What's the song that's played before U2 takes the stage?

In other words: yes, this topic has been discussed plenty of times before.

I don't hear anything similar except that the two songs have the similar, "take these..." lines.

Yeah, but Ax, this person only just joined this month & probably hasn't seen any of the old discussions.

Here's one, not really a lot of discussion though. Will see if I can find any others but I don't remember there being a lot.

i hate it when people post in forums saying they dont want to discuss something.

You knew what was going to be in here before you entered, thats what the title is for!


And yes I see the similarity, but also the difference, between Do you feel loved and Yahweh. I will post more on religion in both albums soon, I think i will write a little on that.

It has? That's funny, I missed it entirely and I visit this place every day.

Despite the "take these" lines, I never even thought of the two songs being similar - maybe because Do You Feel Loved is so superior in every way to Yahweh.

I love them both. Do You Feel Loved is filthy gorgeous, and Yahweh is spiritual uplift. I can't see the similarity myself though!

I haven't noticed the similarity but I am going to listen now that it's been brought up. I prefer DYFL to Yahweh.

I've noticed the opening lyrics of both being very similar, but the songs are completely different in every way from that point.

I've noticed that I can't listen to either without realizing how much better the rest of the songs on their respective albums are, so yes I agree they are similar.

Actually you know something, it HASN'T been discussed to death! Even supermod Neutral could only find one thread on the subject. I think we have a case of people jumping the gun in defense of one of these songs when the argument has not even begun yet!

I've never noticed any similarity between them--I haven't listened to Yahweh in months though. Will have to give it a look.

Axver maybe you were thinking of the Walk On / Eclipse comparison... I've seen that topic pop up quite a bit.

Then we can play them backwards and find out what they're really about.

Do you feel loved is a sexual monster. Yahweh is a spiritual offering
