Those cats have ace taste in music.

I need to get that M83 album.

Also, it makes me want to bang my head against the wall - they talk about music like that, and then they turn around and talk about needing to be on the radio. Bon Iver, PJ Harvey, M83 .... not on mainstream radio. Keep going on that theme, boys. Fuck radio. You don't need it.

Okay, Bono darling. We'll go with that.

I thought it was before, wasn't it? But I might be remembering wrong. Or maybe I'm getting it mixed up with The Songs of Ascents. Or maybe he is. LOL.

Edit: You're right, it didn't have the THE before.

Agree on all these points

LOVE Bono's choices of the ladies especially, I listen to these artists a lot, too.


And then there's

We’re working on three albums at the moment and we haven’t decided what order we’re going to put them out but ‘The Songs of Ascent’ have the kind of beautiful intimacy that we’re speaking of now. They fit into this moment, the mode of some of these artists that I was hanging out with on Christmas Eve.

his song ‘Lord I’m Coming’ is my song of the year
if that was B-man's song of the year, no WONDER he was so morose and scaring us all in those interviews last summer/autumn

it is a beautiful song, very David Sylvian-like (massive compliment), but pretty fucking heavy! i can't listen to stuff like that these days...

^ That song is quite pathetic and I'm always troubled by Gavin's voice that's why I hardly listen to his music. However, I appreciate dark music and love to listen to dark tunes, it doesn't affect me emotionally, I'm quite a dark writer myself, but quite a joyful person in general.

Interesting choice by Bono, though.

i'm already miserable enough without listening to miserable music to bring me down even more lol

nah just messing... there's room for every mood in music i guess, but it's just not where i'm at in life right now... really kind of appreciate "uplifting" music at the moment... real life is heavy enough LOL

Glad that there's a lot of my favorites in their list.I love Foster The People,M83,Noah and the Whale and Mumford and Sons
And also this:
I played a couple of songs acoustically but earlier in the year both Edge and I played at the memorial to Steve Jobs and also at the Hollywood Bowl for the Bill Clinton Foundation. It’s quite something hearing our own songs, like Sunday Bloody Sunday or A Man and Woman, so stripped down and I think it showed us some clues for the future.

^ Yeah, I'm sure Adam and Larry will love this


I'm all for it. But "A man and a woman" IS already a pretty much stripped down song on the album.

I like the arrangement, melody and instruments but the lyric doesn't mean anything to me.
I like Gavins voice but this song I don't think suited his voice to well.

I just couldn't care less for sympathy. Maybe he finds the cold weather romantic. It's been mild weather this winter compared to last year. Him and his missus probably haven't ventured outside the hotel bedroom
