That's too bad. Or shall I say, not "bad" enough.

But my point still stands, as I said, if they (the casual fans) heard it on the radio, it would be hard for them to remember.... I didn't ever say it was a single. And besides, I have heard 'Bad' on the radio before. Your planet should re-align itself. I would suggest making a complaint with the interstellar planetary commission.

The title makes me think of Stevie Wonder's "Ribbon in the Sky," which is bad.

Not because Stevie Wonder is bad. Not at all - Stevie rocks.

I've just watched American Idol too long and have heard too many wannabe R&B boys massacre the song.

Now all I can hear when I see the title is: "There's a window in the skyyyyyy ... for our looooo (a thousand mellismas) ooooove!!!"

It would be pretty lame if U2 start worrying about how song titles are remembered. They seem to actually go out of their way to confuse when naming things, if the last two album titles are held up as evidence.

I like the name of the song...maybe it's about space?

I have heard the "wide awake in america" version a couple of times.

Yeah, the "classic rock" station here in Seattle has played the album version occasionally, and The Mountain ("adult alternative," for lack of a better term) occasionally plays the WAiA version. They also play a live version of Elevation from the '01 tour, which blew my mind the first time I heard THAT on the radio!

Bingo. U2 is more of a corporation than a band at times. Even if the new album was finished by the summer, they would save its release until Christmas because that equates to millions of extra CD sales.

Actually, the last two album titles are quite memorable, especially the last one. I think odd sounding titles such as HTDAAB stick in the mind really well. But I know that artists do put a lot of thought into titles, and even how they're remembered. For example, 'Leaving on a Jet Plane' by John Denver was originally going to be called 'Oh babe, I hate to go' (if my memory is correct), but I think it was John Denver's manager that suggested the line from the song, "Leaving on a jet plane" because it was far more memorable since it was far less generic. If a title conveys an image, a mental picture to tie down the title in some way, we usually associate the mood of the song to that title. It's just the way our minds work. I think a good, memorable title is a vital aspect of creating art. Speaking from personal experience, I agonize over good titles when I write a poem, a story, or what have you.... You have to pick something that works, something that strikes a chord. Usually these are the memorable ones.

I forgot about this part of your post! Yes, it would be great if it is about something outside of the earth paradigm. U2 haven't ventured outside the atmosphere in its songwriting yet....and this would definitely be unchartered territory for them (or just about anyone for that matter!). Seriously, though, I would like to see some metaphysical writing from U2 -- and this title is certainly indicative of that.

A man takes a rocketship into the skies
He lives on a star that's dying in the night
And follows in the trail, the scatter of light
Turn it on, turn it on, you turn me on"

Funny, I'm listening to that song right now. This is more spiritual than metaphysical, though I can see how the two can be the same thing. This stanza, to me, is about what happens when we die, how our energy shoots to the stars, how we follow the trail of our life after we keep going after death, how we get back to ourselves -- and how we are reborn once again.
