The Beatles' 'Happiness' is great. U2's though. I just can't stand Bono stuttering the lyrics out ("happiness is uh, a wa-urm guun").

I'd have to say these are the only two songs (Your Blue Room might be there too) - that I won't listen to...

I don't *hate* any U2 songs and I honestly never tire of the others - but I'd have to agree with you here... These two/three just don't cut it for me (but admittedly, they're not hits...)

I HATED the video too (but I like the acoustic version of Stuck)!!!

I watched it and couldn't help thinking about how lame it seemed.

Heard it on the radio today. I had given the song a break for a while and so liked it when it came on today. Was actually singing along.

can i confess something? i think i've listened to the new album maybe all of ten times. i don't know the words to any of the new songs (i don't know if i even know all the words to vertigo). don't be mistaken though, i don't dislike it or anything. they just released it at the worst possible time. my favourite band released their new album a month before U2's album. then, i had to listen to it because i went to see them in concert last month. i'm not gonna be able to see U2 (unless they come here for the 3rd leg), so no marathon listening sessions for me.

Remove the box of shame for you are not alone. When I hear "let me take some of the punches for you" I think, "OH NO, NOT THE MARTYR BONO!!!" Oh yeah, it's also very over produced and while I don't doubt the sincerity, I thought Kite tapped this vein so much better.

hey, don't knock them! i love duran duran, they're my favourite band, hands down. i've seen them live three times, i've only seen U2 live once, during popmart.

i want to see U2 again but they never come anywhere near me. duran duran don't anymore either, but somehow it always magically works out so i can see them. when i was in school, they'd be nearby during my spring break, or with this year, they actually announced the tour dates before the cutoff date to put in vacation requests at work.

i would've gone to chicago to see U2 this tour, but it's too late to change my vacation days. so now i just have to cross my fingers in the vain hope they come here even though i know they won't because this city sucks and all our arenas and stadiums suck ass and the last time they came here no one went to see them so of course that means no one will see them this time.

memphis.

the popmart tour here was notoriously low in attendance. but hey, given that atomic bomb has already sold more than pop (i think?), you'd think obviously that'd mean more people would go see them live. they're played on the radio all the time here - not that i know, the last good radio station here just changed formats - but they never come here. before popmart, they hadn't played live in memphis since 1982.

i want to move back up north. :whine:

For some reason I thought you were from upstate NY.


Actually I think it was your avatar. Don't ask me why.
