Title: The U2 Confessional
Post by: Tumbling Dice on May 06, 2010, 09:10:18 PM
A thread for confessing your U2 sins.


I have never seen the 'U2: Live At Red Rocks - Under A Blood Red Sky' video in my life. :-[

I know it's shameful. :-[

I don't like Bono's Vertigo era long hair, and I never really liked the song "Lemon."  I listen to it occasionally, but I have to be in a rare mood!

Hahahahahaha, I with you on all accounts. I have the Red Rocks album, but not the DVD; Zooropa is my least favourite album; Slane Castle/Sydney/Vertigo-Chicago are 10X better than thePopmart DVD; and thr Joshua Tree is the best U2 album.

I don't doubt that you have. O that my tastes and instincts were more like those of mortal men! But alas, I am cursed, plagued with this wretched brilliance....

But as long as we're Mea Culpa-ing, I'll admit that I never saw ZooTV. I was quite the spiritual kid back then, and those devil-horns and burning crosses scandalized me. Can I get a Te Absolvo ??

I will not admit to anyone I like U2
I have never watched ANY DVDs of them, even rattle and hum (i want to though)
I have never read one of their books
I do not like Zooropa (except for Stay, Zooropa, Dirty Day, and the First Time)
I find Achtung Baby to be just alright/above average, (I dont  like even better...zoo station, and only sometimes i like until the end of the world
I believe the Joshua Tree is their best, and all of the 2000 releases rank among their best
I believe Boy is their worst album
I do not have any U2 tshirts
I have never seen U2 live and will probably never get the chance
...and i abandoned people on here

Ok, now the Confessional is finally getting interesting  *muahaha*

Georgia, I too like making fun of Bono too.  As well as the others whenever the opportunity presents itself. I just think we have a lot more opportunites with Bono. lol.  Love you B. ;)

Deco20, I too hear "CREAN"! And I am always like "how the hell did that get in there past the producers & everyone?"

DesertSky, You will be happy to know that I bought the rest of JT  off ITunes yesterday (the deluxe version I will have you know) :D As well as a whole bunch of other U2 stuff.  :)

Shockdocta, *shakes head*  at you thinking AB is just ok. ;)

Monica, You need to listen to Salome. Stat!

Bono has spoken about this before, he has always said their best work is ahead of them and they are still learning the craft. He relates their work to that of a movie director or a painter, I remember him saying who's to say Martin Scorcese's best work isn't ahead of him. Larry has said that the band are probably not able to repeat their best moments on an album. I think there is a lot of magic left to come, I don't know why but I just believe in them.

That does sound like classic Bono BS to me. ::)  There were flashes of brilliance on NLOTH and if that's any indication of where they're at then they still have some tricks left up their sleeve. ;)

Well yea of course it is, what's he gonna say "Yup sorry guys, our best album is WAY behind us". Now another GREAT album, maybe, but they seem to really drop the ball in the track selection & sequencing part, that's truly what keeps NLOTH from GREAT status.

Post by: zooey on May 09, 2010, 04:34:30 PM
Very interesting, this thread.  Let's see.  Some of mine are "original sins" and others are up on the board already.

- I don't own October and I've only listened to it once or twice
- I'm sometimes embarrassed by Bono's behavior (not onstage, not while I'm there, but in retrospect, or when he's not onstage sometimes)
- I don't really care about Adam

Very interesting, this thread.  Let's see.  Some of mine are "original sins" and others are up on the board already.

- I don't own October and I've only listened to it once or twice
- I'm sometimes embarrassed by Bono's behavior (not onstage, not while I'm there, but in retrospect, or when he's not onstage sometimes)
- I don't really care about Adam
- I hated Larry's greasy Vertigo hair
- I've only listened to Passengers once and the only Passengers song I own is Miss Sarajevo
- Although I've loved this band since about 1986 I didn't see them live until 2005

Well, those aren't too bad I guess...And I have to agree about Larry's Vertigo hair. It didn't suit him at ALL!

I illegally downloaded 40-50 U2 songs before I bought my first album.

Part of the reason I dislike October is because I'm uncomfortable about so many religious references.

I think a bunch of the people who claim Pop is the best album only do so because they like being "original".

Ridiculous statement. I LOVE Pop. I love it because to me, my ears (which is what counts) it has the best lyrics and melodies, it is the album that gives me the greatest pleasure to listen to. Do i think it is their best, no, to me that would be Achtung Baby! But I prefer to listen to Pop over everything else in the context of the 'album'

I certainly do not pick Pop as my favorite because I want to be original! Silly thing to say.

Here's my confession: I think that people who judge others' motives only do it because deep down they are still pining for their father's acceptance, and also because they feel inferior because they were never good at sports. Oh, and also because they like to cross-dress when the moon is full.

On second thought, scratch that: Judging motives is fun.

Wow....... Your penance is to listen to October 20 times in the next seven days, and to join one of the Adam appreciation threads! Remember - although Larry put up the notice to form the band, Adam was the original manager. U2 would not be where they are without him.

Let me first say that I love Bono, but.....I also enjoy making fun of him.   :P

I think that's one sin most Bonofolk commit.

My confession is that I have never heard any version of Salome.

I'm a U2 snob. I don't think that people who cannot name all albums in chronological order should be allowed to attend U2 concerts.
I second that opinion. Let's start standing at the doors of the shows & quizzing everyone walking in.

In making my top 100 U2 songs CD compilation for my car I omitted the following tracks -

Vertigo
Elevation
Beautiful Day
COBL
Magnificent
ISHFWILF
Mysterious Ways
I Will Follow
Discotheque
God Pt 2
OOTS
Yaweh


also -  I DESPISE the fact that Edge wears one of those f£$%^& stupid Madonna microphones on the 360 tour. He instantly loses all 100% of his cool. I know its so he can move around and stuff BUT ITS NOT WORTH IT MAN!

apart from that Im clean. I swear.

P.S maybe, just maybe the people who enjoy POP might just enjoy it because its really good and lyrically up there with their best work? You could say that anyone that doesn't name JT or AB as their favorite is doing so to be original - have a conversation with a POP lover and you'll soon see that the love and understanding of it goes way beyond posturing.

Don't worry, i didn't even bother trying to go to that tour. HORRID album. Maybe that's another confession of mine? I like 4, MAYBE 5 songs off HTDAAB, and i can't STAND the rest of it.

Gurl, you need to get JT (Deluxe version. worth it.)  & AB. At least.
Then get TUF & RAH (album & DVD).

Last night was watching VH1. Theres a new show called Top 100 things men do that will guarantee they're Undateable (or something like that), They showed a commercial for it & they were saying Men should never ever wear bedazzled jeans. They showed a pic of Edge in his AB era Bedazzled jeans from the waist down. I lol'd for at least a minute straight. And rewinded 3 x's.

I love you Edge & your c.1991 Bedazzled jeans. I dont care what they say.

I find 3/4 members of the band attractive.
I feel guilty for not finding the 4th attractive. lol.  
Thats all I got for now.

No, no, yes, yes and yes.  And can I add that, while he's still attractive, Larry doesn't do it for me as much anymore.  :(

"Mercy" is below average and I'm glad it was left off the record.  That's right, I said it.  If they ever decide to finish it, I'll reconsider my position.

