Why are you such a douche?

Jay-Z rapped over Sunday Bloody Sunday and it was pretty fucking good.

This was impressive listening to this. I can really see how great U2 are taking a bland, un-intersting song and making it great.

Good job U2

I like it a lot. Unlike some songs, it doesn't have cheesy cliche'd lyrics.

Still cant believe this threat

White as snow is as beautiful and as powerful in lyrics, i couldnt imagine the song not being on the album.. theres something about it i cant explain, if people dont like it, it is because they havent listen enough to the whole album, and with all the s*** going on in the world, a song like is heartbreaking!!

I'm starting to think that all of your posts are borderline bullshit.

Its like you are trying to validate your bullshit opinion by sounding intelligent about music and theory and whatever else you try to make us believe that you know. But in the end, you basically prove that you have no fuckin clue about music or art or anything for that matter.

If you can't understand the simple significance of sampling a melody from a well known hymn in a modern folk song and the effect it has on the context of that song then you don't "listen to songs a lot deeper than you or most people know". I think you need to listen deeper because you're completely missing the point.

Hey man look, you are the people trying to rationalize the complete taking of another song's melody - a religious melody nonetheless - as genius or art. NO. In my artistic opinion it is laziness or lack of ideas. It's like Dadaism. There is a difference between being open-minded about art and accepting anything as art. In my opinion, taking another song, rewriting lyrics, then playing it again is not creative in anyway.
