It would be a tad awkward if Bono wrote a song about Moreligh

I think the ceiling for an album depends on the impact of the lead single. ATYCLB was an average U2 album carried into the top half of their catalogue by Beautiful Day. NLOTH and SOI faded quickly because the lead singles didn't register. Best Thing is better than Boots and Miracle but doesn't touch Beautiful Day or Vertigo. So while I think SOE could resonate more than the last couple albums, which is encouraging, my overall expectations are realistically modest.

I think we will be getting album details AND tour dates (at least for Experience & innocence leg 1) on October 20, as well as the GOOYOW single/video.
yea i mean, it's doing pretty well. but i think bono years ago said something about songs not permeating the social sphere. don't think Best Thing has done that yet, and don't think it will. hope i am wrong though.

it's been a mild chart success though.

If it is referencing the GOOYOW clip - they have all been removed.

ESPN just played YTBTAM going into a commercial break on the Clemson/Syracuse game. Have they been using it earlier in the season?

But it was artsy when Bono used to dance with scantily dressed Morleigh and repeatedly attempted to touch her night after night on a daily basis.

Morleigh isn't the one painting the house, by the way. She's only dancing.

Um, yes it's entirely different. People dance choreographed dances, they act in movies all the time, but they usually don't write songs about their best mate's wife. At least not in the sense of celebration or admiration. It was a really weird comment.

In most cases these things are paid for.

If this thread is No More Acronyms, is BVS even allowed to post?

"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
