How To Date Airhostesses And Blondes

... ‘Have They Done Another Achtung Baby?’ and other weird and wonderful interpretations of the acronym HTDAAB!

Just before we revealed the title of U2’s new album, How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb, a few days back, listeners to the Zane Lowe show on the UK’s Radio One www.bbc.co.uk, were given a clue.

Well, sort of.

They were given the acronym HTDAAB – the first letter of each word in the title of the album. And Zane invited listeners – and what a creative crowd they are and with so much time on their hands – to predict the exact title of the album.

Here’s what they came up with – including the name of contributors, where we know it, in brackets.

Frankly, rather too many of them sound perfectly plausible!

Heading Towards Death And Always Believing.

How to Die Alone and Broken.

Hit The Drink, Alcoholics Anonymous Beware (Simon, Sedgefield)

How the Dinosaur Ate a Beachball (Lee, Cardiff)

How to Dump an American Babe

Heart That doubles as a Bag (Geoff, Sheffield)

How to Do an Awesome Backflip

Heaven Throws Down All Almighty Beings. (Simi, Marlborough)

Helicopters That Dance Around Are Banging (Delboy)

Hundred Toffee Doughnuts and a Biscuit? (Wilf, Durham)

How the Days are Always Blue

Have they done Another Achtung Baby?

Hell Takes Dirty Angels and Badboys (Stef, birmingham)

How the Dreams and Ambitions Began. (Jen and Ant)

Heaven Through Drugs, Alcohol And Bass (Matt in Reading)

How to Dash Across a Bridge (Toby, Southend)

How To Date Airhostesses And Blondes... (Holly)

Hold the Dream and Always Believe (Jacqui, Belfast)

Happy Tigers Drive Audi's After Breakfast (Mike Bellamy, Harrogate)

How To Dream, And Always Believe (Tom, on my way down south)

How To Dye An Animal Blue.

Hold The drums And Add Bass. (Jon, York)

I'm so glad they followed up on that. I was wondering what listeners had come up with.
I just can't get used to U2.com actually updating their "news" section more than once a month!

Some of those are pretty good, actually. 'Heading Towards Death and Always Believing' I like - though I like 'Have They Done Another Achtung Baby'. People would do well to remember that!
