Tours / Re: **SPOILERS** Which SOE song has been the best live?
« Last post by redapple129 on June 18, 2018, 10:58:54 PM »
Just came back from night 2 of DC. Love is Bigger certainly is a great moment in the show, American Soul is the great big live rocker follow-up to Vertigo they've been trying for on the last several albums, and RFD is a song I very much wish showed up at my show. But this arrangement of Best Thing, especially with the message to his wife and kids beforehand that's not just the same spiel recycled night after night, is just the sweetest thing in the world to me, I can't help putting it at the top of my personal list.

This list of songs represented the worst of the shows I saw and the time when the audience was the least into it. None of the above. How about a poll with ALL the songs they are playing?

You could read that this was a poll specifically about which song from the new album was best live, no? If you want a poll that's about which song is best overall, nothing's stopping you from going off and making it yourself.

I'm Irish and I've never heard of that expression.

Is "No middle in amongst puddle and piddle" an Irish expression or something?! Google has never heard of it!

OK, found a clearer recording and it now sounds more like "No middle in the muddle, just puddle and piddle"... but my question remains - is this an existing phrase somewhere??

I'll get this right eventually... it's "No middle in the muddle, just puddle in the piddle", and he switched it round to "piddle in the puddle" (which makes a bit more sense) at the second show tonight, so even he is struggling to say it correctly. :P

Glad the Bible justification stuff got a mention this time - I've been waiting for that to come up! Once this DVD filming is out of the way and they can make a few more topical references, I hope he has a proper rant about the border situation...

While cutting funding isn't ideal, at some point, the behavior of the people they've been trying to assist for all these years needs to change. If it hasn't changed, then it's time to reconsider funding.

So, U2 can now add to their bio that they have performed on a Pulitzer Prize winning album.

Blackout & Love is Bigger. I stood a ton even though the crowd was geezery and wanted to sit.

I've never heard anything like it.

Could be satirically damning the middle, the moderate way of compromise and getiing along. Just a puddle of pi*s in the efforts of compromise.

Ah, I only just now read the DC transcript, so that's fitting. Let's hear from any Irish if it's a saying. It's quite perfect for him, dunno if he made it up or not.

EdgeUK8_my_mind, here are some pretty cool projections from Muse's Drone tour. Plenty more throughout the show. Looks like some pretty cool tech, & probably much cheaper & easier to do than a giant LED screen.

Also, anyone know if we can embed YouTube videos in @U2 forum posts? I can't work it out.
