Painful and should stimulate some good discussion

As an aside, that show has the Maybe the time is right/Maybe tonight lines sung in New Year's Day - how many other examples are there of this? It kicks the shit out of just repeating the chorus again.
Vazza reckons it also has Candle In The Wind.

Huh, generally it's said that verse hasn't been done. Honestly though, I've never paid attention so I couldn't tell you if Bono used to do it on occasion or not. I'll have to pay closer attention.

And it's in New Zealand, so it's an inherent winner.

I remember once reading that the name of some river down in Westland translates to "dogshit waters" in English or something like that, but I can't remember which one now.

The same show as epic Bad simply has those two lines done but not the whole verse.

I might give that Bad a listen for Candle In The Wind

Breathless Bono Speech (snippet) so far

And I'm off to be a hypocrite and have a social life despite what I've told you folk. But I'll be back before long.

I presume Cockburn, WA is a relative of Te Urewera National Park

9. Hookersville, West Virginia
Undoubtedly named before "hooker" meant "prostitute who picks men up on street corners," Hookersville combines two crimes of place-naming. One, a dirty sounding adjective (they couldn't have chosen "Pleasant"? "Sunny"? "Happy"?) And two, they added "ville" to the end of the town's name. Affixing "ville" to the end of a town's name is like dressing your silly little dog in a cardigan and letting him carry his leash around in his mouth. It just makes the poor animal look fucking stupid.
FTW

I also need to add the snippets for that longest Bad ever from East Rutherford ... but I don't actually have the boot. Just never got around to getting it, it's one of the few absent from my collection.
Do you want me to send you just Bad?
