Mercy - Update - News on "Mercy" 03/09

We need this thread, now more than ever.

Let's cheer for the glory of this towering achievement, and weep at its failure to see the light of day officially.

At least for now, still the best recorded work this decade by the band.



BURN, HATERS.

Reading that "A Beautiful Night In San Jose" post again, I still can't reconcile the notion that Bono told a fan to "watch out" for a certain song, which he claims is one of his favorites, with the fact that it's still M.I.A.

And what really pisses me off is that NO ONE in this community has bothered to ask him about the status of the song in the last 4 years and report back. Not during the whole last tour? What the fuck?

I didn't have the luxury of meeting the band last time around, but I can tell you that's the first thing that would have come out of my mouth upon meeting any of these guys (save for Larry; I'd probably say "Please don't hurt me" first).

So I say it again, anyone who likes this song and is lucky enough to meet them, before you blurt out a bunch of OMG!! effusive praise, ask a strategic question that will hopefully quell some of this curiosity.

And I will do so if I get the chance.

If anyone went up to Bono these days and said "Where's Mercy," he'd probably just lay his hands on your head and say "Bless you, my child."

And you would then weep from the beauty and grace of that moment.

I listened to Mercy for the first time a couple days ago. Probably for the last time too.

Does anyone remember the thread where I threatened to leak it to the radio stations unless U2 agreed to give it a release?

That was fun.

And I agree that this is one of U2's best songs from the last 10 years. I don't understand the hate against it. I think it's epic. And it needs to come out.

And trust me, Lazurus, if I ever meet Bono again, I am going to be sure to ask him where the f*** is Mercy!
I am actually surprised more people haven't asked him this yet. I think once someone asked Edge but I have never heard of anyone asking Bono.

Not being combative, but, please explain to me why it needs to come out....

I mean, we all have it already. If it's released, will that just mean that it was polished up, etc, so it will sound better? Or, do you want the masses to be able to hear it, too?

I like the song very much, by the way.

We don't have it in the best possible sound quality. The recording that is out there is a bit rough, especially at the very beginning. It would be nice to hear this in all its sonic glory.

That's the primary reason, for me anyway.

Makes sense, thanks.

There's a lot of love for it, too. The love for it probably inspired some of the hate.
