The goodlooking one played drums, the weird looking navajo played guitar, the hairy one played bass and the short one was the singer.


Fine. I know none of you wanted to know all this, but you got it anyway.
i love your descriptions!

This is possibly worse than my three musical confessions combined.

i did wif U2 what i do with every band: bought the albums in order.

luckily, i had a list of all their albums thanks to a blurb in a book. it was printed in 95, so it said they were working on "an album of mostly instrumentals (which became passengers obvs) and a rock-and-roll album (which...so did not become pop)"

Anna, that's a lovely story


And I am just now realizing how quickly I must've gotten into U2 (sucks having OCD btw, just putting that out there.) Cause I know I was obsessed by the time the Walk On Video came out, and that obesssion didn't REALLY die down til after I saw them live twice.

I wish I had done that with U2. I'm pretty sure it wnet something like ATYCLB, Best o80-00, Achtung Baby, 90-80, War, TUF, Pop, Zoorpa, Boy, TJT October

wf is missing from this list ause I know that's not enough.

I feel Bono over-does some of the verses in ISHFWILF. If he'd tone back the delivery and not force the emotion, I think it'd be better. More like the choruses, which seem to be delivered more effortlessly.

i loved ishywilf (that's how i pronounce the title, suck it) when i was a kid. i thought the video was hilarious.

fun fact: when i was younger, i didn't know who was who, really. i thought adam was some random drunk they kept showing.
