ISS vs ISS

So which would you prefer?

I'd much rather one of UF's best songs, personally. Or, hell, any song.

I'm all for the space station thing.

It's so insane and pure Bono-megalomania - ZooTv for the new millenium - instead of wartorn Sarajevo, we're going live to outer space, live to the future. It seems like an idea born from the "Kiss the future" concept and I was really blown away that they did it.

But Indian Summer Sky would also be awesome

I would gladly take Indian Summer Sky over that space chat thing.

they have something that could be incredibly cool, and they do what? sign an astronaut up to the ONE campaign.

it could be multiple shades of awesome. but instead it makes me cringe.

See, to me, the Sarajevo thing was powerful - and powerfully disturbing. The ISStation thing is just pointless and wastes a valuable song slot. I hope that at future gigs, it's at least done with a greater degree of brevity. That would help it.

Maybe they should do something else than talking about the One campaign, I haven't seen a video of it - but the concept is mindblowing.
Though I don't wanna see it at every show.

Have you thought about how it's meant to be next to Unknown Caller? I think I see the song differently now, in light of this link-up, and this flirtation with God/mankind searching for answers/outer space/spirituality-kind-a-thing in fact renders it totally valid.
Sarajevo might have been more powerful, I wasn't there, I don't know, but this actually makes perfect sense to me in the context of the show.

The mask thing is way worse than this.

The in me says Space Chat but it has to be Indian Summer Sky. ISS was one of the best songs on the TUF Tour and should be brought back.

I'm going to hold off on my vote. I want to wait and see if they receive transmission from David Bowie's nipple at later shows. That would make my decision.

Do you have one really freaky sequin space suit, man?
Or do you have several ch-ch-ch-ch-changes?

Duh, I just now realized probably why they're doing IALW. "Man takes a rocket ship into the sky..."

By logging onto Guinness you could become one of the first passengers to venture 2500mph into space with Virgin Galactic, to experience drinking a pint of Guinness in a bar built 70m deep under the ocean, or to witness an intimate live studio performance by the Black Eye Peas.

And oh, given how much I just laughed hearing what the other three asked the guys at ISS, I firmly prefer Space Chat.

Those were the most hackneyed, forced jokes ever.

U2, don't try humour.
