Next tour they better bring back Gone!!!!

Friends ,

What ya think?

Should they bring back Gone on the next tour????

It was super on Popmart.
It was on Elevation.

I think it definetly should make a return.
( just like The Electric Co )

Cheers ,

Mauwer

When I first bought Pop I used to listen to this song every single day I loved it so much, I still think its one of their very best. Edges soaring guitar, Bono's awesome lyrics and that brilliant middle eight, sends chills up my spine. I never liked the version they put on the Best of though, they should've left it as it was.

My favourite versions
Tibet 97 Great raw Bono vocals
Leeds 97
Barcelona 97 Pretty intense stuff

I really hope they don't forget about it and give it a few airings next tour, it doesn't deserve to be another lost Pop song.

The version on The Best of sounds like it did when they played it live.

I was actually just listening to Gone the other day (Pop version). Song is really special. I think Pop would have done a bit better (sales wise) if Gone was the lead single.

I think there are at least 20 songs that deserve to be brought back before Gone

I've always found it very bleh, personally. The guitar mostly is scratchy to me...I guess it's a good rock vocal. It's probably one of the best pop-rock songs they've done, but it bores me in that respect. Some days the lyrics seem boring, and sometimes they seem boring but a little more interesting if applied to a more...easily related to situation. I read someone describe it as a lounge-lizard song once, because of the piano, but really, I don't find the bridge that impressive. I appreciate it, but it's nothing special.

Not raw, just blatant, and I'm just rambling now.

Yeah it'd be awesome to hear live. Although it was better on Popmart than Elevation.

Definitely one of their best songs. It's already the most performed song from Pop, but it still hasn't been played enough times.

Would you agree that it was one of the highlights of the Elevation tour, Axver? I actually prefer it to the Popmart version.

Why is it so respected around here? Could somebody explain that to me?

  • Great lyrics, and "you can keep this suit of lights/I'm not coming down" is a fan favorite
  • Awesome Edge guitar riff...he goes wild in that song
  • The piano adds a creepy contrast that I love

It's just a good song...what's to explain?

There are a couple of other songs on that POP album they should remind of, beside Gone, Please, Mofo, Discotheque or Last Night On Earth..................
Why do U2 always ignore Pop and Zooropa............
Ah, it's always the old story, we always will have the usual Bullet the blue sky, pride, with or without you and co. Songs which actually no longer work live. Time to bring back those top albums live