Also, I love "A Man & A Woman," "One Step Closer," and "Wild Honey."  (Proceeds to board up his windows for the oncoming hurricane of abuse)

However, I can name all the albums in chronological order so I should be good to keep coming to the shows.

I also have Salome on my iPod, so that's got to count for something, right?

My big confession: at the moment, another Irish band is far more important and meaningful to me than U2 (or any other band); I'd go so far as to say that, for the time being at least and possibly for good, they've overtaken U2 as my favourite band.

Nooooooo!!!!!!!  :o

"Mercy" is below average and I'm glad it was left off the record.  That's right, I said it.  If they ever decide to finish it, I'll reconsider my position.

Also, I love "A Man & A Woman," "One Step Closer," and "Wild Honey."  (Proceeds to board up his windows for the oncoming hurricane of abuse)
However, I can name all the albums in chronological order so I should be good to keep coming to the shows.

I also have Salome on my iPod, so that's got to count for something, right?

Hey, I like "One Step Closer" and "Wild Honey", too.....SO WHAT?! :P They're good songs.

The Frames. I still love U2 and always will but am finding a lot more for me in a lot of ways in Glen Hansard's songs, both with The Frames and the Swell Season, at the moment. Music is like that though - sometimes you don't control what speaks to you emotionally etc.

The band does care for it.  They've said that, after the cut it from HTDAAB at the last second cause it would have made the album too long, they in fact do love the song.  Edge has even said recently that they will eventually release it.

I beg you to give it a listen.  Its amazing.  Trust me

I thought Mercy and Native Son were released at the same time, in the same package so to speak, when the U2 iPod was released. No?  ???

I agree that Native Son is better than Vertigo (though Vertigo is produced/mixed better). Unfortunately, the band didn't want such an earnest lyric for some reason or anther.

I'm a U2 snob. I don't think that people who cannot name all albums in chronological order should be allowed to attend U2 concerts.
I second that opinion. Let's start standing at the doors of the shows & quizzing everyone walking in.

I don't spend much time in the forum but this evening I dropped in while moping about my canceled plans to be at the show in Denver, and this thread has been entertaining.  I can't think of much in the way of confessions, but I don't plan to buy the Rose Bowl dvd in protest that Breathe was cut.

Having qualifications to get into a concert sounds great, but instead of the discography I would say people should be somewhat familiar with the new album.  Last fall I stood next to a couple nice guys who had wanted to see U2 for a long time and were excited to come here (they aren't from the US so they hadn't had the chance to see them locally) and pay a scalper hundreds of dollars for floor tickets, but when I asked how they liked NLOTH they said they had never heard it.  That frustrates me.

And by the way I am definitely jealous of Morleigh.

Post by: jabw10 on June 12, 2010, 10:12:42 PM
okay fine, if you must know (sigh).  as a teen, i had some knowledge of boy & war, never heard of october (which i love now), and i loved joshua tree u2, but when the zoo tv tour was on, i didn't get it, was completely freaked by macphisto (who i only saw/heard about from soundbytes on the news, etc since i never went to one of the shows).  THEN, in march 2009, i had no idea that u2 even still played together at all.  i had no idea zooropa or pop even existed and with the exception of vertigo and beautiful day, i didn't know any of their other releases until nloth.  ::)

having said that, i think having the benefit of listening to the back catalogue now allows me  to like and appreciate albums like zooropa & pop in a way i wouldn't have at the time they were released. i think it's easier to see the growth of the band and the music when it's in an historical context.

I too had 'fallen out of love with U2' during the Pop period which I regret because I now think that the Pop album and tour was one of the best eras in the bands history.

My major periods of U2 fandom were 1988-1993 & 2009-Present and long may it continue.

Snap, lorijane! I bought my Wembley ticket last year without telling him - he did say I was a big girl and could do what I wanted, but I didn't mention that *specific* event - and when I did tell him, he FLIPPED OUT.  I've kept him in the loop since.   :)

I went to see Paul McCartney on Sat just gone and for a split second I thought "This is far better than expected...... I should have listened to more of him as a teen instead of playing my R&T tape to the ground"
[/quote

Well he was around before Bono & even Bono respects him so its ok.... :D

I think Bono ruins Grace :-[ (the song)

The quality of his voice at the time ruins much of ATYCLB IMHO.



I totally agree. When I listen to Grace or WILATW, I just can't believe they didn't try for one more take. These kinds of things make me wonder why people love Behind so much.

Really? I think his vocals sound great in When I Look At The World.

I agree about Grace, though. He sounds tired and groggy.

He stumbles over the third word of the song: "When I loo-voice gives out-ook at the world...." And the chorus, "I try to be like you," demonstrates how thin and powerless his voice was at that time. It's much better now, at least in the studio.

I hear his voice as delicate and sensitive but in a really good way.  His "voice giving out" is almost like a window into his soul, because even though he isnt BELTING out that line, we're hearing Bono at an emotional high point  :)

Anywho...I'll give my confession.  :D

I think Bad is pretty overrated by my fellow U2 fans. Yeah, it's a good song but the lyrics seem repetitive and nonsensical to me. I think the instrumentation is fantastic, however.

Maybe the lyrics are just over my head, or maybe 'cos I haven't seen it performed live in person I'm not getting the full effect.

Ok, I'll prepare for the rotten vegetables to be thrown at me now.  :D

It's not one of the obvious ones like Miami or something - but Please.  :'( Everyone hears so much power and amazingness in it, but I...don't.

I hate the Boy album, except for "Out of Control."
I hate "Unknown Caller" ... even the guitar solo, which I believe to be generic.


And as a bonus:
I am tired of the Edge's knit cap. I miss cowboy hat Edge.

Even if you don't want to buy them, you can get them from Netflix or maybe rent one at a video store, depending on their selection.  I have rented several U2-related dvd's from Netflix, and some I've liked well enough to buy, others (not the concert dvd's, but documentaries) were a waste of time.

One thing I love so much about both those DVDs is that they play more like a movie than a concert, especially Zoo TV. It's a neat effect. :)

Warren Buffett isn't greedy, the overwhelming bulk of his wealth is invested in the productive economy (you know that which creates jobs and tax revenues), and his personal lifestyle is extremely modest for a man of his net worth.  He plans to donate his wealth to charity and has already gifted a large amount of Berkshire Hathaway stock to the Bill & Melinda Gates foundation.  He even named his private jet 'The Indefensible'.

Then limiting their company tax bill isn't going to make much difference since the only shareholders in U2 are U2+McGuinness, therefore when they pay out their dividends they're going to get clobbered by income tax back in Ireland. ???  Unless of course they don't pay income tax in Ireland.

they do. Your point being? U2's moving part of their tax, albeit a small part of it, was a business decision that in that large scheme of things might seem reasonable. And considering U2 Inc. pay taxes internationally makes this probably seem less important. But U2 Inc, a band supposedly proud of their heritage, thankful of the people that paid into the clubs and pubs in the 70s to see them, Irish people, don't quite view it that way.

Everyone's in a recession lads, and no-body quite likes a nice pair of fingers up from your friendly Irish band than Irish people - nice way to that they country you're from than take more money out. That's what I think all the quibble over the issue is rather than the actual reduction of tax burden.

