The first two lyrics have come from Beautiful Day and The Sweetest Thing.

If you count the entire row of countries and sites, including Italy (obviously it was the plan that an Italian website was included in the hunt), there's 18 altogether.

Some-one said 14 days - 14 letters.

Maybe it's gonna be 18 letters.

Or 16 minus Italy and Japan - both of the Japanese websites are featuring the same lyric at the moment.
And based on what's been said above.
16 old songs (18 - the 2 new ones).

I was thinking the answer might be Honolulu too.

But I've changed my mind.

There's just something about the first clue, about the word "shall" actually that has me thinking that the answer is not going to be Honolulu.

Besides wasn't it already said that the letters were supposed to make a sentence.

Where shall we go?

Made me think of:

'We shall overcome" - 15 letters
"You shall overcome" - 16 letters

And "we shall overcome" had me thinking about solving (world) problems, which brought me to:

"Love and peace or else" - 18 letters.

Which I now think will be the answer!
How did you find the clue to Sweetest Thing? I checked both lyrics on U2.com (album version and single version) and none of the letters were highlighted.

I'm very frustrated with this contest already!! I checked some of the other sites and didn't see any clues or banners--do you have to go surfing around each site to find them or what?

Maybe they will try to trick everyone by posting 2 clues one day and none another!

What I'm wondering is if the clue will be on the first page, or if we'll have to navigate around ALL of those sites?

I noticed on the Japan pages that the clue was on the first page, so I'm hoping that will be the case. It makes it a little easier, but I certainly do NOT have the time to navigate through every page of all these sites, nor do I want to.

The Sweetest Thing lyrics were right on the first page on the Japanese site. About half way down the page.

Hmm, the thing with the Japan links is that they both go to different sections of the Asahi site (the Sports section and the Culture section), both of which have the same clue image. But there's no image on the actual Asahi homepage. Going through the rest of the links, they all go directly to the homepages of the sites, except for the Channel 4 one, which goes to the music section of the site. Maybe that does mean the clues will be on the main pages/the pages linked. Or maybe we will have to search through them I suppose it's too early to tell. Though I will say that the layouts of some of these sites don't even really appear to have an obvious place to fit the U2 banner (though some of them have the obvious slot for a square ad, and the banner is an ad, in that sense, so that may be the spot to watch), which is a bit discouraging.

never mind. just saw the lyric.
blue eyed boy....

anyway, where do we send in our answer to?
or they're not giving the form or whatever it is for us to send in our answer yet?

and i guess we do have to check ALL of these sites everyday because who knows which one's giving the clue for the day..
