It's not just a cover! T-Rex had a huge influence on U2 music.

"The Fly", "Even Better Than The Real Thing", "Zoo Station", "Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me", "Elevation", and most recently "The Blackout", "Lights of Home", etc... come from their loving of Marc Bolan.

I can't wait to hear the U2 version of "Get it on"!

Hey, if it's great, I'll be excited.

For one thing, I assumed we would get absolutely bupkis next year.

I liked I've Got You Under My Skin a lot. Dancing Barefoot was ok. Those are covers.

I agree, if it's good, I'll be excited too.  Even if it's a cover.  Cover's can be done very cleverly and can produce something unique.

BONO31 is 100% correct about T. Rex and Marc Bolan.  Bolan's influence is all over the place in rock music.  T. Rex is widely known for their influence on glam rock for one. Bowie and Bolan were close friends.  Cover's of their songs have been done by a bunch of other bands.

If you want to learn more about Marc Bolan, all you need is Wiki:

I'm pretty sure we'll have a lots of U2 news next year. If it's not "Songs of Ascent" or a tour (Experience Tour in Australia, New
 zealand, etc...), we'll have at least :
- 1 DVD (Joshua Tree Tour)
- 2 DVD (Experience + Innocence Tour live in Berlin)
- U2 cover of T-Rex
- "Where the shadow falls" performed by Willie Nelson from "Waiting for the miracle to come" soundtrack...

Have you heard this T-Rex cover of "the children of revolution" by Bono, Gavin Friday and Maurice Seezer?
It was for the Moulin Rouge soundtrack and it reminds me "Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me"

So...   this must not be happening, hmmm?  I was sort of hopeful.  Wasn't there supposed to be some sort of collab with Willie Nelson coming out last year, as well?  Then again, last year seems so 15 years ago.

Better late than never.

Never a big fan of 'Get it on'. Preferred 'Telegram Sam', 'Jeepster', '20th Century Boy' & 'Children of the Revolution'. They rocked!