Go to Amazon.com.  You can buy a used copy for as little as, are you ready for this, $0.01.  Yes a penny.  Shipping is only $2.98.  I buy from the Amazon used section all the time.  In fact I have bought several u2 items this way.
Here's the link

OK

I have never heard Mercy, Stateless, Salome or Native Son (although I bet I'd like them if I heard them)
I really HATE I'll Go Crazy If I Don't Go Crazy Tonight - and its a stupid name too
I think Magnificent is their best song since Beautiful Day
I'm glad they dropped Pride and Bullet the Blue Sky, I was sick of them (and wish they'd drop SBS too)
I think Get On Your Boots sounds awful on the Rose Bowl show
I don't think The Joshua Tree is in their top 5 albums, but I DO like it ;)
I hate The Wanderer, although maybe I'd like it if Bono or Edge sang it
I think Pop is a great album, but it took a long time to convince me
I like the short hair much better than the mullet
and finally....

I loved the 2001 version of Walk On (with the hallalujahs) but I'm not thrilled by the 360 rendition

glad I got that off my chest ;D




fardreamer, have you seen them perform it live?
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kF4mUq3hYyA

This thread is very amusing!  :D Let's see...

When I should have gotten into U2 (JT/R&H era) I swung towards NKOTB instead  :P
I used to hate Zoo Station and would always hit ff; as a result the true opener of AB to me is still EBTTRT
Regardless of the above 2 sentences, it takes me forever to figure out song acronyms  :D
Chicago was the first concert DVD I saw and I thought it was the bee's knees until I saw the others. Now it's at the bottom of my list and it has mainly to do with the lack of Bono/Edge interaction.
There's a whole lot I could confess about Bono/Edge but I'll spare you.
I too hate Larry's greasy Vertigo hair.
Sometimes I get so mad that Bono f'd up his voice, I feel like he really let everybody down because that was his instrument to take care of.
Just yesterday I illegally downloaded Best of 1990-2000 (I'll most likely buy the cd! I swear!)
I also placed a bid on eBay for Melon and now I'm not sure I want it anymore if I win it.

Phew! I might come back for more.  ;)

i've nothing to confess, but i will submit a u2 sin committed by my wife ;D.
she's not the biggest u2 fan (not helped by me whenever we return home after a night out and i insist on a few u2 tunes, and leave the album playing until she notices and then orders me to ipod a different band!). I dragged her to dublin 360 and she enjoyed it, but she still doesn't like u2??!!

anyway, we had a bit of a (huge) row one evening, and feeling that she needed to get one over on me, she proceeded to commit the felonous act of scraping the life out of my iconic zootv sydney dvd with a sharp implement after i had gone upstairs. i still hadn't noticed this a few days after the crime was committed, and it was then she confessed as she couldn't bear the ensuing worry and regret that enveloped her. after the initial shock and sense of loss, i actually started to laugh, as it illustrated how obsessed with u2 i must appear to her. needless to say, after promising me that she would, she still hasn't acquired a new sydney dvd for me!
i can't blame her to be honest.

Wow, that's a pretty crazy story, miami.  ;D

I guess it would be good to keep the fandom just a little bit under the wraps.

i've nothing to confess, but i will submit a u2 sin committed by my wife ;D.
she's not the biggest u2 fan (not helped by me whenever we return home after a night out and i insist on a few u2 tunes, and leave the album playing until she notices and then orders me to ipod a different band!). I dragged her to dublin 360 and she enjoyed it, but she still doesn't like u2??!!

This thread cracks me up.

My confessions...
-Adam is the most expendable member of the band, but I do recognize the certain, unidentifiable funk and mood he offers to the music and the band. (So please don't kill me Adam girls!  :D)
-I don't understand why Acrobat is such a good song. It's alright, but I don't care to see it live.
-I, too, am not a fan of the new Mercy lyrics. But, hey, they played it. YAY.
-The Lemon video scared me so much the first time I saw it I had to turn it off part-way through.

err....can't think of anymore at the moment.....

Even though I was a huge fan at the time, I didn't buy Zooropa when it came out (I waited until after I owned Pop)

I refuse to buy U218 (although if I can get the version with the Milan DVD for a bargain I might reconsider)

I have a burned copy of the 80's best of (but I bought the 90's deluxe edition in penance for that sin)

I have never seen "This Might Get Loud".  I intended to see it at the local artsy theater, but it was the same week as the concert and I just never got around to seeing it there or even renting it.

I really REALLY like All Because of You (for some on this forum that is the equivalent of hating Pop)

There I suppose I need to recite the lyrics to Mercy 20 times and sing 40, but I feel better already.

AMEN! Manchester. That's the right attitude, and not just about U2.  :)

Lmaoo . There's only 1 team in Manchester right?

My Grandad used to say that there were two teams in Manchester - Man. United, and Man. United Reserves. ;)

Manchester is a blue city.

Yes well your dad was right,  I see sense now.

The reason why manchester is your "blue city" is to represent the overall feeling of sadness and heartache that the dippers have caused to you supporters

At least it was Pop, Gravy. I had a chance to see ZooTV and let a man keep me from it.

Same thing happened with me on the Elevation tour.

A Newbie's confessions:

Bono's late 80's voice irritates me sometimes, I much prefer his voice Pop-onward (even if isn't as technically good).

I find The Joshua Tree and War to be overrated, although the former is still a classic.

I love Pop AND Atomic Bomb (a rarity it seems).

I think the 00's are their best decade and No Line is their best album period.

 :D  That's pretty funny.  But I remember my first exposure to U2 was Live Aid, my parents taped it and I watched the part where Bono jumps off the stage over and over again.  I was about 7.  It took me a few more years to actually get into U2 and realize what I had been watching! (Welcome to the forum, Legendary!)

I haven't posted a confession yet.  Here's one:  I think I've only listened to HTDAAB once all the way through.  Definitely an album I cherry pick from.

here's mine: I have only seen 2 of the U2 movies. Rose Bowl and Zoo TV. not to mention ive gone through periods where i will consciously choose other music over U2 to listen to. although that's not entirely my fault...Katy Perry is quite catchy.

I have The Unforgettable Fire album, but I cut Pride out of it. I don't like the song that much. So now it's a 9 song album. :D

Ditto.




I LOVE the album version, its the live version I don't care for very much!

This.

I really HATE the new I'll Go Crazy If I Dont Go Crazy Tonight remix.

Have you seen it live?
Yep, 10th of August 2010, Frankfurt.
Didn't worked for me.

I sleep with No Line on the Horizon playing on repeat all night. I like waking up in the middle of the night and it is there like an old friend.

The song or the album? You wouldn't get much sleep if it's the former!

The whole album. Cedars is so calming that when it recycles to NLOTH it doesn't wake me up. Usually if I wake up MOS or UC are the ones I hear.

I still love the song Mysterious Ways no matter how many times it's played on the radio or sung. It's the song that prompted me to buy Achtung Baby where I found even better songs and my love of U2 was cemented. (And this is coming from someone who's favorite album is October.)

I really never liked the song One. Love the lyrics, though, and quote them. But the song really doesn't groove with me.

