Yeah, but The Killers fucking suck and are releasing albums 10,000 bands have already released, so that's not really much of a feat.

Mom'll be 41 next week so that means she was 24 when AB came out.

... wait, that's a line in TTTYAATW? I don't recognise it at all.
I copied the line from U2wanderer. They don't seem to know the full line it's the part right before Nothing much to say I guess/Just the same as all the rest where the beat changes for a moment

Ahh, OK, so a bit younger then. Wow, my mother turns 50 next year.

Huh, OK. It doesn't seem familiar whatsoever to me. But then, it's TTTYAATW, a song I doubt I've ever played even 20 times, so ...

I just thought Acrobat was 4th of July and I had quite a WTF moment out of that.

I have to confess that I'm listening to 409.

Remember how excited people were for this new direction U2 was taking?

My mom's kinda young, she was 20 when I was born, 24 when my sister was born. My dad's 43.

it's just one of those things that they do that I really like. There's a couple of songs by them that have just one or two moments in them that I like more than the rest of the song (In A Little While ~ Rocketship Line for one)

Man, Acrobat was on the DI III list I had made before my iPod crashed. IMO it was the best thing I'd made so far, and I can't even begin to remember how it went now It was a nice piece of work as far as I'm concerned though

I can think of a number of reasons

1. It's been a LONG time since I've heard Acrobat
2. I just listened to 4th of July
3. Sleep Deprivation

Some people even had signatures about it! I'd be pretty embarrassed now if that had been me, but I never dug 409 much in the first place. I Believe (402) and All My Life (404) are the places to be.

The cutest thing ever is how in 409 you can hear a child say "aww" and something in French in the most adorable voice.

One of those sounded just like a Howie Day song, I swear to God. That kinda turned me off of those particular Beach Clips
