Enough With The Snippets!

Is anyone else getting a little tired and burned out from Bono's over-use of snippets from other songs in U2 songs this tour? In the past, often the use of a line or two from a usually appropriate either due to theme (Ruby Tuesday in "Bad") or as a musical reference that the U2 song obviously borrowed from (Not Fade Away, 1969 in "Desire") worked well and enhanced the performance. While Bono has increasingly included more snippets in several key songs, the practice never really got out of hand........ until this tour. Almost every song has often more than one snippet of another song that often wildly distracts from the performance of the U2 song itself.

Anyone else share my opinion?

T.B.

Last night I wish he'd stop mentioning London, but he just kept mentioning it and mentioning it and mentioning it!

A wish doesn't come true if you tell everyone else about it.

I don't think I feel as strongly about it as the original poster, but sometimes it feels like he's just snippeting for snippeting sake.

Who thinks we should just start a random bitch thread? So you can throw all the really really important issues like Edge's mic, snippets, and Bono said "fat ass" into one thread.

*sigh* You're right. I really do not understand why people think that their opinion is worthy starting a new topic while we have PLENTY of bitchthreads in the setlist forum.

Enough with Bono singing. Really, it's unbearable.

They should just play the songs instrumental for 2 hours. What does a band need a singer for, anyway. Bono has sung on too many U2 concerts, IMO. Always hearing the same guy sing the same songs. I've really had enough of that.