My top 5 U2 Confessions:

5. I liked POPMart
4. Ali is superhot even at 50
3. I lied to my parents about paying face value for a ticket to the famous 'dream it all up again' show in Ireland. I actually paid a scalper a months salary!
2. I like the so-called bad U2 albums, including Passengers, Rattle and Hum and NLOTH. I even like Medium Rare.
1. I met bono in 1985, at age 12, and was so tongue tied I think he thought i was an idiot.

-Having watched PopMart: Live From Mexico City again, PopMart isn't as great as I remembered. I still like it but there are parts that don't flow well. And a lot of it rips off of ZooTV.
-In PopMart: Mexico City, at the beginning of HMTMKMKM when you see Bono in the bubble suit, he looks like a giant blueberry! It bothers me. And the way that shot was filmed, with those slow 90's cameras (don't know what they're called)....ugh.
-I appreciate Pop Edge's look more now than I did before. It still bothers me sometimes though.
-A lot of songs on Achtung Baby sound too similar (Acrobat and Love is Blindness, for example)
-The Unforgettable Fire is overrated. To me, it's an EP. 10 tracks is short enough, but when 2 of those songs are 2 minutes long, it's practically an 8 track album. And a couple of the songs are garbage (Indian Summer Sky)
-I've said it before and I'll say it again: New Mercy is bad. In fact, it's embarrassing.
-Edge's shoe shuffle thing during Mysterious Ways in ZooTV and PopMart is AMAZING!!

Please explain. I'm not trying to be nasty; I'm just really puzzled. Is it the chords, or the melodies...or...?

Two confessions of my own:

I don't really like rock music, most of the time. But U2 is cool. (plus a few others)

I've not listened to several U2 songs. I'm sure that makes me a brat, but I don't care.

No, now I want to know exactly which ones you don't like and WHY. Not saying you have to like them, but I'm interested in what makes our opinions so different!

*I think that second versions of U2 songs (e.g., "Mercy," "Winter") are almost always inferior. This includes live acoustic versions of originally-plugged songs (e.g., "Staring at the Sun," "Please," "Stuck in a Moment"). And the Best of 2000-2010 reimaginings of POP songs are mistakes.

*I love Passengers -- at least, I love several tracks off of it and find the rest of it daring enough (if not always likeable) to put it in my top tier of U2 (it's not an alternative project to me) albums.

*I disliked Popmart DC (which I saw in person live) overall (though "Miami" was brilliant), find Popmart Mexico City middling-to-mediocre, and can't understand why in the blazes they never released the superb Popmart Santiago.

-O' Brother Where Art Thou deserved to win the 2002 Album of the Year Grammy; I think it was the far superior album.

I've been in a bootleg mood too lately. I can't wait to listen to the Elevation Notre Dame show. I have Beautiful Day on m iPod from it. It's amazing! THE HEART IS A BLOOM!!!

RootedPhoneix, I guess I would have to say the melodies sound similar in quite a few songs. Maybe the chords in some of then too.

Chill, The songs on TUF that I'm not fond of would be Promenade, Indian Summer Sky, and Elvis Presley and America. They just seem lame to me. I used to think Wire was meh, but I like it much more now. And I actually do like 4th of July a little bit.

Chill, The songs on TUF that I'm not fond of would be Promenade, Indian Summer Sky, and Elvis Presley and America. They just seem lame to me. I used to think Wire was meh, but I like it much more now. And I actually do like 4th of July a little bit.
Okay, I can understand that.
I LOVE Promenade, though. :)

ME TOO!!!!!!

I dont like the ending of HMTMKMKM....

I don't like the ending of the Popmart version. It's a great attempt at a stunning ending, but it falls flat to me.

as hinted at in my first post.. Didn't like No Line On The Horizon, infact was so disappointed that I decided NOT to go to the 360 tour. Think the hype was just too much.. mixing tracks from the album up with other faves / albums has actually warmed me to it, so I'm a bit gutted.

While exercising and watching the PopMart DVD last night, I admit that I started fantasizing about french kissing Bono. I never do that because I respect the bounds of his marriage....  :o :o :o I guess exercise gets my hormones raging.... or something... (no, no, it couldnt be that BOno is incredibly tight in that video... AND, he's roughly my age now in there.)

Does this mean I'm on my way to writing fan fic??

(So glad I found this thread and can take a break from obsessively checking to see if there are any new rumors about 2011 Dublin dates!)

1. I love most U2 songs simply because they're U2 songs. And I respect the ones I don't love. But I can't stand Babyface. I skip it every time.
2. Zooropa's a great album, but I think Bono sounds like he had a cold while recording the entire thing.
3. I've been a U2 fan for 19 years, but when they played MLK and The Unforgettable Fire at the 2009 Charlottesville show, I was so unfamiliar with the TUF album, I didn't know the names of the songs. I've had TUF in heavy rotation ever since, though!

And yeah, Bono sounds like he had a cold when he recorded Zooropa, especialy on The First Time.

I started smoking after i saw Zoo Tv Live in Sidney on VHS back in 1994. Adam did it on the beggining of Stay, and Bono on the beggining of the show. Man, that was so cool.

Post by: Voxare on March 06, 2011, 08:40:44 PM
I was disappointed by my first U2 concert (I had waited over a year due to the rescheduling of the vertigo shows - I had built it up so much in my mind and I knew the setlist off by heart but I was in the expensive seats high up and all the toffs up there sat down the whole time and the whole time I was staring at the ellipse which was giong off and thinking 'I want to be in there' - the next night I was in the ellipse and definitely not disappointed!)

I never really took much notice of Pride - I never put it on playlists on my ipod or mix cds - and then I kept walking out of concerts with a refrainstuck in my head and it took me ages to figure out that it was actually Pride!

As awesome as it is hearing people's stories of U2 concerts they saw back in the 80s or 90s I always get a massive pang of jealousy because I missed out on all of that (to be fair I wasn't born for a lot of the concerts that I'm upset about missing but that doesn't make it any better!)

The first U2 cd I owned was actually a bootlegged copy of ATYCLB I stole from my brother - the version of Kite on it was actually  'High As A Kite' off the Salome tapes but I didn't know until years later when I was watching the Slane Castle DVD and Kite came on and I was wondering what that new song was!

Despite the fact that U2 is and always will be my favorite band, I get annoyed when U2 makes a song that sounds too much like a previous release and then still call it brand new.  For example, I think that "SYCMIOYO" is a masterpiece of a song but it sounds way too close for comfort to the song "Bad."  It almost seems like they took the notes from "Bad" and just slowed it down a bit.

GAH. I am going to have to buy this stuff and study it closely so that if I ever get hugged/pulled on stage by Bono I can correctly identify the smells for all the Bonogirls when I retell the story. ;)

There was one from Bvlgari that I tried (I think it was Black--but I can't remember) that made me want to lick the bottle it was so yummy.  I don't usually react that way to just cologne.  If Bono wore that and I ever ran into him, I don't think I'd be able to control myself.   ;)

I have several

1. I actually LIKE the passengers album
2. I think HTDAAB is their best record
3. I know live albums are 'a thing of the past' but I wish they would release a greatest hits live album, cheesy though it is
4. I think POP is their best tour, not 360 or Zoo TV (though I hate the album)
5. I DESPISE IGCIIDGCT as a Rock song, but i LOVE the dance version.
6. This one's for my brother who was 9 when Rattle and Hum came out. He thought the new U2 Album would be called "The Joshua 4"

People know I like the band, but outside of my family and a few close friends (and everyone here), they have no idea just how much I love the band.

