The thing that strikes me immediately is the song sounds waaaaay better and more complex with clear audio of the bass line. Adam brings it. I also am convinced the thing that is 'missing' as other people have put it is a second guitar during the build, and a strong continuation of the piano line. The guitar thing is not possible live, but both things can be (and probably are) fixed in the studio version.


Thanks Dan, great job

Wow, yeah, this is great. Am I wrong, or did Larry come in earlier this time, or at least more forcefully? Either way, it's great.
Their performance of it gets better. It feels shorter listening to it now, where the Vancouver/Seattle performance seemed too long. I think it was just a better performance making it feel tighter.
Do wish the Edge was doing something more unique, but we can't always get what we want.

The SC rip is definitely the best version. I adore the melody of the verse and the chorus. I'm not the biggest fan of the ending, aside from Larry's drumming is on point.

Just want Edge to step up for this next album. He used to paint so many colors with his guitar and I feel he's been stuck on meh for a long time. There are a few exceptions of course.

thanks for the link dan_smee! it sounds great!

it's catchy as hell too - after only hearing it a couple of times, i found myself humming it these past couple of days, and couldn't immediately place it - took me a few seconds haha

I think it's such a great song.

My only problem is the same I had with Invisible: it's a KILLER chorus. Do it one more time at the end of the song!

Or they play it and give us nothing.
OR they play two JT songs...
I actually could envision them releasing a 2 or 3 songs before the eventual album release. Like you say, that's a pretty common thing, and, as others have mentioned, releasing anything over the summer will allow SoE to ride in the promotional slipstream of the Joshua Tree tour hype.

The audience - both in stadiums and watching tv appearances like the one next week - will already be there, and will likely be viewing U2 in the most favourable light they've had in a while (as they'll be playing some of their strongest tracks, and reminding the world of why they're such a huge band). So it seems like the perfect conditions to also slip in a new single or two to a receptive, built-in audience.

Having said that, I bet they're worried about one thing distracting from the other. They'll probably consider it 'neater' to tie up the JT tour, and only then start promotion for SoE in earnest. I hope I'm wrong though!

I think odds of playing TLTTGYA on Jimmy Kimmel are about 50/50, but I'd be completely shocked if they released it officially for another month or two at least.

What if they really fucked with us and did Best Thing on the show? I really like Little Things, but it's not exactly a late night show appearance song.

I don't think they would play 2 JT songs. And I also think they're likely to play something other than the "big 3". Streets is too big for a little stage like that anyway.

My guess is In God's Country, and then the new song.

Little things is a song I can't put down, it has basically described everything in my life over the past year, this band still deliver such a message to some people
