Its time to unwrap a fresh tape for the VCR and work on my trigger finger.

I spotted this earlier. Radiohead did the same CSI thing before their last new album. Relatively short clips, but pretty cool nonetheless.

How did this work? Is it in the show or an ad or something?

Their last one was one of the best things I've ever seen in my life, and I'm not exaggerating. When Bono leapt off the stage and into the crowd...oh, man. Nobody had ever done something like that before in 30 years of SNL. So awesome.

Let's hope their next appearance is even half as electrifying.

I didn't mind the Apple commercial, but music in CSI sort of bothers me.

I don't watch CSI (am I the only one?) but from what i remember the songs were mixed in the show, sometimes at the end, sometimes after a commercial break, etc. People made Mp3's of the clips. All clips were directly from the album, so this should be studio quality.

Thanks for that! I'll just tape the entire show.

yep, Without or Without You was played on probably the most memorable show in the sitcom Friends, when Ross beaks up with Rachel (and they didn't get back together for another 6-7 seasons, on the very last episode)

Because with Apple it was direct....this is closer to selling out, in my opinion. Of course I am probably wrong.

I'm quite certain they played Walk On in its entirety on the final Friends tribute before the last show too.

There was a show on CBS in the late '70s/early '80s called WKRP in Cincinnati, about -- obviously -- a Cincinatti radio station. I'm having trouble finding information on this, but there was a definite U2 connection on that show; either one of the DJs played "I Will Follow" in one of the episodes, or they had a poster hanging in the studio, or something. Can anyone clarify?

I understand you feel that way, me I've always liked hearing good songs on good shows. Even the snots in Radiohead do this...

CSI Episode 1 - Vertigo
CSI Episode 2 - All Because Of You
CSI Episode 3 - City Of Blinding Lights
CSI Episode 4 - Vertigo (Jackknife Lee Remix)

Probably.

I'm thinking something more moody, such as One Step Closer or SYCMIOYO. Of course, i've never heard either....

Maybe one of these episodes of CSI will be inspired about the stolen disc.
