i've seen you post this before (in fact, it's all you've ever posted) and it was so lame i decided to ignore it. but now that it's directed at one of my posts i have to tell you that i've not only reported it as trolling but also wanted to congratulate you on being quite possibly the singlemost retarded reason that this forum sucks such big fucking balls anymore.

I'll be in the minority when I say I prefer Elvis Presley and America. It was immediately my favorite when I first listened to UF.

EP&A - w/o question

in my mind there's no debate.

EP&A is, IMHO, one of the best songs of all time (If you want an explaination, I'll give it to you) where as Crumbs is a great song, but merely ranks in the middle of U2s mind blowing library.

I'd love to hear your explanation, because I'm baffled that so many people here love it so much. I've given my reasons for hating it, and would love to hear your reasons.

Sure.......

Just the idea of reversing ASOHC and slowing it down is a different and fun idea. The fact that Bono didn't even know he was being recorded albeit sneaky, is interesting as well. Bono just improvised words and FEELINGS....that's the key w/ this song. He just let the music and thoughts overtake him and he ended up in unchartered territories vocally that he didn't even know he was capable of. I love the fact that you can't make out the words and hear different words every time - some 20+ years later. This makes the song ever changing and you can attach any emotion or mood to it that you want. It's a chamilion. You can listen to it today and hear desperation. You can listen to it tomorrow and hear hope. It's sad and rainy on Tuesday, but happy and sunny on Friday. It doesn't have the usual verse, chorus, verse, chorus, bridge, chorus, outro that your business as usual songs have. You don't know where it's going next. You don't know if it has a purpose. BUT, the purpose is what you make of it, it's what you want it to be. 99.9% of songs are what they are, it's black and white.....EP&A is ever changing and that is it's beauty. It's beauty is apparent in it's slower parts and in it's climaxes as well. The Edge's accoustic guitar provides yet another level that many might not pick up on the first 2 or 3 listens but it adds to the overall epic feel. I think the song is light years ahead of the listener until it's beauty is fully understood. I'm not even sure if U2 realized (or realizes)what they captured, if they understood it's nuances, or it's many dimensions.

I hope that made sense, because it makes sense to me. If my speil doesn't convince you, that's ok, to each their own. But I'm happy to be alive in the timeframe that this song exists.

CRUMBS BY A MILE

This should be no contest. Elvis Presley and American is a confused mess of a song that I can't stand to sit through. Crumbs is one of the best U2 songs since Achtung Baby.

I really like Crumbs, but I think it's over-produced on the album, too much unecessary crap on it.

Thanks for your thoughts, Numb1075 - even though I still stand by my assessment of the song, I can appreciate why you love it so much.
