I think Edge has always sounded a lot like Bono. When I saw PopMart, Edge did his karaoke bit, and if it wasn't for the mustache, I'd have sworn it was Bono.

I feel like a bit of a ninny... I only just realised last night that Edge is credited with vocals on Seconds on the CD sleeve of War... teeheehee! Someone remind me to check my own meagre resources before instigating a debate like this again!
I listened to it a lot last night... I'm still convinced Bono sings the apartment (3rd) verse. Bono's voice is distinctive, and I don't think Egde would change the sound of his voice so completely in the middle of a song, if he DOES sound THAT much like Bono...
I'll bet anyone anything they like! If we can get absolute proof from someone who KNOWS... (this is where I'm in danger of dragging the "are members of U2 reading this forum" discussion in here...) Anyway, that's what I think, and I'm sticking to it.

ha ha ha Mr Flay

I did the same thing.

Had such good seata at popmart that of course all I could see was a figure. You would have thought that THE HAT would have given it away huh?
But, yes, I thought that Bono had sung SBS. It was a year later when I heard the recording that I realised otherwise.

You'd think I'd know the difference between an Edge tune and a Bono tune after 15 years, wouldnt you?

This is a little off subject, but I noticed some people talking about never seeing Red Rocks video. I just bought in July at a Virgin mega-store. I also got the Unforgettable Fire tape. I think both are out of print now.

You got to cry without weeping
Talk without speaking
Scream without raising your voice

I think Alisaura's on the right track. Here's how i think it is (from memory as i haven't listened to this song or seen the Red Rocks video) BUBBA, can you settle this for good? Edge is credited with the singing on the War sleeve because he does seem to be the lead:

[EDGE]Takes a second to say goodbye
Say goodbye, oh, oh, oh
It takes a second to say goodbye
Say goodbye, oh, oh, oh, say bye bye...
Where you going to now...


[EDGE]Lightning flashes across the sky
East to west, do or die
Like a thief in the night
See the world by candlelight.


[EDGE and/or BONO, probably BONO]Fall, rise and...Fall, rise and...


[BONO]In an apartment on Time Square
You can assemble them anywhere
Held to ransom, hell to pay
A revolution everyday
[this part BONO for sure!!!]USSR, GDR, London, New York, Peking
It's the puppets, It's the puppets
Who pull the strings


[BONO - especially the "this is the rise and fall of all"]Fall, rise and...Fall, rise and...


[EGDE]Say goodbye, [BONO]say goodbye
[EDGE]Say goodbye, [BONO]say goodbye
[EDGE and BONO]Say goodbye


[EDGE]It takes a second to say goodbye
Say goodbye, oh, oh, oh
Push the button and pull the plug
Say goodbye, oh, oh, oh


[BONO - especially the "this is the rise and fall of all"]Fall, rise and...Fall, rise and...


[EDGE and BONO] And they're doing the atomic bomb
Do they know where the dance comes from
Yes they're doing the atomic bomb
They want you to sing along
Say goodbye, say goodbye
Say goodbye
Say goodbye.

Crap! My Red Rocks tape is back home, but I'm going home this weekend. I'll try to bring it back and look over it -- or somebody else could post the answer in the next couple days...

okay, here's the lowdown from Red Rocks.

But, this live performance IS different to how it is sung on the album, Bono tends to hog it he he

Edge starts: Takes a second to say goodbye, say goodbye..

Bono: Oh oh oh

Bono actually sings along with the chorus and next verse. See told you he hogs it.

Bono: say bye bye, where you going to now

Bono : fall and rising (which he does on the album)

You ready?...

BONO: In an apartment on Times Square
You can assemble them anywhere
held to ransom, hell to pay
a revolution everyday
(now he really gets into it) USSR, you know the rest.. etc

Edge: First 'say goodbye'
Bono: Say goodbye
Edge: Say goodbye etc

Bono: This is the rise and fall

BOTH sing (which is differnt to album):And they're doing the atomic bomb...

Now Ive watched it again, I feel like doing a post.
