I think he does a great job with the backing vocals, it does a lot for the whole sound of a song.

Ooh, cool...did he sing lead on that? That's one of my favorite songs of all time.

I enjoy Edge's voice, yes . "Van Diemen's Land" is a lovely song, that video clip was fantastic (as was the one for "Sunday Bloody Sunday"-very different, interesting interpretation of the song. Loved the guitar work in it, too). Sorta Neil Young-ish. And then of course there's "Numb", I've always liked that one, too.

Haha, I like this comment on the "Van Diemen's Land" clip:

One time when I met Edge I told him he had a great voice and asked him why he didn't sing more. He thought for a second then smirked, and said "then what would Bono do?"

1:35 on. I this video.


I really do like Edge's voice. I love how it blends perfectly with Bono's when he does backing vocals too (sorry, don't know technical terms ). It'd be nice to hear a new song with just him on lead.

I know , the blend is just perfect.

Every Breaking wave is the newest proof of it
I love how Edge finds out how to kind of sing his own notes around Bono's in a different note, and it boosts this effect.

This probably goes without saying, but I love Edge's vocals.

I love the moments where he gets to shine vocally by himself, like those moments mentioned above. And I must add Corpse (These Chains Are Way Too Long) from Passegers to that list. Its dark, creepy and beautiful all at the same time. And that falsetto of his gives me goosebumps.

But I also think his backing vocals are a very important part of U2's sound. Think about it: what would songs like Sunday Bloody Sunday, Bullet The Blue Sky, Desire, Mysterious Ways, Beautiful Day or Get On Your Boots sound like without him?

I didn't know that was Edge singing on "Corpse". I like that song, too. Creeps me the hell out (first time I heard it was late at night-bad timing, I know, and I actually glanced out my window to make sure no dead people were coming toward my house ), but it's a cool song.

From the closing credits of It Might Get Loud.



Props to Misters White and Page too, of course.

I still have yet to see 'It Might Get Loud'. I really want to, though, it looks incredibly fascinating. I'll have to show that clip to my mom, she loves the song "The Weight".

Liked that other "Stand By Me" clip, too .

Oh , and how about mr The Edge's backing vocals during COBL ?
Seriously , that song would suck if it was only sung by Bono. Edge's backing vocals makes it perfect. Timeeeeeeeeee!

And The Wanderer : falsetto part
