Well, they're an exception. Besides, I don't think everyone was happy at the time with the 'crazy' sounds on Revolver and Sgt. Peppers. I have an NME special on them which has snippets of original fan letters in newspapers. And quite a bunch of it is hate mail, probably fans of the 60-64 years. But I cannot comment too much on how it really was cos I wasn't born till 78.

How do you know? Did you live thru it? So does that mean you were born before that?

No, it means that the two of us are the same age.

You're just as old as me, sucker

I'll pipe up

I think some people are misled in terms of what is art and what is creative music.
Pop music is a thing to be loved. I'll be damned if 80% of my record collection isn't sugar. Kid a is great, but There's nothing less creative about Nilsson Schmilsson

point is, I don't think anyone should whine over U2's lack of experimentation. I would be overjoyed if they released a really great pop album. Something on the same plain of greatness as revolver. But they haven't been doing it!
Bono's lyrics sound like trite blurbs masquerading as something life-changing. The music is pedestrian and uninspired.

I don't give a shit if they release a "weird" album with lots of sonics. I'd be just as thrilled if they released a simple guitar album that pulsated with catchy melodies and relentless hooks.

I'm sorry, but elevation type stuff just ain't gonna cut it!

Can it get any more sunny and beautiful than She Said She Said? Really, can it? There's nothing like that on ATYCLB.

She said "I know what it's like to be dead.
I know what it is to be sad"
And she's making me feel like I've never been born.

I said "Who put all those things in your head?
Things that make me feel that I'm mad
And you're making me feel like I've never been born."

She said "you don't understand what I said"
I said "No, no, no, you're wrong"
When I was a boy everything was right
Everything was right

I said "Even though you know what you know
I know that I'm ready to leave
'Cause you're making me feel like I've never been born."

She said "you don't understand what I said"
I said "No, no, no, you're wrong"
When I was a boy everything was right
Everything was right

I said "Even though you know what you know
I know that I'm ready to leave
'Cause you're making me feel like I've never been born."

She said , she said "I know what it's like to be dead"
("I know what it's like to be dead")

I know what it is to be sad...

Now that the usual suspects have posted their distaste for U2 for the upteenth time...

...can we get back on topic?

I agree. I think that U2 THINK they know how to make pop music, but really, they don't. Apart from, I guess 'The Sweetest Thing'. That was a very decent pure pop single.

ABBA in their heyday, Wham in theirs, New Order, the Pet Shop Boys to this day, fuck it even, dare I say it, Justin Timberlake and Britney- THESE are the people that know how to make GOOD pop music. U2 should leave it to them.

Some posters on here think that because a lot of current CHART pop stuff is trite and crap, all pop music is the same, but the Monkee's were pop. The Beach Boys were pop. Early Beatles were pop. Blondie was pop. The Supremes were pop.

But U2 aren't a pop band, so they should quit trying to be.

"Vanishing Point"

Grow up children, don't you suffer
At the hands of one another
If you like a sleeping demon
Listen can you hear him weeping
Tears of joy and tears of sorrow
He buys love to sell tomorrow

My life ain't no holiday
I've been through the point of no return
I've seen what a man can do
I've seen all the hate of a woman too

Feel your heartbeat lose the rhythm
He can't touch the world we live in
Life is short but love is strong
There lies a hope that I have found
And if you try you'll find it too
Remember why I'm telling you

My life ain't no holiday
I've been through the point of no return
I've seen what a man can do
I've seen all the hate of a woman too

And they gave him away
Like in 'Whistle Down The Wind'
By the look on his face
He never gave in"



New Order's 'Vanishing Point' - serious lyrics, but married to a great snyth pop tune.

This is how the masters do it.
