Where the fuck is that option?!!!
No, what you do is switch every thirty seconds from actual NLOTH music to Viva La Vida.

So you will all hear it, but it will be Bono’s fault, not mine.
This is sheer brilliance.

I picked A, because I have a toxic mix of Catholic AND Jewish guilt.

yeah, i would listen once, upload it to my computer, but not share because of legal ramifications, and then give back.

I'd be biologically, mentally & physically unable to NOT go with B. That's partly due to my ulterior motive of possibly ingratiating myself to the point that it scored me tickets and/or quasi-accquaintanceship with the band.

The listening parties were done by Universal reps, right? Not the band. I think my choice would be dependent on whether the reps or radio station bigwigs were going to be actively searching for the lost disc, or just repremanding the person who left the disc in the player in the first place.

But I'm thinking about this too much. I choose B (and yes, I COULD only listen to it once and return it. It's only a month until the album comes out, and I don't pretend to be the most obsessive U2 fan on Interference.) But I'd take lots of notes!

I'd load it onto my ipod and return the disk. I wouldn't share it with ANYONE, not even closest friends. So I guess that's kinda B and a half?

Z.



I would listen to it ad nauseum until the lyrics, chords, and effects were totally ingrained in my head....then I would drink until I forget my own name, then do it all over again the next day.


I might also post a couple tid bits on this site for everyone else....


....maybe

Oooh, I like how you think! A way in to meeting the band, brilliant!!!

That's it. I'm changing my answer to B. U2, you can have your disc back, but only if you personally come to my house to pick it up (and don't be sending Paul McG in your place....)

I'd import it into iTunes and then return the disc.

Besides, returning a left-behind unreleased album seems like it might include a decent chance at meeting or at least contacting the guys themselves.

You think that because you're a young pup. Once you get old (like me ) you figure out that a month-long wait is nothing.

No, you'd meet a 22yr old PR rep from Universal. Not that that's a bad thing, they're generally very

B, I'm a curious person and if I have that disc in my hands, I'll listen to it. But after that I would return it to the band, because I'm not going to be the one who leaks it.
Perhaps I'd put the songs on my ipod too...

Bollocks to the CD. If I'm working at the same place U2 are having a listening party, I'd be trying to get to the band....
