That should read percentage of people who've tipped either team, but the point gets across anyway.

Truth.

Heroine.

It's not about the drug.

All these years that I'd never heard it I thought it was. It would make sense with songs like Bad and Running to Stand Still written as bookends to it.

I think calling it Heroin would be just a little too obvious by U2's eighties standards!

Ha, well, it would be easy for me to say to listen to them all, but that's a lot to catch up on. Probably the most key albums there are Stones - Sticky Fingers, My Bloody Valentine - Loveless, and Stevie Wonder - Innervisions. I think it's pretty interesting that you know as many obscure artists as you do, but haven't heard those.

You think the others rein back Edge from being over-obvious?

Well I've heard OF a lot of those. I've probably heard songs off of a lot of them too. The ones that I would've gotten eventually anyway would've probably been House of the Holy by Zeppelin, the Franz Ferdiand one, the My Bloody Valentine one, and the Beck one.