I totally agree with all these posts. U2 are the first thought when I wake up in the morning, they are always in my mind all the day, EVERY thing reminds me of them and I'm definitely a Bonoholic girl. There is no cure to my disease, there is no doctor that can cure it. This beautiful handsome man changed my life, he teaches me the road to take when I'm confused, the man I think when I'm happy, sad, worried, when I go to work and when I go to bed. He is the man I love, He is my religion, He is my God.  I know I'm a hopeless case.

Apart from the first three songs, which remain 3 of the greatest in rock n roll - ever, I find the rest of the Joshua Tree is a fairly ordinary U2 album (zzzzzz). Well, maybe the 5th and 9th tracks are also quite fine. Seriously, take away the first three songs and one has a fairly mediocre (and short) U2 album.

Quite true, I would also say add the 7th. All the good songs on that album are the odd number ones. I mean, the exceptional ones.
I don't particularly care for ISHFWILF though... it doesn't, I don't know, EXCITE.

I find The Joshua Tree to be their most complete piece of work. I think all songs are as good as the sum of it's parts. Sure you have some amazing songs, but I really like hearing the loose laidback Trip through your wires, the killer vocals of Red Hill Mining Town and the wild emotive tracks Bullet the blue sky and Exit. The Joshua Tree's songs all fit so well together so elaborately. It was a great experiment and that's why I think it stands in such great stead today, it has great longevity.

I like the song Trip Through Her Wires but not in context of the Joshua Tree. I feel like it breaks up the smooth flow of that record and was unnecessary.  Should have been a one off or b-side.

I doubt you'd think that way if the first three songs weren't on it. I'm sure you'd think it rated low among U2 albums without them.

I agree to some point.

as a whole album, it doesn't have that much flow, and Red Light and Surrender are easily 2 of their worst songs ever.  :P

but on the other hand, it has Sunday Bloody Sunday/Seconds/New Year's Day as a bombshell opener, as well as underrated gems Like a Song and The Refugee.

Here's another confession:

I don't own WAIA (exept for having the tracks on TUF bonus CD)

same here!  :D

or Passengers, except Miss Sarajevo. but I've heard it was wildly boring and pretentious, so I haven't bothered. I've gotta save up my iTunes cash for Born This Way!  ;D

I don't know where to start: the fact that you don't own OS1 (which I think you'll like), the fact that you are saving up for Gaga's new album, or that you buy albums on iTunes. And you mistyped it. It's MISS sarajevo.

Not sure if this is a confession... I have never actually understood PopMart, I don't get why it was so cool. I see the coolness but do not comprehend it. I mean, I love the album Pop, but I just don't GET the tour.

You dont have to get it. You just have to look at the bubblepants. :)

Seriously, though, it was just as much of a reflection of the late 1990's as AB was a reflection of the early 1990's. It's hard to explain. You had to be there (as an adult) maybe.

I don't know, because I get the Zoo TV Tour just fine. Maybe it was the fact that the first experience of Pop that I had was when I was really familiar with 80's U2.. and the first 90's U2 that I saw was PopMart, and it just put me off. :( But now I completely understand and worship Zoo TV, just not PopMart.

sigh... ::)

1) I've been too lazy to buy Passengers, and about 5 other people said they don't have it either. 
2) not buying the newest Lady Gaga album is like living in the 60s and not buying the newest Beatles album, or the 80s with Michael Jackson. she isn't a part of the culture, SHE IS THE CULTURE.  ;)
3) Where else would I buy music?
4) and I misspell things all the time.  ::)

I adore this version actually. Partly because Mary J Blige's voice is AMAZING with that song. I end up singing it her way whenever I do sing it.

I thought Rattle and Hum and the whole country-twangy music thing was okay, but it was probably their worst period. they looked like idiots trying to be American. although again, the movie was good, the music was mostly good.

in fact, the album isn't even that twangy-ish, so I don't see why they felt the need to go cowboy. didn't they know? as they said from Toy Story: "Up went Sputnik, and nobody wanted the cowboys anymore."  ;)

And Dferry - ditto on Rhianna. I CANNOT stand her voice or her looks (sorry MG  :D). I'm even debating not buying this month's Vogue because Rhianna is on the cover (and I buy Vogue every month faithfully!) That's how much I do not like her.

What the band were trying to do in that period was to "mock" and make ridicule of the world and it's materialistic and consumerism. Which explains the "over the top" everything on the tour.

Don't worry, even a good handful of critics had no idea what the tour really meant. When you think about it in that context though, the whole idea of the tour is brilliant.

I'm not sure I can explain as such (though am sure someone else can), but personally I have never thought that Discotheque was intended to be taken particularly seriously. It feels to me as if it's poking fun at the whole disco/dance thing. Maybe the irony comes from people thinking it was serious? Or I may have completely misunderstood.

I'm not sure I can explain as such (though am sure someone else can), but personally I have never thought that Discotheque was intended to be taken particularly seriously. It feels to me as if it's poking fun at the whole disco/dance thing. Maybe the irony comes from people thinking it was serious? Or I may have completely misunderstood.

Yes. And it pokes fun at romantic love. Or the implication that you're looking for something overtly special in a romantic relationship.

Not sure if this is a confession... I have never actually understood PopMart, I don't get why it was so cool. I see the coolness but do not comprehend it. I mean, I love the album Pop, but I just don't GET the tour.

What the band were trying to do in that period was to "mock" and make ridicule of the world and it's materialistic and consumerism. Which explains the "over the top" everything on the tour.

Don't worry, even a good handful of critics had no idea what the tour really meant. When you think about it in that context though, the whole idea of the tour is brilliant.

Nobody understood the irony of the song Discotheque either.

.........?

I've just re-read the lyrics and I don't know how I managed to miss that before, seems obvious when you point it out.

Just can't get enough of that lovey-dovey stuff :) the upbeat sound seems contradictory to the message. But the beauty--anD irony to me--is that the song sounds like just some hollow pop trash music. When it's really deeper than that to me. It seems to undermine the culture of frivelous club music.

And to go back to the confessional aspect of this thread, mine are:

- I have only just realised that the single version of a song may well be a different version to the album version. I have only discovered this today. I knew about remixes but didn't know that the single release itself might not be the same as the album track. My excuse is, I haven't bought a single for many years.

- As a result of the above, I have only just found out that the B sides of singles may well be different versions of other songs, or even live versions. I'm currently downloading Electrical Storm for the live version of Bad/40/Streets on it

- I have only just found out that the audio of the Live in Paris DVD is available as an mp3 download from amazon.

I think you're right about the irony. It does do a great job of sounding like hollow pop trash, but there is much more to it than that.

