What's happening in 9 days? Just another Saturday night here




Nice thread title cori (LMP).


I think I'm getting this new morning schedule down. Try to get to bed before midnight. Get up at 6:00 - get Maddy's breakfast & lunch made, get her off to school. Come home around 7:00-ish and go back to sleep for a couple of hours

Listening to the WBWC U2 Marathon online
Now playing: Stand Up Comedy (I know you guys don't like it ), but I do!

I was kind of hoping Stand Up Comedy would grow on me, but it really hasn't.

I very much hope they don't bring that out for the US tour. Especially in a show I'm attending.

Me too. Not a favorite or anything, and one of the weakest tracks on the album, but it's alright, I guess. Although hearing/watching that Ernie guy sing it pretty much ruined it for me.

Here's a thought: why don't you reserve judgement after the song is performed live? If they play it, you just might like its live incarnation. And if you don't, well, then there's 20 or 21 other songs for you to enjoy.

There are tons of songs that I don't like on an album and loved listening to it in concert. Maybe it's just me.


Great title, by the way.

Yes, if I like it, I'll gladly say that hearing it live changed my mind, but I'm not going to stop having an opinion about it beforehand.



Edited to add:

Oh, and:

I understand your point, and I agree that one's opinion on any song you hear on an album is perfectly valid.

However, in my opinion, to say, "I very much hope they don't bring that out for the US tour. Especially in a show I'm attending," is a little over the top for me. And that's because sometimes, but not always, songs in its live form can sneak up on you and offer a pleasant surprise.

It's the main reason why I don't understand them not playing any Pop songs. Yes, the album didn't sell well in the U.S., but play a song live, like Please, for example, and it might pique at least one person's interest in listening to the album again or buying it for the first time.

Well yeah, I don't disagree on that. Sorry to irritate you with irritating opinions that are irritating.

No need to be sorry. Remember, we're one, but we're not the same. Also, I'm a socialist (see location) and you're not, so we're bound to have differences of opinion now and then.

You wacky Canucks, always being so reasonable.

Hey, I can't remember - did you say you were going to the Vancouver show?

I might be there. I won't know until shortly before if I can go. Depends on the person I may be going with.
