Now, I like being home as much as the next guy.... if not more...


But look... it is in my strong opinion that the only way to hit a grand slam is to have the bases loaded.


You've got to have all the bases covered first. That way, the stage is set and the anticipation for something grand is there. And then know how to swing the bat, of course. That's how you get the most runs in, and how you get the most points scored. And if you can pull off a grand slam or two, they start sending in the relief pitchers, and then you can really begin to hammer away.


To each is own, I guess. Grand Slams are too good for me to pass up, though, so you've got to try

Oh yeah, and if you fast forward through "Streets..."...


That is sort of dissapointing... You don't get the full experience, the "musical journey", heh. I think the beginning is one of the best parts of the song, honestly. The guitar is very... mystical, almost.

It took me forever to get it right, but it, as usual, was worth the time and effort.

you have it all backwards...I ONLY listen to the first two minutes.

And, in the sense AngelaHarlem speaks, I have never made it past first base. I usually get thrown out trying to steal second.

Sometimes I start Zooropa and forget I even started the cd. So it's like a big suprise when I hear it. It's incredible!

uh bye

I've lost my Zooropa album in the past 2 weeks so even if I want to skip the first 2 minutes I can't.

I still don't have Zooropa yet... I've just heard various songs from it. But not the album itself.

Oh!

Well, that is a big difference....


That isn't so bad, because sometimes that's all I want to hear, too.


hahahaha

Keep trying for second.


But sometimes it's easier to hit a double than stealing.
But then again, I guess it is best to slide with your hands first if your going to steal

Just don't let U2DMfan see you post that! He'll tell you you're lying.


And now I can say I actually have heard the song. Kinda cool on the first few listens. I'll listen some more over the next few days.

Love for Lemon.

I can't say I do the same. On the way to and from work today I managed to listen to the album in its entirety and still can't get over what a brilliant piece of work the whole thing is.

I couldn't skip those first two minutes of Zooropa. I feel it adds to the song, giving it that slow, but still epic, build up that makes it a classic.