Funny that there's a conversation going on in this thread all about the irony of Pop(Mart) and all, seeing as I never understood the irony, not even with Zoo TV. In fact, I'm beginning to see 90's U2 as the normal U2 and everything else as abnormal.
This is not good...
I'm sure if I really give it the deep thought my brain is capable of, I'll understand.

I don't think anyone knows why Adam wasn't in it. There were two segments of Secrets. I know this line was from one of the nights and isn't on the Youtube video:

I also love Stand Up Comedy. It has just been playing on my ipod and I was sitting here thinking - 'this is awesome - why have I never realised that before!'

There are seemingly more and more people that are jumping on the bandwagon of Stand Up Comedy  :D

I think me and MarsGirl started this by endlessly chanting our love for the song so now everyone loves it  ;)

It's a good thing you confessed because you've got some SERIOUS penance to do for those statements. Your penance is listening to R&H and watching the DVD until you come to your senses.

I like the Pop album, remixed singles and Pop remixes in general, but I really hated the whole Popmart thing. I hated the KMart thing, Edges porn stache, the muscle graphic shirts, the lemon/arches of the stage, etc.

Zooropa is my least favorite album, I like Pop and October more. I also love AB and NLOTH.

Thanks! I think.  8)

I do love October, the rawness and urgent, "thrown together quickly" sound it kind of has.

I don't hate Zooropa, I love all of the U2's albums in some way, but when listen to it, it pretty much goes like this....

Start Zooropa, fast forward past the noise stuff to when the song really starts, listen to Zooropa (love it, btw), skip to Stay, skip to The Wanderer (I like Johnny Cash). Then it's over. I don't really like the rest and I can't say that I do that with any other u2 album.

I am really looking forward to hearing Zooropa and Stay when I see the boys @ East Rutherford on 7/20!

An ex-girlfriend of mine at university actually got me a framed and authenticated full band photo signed by all four members for my birthday one time (her uncle worked for some autograph company). However, this was shortly before we started seeing each other. I was kinda like, "Oh. You probably like me then."  ;)

Confession: Except for one or two songs, I hate Pop.  Hate it.  Hate it, hate it, hate.  That was pretty much black hole for me in my U2 fandom.  I was one of the people who just didn't like, or accept, the direction they were going.  I didn't recognize the band I loved anymore. And it wasn't because I couldn't accept them changing...I'd been a fan since War and loved AB from the start.  I love NLOTH.  I could take or leave Zooropa.  But Pop...it felt like a betrayal in a way.

And no, I don't appreciate it any more today. I know what they were trying to do, and I respect it, but the final product was pretty mediocre at best (with, again, a couple of exceptions).

Even though I like Pop a lot (one of my favorites) it's overrated by die hard fans. If the band loved it a lot and always played the songs live, we would probably hate it. And it is kind of just, as the title says, a pop album, and pop music sucks.

Now see, Rattle & Hum I love.  It's one of my favorites.  I played that album to death when it came out.  Saw the movie in a midnight show and "Streets" brought the house down.  Of the studio songs, only "Desire" hasn't held up for me...but so many others are just classics.  And the pure Americana of the whole thing just made the switch to AB a few years later (which I also love) all the more dramatic.

Only Pop (and to a lesser extent, HTDAAB), for me, remains a black hole my love for this band.

I hate Rattle and Hum.

the idea of it more so than the music.

why would you want to be American so badly? all the good stuff is in Europe!  ::)

Now see, Rattle & Hum I love.  It's one of my favorites.  I played that album to death when it came out.  Saw the movie in a midnight show and "Streets" brought the house down.  Of the studio songs, only "Desire" hasn't held up for me...but so many others are just classics.  And the pure Americana of the whole thing just made the switch to AB a few years later (which I also love) all the more dramatic.

Only Pop (and to a lesser extent, HTDAAB), for me, remains a black hole my love for this band.

but see, Pop was experimental and acutally danceable! and a huge influence for the more synth-leaning pop today, while I'm pretty sure blues hasn't made a comeback yet. (and I like Desire...yikes...) :D

I want to marry a hardcore U2 fan

Me too.

Me three. This doesn't seem like a "confessional" type of thing. It seems obvious.  ;D

Me four.   ;D  Yeah, it does seem obvious, but for whatever reason, I keep dating guys that hate U2.   ???

You should immediately disqualify anyone who hates U2 as dating material. :)

Agreed.

I wish I could recall the title of the thread. . . .I will have to think on it. Basically most of us agreed that it was easier to be involved with someone who shared your love of U2. I did once have a boyfriend and the only thing we ever, ever argued over was my Bono crush. He would actually get jealous to the point where he refused to attend a u2 show with me.

My confession: The one thing that gets my goat about being a u2 fan is how other u2 fans will complain about the set list. Especially when the majority of the ones that do complain have gone to 20+ shows or something for the most recent tour.

It's just hilarious to see my mom (who has gone to one u2 show) talk about how mind blowing the show she went to is while the hardcore fans are all jaded and poo-pooing the lack of change from the previous show. I understand being able to criticize your favourite band but I reckon I don't want to reach a point in my fan-hood where I spend thousands of dollars just to look unimpressed at a show.

I agree. It's one thing to say "Why haven't they played X since the Lovetown tour", but to criticize a tour because they aren't mixing up the set list during that tour seems kind of, well, obsessive to me.  90% of the people who go to those shows don't follow the set list from night to night, it's all new and surprising to them, and for the most part they love it.  That's who U2 is playing to primarily.  Hell, I've seen them or every tour since the mid-80's and am a huge fan, and even I don't follow the set lists.

That's because Edge couldn't play guitar in those days. Hell, none of them could play.  They had about three chords (and the truth, of course).

They are of course markedly better now, but aside from Edge's unique guitar style, I don't think anyone in U2 is really known for being a great musician...none of them individually are among the best at what they do...they are definitely an example of being greater than the sum of their parts.

When I first got into U2, Pop was the last album of theirs that I bought. (This was in 1998, before anything else was out.)

Once I had it, I was kinda puzzled as to why I'd waited. Yet, I was sort of glad too, because I'd matured some and was actually able to understand more of what was going on. I still didn't like it much.

Now, 12+ years later, I really get a lot out of it. It is a really dark album, so sometimes I still don't like listening to it. It communicates well, I think, even if I don't always like what it tells me.

My confessions are of a slightly different nature.

1. The last time I met Bono I was covered in paint. it was 1989 and he was outside Windmill Lane surrounded by girls and one of them asked me to take a photo. I was working in the sign factory next door covered in screen-ink and a painters outfit from head to toe. Grrrr!

2. I missed the "Ringing in the new decade" concert at the point depot, december 31st 1989, because I only had 37.50 in my hands and the scalper wanted 50 quid. (I did see the "go away and dream it all up again" show two days earlier)

3. I was not aware that U2 had released an album called "Passengers" until 2000!

4. The first time I met Bono I was a dorky 11 year old leaning over the rails of my grandmothers backyard on North Frederick Street, Dublin, and I didn't know what to say to him. Ugh! My 9 year old sister got his autograph. He said to her; "What is this, the neighbors back yard", to which I came up with the great response: "Yeah!" Grrrrr!

A thread for confessing your U2 sins.


I have never seen the 'U2: Live At Red Rocks - Under A Blood Red Sky' video in my life. :-[

I know it's shameful. :-[

My confessions are of a slightly different nature.

