All those little questions that have been bugging you...

...but were never quite important to start a thread about. I had one floating around today that I'd like answered.

The song A Different Kind of Blue... is it in any way connected with the Miles Davis album Kind of Blue?

Now there is a thread for which you can post all of your insignificant questions.

And let's try to keep this on track shall we?

Mine is important enough to make a thread about, to make lots of threads.

I still want to know who the hell sugar is.

no, I think it's referring to "miss you sugar" that's printed on the HTDAAB cd

Perhaps one of the band members is diabetic.

There's one thing I've been always puzzling about. Why Bono in OOTS sings: "I give you everything you wantssSSS, except the thing that you wantsSsSs". Despite the totally stupid meaning (yeah I get the sense, but it still sounds dumb lol) aren't these lines gramitically incorrect? Why these s's? Or maybe I'm just wrong? Cause obviously not hearing things!

I've noticed the opposite thing in Please, he doesn't sing "please, get up off your knees, but just "plea, plea, get up off your knee, plea"...

I figured that would be one of two things:

(1) Poor enunciation (given his penchant for Bongolese, it wouldn't surprise me.)
(2) The entire chorus of the song is a plea, so it still works, even if it's grammatically incorrect.

Bono's delivery of the line more than makes up for it, anyway.
