SOE- 27: And SOE it Begins

I just think they botched their chance at a radio hit, sadly.

(I know Best Thing is doing well on the iTunes charts... but I think their lead single was always going to make a bit of an initial splash).


I was one of the the first in the corner of why the hell would they release this as the first single. I'm hooked and based on reading comments in message boards this one is taking off. I think they got it right. I hope so as I would love to see the boys enjoy great success.

I started the day in my car at my work listening to this song play for the first time in the radio. I cringed and thought it was a sloppy mess. I listened to it throughout the day.....I left my work blasting this song from my car.

It's infectious and while I don't think it's their best work, it's far from as bad as I thought it was on first listen.

From critical reviews to YouTube comments....people seem, for the moment, to be really digging this song.

We will see how it holds up.

I like this part...

In writing and rewriting the song, Bono said, “I made it about democracy, not an aging rock star.”
Reads to me as if both popular lines of thought re: The Blackout were correct; it was originally about an aging rock star, but was rewritten to be political.

Thanks, Trump.

The Edges interview is interesting saying how any song on the album could be a single and they had a hard choice choosimg it. Deffiantly more singles before album drops. My guess is one in October and another around album launch.

There's no way the other two don't show up. If they don't play the new song to push promo they are morons.

100% they(all 4) play You're The Best Thing About Me! I say that because U2.com sent an email that read:

"And tomorrow evening, Thursday, don’t miss the band on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon, performing ‘You’re The Best Thing About Me’, live for the first time."

In the german radio interview Edge menteins that Bono started writing these letter songs after some scare that he wouldnt be around much longer. I figured the bike accident.
But then in the dutch radio interview Bono menteins 'a couple scares', and again im thinking the bike accident amd perhaps the back surgry before that. But when pressed further on it, he menteins the bike accident 'and a few others since then'.

Did i miss this news? Is there any other known story that could qualify?

He was on a plane and the language hatch opened or something along those lines....that would make your pants turn brown for sure.

The "why am I walking away" line would take on a pretty real new meaning if that were true...

Yeah, Bono's big boner in 2014 did cause some self reflecting.

That sounds like some sort of health scare rather than his accidents..... Not a nice thought. Been saying for a while he just doesn’t seem quite right, can’t put my finger on it.
