I remember getting the issue that revealed the POP track listing. I was so excited, wondering about the possibilities that song titles like "Last night on earth" or "The Playboy Mansion" would give us. I had heard of IGWSHA and WUDM from Bill Flanagan's book, when he covered the recording of Zooropa, so I was excited to finally hear these songs.

Such a fun, innocent time to be a music fan. I truly miss that magazine. I still have a few of them, might need to dig them out for fun.

Agreed about Propaganda. Also really liked PoP the album.

That is acceptable, as my user name is two words mashed into one.

Apparently journalists who like the U2-are-over narrative like to use the sales numbers without certain considerations, like that all the free downloads of Invisible don't count and that OL was not promoted like a single. Makes for better copy.

I'm not sure about OL, but you, sir, are no flop.

I am definitely of the belief that whatever is going on with this, it would almost certainly have brought the band as close as they ever have been to giving it up - it's exactly the thing that has done it in the past - but when you see a quote like this...

Quote:
“Bono is always getting offers to go solo and write his own album. That’s looking like a very likely option in the coming years.”
... you know an article is complete bullshit. No-one on earth wants a Bono solo album. No-one.

An album recording of Bono playing air guitar

I'm sure a lot of people do. He talked about it in the past.

He's the only band singer I know who's never done a solo project. He's done a lot of collabs, though. I'm pretty sure Bono doesn't want to do a solo album and I'm not sure he'd do it if U2 should really stop making music together. I think it's too much work for him and he doesn't exactly consider himself to be a solo artist at all.

But seriously, even though I also prefer a new U2 album, I'd happily take a Bono solo work if we don't get any more albums from the band. It's better than nothing.

They're also ignoring that Ordinary Love won a Golden Globe and was nominated for an Oscar. For those who determine artistic success by awards and sales, that means a lot.
