Cool, thanks. I'm going very soon.

Here's my interpretation of OTH 26/12/89's improvised verse:

With the baby love
Your love is in versayshun (the station?)
Bittersweet love, bitter baby
Bitter chain for Jara, for Jara
Oh won't you babe(?), won't you take
Won't somebody, won't somebody, won't somebody, won't somebody, won't somebody love (or learn?), won't somebody
Won't you feel it Lord, won't somebody
Why must you favour(?)
Run like a sea

After that, I think it was hearing Bad live at Melbourne2 Vertigo that really hooked me. Cause after that, I joined Interference, started downloading boots, bought Pop, etc.
Way to be a n00b, Maj.

Here I was, feeling n00bish for not being a serious fan until late 2002/early 2003.

Wow, so Bono's usual initial efforts at writing / singing, I suppose.

That being said, the fact that it was improvised impresses me. Although the fact that Edge improvised impresses me more. He needs to do that a lot more live.

Yeah, Interference just poured fire onto the U2 flame. That being said, it was back when EYKIW made some sense.

Wow, Bad is more drawn-out and just hanging on than anything else. It's actually gotten a bit boring.

What sucks about half the boots I have is that they're not dated...

Yeah. It's very much a stream of consciousness thing and needs to be taken as the voice being used as an extra instrument. It's more about the intense emotion and sheer vocal power of that verse, not the lyrics themselves. I love the "your love is in versaaayshuuuuun" part.

Edge is really fucking impressive there, he's the star of the song. The solo is really quite distinct from anything he usually did. He goes into overdrive in a big way.

No, Rock's Hottest Ticket is 29 April 1987, Chicago. You will adore the performance of Exit on it, and it has a great cover of Springhill Mining Town too.

I believe 26 December 1989, Dublin is normally titled Christmas At The Point.

Hehehe, in terms of Bad, I just realised I'd rate Melbourne2 Vertigo, then Live Aid, then RAH, then the other stuff...

Not biased at all

I used this as the album art for the Sarajevo concert.

I guess Gotham City has the added bonus of NO DIRECT SUNSHINE EVAR. And probably perpetual night, too.

How often does Edge improvise in a noticeable way, anyway? I know (think?) he varies bits in songs like One and WOWY and Beautiful Day within tours sometimes, but any major improv solos beyond that?

I really do wonder what EYKIW will be like when the new album comes out. Mayhem, I am sure.

Yeah, some of the ultra-long Bads aren't actually that great to listen to. Often Bono's gotten lost in the crowd or something. Still, I wish the Bads I'd heard had gone on that long. In the moment, I could've listened to Edge repeating those notes into infinity.

I'm staying up a bit more because I absolutely must listen to this again. I'd forgotten just how incredibly fucking intense it is.

I don't understand why I love the idea behind Batman so much. The myth, the tortured soul, the darkness, the borderline psychopathy and evil... I just really like it!
