My husband likes it. He is not a superfanatical U2 fan. He likes some of their songs but he would have a hard time even telling you what their titles are. (He's sort of like oh that one that goes "walk on by... or something... is pretty good".)

I played it for him once and he said it was a good song. Anyways... not sure if that means anything.

Oh I'm thrilled.

Nice to know Bono's not completely forgotten Passengers, or the faecal matter thereof.

But apparently Bono thinks EAA is the best song on Passengers

Would prefer Let's Go Native live, but Elvis Ate America is a cool moment in U2 history.

If Bruce can go through puberty twice, then so can Bono.

Oh. Gross. Isn't the sort of the thing you'd write and just not show to anyone, ever?

Actually, I read once that the tape was slightly sped up, and you know what that does to sound...

It's great that Bono choses to read the extended version of a song that is the all time favourite of every fan on this forum.
