It's an exciting time again in U2 land. About 3-4 recording projects and two legs of touring in the coming months, and this has again divided opinion on what U2 should and shouldn't be doing with their creativity.
I think we need a thread for all the well meaning (=OBSESSED!!!) agitators (I sometimes fall in this cathegory, I admit) and "know-it-all-and-better" mentalistas who have one or more idea for the future of U2.

I started this thread strictly for fun
, to collect insane and funny pieces of advice, demands and commandments (somewhat like the lyrics to Numb, but don't be negative all the time kids).

Go crazy, up with the banners and cardboard signs, LET'S DREAM OUT LOUD!!!

I've borrowed this from Brian Eno's Oblique Strategies:

WORK AT A DIFFERENT SPEED

Ok, sat... Here it is... My advice for U2's next steps:

Let Edge sing a song on the album, it's been a long time...
Take the time to make a great video (that means a great idea, not just an expensive one...)
Quit smoking again, the four of you... we deserve your best!  ;D
Give us a double album, not an E.P.
Bring the joy back... NLOTH was great, but it did make me wanna jump off a building...
Play Acrobat, mates... can't you hear the deafening sound of your fans asking for it?

That's it for now... What do you think, fellas?  :)

So, you want Lungs a'la Bonolese? :-/ :-)

Some great ideas DB, especially the double album and we are indeed in dire need of a great conceptual video...

I think there were quite a lot of joyous songs on NLOTH though.

I demand that U2 play a kick-ass version of Bad at each and every show I go to.  And while we're at it, they can also give me GA tickets, airfare and pay my hotels to at least half a dozen shows of my choice.  Are you listening, boys?

Great thread.

Be more daring
Take more risks
You don't have to be so commercial anymore, you don't need to prove anything
Get more dirty in your RnR and not so poppy
Believe in yourselves
Don't second guess, trust your instincts
