Electrical Storm? Not one of my favourite tracks. The William Orbit mix just reminded me too much of "All Saints" crappy beach song. Just can't stand all the swirling stuff, that was just too middle of the road and to near what every other group and Madonna were doing as well. So I'm damn pleased that William Orbit had nothing to do with the album that's for sure. Yes it was an ok song but nowhere near an all time top ten U2 song, more like top 100.

And Edge....you should play "Love Is Blindness" on the next tour, that is a cracking song and the guitar is superb.

I think whether or not you like Electrical Storm a lot, it would make for good arena/stadium show...

did i miss anybody placing ES on a hypothetical tracklist?!

Or is this in some other thread I don't know of?

I would put it, I reckon,

in between the "In a Little While"/"Wild Honey" pair ( 6& 7) and

the "Peace on Earth"/"When I look at the World" pair (8 & 9),

cause neither of those can be broken up, and it doesn't feel quite right to me tucked somewhere in the 1.2.3.4 of Beautiful Day/StuckinaMoment/Elevation/WalkOn
grouping either...

cheers all!

I'm going to assume that this thread is nearing the end, but if by chance you read this Edge, what happened to the great guitar work in the chorus of 'Electrical Storm' that was on the demo played on the BBC (or was it Radio 1?) that failed to make either finished versions? I'm referring to the "fret-rising" on individual notes. Aside from the solo, that was the best part of the song, in my opinion.

thanks,
james

This makes me quite happy to hear that electrical storm will be played live, my only hope is that they still have it in the setlist by the time they make it to Australia, this song totally reminds me of spring and the beach from two years ago, I have such happy, happy memories associated with this song and it would be great to hear it played live

Hehe - it's got to be pretty weird having people quote what you said nearly 20 years ago. One of the quirks of celebrity, I guess.

hey that's heavy. I'm gonna keep using that word as much as possible now to see what happens to it in my head...

I think it's just gotta be one of the quirks of celebrity to have people *you don't know* refer to things you said 20 years ago.
I find myself referring to great lines my friends uttered years before all the time.

cheers all!

Hi ShellBe There – How about Electrical Storm (Band Version) before New York? The tension / troubles in the relationship of Electrical Storm followed by the guy running off to the “Big City” facing / not facing his “mid-life crisis.” And it would have “beefed up” ATYCLB too. How about The Ground Beneath Her Feet before ES and NY or after ES and NY?

Sorry to hear that, Acrobat has been my favorite song for a long time, and I know MANY people feel that way.

Are you waiting for a "special" ocassion to play it, or do you lads jsut dont think it will play well live?

Well I hope U2 comes to Holland. And I also hope that U2 will play old stuff. My absolute favourite is Hawkmoon.....so I hope u2 will play that (maybe only in Holland, thats good enough for me)

The Electrical storm was a very nice present on the best of cd. Such a great summer song. And than this great video with finally Larry in the spotlight.....well....not bad at all ( and I want to know what keeps him young, so i can get it too)

Love from Holland
Dutchfan
