," "Heartland," and "White as Snow." But a better thematic mix to go along with Songs of Experience would be "Acrobat," "When I Look at the World," and "One Step Closer." So I went with the more thematic mix.

Congrats to Mr.TheTim for being the first member to answer this.
The answer was David Lee Roth - because he'd scare the sh** out of the Russians.

2 down and 2 to go. Check back next week for another chance to win. But we're going to mix it up a bit - we'll take the first 10 correct answers to next week's question and do a random drawing.
