Song I thought was U2 at first

I remember when i first heard Is It Any Wonder by Keane I thought it was U2 until I really listened closely to the voice and realised it wasnt Bono.I was kind of dissapointed actually I was hoping it would be a new single for a new album of theirs,but it wasnt.If you listen to the effect on the beginning of Mercy it kind of sounds like the beginning effect on Is It Any Wonder too.Too bad Vida La Vida wasnt a U2 song also.

I've pointed this out before, but if you listen closely to Is It Any Wonder, you will hear effects straight of from EBTTRT.

"All I Want" - Thomas Jefferson's Aeroplane

Seriously. I still think it's U2 sometimes. It's ridiculous. It's not just the singer's voice. But the type of guitar playing and the way the song explodes in the chorus.

"I kissed a girl" by katy perry. i could have sworn when I heard that beat it was Larry Mullen pounding the drums away, and thought Bono may have been doing a slightly different double vocal take. i was disappointed to hear it wasn't the new track from no line on the horizon.

a couple

under a milky way - by australian band the church

a more recent song that sounds a lot like u2 - sweet disposition by the temper trap, it thrives on the guitar echoey effects

"Move to Memphis" by A-ha. Came out in '92 and sounded nothing like A-ha but very much Achtung Baby.

"See the Lights" from Simple Minds also tricked me the first time I heard that on the radio

"Burst Wide Open" by Enation. When heard from another room, sounds very U2

Really?

The only song of his that I think sounds like U2 is 'So Alive'... even he admits that.

I do hear some shades of Zoo Station in Is It Any Wonder...the former being much more well executed.

I am perfectly ok with Viva La Vida not being a U2 song! It has kind of, emphasize kind of, grown on me, but its certainly a poor attempt at Unforgettable Fire ambience, which Martin said they were going for.

Is it any wonder threw me at first, as did shadow of the day by Linkin Park. That is a clear take off of WOWY.

It sounds like a Elevation-ish song to me.
