(more than) 12 songs on the new album.
« on: January 05, 2009, 12:39:08 PM »
counting the songs in Q and Rollingstone there are at least 12 songs:

Get your boots on
Stand up / Stand up comedy
Crazy Tonight
Unknown caller
Tripoli
Cedars of Lebanon
Magnificent
Moments of surrender
Every breaking wave
No line on the horizon
Winter
Breathe
...

Are there more coming?

I just let out a prolonged internal scream of "omg omg omg omg omg" after reading the rolling stone bit. I dunno which feeling is stronger, drooling or almost peeing in my pants.

Quote
"Stand Up Comedy" lands between the Beatles' "Come Together" and Led Zep's "Heartbreaker."
  ;D ;D AWESOME

I also really like the name, depending on the song I think it's cooler than just plain ol' "Stand Up"

"Every Breaking Wave" = swelling soul-pop...SOUL?!  YESSSSSS

possibility of even MORE songs is just unbearable I'd be keen on falling into a coma and waking up from it on March 2nd 'cause this is just too much.

Hell, at least I can FIND Rolling Stone, I can't find the "January" issue of Q (w/ U2 on the cover) ANYWHERE, including 2 Barnes & Noble outlets.

And "Stand Up Comedy"???? I can get behind a song titled "Stand Up," but a U2 song titled "Stand Up Comedy"??? Surely this is a mistake.

It will say February on it and I dont think the US gets it until that month or the week before!

Yeah, that was what I figured after my third attempt to find the magazine failed.  :)

Me, too, I'll have the stand staked out!

I always collect the magazines that come out before the release of an album. History in the making!

I have to say. Im really excited by the descriptions of these songs. Abit worried before about the style they were going with but my fears have been put down.  ;D

Not to be a buzz-kill here, but keep in mind that both of these magazine articles are referencing songs that were still incomplete at the time the interviews took place.  There is no guarantee that all of these songs will be included on the album.

It's fun to get excited about what's being said... but to avoid disappointment I'm not expecting any more than 11 songs.  Any more than that and it's a bonus.

I really dig the descriptions a lot, except the "pop" worries me.

Though the description of Tripoli sounds mouthwatering.

I gotta agree with FishLips.  The Rolling Stones article was taken from songs they heard in December.  A whole lot could have gone on between then and now.  U2 is notorious for tinkering with an album right up to the last minute.  The song list doesn't even agree with the one in 'Q" magazine, does it?  (I know I could take a moment and look it up, but I'm too lazy.)  I don't think this article is the final word, tantalizing as it may sound.  (An unexpectedly slinky groove?  A hypnotically loping bass line?  My mouth is watering!)
