Aw, I'd meet up but I'm going to Washington this go around.  One tip--there was very little in the way of cabs as we left the United Center last time.  I would definitely plan to call for a Uber unless you are driving and parking somewhere.

I think Sorrows is right and I think it would be big talk for five minutes but then that's what everybody would think of U2 forevermore. "They just ripped OR." And logic (done with full permission and credit) will make no difference - "I guess they can't come up with something original." Even if literally everyone is doing this and they are completely aboveboard.

It sounds hard to pull off live, and I imagine part of the reason they didn't release it as a single was because of the OneRepublic connection.  All it would take is one intrepid internet reporter to go get that video of them testing the song, and boom, banner headline, "U2's new single is stolen from OneRepublic,"  With many already thinking U2 have lost some of their creativity, that story could have been yet another hammer blow to their reputation.
what video? I heard OneRepublic singer (U2 producer Ryan Tedder) and his guitarist came up with the guitar part? Or the bass part too?

Nowadays mainstream doesn't care about any investigative journo on U2. No one cared they released the band-performing-in-Mexico "trailer" for Get Out oyow music vid, and nothing came of it.

General U2 Discussion / Re: Why is U2 your favorite band?

This is a great question
Tgey are my favorite when I first heard and saw the video for i still haven't found what i'm looking for that changed my life for starters they sounded so different from every one else in the 80s Bonos voice the lyrics made the hair on my neck stand up i got the Joshua tree album as soon as I could with lawn mower money lol from then on i listened to them non stop found out about the earlier stuff and been a big fan since
I was love that the lyrics always speak to me i love how they always push the envelope with their music, and when i finally saw them on the popmart tour i was totally blown away
I try to collect as much stuff as i can Knoxville Tn doesn't get a lot of U2 stuff sadly but i get what i can i don't do that with any other band
I gave in a bit and got Apple Music. I took a look at my wish list and calculated that it would take decades before actually buying the albums would end up being cheaper than having Apple Music itself. However, the way I use it is that I explore various albums and if I really like them, I add them to my wish list to actually buy them. At the end of the day, I like owning the music, so I basically wait until the various albums I want go on sale and then buy them at discounted prices. I think that once I acquire most of what I want, I'll cancel my subscription. At the end of the day, I do believe in buying the music I really like so I can support the artists who make it, but Apple Music allows me to soften the economic blow a bit in the interim.

This song really needs the full band and all the amplifiers IMO. It was nice to see the accoustic but I definitely still prefer the full band version. Can't wait to see it live!
