Edge's solo in Velvet Dress (which should be the full title, by the way) is some of his most beautiful and sublime work.

Hell, his playing for the entire song is just wonderful. I wish he'd done the solo more than once live. The song just didn't feel right with that part cut out, especially as it sounded so good in Vegas.

NASTOR was slightly disappointing the first time I heard it, just cause I was really expecting something different, but still a good song.

THE SUPERTHREAD HAS FINALLY COME TOTALLY FULL CIRCLE.

Our first thread was Pop Survivor Round One!

Only took us 148 threads to get back on topic ...
I suppose we should enjoy our final 320 posts. And remember to turn out the lights when we go.

Both versions have different kinds of sexiness, I like them both for different reasons.

It seems like such a funny place to have Please on the album, coming out of aural sex, but the transition is better than Mofo -> Angels

I hated it when I first heard it. I even used its title as an example of moronic lyrics.

Then one day, it suddenly hit me. I think because I properly paid attention to the rest of the lyrics.

It's not that i hate the lyricsof velvet dress or anything but I can't hear the obnoxious beeping song. Honeslty, I can't pay any attention to the music at all the music sucks s o much but yeah the edge solo's alight, which it was in a differnt song

Well, when the sex is over, you gotta get dressed and go fight the Troubles I guess.

I only remember HMTMKMKM and WUDM being on Zooropa's cover, but I haven't looked in ages ...

And If You Wear That Velvet Dress as a title suffers from the same problem as Stuck In A Moment You Can't Get Out Of, really. It sounds like a parody, what some n00by casual fan might think the title is, when it should actually be a rather obvious shorter version.
