Have I turned into a big girl's blouse recently or what?

Whenever I see one of the live recordings of Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own at the middle section my eyes get blurry and trickly and my throat lumpy. Does this happen to any other males out there or am I turning into a big girl's blouse?

Me eyes have got wet before on occasion such as the transition from Bad to Streets or AIWIY to Streets but Sometimes gets me every damn time.

What a song. It's not so much that its sad or overly sentimental, just heart-wrenchingly bloody honest. Put this with One Step Closer and its for me as powerful as anything U2 have ever done.

I am moved whenever I specifically pay attention to Bono climbing the register toward "SING" . When it's on in the background, I don't notice it so much.

Initially, I was moved by the "You don't have to go it alone" sing song, but now it's just when he sings:

CAN
YOU
HEAR
ME
WHEN
I
S-I-I-I-I-N-N-N-N-G!

My father is still alive, but the sentiment is true for most of us, we want our parents to be proud of us. It seems that even with all that he has accomplished, his Dad still hadn't told him how proud he was of him. Or if he told him, it still hadn't sunk in.

I find it emotional to watch him perform it, like on SNL or MTVJammed. I can hear the pain in his voice when he sings the "when I siiiiinnnngg" part. I just lost my grandfather, who I was very close to so it hits home with me.

I was just thinking about a video concept for SYCMIOYO video. I know they are filming it now, but this thought just occured to me. I think this video would be really powerful if it was simliar to the video for "One". The video where Bono is in a smokey bar singing/talking directly into the camera. Can you picture Bono singing these words about his father in a controlled, simple and direct way? I think it would be amazing.

Which is why this is a classic U2 song, even in it's infancy.

My Dad, upon hearing this song asked when they made it. I told him that it was on the new album. His eyebrows went up, because I think he thought it sounded familiar.
