Boy Falls From The Sky!

If Mercy deserves an official thread, so does this. Long story short, U2 played this song for the first time tonight in Coimbra. Bask in its glory:

This is the best of the new songs (in my opinion). I love the ending and its great to hear such a powerful delivery from Bono! Too bad we may never hear a studio recorded rendition of U2 playing this.

The "single scrap of dignity in the junkyard of humanity" is an amazing lyric.

officially my favorite of the new songs!!
Bono's voice is just fantastic!

And the Edge's guitar work....might be some of his best...

Yeah, this may well be my favourite of the new songs too. Love what Edge is playing.

Ian McCulloch the U2 fan:
"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
"And as for Bono, he needs a colostomy bag for his mouth."

THAT'S how this song needs to be played, with Edge's guitar and Bono singing. Now what an amazing surprise! I wouldn't have thought they'd pull this one out for the end of the European tour

Quite clear version:



This sounds awesome. This was my favourite beachclip and I LOVE Edge's guitar work.

OK, easily the best of the new songs. Maybe it's just the recording but in some of the verses the fourth chord in the progression sounded a bit..I dunno..off, like not following a natural progession. Having said that I thought that about a couple of songs on NLOTH and eventually got used to them. Great song tho!! I think this could really take off live if they polish it up a bit!

The final minute of the song is really really good, pure gold comparing to the "because, because" of Mercy..
