Every Breaking Wave

I just heard Every Breaking Wave and was surprised to not see a thread about it in Setlists and Songs.

It's so incredibly gorgeous, I thought it deserved one. U2 are clearly still at the peak of their powers, when you hear a song like this.

Usually it takes me a few listens to fully get into a U2 song and "get" it. But this one melted me first go - I hope it's still around, with full band, in Summer 2011.


Edit: Having heard it a 2nd and 3rd time, it feels like the most beautiful thing I've ever heard! You thank (whomever or whatever you thank) for music when you hear a song like this.

Good stuff. My favorite of the new songs they have been playing. Excited to hear what they do with it full band.

I like it a lot too. Although its not the soaring anthem that I thought Bono said it was. Its more in the realm of With Or Without You and Love is Blindness.

I hope it gets an official release.

Phenomenal song. Stunning lyrics. My initial reaction was actually ANGER that they kept this off on NLOTH. It so completely belonged there. It should be the track after FEZ-BB. Whats up with all these 11 song albums!??!?!

(esp. with the line 'talking to an answer phone' which conjures up Unknown Caller.)

It's a beautiful piece of work. I listened to it a lot and it's really haunting.

I think the full band version of EBW will be even better than this.

I think it is my favorite of all the new songs too. Although, I do enjoy Glastonbury and the other night, I listened to North Star while laying in the grass and looking up at the night sky, that was very beautiful.

I saw an article yesterday with an early tracklisting of where it was to be placed.

1 Magnificent (5:44)
2 Every Breaking Wave (4:13)
3 Moment Of Surrender (7:12)
4 Unknown Caller (6:06)
5 Crazy Tonight (4:16)
6 Get On Your Boots (3:25)
7 Stand Up (Comedy) (?:??)
8 Breathe (4:42)
9 Born (5:58)
10 No Line On The Horizon (4:11)
11 Cedars of Lebanon (?:??)


^ this was from a u2.com video/picture of the board...probably the one with Gavin. Going off of this, it looks like WAS replaced EBW.

I'm really loving this song. It gives me pit in my stomach for some reason.

My god, after getting this song under my skin for a few days, it is clear that it has so much potential.

I think its one of the most sincere songs they've written in a while. Cant wait to see what they do with it
