U2 song: "Jesus Christ"

Why is it that no one here ever talks about a cover song U2 did called Jesus Chirst. I got it yesterday at HMV. It's dope as hell. Skinny Bono (1988) sounds like a gospel singer on it. He scratches and claws at the music the way that fat Bono (2002) can't.

Is anyone else familiar with this recording? I think it was done during the Sun Sessions.

I think I used to have an MP3 of it, but I can't recall the tune offhand.

BTW...

Fat Bono????? You better not let PLEBA girls see you callin' Bono fat! Some aren't very forgiving!

i dont understand what you mean by fat bono. look at some of the other bands that are around. all the members of u2 still look great.

"jesus christ" is a pretty good song. an old girlfriend of mine brought this to my attention and i think its great.

Yeah, what's up with "fat Bono"? He's not fat! IMHO, he's just as sexy as ever!!!

I'm giving pukebreath the benefit of the doubt and I'm thinking the poster meant "fat lady" voice that Bono uses in songs like "Lemon" rather than fat Bono. Bono has refered to his falsetto crooning as the "fat lady" voice.

No, I meant overweight.

He's 40+ and drinks like a fish. He's lucky a beergut is his only problem. He's gonna get wetbrain if he's not careful.

But the song is the point of the post.

Great song.

And while Bono may have a bit extra around the middle section, I wouldn't call him "fat"

He doesn't work out a lot like he did during Popmart, but he isn't fat -- just a little pudgy, but he still looks great.

Bono's always been a bit pudgy. I've seen some photos of him shirtless during the UF era - not exactly Mr. Svelte there. He seems to gain and lose weight a fair amount.

UF - slightly pudgy
JT - more fit
ZOO TV - slightly pudgy
POP - more fit
ATYCLB - slightly pudgy

So I guess we'll have a "more fit" Bono next.

As for the song, I actually disagree completely. I think Bono's vocals now would do this song justice FAR better than the screaming voice he used back then. Back then, he was learning to sing with soul. Now he HAS soul. I'd love to hear him do this song now.

P.S. This song came out on a Guthrie tribute album back in '86 (I believe). I have the original CD.

I don't think I would even call Bono slightly pudgy at all. Of course he is not as rail thin as he was in the early 80's. That's because he grew up. I mean I can see comparing over the years...like I said he is not as thin as he has been but a gut? or pudgy?! I wouldn't say so at all but that is just me

Back to the song...although I have nothing to add I got it off the radio in 97...is that the one that is off a Woody Guthrie (?) tribute album...A Vision Shared or something?

sorry, doctorwho...evidently I am blind and missed what you said about guthrie, ahh well...great minds think alike

Bono is NOT fat! Certainly not quite as slender as he once was, but you don't automatically go from slender to fat!

Another one of my favorites.

Speaking strictly of the techinical side of the music, this is one of the better songs they've done. Bono's voice is classic 80's Bono, and Larry's drumming is just pounding.

But...for the best "80's Bono," It's GOT to be Christmas (Baby Come Home)! He's amazing in that one.

If the song was the point of the post, why take a shot at him in the first place? Why not just say "Bono scratches and claws in '88 the way he can't today"?

Bono can be pretty goofy at times and there are a number of things to pick on him about; being fat isn't one of them because, frankly, he's not. Maybe a bit overweight. Maybe even a bit pudgy around the middle. Fat? Hardly.
