The 'God' song.

Some of you may remember a post that was deleted and contained a few nice tidbits of info on 2 new songs. This came from a source that is understood to be credible. He also mentioned a 3rd and 4th song that are now one and the same.

He has yet to return and I'm not sure that he will. He seemed to be very careful of not saying too much and spreading any false rumors etc. But he did mention 2 brand new songs.

One is 'Xanax and Wine', almost seems as if this is a working title, I'd almost bet that it is.

The other was a song with the title of a 'God' of some sort. He wouldn't say what it was. Several people took a guess and he said that noone had correctly guessed. The message was deleted shortly thereafter, unless he himself requested it to be deleted, I don't know why it was. It seemed like a harmless bit of information anyways. But just enough to allow us to salivate over the propects of the new album.

Anyhow, on to the question. One of the guesses on that post was 'Allah'. The poster then responded in his only reply on the thread, that 'Allah' was close and that 'you got the first letter right'. That was the last of it.

I think I passed it off at the time, not being able to rack my brain enough to come up with a guess. The thread was dead by the next day or 2, so I am not sure many gave it much thought.

Here is my question.

What are the chances that the song is called 'Aphrodite'?
The Greek Goddess of love and beauty. This would also keep in line with Bono's often quoted "I think God is a woman", or his many lyrics which refer to deities as female.

That's my guess.

We need some more discussion anyway, what do you think?

As Adam Clayton states in Rattle and Hum "Ah F*#& it, I dunno". But Aphrodite is as good a guess as any. Damn, I wish they'd throw up a web cam so we can see if they are really working on this thing or not!! (Just kidding, but I still want a web cam!).

He said the title was God as he/she is known in another religion or something like the sort, but wouldnt say whether it was he or she,.

Thus, I think Aphrodite would fit that bill.

I would agree with Abraham. Bono being so biblically and all.

Yep. That's what I'm guessing.

What about Abba? It's a hebrew word for Father that Jesus used when referring to his father (God) in the New Testament.

Abba. that's one I hadn't thought of...

U2log hints that it's Jahweh. (see http://u2log.com/archive/002523.shtml )

the plot thickens...

Looks like the dude on U2tours.com might be halfway reputable.

Yahweh, it looks like.
