General U2 Discussion / Post Concert Depression
« Last post by coachtmoore on September 19, 2017, 11:55:39 PM »
Does anyone out there feel meloncoly, sad, or depressed after going to the the 2017 Joshua Tree concert?  Am I alone on this?  Please hear me out before you judge.

I am not a depressed person.  However, U2 and specifically The Joshua Tree album were always the soundtrack of my life.  The meaning of the songs seemed change as I go through different phases of life.  In the small rural town I live in U2 songs are like a foreign language.  If it's not top 40 or pop country music, then no one around here can hear anything else.

Now to my point.  After the concert, which was awesome, I came to a realization that I will NEVER get to hear U2 sing those songs again live. I know I can watch YouTube concert footage or listen to CDs, but it won't be the same.  It feels like the passing of an old friend or that there was turning of one of life's pages.  There is nobody I can "really" talk to who can understand how I feel.

Has anyone else experience this feeling?

You gotta cry without weeping. . . I have no tears.
Talk without speaking. . . I have no words.
Scream without raising you voice. . . Can anyone hear me?

This is the first time that I have ever posted on a forum/blog.  I rarely even post on social media

Most of the examples given so far don't bother me much but I have always strongly disliked the "like butter on toast" line out of Winter to find something that rhymed with ghost. Think he could have found some better options there. Don't quite like the chanting elements of Unknown Caller either but at least was trying something a bit different there.

Freedom has a scent like the top of a newborn baby's head? Really? That line is so good you use it in two separate songs?

Oh come on, don't tell me you don't occasionally unfurl your American flag and unwind with the wafting aroma of your placenta-scented candle.

Why is placenta such a relevant topic on this forum? Seems to come up once every few months!
