new u2 song and video on mtv

as for the song, its supposedly more mainstream than the ground beneath her feet. whatever that means.

the video is apparently a live shot of them playing it in a studio, except theyre not actually playing live (just like all music videos).

That means that if I call the radio station to request this song,mthey won't laugh at me and say, "Nobody wants to hear that!"

or they might turn around and laugh at you for requesting a "too mainstreamish" song.

it depends on which radio station you call.

i just want an mp3 or something. surely if the whole thing already aired on tv, someone out there would have it in one shape or form.

YouTwo.net: New U2 song premieres at MTV Rock & Comedy Festival


May 11, 2002
Thanks to John for the following:

At tonight's [May 10] MTV Rock & Comedy Festival, they played a video clip for the
song U2 has done for the Martin Scorcese film "Gangs Of New York." I didn't catch
the song title, which was displayed at the bottom of the screen briefly, because I couldn't
see that portion of the screen.

The video was a performance clip, which looked like it was recorded in the studio. The song, however, was not being performed live. It was a fully produced and mixed track.
It's an excellent song -- more mainstream than "The Ground Beneath Her Feet." It could
get some serious radio airplay when the film is finally released in late fall 2002.

If it's the song they were playing when I was at the studio, it's called "The Hands that Built America" (or some version thereof.) a really nice song, I thought. It capitalized on the irish tradition (fitting for the subject matter) in a way that U2 hasn't really since "Tomorrow."

Obviously the reason it is compared to TGBHF is not because it sounds at all like it, but rather because TGBHF was the last soundtrack song U2 wrote. As for it sounding more mainstream than TGBHF, I'm not at all surprised. TGBHF is extremely unmainstream, really -- more in the tradition of 'With or Without You', in that it's a great song that is able to get radio air-play without being mainstream.

Though I'm excited to hear how "excellent" this song really is, it does in a way disappoint me that it is more mainstream. What I usually love about U2 soundrack music is that it is a bit experimental, a bit ambient, a bit arty. I like to feel U2 stretching out sometimes, becoming free. I think if 'Stateless' had been included on ATYCLB, it would have won album of the year.

The vocals are interesting: they're separated into two parts. On one part, Bono sings basically from the perspective of a couple just stepping onto the NY docks ("You've gotta live with your dreams; don't make them so hard.") This part of the song is really smooth and graceful.

On the other layered vocal section, Bono chants rather harshly "The hands that pulled, the hands that pushed, the hands that beat, the hands that fought, the hands that ripped..." etc.

Makes for a rather nice juxtaposition.

most of the ones I've heard have names that've already been rumored (electrical storm, all because you, etc.) the rest i think I should wait till the band decides to reveal them.

suffice it to say that the songs (at least in their current incarnation) rock. I like them more than "the hands that built..." and far more than any ATYCLB cuts. I guarantee you'll have a smile on your face when you hear some of these tunes and especially edge's riffs.
