wouldn't be shocked if they showed up to play with green day... or at least the edge and/or bono showed up. wouldn't be shocked if they didn't, either.

Edge might go to lobby on behalf of Music Rising.

Yes, I guess that's the reason we are all hanging around here, because we are SO SICK of them.

I'll bet they sing Saints with Green Day. And the N.O. musicians who played with them at the Superdome will appear as well. Just a hunch.

can i ask just what is the main issue people have with the One cover...if you say its mainstream...think that its the U2 song alot of people know them by already, its been in charity commercials, its been covered by everybody (ahem bank of america) its just been out there for a long time, plus i was excited to hear it on the radio again. If people say it was too hip hop, too R&B, i'd really like to know WHERE? there were no sampled tracks, no DJ spinning. Yes it was a harder edged (no pun intended) version of One, larry's drumming was different and the bassline was different but thats about it. Plus didn't U2 once record at Sun City studios...a promiment R&B studio in the 80's during Rattle & Hum??? Doesn't Bono constantly talk about listening to classic Jazz and R&B. As far as I know...MJB has a hell of a voice...she hits notes perfectly, the remake itself wasn't off tone, wasn't ruined, just added a beautiful female voice. As for the complaints that Bono doesn't get enough singing time, well of course he doesn't, its her CD. You don't buy a MJB cd to hear other people run over her parts. I don't see why people are afraid or dislike a little change. Yes there are some splendid versions of the song, and although this isn't the definate version...I think people have massivley overblown dislike for this song.

She (with U2's help) blew the song. It's a bad cover/version.

R&B is a complete different genre than Rock.... MJB's voice is beautiful with HER OWN SONGS....
I HATE how her voice sounds when she sings one... I am not afraid of a little change, I just hate the fact how she screwed this song! and for the video... all the diva stuff in it, and wtf is with her moves? she's worse than Bono's 'Omg I'm wearing guitar' moves!

Don't worry baby, it's gonna be all right. Uncertainty can be a guiding light...
