Fuck, they block these types of sites at work.

Can't wait to hear this.

I prefer the U2 version (obviously) but this is a good cover. Elbow does good covers...

I like Elbow...

I'd go if they let me listen to the song there.

I got the stupid ad for Jamaica as well along as a very graphic video about smuggling drugs it looked like, not sure if the tourism board of Jamaica would approve.

The song loaded shortly there after.

I still need to listen to their version of RTSS.

Oh, the unbearable slowness of being.

I saw dates, and Mansfield MA, and got so excited. Then I saw that they were opening for Coldplay . To be fair, I've always kind of wanted to see CP, but they just don't seem to be that interesting live, and the charge to much, but I really want to see Elbow do their own show... if they're opening for anyone it should be U2. I would probably die seeing the two of them at one show though, just like I would have died at Honolulu because PJ was there.

Oh, and I've been listing to their cover of RTSS this week, its amazing.

I played Elbow for a coworker yesterday and she fucking loved them. Another convert, courtesy of NSW. And to think, I've liked them since the beginning. I'm so proud.

If they opened for U2, I would also die. Though, I did survive Honolulu....Doves or Elbow would be sweet.

Coming to this site made me realize how many people out there have U2 and PJ among their favorites, given the types I've seen at concerts I wouldn't have thought there'd be so much crossover. Casual music listeners sure, but each band seems to have adamant fanbases that are very different from each other. I like it though.

And Elbow is one of my favorite artists because of Interference. Same with The National.

I LOVE Elbow as I love U2 but the cover version of RTSS is not my favourite!!
It's much better by U2!!
