No, it was an interferencer who pretended to be an insider and created this title and some lyrics. He stuck hard to the script, some fell for it, but most saw the trolling from miles away.

He eventually admitted it, but still some would bring it up as a grievance to Bono's writing so then that poster tried to pretend he never admitted it.

I always thought Stop (The Poverty) was the song Bono did with Alicia Keys. But that was actually called Don't Give Up (Africa). Either way, I've never listened to that song until now. Ehh...

That lead me to both versions of "American Prayer", one with Beyonce and the other with the Wheaton College choir.

Which then lead me to "Stranded" with Jay-Z and Rhianna.

Ugh... I feel dirty... somebody get me some 11 O'clock Tick Tock (Red Rocks version), quick!!!

There was no song called Don't Give Up (Africa)

That was a cover of Peter Gabriel's Don't Give Up :facepalm:

Thank God. I found a livejournal from 2008 talking about Stop (The Poverty) seriously, so I thought it was actually a thing.

Imagine how many times Cori wrote those names in a school notebook with a + inbetween and a heart around them.

This thread is about to get popcorn-worthy.

Let's all chill out, y'all. The wheels are turning and we can look forward and make haikus.

To answer BoMac: No.

To answer Laz: A metric fuckton amount of times.

To the thread in general: I really like that duet/cover.

The interview was interesting.....okay great. Look. It's like waking up one day to realize your hair has fallen out or you are pregnant with a giant monster inside of you, maybe spiritually, mentally, who knows. At the end of the day you've still got this thrill on your side like the hardest of the porn stars or a guy who just went ten rounds with a grizzly bear, and the bear threw in the towel.

For most of us, it would probably be enough just to have that towel. Some but not all. The way these guys talk they want to get back into the cage with the shark. Poke that bastard in the eye and reach deep in between the jagged rows of death to see what you find in the belly of the beast.

That's different than those old timers sitting around a table in some dark smoky basement telling war stories from their glory days, to be clear, these are war stories... from the most respected guys on the block. And these guys are still packing.

Sure the old embargo hasn't been lifted and the blockade is still being enforced. Who cares? Not me, i don't fly by those controls and i know the difference in being different for the sake of being free in yourself, not going with the flow and following some self anointed leader because, well, that's what most people do.

Sometimes it's life in the form of a great magic pizza, where you started out happy with just a few crumbs. When that wasn't satisfying enough you dug in a little bit deeper for love and acceptance and then worked your way up to power and control. Sooner or later it all comes to pass that you kick the new crumb seekers to the curb to save more for yourself. Such is life. You had saved that last slice intentionally thinking it's the heaven you so desired, but as it always turns out you eat too much and it's going to be hell to pay for you later on when the light is all gone.

It was never really supposed to end this way...or at all?

Time and pain
makes flickering shadows fade
the space between lightning
a quiet hollow soul
full of empty holes
pounding at the heart
beats the blood from the wound
echoes in the distance
from the chorus of ghosts
like sand to the ark
where the footsteps wash away
the wind of oblivion

Very good interview, loved the aesthetics of the setting with Zane and I could have listened to that for hours with even a deeper dive to find out more JT nuggets.

I feel like this interview serves no purpose other than to kick the U2 promo machine into gear.. not for TJT tour, but for the U2 brand, for SOE, and beyond..
