OMG Khan, your playlist looks amazing. It is like "how did she know I loved this song?!"

Your cover is awesome too.

And given artists with shitloads more songs like Neil Finn can play just about anything they wrote on command and get it right both lyrically and on guitar, Bono has no excuse. I mean, this is his JOB. He should aim a wee bit higher.
I didn't quite realize what had happened while I was at the show, dad explained later.

I was right in front of Bono that night, he had such a naughty shit how could i forget th words grin

I guess it's tricker than the other songs on AB, perhaps, and that was enough to keep it off the setlist. And I guess also that, when asked why they didn't play it, saying it's insanely complicated sounds a lot better than "eh, we couldn't be bothered".

And I think you're listening to the wrong song there. Larry drops his sticks in Ultra Violet, either around 2:10-15 or 3:10-15, I forget which. I think probably the latter.
D'oh!! I'm always getting those two songs mixed up. If it helps, I can't hear it in Ultraviolet either...

*sees end of Walk On vid*

... Poor bastard...

It would help if you stopped posting and stepped away from your computer. I dunno, go close your windows or something...

Don't give him too much credit now.

I don't exactly feel like listening to Ultra Violet to check, but I think suddenly the drumming is reduced to just cymbals for a few seconds while he scrambles for another stick.

I don't suppose you'll be too shocked when I tell you Walk On wasn't played again for nearly a month?

Hey Wild!

I think the only thing he really messed up at the Melb shows was that Kylie snippet.

You guys can only beat me if I'm not posting? That's just lazy. I don't make any special effort to post shitloads.

I may go for a walk or something. It seems nice outside. Though ever since about 6pm yesterday, I've had this annoying dull pain across the top of my back. I can't figure out why; it just started randomly. And it's not very bad or anything, just a bit uncomfortable depending on how I move.
