I will be curious to hear another version of this. It's very poppy, and the little bit of guitar we get is good. I am beginning to think the studio version of this may still have some EDM beats not unlike Sky Full of Stars.

God help us all if that's the case.

... although it will be hard to be as bad as that Aviicii crap in the Coldplay song.

If this is the album version, I'm a little worried about the album.

Can't say I loved that. It sounded like a song any pop band of today could've written. Like Maroon 5 or something. But then it's a remix so hopefully the full version is thicker, fuller.

If they're allowing a DJ to play a remix, does that mean an official release isn't far off?

It sounds like he's saying:

"You're the best thing about me/
You're the best thing that ever happened to Boy"

So he's referring to the band's debut album. The song is being sung to Steve Lillywhite. He's saying Steve is the best thing that happened to Boy.

Yeah, it feels like a one off single. If it does make it on the album if imagine it would sound different. But it feels like it's an ode to Ali. So it's in the theme of the retrospective songs about the early days of the band...

Oh definitely not. Album will be out soon enough. No way they'd go back on tour with only a one off single.

Here's something I wonder about their songwriting process: Bono comes in with a line like "every door smells like fresh paint," or something like that. Presumably a lot of people hear that line before it ever makes it to the public. Does no one question it? Hard to believe so many musicians, producers, etc all hear a line like that and say, "yep, that's the best he can possibly do."

I often wonder that, but with regards to Muse. Did nobody stand in Matt Bellamy's way when he started singing about how "your arse belongs to me now"? Not even the other two guys playing music with him?

But to bring this back to Bono, I can't fathom how nobody stepped in and said something about Stand Up Comedy. The existence of that song continues to baffle me.

If I were, let's say, the bassist in either of the above scenarios, I sure wouldn't want to be personally associated with a song featuring such crummy lyrics.
