Bonos Pirate Shanty appreciation

Even though half the song sounds like the B-man trying to bust a hernia...I love the instrumentals and Bono's mournful tone to this song. any thoughts?

I think that album is great. Granted, I haven't listened to it that much, but me likey!

BTW, I think that Jarvis Cocker's contribution (A Drop Of Nelson's Blood) is amazing!

It is fantastic. And Gavin said he listened to the sample of the song once or twice then nailed this in one take. Said it gave everybody goosebumps.

You knuckleheads need to skip the Bono song and get your hands on the Loudon Wainwright III tune "Good Ship Venus."

It's fecking filthy.

And it's a wonderful thing.
