"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."

I fixed it

Sigh, they're really gonna play Get Out Of Your Own Way...I expected it, but I really wanted Summer of Love.

Yeah, there're a number of tracks that I'd place above GOOYOW for single potential. And while I understand that fan favorite songs don't often coincide with what will work best for streaming/ radio, but even by that metric the song is pretty low on the SoE totem pole. Red Flag Day? Lights of Home? Summer of Love? LIBTAIIW? It's just one of the least interesting songs on the album (IMO, of course), and will most likely be met with muted reception and aid in shaping public perception of the record as just a collection of poppy, tired, U2-by-numbers material. Okay, I'm being a tad histrionic regarding the gravitas of their Grammy performance But my disappointment with their choice of single cannot be overstated!
And I'm still a bit gobsmacked that the band chose to spotlight American Soul over The Blackout on SNL o_0 I mean, yeah, Blackout could be seen as having already had its "time in the sun," so to speak, as being the first official thing we heard from U2 on the album--complete with video performance and some hype behind it--but all that attention seemed more directed towards the fans than the public. Ain't nobody getting excited about GOOYOW and ASs.

Rehearsal clips I saw on the news sure look like it's American Soul they're playing.

On one hand I'm irritated they are going to make fools of themselves performing American Soul or Get out, both being the worst tracks on the album.

On the other hand no one really watches the Grammys anymore anyway so whatever.

Well it was pretty obvious this song is the next Boots and they would regret overplaying it

So what music show do they watch if not the Grammys? I mean, can you name another TV show or other setup where a single song music performances would get this much exposure on a single night. The only thing I can think of that would be larger in this context would be the Super Bowl halftime show.

Welp - if they're playing with Kendrick, and thus playing XXX, which includes part of American Soul... I have to imagine it's all part of the same performance, as playing XXX and then coming back to play American Soul later would be pretty dumb

American soul at first was okay, maybe exciting, but now its boring.

It would be very dumb.....so it’s probably what they’ll wind up doing!
