'Window In The Skies' -- The "Eternal Song"

“It’s a song that every generation has to sing, it’s the eternal song. It’s about what’s possible and still everything is possible.”

- Bono

Wow.

By the way, I can post the full article which is from Melbourne's Herald Sun. It didn't appear on their website, but it did appear in the paper's Saturday edition....

Back to the topic... If this is indeed a "generation" song, one that people from every generation will be singing, could it really be 400? Sounds more like 404 to me, but redone with piano. Of course, it may be none of the beachclips at all!

The speculation continues....

The "eternal song"....wow, Bono really outdid himself this time....I mean, wow.... just wow.

i just started singing through All My Life while playing the "Orchestral Strings" preset on my MIDI keyboard and it actually works if you slow the tempo down a bit. The prospect that Windows could in fact be a totally altered version of All My Life/404 would be really incredible. I also discovered that edge's guitar solo is easily transcribable to strings, as a friend of mine plays violin and was trying to figure it out earlier. It seems possible that instead of having edge solo twice, one of the solos could be on strings....

somebody, please wake me up!! i think i am drifting into the land of u2 dreams

I really don't think this is a beach clip song. Or if it is, it has to be a heavily modified 400. But wow, that's really a ton of hype, even from Bono. Can't wait to hear it.

Does it matter anymore? Whatever it is will be much different from any of the clips anyway.

I still think it will be 400, but the thought of it being a re-worked 404 makes me drool.

Well, it seems that the new song can be another uplifting song in the same way Beautiful Day and Streets are. Cool

Bono says he wrote 8 songs on the piano and brought them to the studio. I presume Window is one of these (given it has piano/orchestra) but it could be a leftover from previous album sessions.

So why is everyone so caught up in trying to fit 'Window' into one of the beach clips when:

1. we know they have at least 8 new songs plus any leftovers from HTDAAB (ie far more songs than there are beach clips)

2. clearly none of the beach clips sound like the descriptions of 'Window'
