I like this new U2 song very much and think they did a great job with that cover. I hadn't known the original song. I'm not a fan of Christmas songs in particular, but this one is decent. They made a beautiful, calm and quite simple version out of it and I think the song fits U2 very well. Just listen to the lyrics! It's clear why they chose this song. Bono even changed the lyrics a little bit. I don't know why some people are so hateful towards that performance. Because it's a cover? If I had to chose I'd take the new one over their other Christmas song any day.

I'm with you E_O, too, I'm really getting excited.
The kit looks to be an older vintage kit... I don't think it's a Yamaha kit... Maybe it's just one that he used in the studio, like the white pearl finish kit; seen in the Achtung Baby album art, amongst other places.

Entitled to your opinion and it's as valid as anyone's.

As for "Baby, Please Come Home" it was a charity single 20 years ago! And is still pretty readily available.

I dont recall it ever being released as a single in the UK. I clearly recall the Very Special Christmas album coming out. think it was around the same time as the Tribute To Woodie Guthrie and Leadbelly album came out with Jesus Christ on it
