It's bruised, I tell ya!

It makes less sense that Bono would sing "True colors fly in blue and black, blue silken sky and burning flag," since it's completely redundant. Plus, blue and black are the colors of a bruise, and the bruised sky is set in juxtaposition to the burning flag.

You're outta your league, kids....
To me it sounds like blue. I don't care if it makes sense, it's what it sounds like!

Boom Cha!

It's bruised, I can hear in the original studio version that he makes a "br" sound right there and says bruised. Blue would have no "Br" sound to it.

Exile is correct.

But clearly the end of one is Bacon, Bacon, Bacon and Haaaam. Bono likes pork.

To he honest, I'm finding The album version of Streets somewhat "weak"(ish) after hearing so many great live versions. It's time for Steets' reign to end. Long live Velvet Dress!

Hey what do I know. By the time I reach that point in Bad my eyes are usually glazed over in boredom.

Zing.

You know what else needs to end like 2 minutes earlier?  [Insert Droo-loved song here...I can think of two...one that really drags at the beginning and one at the end].  P.S. did I see you that you picked SYCMIOYO? I thought you were rather uninspired by the Bomb tunes.

Please don't let MLK beat any other songs. While it is a very nice little song, it has no music other than the simple atmosphere.

It does get a mention in "The Perks of Being a Wallflower," which is coming out as a movie in June.

I would make more accounts and change that, but last time I made a random second account M2 said he had to delete it.

*facepalm* Damn you epic U2 anthem that is Streets.

I always find the use of the word eggs in any other context other than the food odd.  :D
