get Funeral - The Arcade Fire is amazing - I can't wait to see what their next album will be like

I sometimes feel a little like David Bowie in the way I hype this band up to anyone who asks me what new music to buy

I think we could all do with feeling like Bowie every now and then...the man is a God after all

The song after the show end, Still Water by Daniel Lanois has Larry Mullen on drums and Adam Clayton on bass.

Funerals is a must have album as well as Acadie.

I was telling Chizip before the show on 9/20, I have a total Pavlovian response to hearing "Wake Up". I could be walking along in 95 degree weather (and we've had a lot of that this summer in Chicago), sweating my a*s off, that song comes on my ipod and I get cold chills all over and all the hairs on my whole body stand up....because to me that song will always be associated with U2 hitting the stage in a few minutes...

I think I will get that feeling whenever I hear any of the songs played in the break between opening act and U2...but especially Wake Up. Here's a partial list of those songs, if anyone can add to it, please do, in my post-U2 HEAVEN week I can't remember them all.

Rebel Rebel
Mr. Brightside
Rock the Casbah
In Between Days
Float On

I went to Toronto 4 and hearing Wake Up was amazing! I was so excited I called a friend who's a big Arcade fan and had him listen to the song. Just hearing 20 thousand people singing "oh, oh,oh, oh, oh!!!" was mind-blowing.

And then the seque from Wake Up to City of Blinding Lights---words cannot describe.

Incidentally, I have several friends that respect U2 but are not fanatics like I am. As soon as they heard that Arcade Fire were opening the Montreal shows they wanted to gp to the concerts. One friend mentioned he would pay the 160$ ticket just to watch the opening act! He was kidding of course....

The Montreal shows will be awesome. I'm sure one of the few times an arena will be full or almost full to hear the opening act.

And for those that haven't already, please get "Funeral". Amazing album!
