New U2 song to be played at Grammys

Got your attention, didn't I?

I knew I would be flamed had I written, "U2 spreading themselves very thin by including themselves in every imaginable American TV awards/new years/sports event" because, yes they will be seen by millions of new potential fans, and yes they will be seen by millions of existing fans, but wouldn't it be damn cool???

(nice run-on huh?)

I would be impressed/shocked/thrilled and finally surprised if U2 were to walk out on stage during the Grammys and play a brand new song, no matter how raw it is.

Think about it, the academy, or whoever the hell they are, were obviously duely impressed by ATYCLB, as they did recieve 8 nominations, imagine how impressive it would be if they busted out with a new song...

(Ouizy is having vague/fond memories of when the band opened the Popmart tour by playing Holy Joe in Kmart NYC...)

Yeah, and we all know how warmly that little Holy Joe K-Mart press conference was received by the press and critics.......they'll play Stuck In A Moment or Walk On, you can count on it.

It would be cool. But the Grammy's decide what you play.

I'm holding out hope for Walk On, since it's the song that gets better everytime I hear it, and I'm addicted to the U2 7 remix of it.

No way in hell you will hear anything new. The stiffs that produce/watch/vote/etc would never give it the go ahead, even if it is the biggest band it the land. You forget -- 99% of people out there aren't superfans like us. They wanna hear the hits, and on Grammy night, that's gonna be Stuck or Walk On, because those are the songs of the moment (and the songs they are nominated for). I'll give ya an outside shot at New York (very outside) b/c they did it on Letterman. Just my 2 cents...

I'd -like- to hear "Walk On", since I love the song more and more with every live performance they do.

why would you want to hear anything new on Grammy night? They'd be playing to an unenthused audience anyway. On Grammy night they should play the songs from the album that just got 8 nominations, not something new...
