I don't have Dancing Barefoot. I also don't have Slow Dancing or Wild Irish Rose.
Those are all awesome. How do you feel on the matter of Native Son vs Vertigo? I think everything about Native Son is superior to Vertigo personally.

Wild Irish Rose is sending now. I'm going out soon, but if I've time, I'll get Dancing Barefoot and Slow Dancing started too.

I prefer Native Son. The lyrics are the main thing. The melody's better, the vocals are better ... I think the guitar parts are comparable, I'm not against Vertigo's guitar stylings. Native Son's definitely a better track, though, no doubt about it. The lyrics alone kick the ass of Vertigo ten times over.

Am i able to jump on the Wild Irish Rose bandwagon? I have Dancing Barefoot and Slow Dancing already.

The worst part about my Thursdays is I may end up having to do some of my Royal Historical Society work that day before class too. It'd be mornings at the Historical Society, then I'm at uni midday to 5:15 with a 1.5 hour break in there. But at least one of my lectures and tutes are with Maj. Panic (when he's not in hospital anyway ...) and I can go have lunch with Ali.

Ah shit, it's already sending. I'll pass it on later today. I think Vazza wanted a copy too? I know I needed to send one to her and I've sent so much stuff lately that I can't recall if I did or not.

I thought i was a bit late.

No rush, i've barely downloaded anything you've sent me yet. I'm looking forward to it.

And thanks a lot for doing it too

Quoted for truth. This is pretty much my opinion too.

I hope people don't vote against my playlist because it's short.

I think Vertigo sounds slightly more finished, but ... Native Son's got so much more going for it.

I love Edge's verse.

Your playlist is almost two hours so it shouldn't be concern. If it were an hour and a half than you might raise some eyebrows.

Well, it's currently 43 minutes short of the maximum. It's a big difference is all. I tend to think you're right and that everyone will be fair.

Yeah, I mean, I'm not changing it, it's a concept album that I finally got to work.

I think it is another example of the band turning their back on a good thing. Too many songs never make the album because of that stupidity. Yes I said it, U2 can be a very dumb band sometimes.

Joshua Tree was honestly the only album where they got things generally close to correct.