1. The last time I met Bono I was covered in paint. it was 1989 and he was outside Windmill Lane surrounded by girls and one of them asked me to take a photo. I was working in the sign factory next door covered in screen-ink and a painters outfit from head to toe. Grrrr!

2. I missed the "Ringing in the new decade" concert at the point depot, december 31st 1989, because I only had 37.50 in my hands and the scalper wanted 50 quid. (I did see the "go away and dream it all up again" show two days earlier)

3. I was not aware that U2 had released an album called "Passengers" until 2000!

4. The first time I met Bono I was a dorky 11 year old leaning over the rails of my grandmothers backyard on North Frederick Street, Dublin, and I didn't know what to say to him. Ugh! My 9 year old sister got his autograph. He said to her; "What is this, the neighbors back yard", to which I came up with the great response: "Yeah!" Grrrrr!




Well, at least you MET Bono!

A couple months after I discovered U2, I discovered Radiohead and thought they were better than U2 for at least six months. Radiohead's a bloody good band, but.... hehe I've come a long way

I go to U2 concerts to see Adam close to 100% of the time, instead of the less than 25% he's shown on DVDs.

And if Adam was still his Elevation or Pop self, I wouldn't have the drive to go to a U2 live show.

This coming from someone who did 4 shows this past summer, and spent a BOMB travelling to said shows. All for Adam's side!

To be honest, I don't really care about Adam or Larry. Ok, that's a bit harsh. But Bono and Edge completely rock my world in every way, while Adam and Larry wouldn't even be in my top 50 favorite musicians. I make up for it though by loving Edge and Bono twice as much though, so it's all cool.

Hey Mods, is there any way to unsuscribe from a thread? I know this is confessionals, so people should talk freely. but it's kinda saddening. U2 = 4 of them = an idea, a big and real idea.

Anyway, I'll just say that if U2 is truly headed for artistic reinvention (= musical turmoil and tension), Adam will be the least cause of the problem when things get heated in the studio. In fact, he might even be the gel that holds the band together

I'm kinda the opposite.  I've found myself listening to Mysterious Ways and TTTYAATW over and over, and Ultraviolet by The Killers already has over 50 plays for me.

My confession:  I might like The Killers' cover of Ultraviolet as much as I do U2's version

I like his screaming. It's something that could be really obnoxious if anyone else but he were doing it; ultimately, though, it adds to the scream of his guitar and thus the whole song.

Bono probably still has to revise them before and during every tour and he wrote them.  Indeed, he probably still reads them on a monitor during a show.

I was in London, held a copy of Q in my hands, even though the price was only four-pounds-something - I did not buy it. I've read the article online, seen the pics online and all the songs (I don't even like covers) are available for listening online too.

Post by: GardenTart on November 04, 2011, 10:34:36 PM
TD - you know I love you but no, POE is not penance (you silly boy). While listening to ATYCLB for five hours is indeed punishment, for an October sin you must do October penance.
So you have to listen to October on repeat until you can appreciate it.
Don't look at it as penance - look at it as a positive learning experience.

In fact, my confession is that I love every second of ATYCLB.  To many forum members, I know this is a shameful confession.   ::) I grew up with U2, but ATYCLB was the soundtrack of my teenage years.  Elevation made me drive faster, the fade out at the end of Walk On made me test my speakers at full volume, Grace brought me down after the euphoric highs and crushing lows of volleyball and softball games.  I also really love Pop, but I guess that's not for the confessional thread.  ;)

Mine is a long one:

I was at glastonbury (I go every year and would recommend it to any music fan in the world. it is the most friendly place and nothing is like it in the world. You have to go to understand the magic of it. No other festival compares. anyway....)

I was at glastonbury and my friends are nowhere near like the U2 nut I am so i decided to hang back a bit with them.maybe 50, 60 metres away. But got too excited and decided to go up to the front, or try to. On the way One kicked in (5th song) and this girl grabbed me as I tried to go past and flirtily said "Oh suppose you're going back to your girlfriend huh?" I just laughed and thought nothing of it. Couldn't get near the front as it was packed so decided to turn back and happened to bump into the same random girl (btw, she way gorgeous for the record  ;) ) and she said "oh so NOW you're going back to your girlfriend?" and I said I didn't have a girlfriend and she grabbed me and said "Oh come here then!!!" and started kissing me saying I love this song!!!

It was the most sureal moment but we were there kissing most of the way through the song. Now I don't think she realised that One isn't a love song but who was I to complain, she was genuinelly one of the prettiest girls i've ever seen but after a while we stopped and I said I have to go back to my friends and she said come back here and find me later. Watched the rest of the gig and tried to find her but never saw her again. Lost in the crowd

It was a really cute, perfect moment and because I never saw her again its stuck with me and just lost in time. Not really a confession I know but this is probably the closest i'll get to a U2 church  ;D

On a side note, I dislike the album October (love the song) and wish bono would shut up at a concert sometimes and just sing

I no longer own any U2 records.  Not one of the nearly 40 survived the great "CD Purge of 2010."

The only bit of U2 I still own is my shopping-cart-orbiting-a-lemon shirt from 1997.

Well, yeah. They don't let you keep any of that stuff once you check into the wackhouse.

Excuse me?

I realized recently that I don't know many end-of-record songs.  For most of the albums, I'm great with the first half-dozen songs: I've got the lyrics, I can make the guitar noises, I can air drum with Larry, etc.  But for some reason, there's only a handful of late in the album songs that I feel close to.

What is the wackhouse?  Seriously, I don't know.  Not making fun or anything like that.  Wackhouse may be called something different in my country.

I confess that I sometimes feel like yanking Bono away from all these politicians he's been taking pictures with...just because it feels like pandering at this point to me.

I'm cool with Yahweh.  I'm actually okay on the end of Bomb songs because that's where Original of the Species is, and I love it even though it's cheesy.  ;D  But don't ask me to sing along with Shadows and Tall Trees or Exit or anything beyond Two Hearts (except 40...I can handle that) on War.  I think the source of my problem is that I listen to albums almost exclusively while running, and I never run for more than 40 minutes.

OOTS is cheesy by U2's high standards, but it's a damn beautiful melody. If marketed well on the radio, I always believed, it could have been a hit across all demographics. The 40+ parents, and even the teeny-boppers. Alas... :-\

My mom and dad got me into U2 back when I was a kid, but they never "made the jump" to the Achtung Baby era (and beyond).  So the last time I visited my parents (6 months ago), I put all the U2 albums on my mom's iPod.  She told me to go ahead and do it because, of course, she hadn't listened to U2 in years.  Today she confessed that she almost always skips their songs.  :'(  So my confession is that I'd already filtered out songs that I thought she wouldn't tolerate so we could both like U2 together again...yes, I set her up with the most radio-friendly, inoffensive U2 tunes...and still she can't get into it! 

(I would consider myself a total failure as a fan-recruiter, except that my husband made the sound of the guitar riff from the chorus of UTEOTW when I mentioned that song the other day...small victories).

New fans, you have an excuse because there is a TON of stuff out there to catch up on...but get to work!  You MUST watch Red Rocks AND Popmart (and listen to Zooropa!)

