GOD U2 COULD YOU DROP PRIDE PLEASE. AND ONE. DROP ONE.

But unlike half the fandom, I don't want them to drop Bullet. I love it live.



Also:

Free at last, they took your life
They could not take your PIE!

I'm also partial to 1989-12-30, Dublin, but I know it doesn't beat the studio version.

I'm a huge studio Pride fan. I think it's an amazing song and the second guitar solo is magnificent. Axver pointed me towards the only LIVE version I've truly liked, though. Crowd pleaser in person, but not for me. Never has there been a song I liked so much that I disliked LIVE like this.

I may not have had the opportunity to hear it the first time it came out back in '84, but that's pretty much how I feel about TUF the song. When I try to explain why I like it I come up empty, and everytime I think I might not actually like it all that much, I listen to it again and forget I ever had such a ridiculous idea.

Hey, Coldplay. We know you want to record your own version of Pride, but please stop trying. You can't. It's unfuckwithable.

Wouldn't it be cool if Gus Johnson narrated your trip, with a glass of powerjuice at his side? That would fucking own. I wish he'd narrate my life, actually. He and Morgan Freeman.
I beg our Exec Producer to hire Gus for hoops at least once a week.

I feel capslocky tonight.

I was just remembering the first time I heard Pride back when I was 13. We were camping and it was under the stars and such

I think interference made me hate Pride live more then U2 actually made me hate Pride live, but the hatred's there now.

I felt the same way about this and "Bullet" at my U2 show. The spoken word verse in the middle of that song is my favorite, and instead, I got overwrought political commentary in the form of "Johnny Comes Marching Home Again," terrific.

Later, Khan.

Ashley, yes, it's hard to guess that I like ASOH, just no clues at all.

Glad you love UF so much. I do too. Unlike you, though, when it comes to ASOH, I've never once thought that I disliked it.
