If the album is called "Siren," it would be a little spooky.  I was on the bus last night going home from work and "In God's Country" came up.  I hadn't heard it in a while and was thinking to myself how even though I can't seem to remember what I ate for dinner the night before, I can sing along in my head to songs I haven't heard in years.  I had a similar experience last week when listening to "The End" by The Doors.  I probably hadn't heard that song all the way through in over a decade, but I could easily remember every line.

Anywho -- in the part of "In God's Country" I found myself fixating on the "like a siren she calls to me," line.  I remember thinking when I was in high school, I thought of the word siren in that song as a police siren, or something of that nature -- a sort of warning.  But now, I looked at it as a mythological siren, calling Bono to crash into something, or something ominous like that.  I remember thinking of that word last night and thinking how it's funny your views change with time and had a private moment of the beauty of language and words and meanings.

Siren would be a great title for a U2 album, filled what that standard Bono ambiguity.  It could mean an alarm, a warning, or a "siren who calls to him."  I'd dig it, if it was true, which who knows if it is.

That was an interesting read, thanks!

Read it and weep? I'm glad he suffered for what he did.I'd rather weep for the victims the scum murdered in cold blood.
That type of execution only puts the justice system at the same level of the murderer.

The love them or hate them thing is such an overused cliche and its kind of self perpetuating as well. I personally like Coldplay a lot, they're not really anywhere near what U2 does for me, but I do enjoy their music and can really get into it when I'm in the mood. Chris Martin seems like a genuine dude as well.
