wait.

THAT could be a single?

*shoots self*



okay now in all seriousness, not a bad try to give him credit.  EW is damn right.  There aint one lil bugger on that show who can outsing Bono.  probably on the planet, either.  but anyway.  music...eh.  just bad.  bland and just poorly scored.  a studio version can fix that, but still.  now, what i want to know is WHY did the lyrics get changed? was this a condition that got set so he could do a cover version? it sounds like it...most covers dont change lyrics, at least in my experience.  but whoever did those lyric changes should be decapitated.  'a rose is in bloom?' 'after the sun, all the colors came out?' can you please destroy this song just a little bit more??

nice try.  all i can hope is that it boosts interest in u2 more.

Lee just won. So that means he'll release it... :( :( :(


this is a good thing for U2...
imo.

Yeah. It is a good thing for U2 ;D but I just wished he did a better version.

it most certainly will. and it will certainly do well on radio. very very good for U2's profile among the younger people. probably the most effective form of promotion they could've asked for.
im very glad this is being released. it's not like the U2 version is being deleted from every CD and ipod ever and is being replaced with this! so it sucks. that'll just get younger people more into the original, and better one again..

I'm not thrilled with Lee's version, nor am I thrilled with the fact that it's going to be a single but...U2's all about trying to reach to a younger audience. That's just fact, whether I like it or not. And if through Idol, this helps them get closer to their goal, then more power to them. :)

The disgusting thing is that when it releases, scores of tweenagers with no concept of what good music is will blindly insist it's better than the original, just because. Fml.

I'm afraid that young kids like us would now connect Beautiful Day with this Lee guy more than they would U2.  To put myself in the shoes of a 16 year old girl in Idol's main demographic, I wouldn't care about who's song it is originally.  Lee sang it, thats all I care about.

uhh that wont happen becauuse of the fame of u2's version and the fact that it's still relatively new.
lee's version wont last as long :D.
u2's will be a classic forever.
this wont be one of those cases where the remake takes over. idol people last about.. what, 2 weeks before the disappear off the radar?

"After the sun, all the colours came out..." Not only is that an abominable change to the lyric, it also makes no meteorological sense, please.

Okay guys,
think of it this way...

IF ANY OF YOU made it on American Idol.. would you choose a U2 song to sing?
Yes, you would.
I know I would! It would be the first song Id pick!
So I do NOT think its fair to be bashing on Lee right now just because hes a fan of U2 and beautiful day and chose to sing it,
cause if we all had his voice... we probably would too.
And of COURSE it didnt sound like Bono.. covers hardly ever sound better then the original ( Especially on American Idol ),
but thats no reason to be hating on him and freaking out because you believe
" NO ONE SHOULD EVER COVER U2 "

Also, im sure he didnt mean to change up the words. Hes singing for the title of American idol infront of millions of people!
Hes going to be nervous and its easy to screw up. ( I know.. I sang Santa Baby this Christmas at a concert and I was so scared
I was singing stuff that made NO sense )

Now I know you might be thinking im sticking up for him cause Im a fan of him, but thats not the case at all! I was SO sad he won
and I was rooting for Crystal the whole time...
im only sticking up for him cause I think its fair.
 :D :D :D :D

There I feel better.





P.S. Like SG said... I love music and I love Ai ;)
