MoFo/I Will Follow
« on: June 02, 2020, 01:38:53 PM »
After so many years, just watched the Popmart Mexico-dvd. I got chills when Mofo fades and transforms into I Will Follow. Edge's guitar riffs are so similar in both of these songs that it couldn't be coincidence? When we all know that both of these songs are about Bono's mother.

 Is there any kind of explanation or story about that riff by the band? Or is it just me imagining things? ;)

Lyrically absolutely they are linked. As I would add Iris to this also. I play guitar and although not an expert I don't think the chords/key are all that similar. You may be hearing the same tempo. Just my opinion. And either way it was cool to hear them together on Pop I don't know why but I've been listening to that record a lot lately.
