I've listened to a fair bit of U2 in the last month, but some of that was playing things like Pop for the first time in a year. It was funny noticing how my opinions on songs changed. I used to love WUDM, for example, but the opening guitar shits me now. And I didn't really care about DYFL one way or the other before but now I think it's cool.

It has a couple of clunker lyrics, but shit, this is Bono, he's always thrown around clunkers, and the rest of the song's good enough to cover for them.

I still don't get why they didn't do it live on Vertigo.
Or why it didn't MAKE the Bomb.

Yeah, it's god a good hard-edged guitar in the left channel holding things down, Edge's usual chimey stuff in the right channel, Bono absolutely nails some of the stuff, and it kicks into another gear entirely for the outro.

Really good stuff, and one of U2's better music videos as well. I know that's not saying a lot for a band with some pretty uneven videos, but Larry and his mermaid bride nailed it.

OH and Larry actually has some good, well-placed drum fills! Who'd have thought, huh?

He's pretty much the worst poet I've ever read. Once you get past his poncy presentation, which just reeks of trying too hard to be artistic, you get stuck with either 1. unsophisticated grade four poetry with no nuance or 2. incoherent bullshit.

I think he was a hack who wannabe intellectual types grasp onto as some kind of saviour so that they look like they have literary cred.

while spring is in the air

All the pre-HTDAAB talk about how it was going to rock really made me expect more in the vein of Electrical Storm. That would've been good. It certainly would've been better than the mindless sack of crap we got. I still am baffled why they removed the genuinely good lyrics from Native Son and Alt. ABOY.

I think I watched the music video about twice. I can't bring myself to care about them for the most part.

alright i actually had to go to the cut and paste for this cause i dont have it memorized thoroughly but seriously???

i carry your heart with me(i carry it in
my heart)i am never without it(anywhere
i go you go,my dear;and whatever is done
by only me is your doing,my darling)
i fear
no fate(for you are my fate,my sweet)i want
no world(for beautiful you are my world,my true)
and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)

I can't believe that's what you're going to try to pass off as good poetry. Seriously. E. E. Cummings isn't worthy to lick the dirt off Wilfred Owen's boots.
