The beeping sound in Surrender

Right before he starts singing at the begining, there's a little beeping sound. Am I the only one who has the beep?

I think so, there is a beeping sound but I wouldn't say it sounds like something intentional...

Yup, there is a beep before he starts singing! I always thought it was an error that went unnoticed.

R2 D2, being a big celebrity at the time, was invited into the studio by Bono as a guest. He appears uncredited on that song.

They later went out drinking that night.

Surrender is The Wanderer played backwards.


I thought everybody knew that already.

There is nothing i hate more than that.

The worst is when you're having a sleepover, and someone mentions the clock and then BAM!!! even though you never heard it all night, now it sounds deafening. And even if you move it you can still hear it.

I always thought it was guitar or pedal steel. It comes after that cool sweep of feedback.
