"We thought that we had the answers, it was the questions we had wrong"
Just a question in relation to this line from 11 O'Clock Tick Tock. What is this line talking about? I know (or I think) the song is about London's underground music scene, or something like that, I was just wondering what is the significance of this line? Or am I looking to deep into? I just really like this song, and the way it is performed.__________________
Also, is there a studio version? When was the last time it was done live?

1. I think you might be looking too deep.__________________
2. There are two studio versions of it. One from the single of the same name and an extended version on the Pride single.

That's one of my favourite U2 lines ever.
And Screwtape's right with the studio and live details. 11 O'clock Tick Tock used to be a live staple - it was played twice at some Boy shows and was a sort of "Streets" of its time until the end of the UF Tour. Since the end of 1985, it has been done 12 times: once on the Joshua Tree Tour, twice on Lovetown, twice on the ATYCLB promo tour, and seven times on Elevation.

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."

Every time I use the lyric in my MSN nickname I get great comments from everyone, everyone loves it.

11 O'clock Tick Tock single - 3:47
Pride single - 4:14
And Here Is The Young Man compilation - 4:03
But they're all just different edits of the same take.
