Who likes Edge's voice?
« on: September 20, 2011, 11:11:45 PM »
I think Van Diemen's is one of U2's best songs and I absolutely love Edges voice. Someone asked Edge why he wasn't the lead singer and he said "Well what would Bono do?" hahaha  :D

The question should be, who doesn't like Edge's voice?

Exactly.

I love Edge's voice, but I especially love how well it blends with Bono's voice.  Beautiful.

I read a story somewhere, maybe in U2 by U2, that Bono was late to practice once in the early days, so Edge sang lead vocals.  All the girls there like Edge's voice better than Bono's, so Bono was never late again!  Bono's personality is better suited to being a front man than Edge's, though.

He is the reason U2 never will need backup singers!

And he is the perfect fit to sing with Bono.

I think that Edge's voice has grown FAR beyond Van Diemen's Land. -- I'm sure others may have noticed, he just seems MUCH more comfortable and confident in himself and his talents. He actually looks like he's happy and having fun, and I feel his voice is just as strong and interesting as Bono's.

As a Bonogirl, I will never tire of Bono being front and center. I'm one of those that finds his need to be the center of attention completely adorable...okay, I admit...ANYTHING Bono does is completely hot in my book, but I digress...

I'd really love to see Edge "come out front" more in future projects.  --- Wow, could you imagine the next album having, like, two or three songs where Edge is the lead singer?  :o ;) Really!

Haha!!  :D :D I don't think Bono would ever stand to let that happen...at least full time.

The more I think about it the more I like the thought of it...maybe an album with a few songs with Edge as the singer, or maybe a song where the two of them sort of sing in partnership instead of layered atop one another. ---Not to the point of being "boy band" where each one sings a line in turn...but maybe Edge sings the main song and Bono does the bridge or vice versa.

I'd love to hear Edge sing lead on a few songs in an album!! It would be a nice change, though Bono's voice is great too. :)

I really like Edge's voice. As others have said, he harmonizes amazingly well with Bono.

my favorite part about edge's voice is that effortless falsetto he's got going on!  bono powers those notes, but edge's voice just floats... fitting, no?
