Kendrick gave U2 writing credit on XXX even though American Soul hadn't been completed or released.
So again ... the song that they are discussing in the YouTube video, Colors, is an actual One Republic song, and not Summer of Love.

It's entirely possible that they were just playing around with the U2 song while recording, that both Tedder and other dude we're involved with, then decided to play Colors and then the video cuts.

It would make zero sense to give a million song writing credits and production credits and then just casually leave this credit off.

But he also says later that it's a song called West Coast, which is a lyric in Summer of Love. I don't care, one way or the other, I'm not a big fan of that song.

Also, anyone that still shoots video in portrait mode in 2017 deserves to be punched in the face.

Still doesn't mean he wasn't working on a U2 song. That YouTube video is like 3 or 4 videos edited together. It's hardly concrete on the issue.

I don't give a turkey either - it very well could be that Tedder just gave them a couple of parts to songs he was working on and they ran with it. It just doesn't make any sense to me why they'd hand out credits like candy on this album, but stop short of giving Tedder a writing credit.

They clearly like Tedder, and clearly had issues with Danger Mouse, yet they gave Burton a writing credit for coming up with the keyboard part of Ordinary Love and didn't give anything to Tedder on this song? Makes no sense.

I'm an old and have been out of the loop regarding music. I've tried getting into The National and I just can't do it.

Enlighten me.

I'd say The National is an acquired taste for some - it usually has to do with his voice - I've found that tends to be the most common complaint. If you haven't tried listening to Trouble Will Find Me I would recommend that album since I think its their most accessible imo

Do you want a case for The National?

- They have maybe the best drummer in rock music.
- The song structure and musicianship is consistently high quality, melding different guitar approaches with more orchestral sounds. The Dessner brothers are composers who play guitar and piano very well, basically. It's a very full sound.
- Berninger's studio baritone is outstanding, and he's gotten better and better at developing melodies as his career has gone on.
- The lyrics, to me anyway, are by and large very good and I think most would agree are consistently interesting at the very least.
- As a live band, they bring things up a notch on almost every song, even if Berninger's vocals often sound strained as he tries to sing louder and gets drunker. Just a killer live show.

I was looking for who I should be listening to in between Thomas the tank Engine and Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, not necessarily a case to be made foe The National.

But specifically regarding The National, I would say that his voice is the thing that's keeping me from jumping in full steam ahead.

I really like his voice, although it makes their music sound a lot more Sad Bastard Music than it really is.

I can recite the theme from Thomas & Friends by heart. This is where you can find me now.

Oh, and fuck the wiggles.

I think The Wiggles peaked with Rock-a-bye Your Bear. Certainly lyrically and melodically.

A great live band though. Mesmerizing.
