Is anyone else bothered by the "ATM machine" line?  Not that is doesn't sound right but the M in ATM stands for machine, so they are basically saying machine twice.

It bothers me immensely.

Em, it must be an Irish-ism. I've always heard people talk here about the "ATM Machine".

"Going to the ATM" sounds very American and I think we've alot of Americianism by Bono so far!!

Never thought about that before........I'm Italian and lived in Dublin for 6 years (and if that sounds weird know that now I live in Spain :-) ...) and all the Irish people that I know always call it the ATM Machine. So probably true it has to be an irish-ism.

As for my favourite line is from Stand up comedy:
The DNA lottery may have left you smart

Generally Americans just say ATM. we do, however, say PIN number (personal identification number) all the time. at least he didn't use that  ;D

Help; which song contains the following line:
God is love
And love is evolution’s very best day


My favorite line:

There was a time I knew a love divine.
Then came a time I thought it knew me not.
Who can forgive forgiveness when forgiveness is naught?
Only the Lamb as white as snow.

Stand Up Comedy

Btw in my opinion the most underrated song of the album, all the reviews I've seen point at this song as one of the worse if not THE worse....to me one of the best

Thanks for the answer.

I like Stand Up Comedy, too.  I'd rate it as 5th or 6th best on this album at this time........but this is a good album.  My two boys (ages 5 and 7) like "Boots" the best and then Stand Up.  They also like Magnificent and Breathe a little bit.  They are good boys!  :)

Vertigo is still their favorite song of all time.

It's not if I believe in love, but if love believes in me--MOS

I am also completely taken with all of Breathe right now; the more I hear the line about traveling salesmen and cockatoos the more I like it.

But I really love "Doc says I'm fine or dying"   seems to sum up all of our fears and uncertainties in one line

Where I came from there were no hills at all- White as Snow

Once I knew there was a love divine
Then came a time I thought it knew me not- White as Snow

Now this dry ground it bears no fruit at all- White as Snow

To sleep the night shooting out the stars- White as Snow

If only a heart could be as white as snow- White as Snow

These days are better than that
These days are better than that- Breathe

There's nothing you have that I neeeeeeeeeeeeeeeed
I can breeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeathe- Breathe

Walk out, into the sunburst street
Sing your heart out, sing my heart out- Breathe
