Thanks (even if you were being sarcastic, even though I dont think you were), I do suffer for my art.

In all seriousness though, I apologise if I played a part in stoking any fires... I honestly forgot the FYM rule.

Speaking of, I'll repost the song there, see if it gets any more traction...

Consider good music. Sad! I'm glad U2 decided not to release anything on Friday! Would have been pretty hard to compete with TS's song sadly. Ps: I find this song almost but not quite as annoying as Beibers despacito.

I listened to it and I don't think it's as bad as so many people (not just here) are saying. It's just okay but here is the thing....

This is Taylor Swift and the expectation for a first single is very high and it should be a "big" song that even non fans would go "yeah, I get it". This song is similar (oh, boy here I go...) to Boots. Boots isn't a lead single, it's just okay(on a good day) but the expectations are high and U2 didn't come close to meeting them.

I feel Taylor (similar to Katy Perry this year) will suffer the "poor lead single choice" decision.

When it comes to "listening" records, those are going to be broken all the time because it doesn't cost anything to listen. Hell, I listened to it 3x but not a chance in hell I spend money on it. I also listened to Gangnum Style about 10x but that's because that video is GOLD!!! Lol

U2 needs to sing in Spanish to keep themselves relevant in 2017 music scene

12 days until the lead single from Songs Of Experience. Seems surreal. I've been looking forward to this album since Bono wrote about it in his letter to fans on the day SOI dropped.

Actually, the last time they sang in Spanish is the last time they had a hit song.

I think you're on to something!

The Best Thing on September 8

Did the band officially recognize the Blackout letters? (Ruling out that they were hoaxes)

God I'd rather have some petty political cripple fight than completely random discussion (or shitting on) about the music of an artist who has no connection to U2.

Despite being a full grown man in my mid 30's who lives and breathes rock, I must admit I secretly enjoy some of her songs. I would never even admit that to my wife! But I couldn't even make it through that new song. Just awful. But it does remind me of what the general public probably thought about Boots, especially casual fans. I'm talking the people who bought HTDAAB because they liked Vertigo. Take one listen and think "well, that sucked, not gonna buy that album!"

The first single is more important than a lot of people realize. If the first single flops, the album flops (the exception is The Fly,but that was a different time). Hopefully U2 get it right this time.

Sorry, the relationship between being heterosexual and liking/not liking Taylor Swift is....?

Well, I was just illustrating that I'm very far removed from her typical fan base. But I apologize if that offended anybody, I truly have ZERO prejudice against homosexuals. If anything, I was kind of poking fun at myself being a straight, middle aged, white, midwestern farmboy, and how people think it's funny that I secretly like a few songs by TAY SWAY. Sorry for the insensitivity!
