Vote for U2's next "city song"

We've had Miami and New York so far.

What do all think U2's next city song should be?

My vote is for Malad Idaho. AKA the armpit of the universe.

Seriously, I think U2 could do a cool song about Las Vegas.

Maybe Vegas. But nothing is like New York. Bought the album a month before I moved here and its the theme song of my life at that point. Although its U2 so that tends to happen alot to me.

I really hope that they don't do any more of these - it can get pretty cheesy pretty quickly. New York made me wince when I first heard it and now that it's become "meaningful," that makes it even worse. Personally, I really do not like the lyrics in this song at all.

Instead, they should do a country song. No, not country and western, but a song about a country. I think it should be about Djibouti.

I've prepared some sample lyrics to better make my case:

I saw my angel
on a quiet night
she looked at me
and I thought I might
Get some booty
Yeah, I saw my cutie
It was in Djibouti

Her skin was velvet
lit like Porcelain
She was so beautiful
She kicked me in the shin
no way I could win
There in Djibouti

Toronto. They love Canada. Canada deserves it. They never get anything good. There's already two songs about places in the States. Be fair. Share.


PErsonally, I think they should make a song about the life of deathbear

None.

I don't like either of their "city" songs. The dislike I feel for "Miami" almost borders on hatred.

How about not an American city, for a change?

How about Vancouver?

Or maybe Cairo...man, I want to go to Egypt. But I don't really see the Irish band singing about an African-Arabic country...

DC, that was a great song!

here's the U2 song about the area in which I live (note: this is not intended to be good poetry).

Dallas
She was a red hot fire
With a voice from an angel choir
Alice
Alice lives in Dallas.

Dallas
The metropolis for sin
only cheaters win
Malice
Malice lives in Dallas.