If you've never seen Zoo TV, please don't tell me, because my heart will shatter into a thousand Trabant shaped pieces and I may die. I'd like it to say "Watch More Zoo TV" on my headstone.

Old fans (say...Vertigo Tour and older) who have not seen any of these at least once...I disown you!

My confessions :

*I think Achtung Baby and everything surrounding it (the art, the tour(s), the whole vibe of it all...) is the greatest piece of art U2 has ever released. I agree that The Joshua Tree was also brilliant but it's gotten to the point where I can't stand to see or hear anything from that era, including hearing WOWY (even the R&H version!) or seeing Bono's gorgeous long hair. I know, it's tragic. Working on it.

*I cringe when non U2 fans try to be nice by telling me they've heard Elevation, Get On Your Boots or The Sweetest Thing. It's worse when they tell me they actually like them because I find them hard to defend! -- I'm glad there's been enough time that most people have forgotten about Discotheque! (Which I love, but cringe at the thought U2 might be represented by it!)

*I was glad when the 360 Tour was over because I was so disappointed by it, even after three shows on different legs. - I just wanted U2 to hurry up and get back into the studio to make something different! (Still wishing they'd hurry up, lol.)

Squee! I wish I could be there when you see it for the first time!- I understand, especially about the money bit (gosh, do I!) and also about watching it in pieces on Youtube will not be the same is not the same as watching on a TV with good sound. This one deserves that kind of respect. (Haha, can you tell I am an worshiper of the Zoo?)

 If anything, you must see this :

I've been holding onto this one for about a week...

I could never understand what Bono was saying at the end of "All I Want is You" when he jumbles the lyrics quickly and draws out the last syllable he sings.  Bongalese, I assumed.  I mean, geeze, he does that at the end of plenty of songs, right?

So it turns out that when listening to both Bad and AIWIY on U22, I finally figured out that he was just singing the same words he'd said over and over in the song...

"All I want is you."  Only to me it always sounded like, "Imablahblahblahblueeeeeee."

Confession tag team: I did shortchange the book club reading one week, but what's worse is that I don't find the book that interesting.  It's cool to hear Bono's stories because I definitely recognize his voice in there, but it hasn't been a page-turner for me.

My connie (lol): White As Snow was the very last song on NLOTH I learnt to appreciate, the intro that sounded like piercing glass doll eyes in an antique show scared me/turned me off it. Then for a period of time, I listened to it intensively. Now I can fully appreciate WAS.

The real connie is that: I don't like Adam's bassline on White As Snow. It sounds very carnival, very roundabout and frivolous. I think it doesn't match the soulful and heavy mode created by Bono (and Edge's lovely harmonizing vocals)

It's traditional.  And although I know U2 wrote Miami, I'm not sure about the rest.

It's the traditional Christmas song Oh Come Oh Come Emmanuel. Which is a beautiful song, and I loved that U2 stole the melody. I always thought the song sounded like an old traditional folk song of some sort.

Post by: skelter on June 29, 2012, 04:41:38 PM
Thanks for the replies, all. In the time I posted that till now, I was doing some background research on White As Snow. Wow, heart-wrenching and definitely confirms why U2 are so above radio tune-churners. To think the breaking china sound at the start is meant to be the aftermath of a bomb. It lasts the length of time it takes a soldier to die on the roadside from a bomb. That's deep. And here I was thinking the song was based loosely on Bono and his childhood with his brother. U2  :'(

My folks think U2 is noisy punk rock. I should introduce this song to them. I've heard O Come O Come Emmanuel at Christmas time and loved it, but never heard the connection for myself

I cringe whenever I listen to Bono pronoucing "I feel like trash, you make me feel CREAN" in the album version of Ultraviolet.

Thank god we have bootlegs!

oh.

i've always heard "clean'

serious? hmm, when I listen to it, Bono says Crean. Interesting though.... :o

I cringe too!  I feel embarrassed for Bono - like he can't say "clean" correctly.   :-[  When I first bought the album, my little sister never heard CREAN and heard CLEAN instead.  That drove me crazy, too.

Shall we start a CREAN vs. CLEAN Forum Topic?  LOLZ jk ::)

i've always heard "clean'

serious? hmm, when I listen to it, Bono says Crean. Interesting though.... :o

I cringe too!  I feel embarrassed for Bono - like he can't say "clean" correctly.   :-[  When I first bought the album, my little sister never heard CREAN and heard CLEAN instead.  That drove me crazy, too.

Shall we start a CREAN vs. CLEAN Forum Topic?  LOLZ jk ::)

In Beautiful Day I could never tell he was saying 'see the tuna fish'

I refuse to throw away the terribly scratched and "skippy" copies of TJT and Pop that I keep in my old CD wallet.  >:(  Mine is a confession of illogical fandom, because I own TJT re-issue and have had a new copy of Pop on my Amazon wish list for quite some time (it's just a click away, but I'm trying to show some restraint).  I can probably part with that JT copy, but that Pop was the first CD I ever bought (on release day!) so that one's going nowhere!

Stateless is gorgeous. I think we (you)'ve waited long enough -- over a year!-- since the last formal activity from the band, so go ahead. The title,lyrics and melody is for when you are feeling very fluid and transient (aka: stateless)

Tonight at a wedding with fairly few dancing guests, I requested anything by U2. I thought the deejay would slow it down with With or Without You, or maybe close out his set with One (that's what we did at our wedding).  Instead, he busted out Beautiful Day when almost all the other dancers were outside for a cigar break.  I couldn't bear to let U2 play to an empty floor, even though BD is less than danceable...so I majorly ugly-danced in front of all the non-dancing, judgmental sitting guests.   8) Someone had to make U2 look relevant, I guess.

I never really liked October and TUF before, but now they're starting to grow on me  ;)

TUF is one of my favorites. October's good but always seems a bit unfinished to me, though it has been growing on me also.

I confess to agreeing with the Edge, that One is a horrible choice for a wedding song. "We hurt each other then we do it again","I can't be holding on to what you've got/When all you've got is hurt" and "Will it make it easier on you, now you got someone to blame?" don't make for a great wedding song, at all. Now AIWIY i'd like to play at my wedding.

I work as part of a banquet staff for a golf club that hosts weddings and I've heard that used twice. Best U2 song for a wedding I think.

I'd seen that quote before the decision, but I have to go a bit with TD here and say I find One to be refreshingly honest when used as a love song.  If you don't have a tough road on the way to marriage, you're not going to be prepared for this trials when you face them as a wedded pair.  The bitterness/cynicism is ultimately overridden by the power of togetherness, n'est-ce pas?  ;)

Really, most U2 love songs are not all that fit for a wedding... They all have kind of a darker shade of gray side of them. They are totally honest love songs, though. But I dont think things that you would want to think about on your wedding day.

That said, I still want to use AIWIY for our first dance. My future hubby is not convinced. :(

I think In A Little While is a straight love song from U2. That might be a good wedding song. But I think Bono said once that "U2 are the world's worst wedding band" and I think I agree... for the most part.

You just need a new U2 album. Whenever a new album comes out by a band I like I listen to their older stuff and get really into them again so I can be hyped for the release.
