The Music and Lyrics / Quick Question - Zooropa Voices
« Last post by Maineroadfan on August 13, 2019, 11:08:38 PM »
Hey all, I've just been listening to Zooropa (and the live version from Baltimore 2009) and I was trying to make out the voices in the background of the opening of the song. I'm aware that somebody says the phrases "What Do You Want" and "What Are You Afraid Of" in English and French, but in the live version, there's a third language that doesn't appear to be on the record. It sounds vaguely Spanish/Italian, and I was wondering if anyone knows what's being said. Additionally, there's a sample of someone saying what appears to be "Ultra Detergent" in the background (of the live version, but I swear I heard it on ZOOTV as well.) Does anyone know where that sample comes from? Any background info would be much appreciated.

Yeah, it is one of the fundamental problems with live U2: they could play new, strong material to convince the audience to move forward with them, but instead they let the audience decide, and the audience always move towards the safe middle.

I have no real interest in the innocence and experience albums so can take or leave that although perhaps they sound good live so wont complain if they play a couple.  I hope they play New Years day, Wild horses, the Fly maybe even Shes a Mystery to me!  Really I will enjoy whatever they play as I have never seen them live so fully intend to enjoy the whole experience!
How wonderful you’re finally going to see them!

If I am down under or in Asia and have waited years for the best live band ever, I would be deeply disappointed if they added in ANY Experience / Innocent songs. Having seen all three recent North America Tours, it was those new songs that sent people (other than die hard in this forum) running to the bathroom. I am all about the classics! Bring on the BOY 40 year tour!

I am with you on this one and I am going to an Aussie show and first ever for me!  I didn't even know Innocence and Experience existed until I found Innocence lurking to be downloaded in iTunes a long time after it had been waiting there.

General U2 Discussion / Thoughts on early records.
« Last post by Kevplunkett on August 10, 2019, 11:14:25 AM »
Hello from a new member, Kevplunkett. (Thank you for reading.) As I know this webpage has been in existence for many years and I am a relatively old person (53-years-old) who discovered U2 when 'War' first came out my comments will likely bore both the young people reading as well as those who have read similar thoughts and discussions as mine before so please let me apologize in advance. :) I just was interested in discussing the more personal and heartfelt aspects of the music of U2 from their first four albums, from 'Boy' to 'The Unforgettable Fire' as well as the influence of their life in Dublin and Ireland on their music and lyrics. (One interesting note is that the American Irish culture and history journal 'The New Hibernia Review' has three articles on U2 in their latest Spring issue.) I know that there is not much direct or very clear Irish element within the music of these records and that the lyrics do not very often feature elements of Dublin or North Dublin but I really love those moments in the music that do at least for me conjure their actual lives and experience including the songs of 'Boy' and 'October' and 'The Unforgettable Fire.' I also love the video of 'Gloria' which features the dock area of Dublin, The video for the Clannad song 'In a Lifetime' (1985) which Bono sings on and the words and tone of 'A Sort of Homecoming' which seems to me to be influenced at least in part of the experience of Irish history and its difficulties and even harshness of life, as well. Just wanted to add a few thoughts, and thank you very much for reading and have a fine and peaceful day.
