it's in the eeee's... miiiiiiracle... the person singing the "eeeeeaaa" part in miracle is the exact same person who sings "i heeear your voice." so unless you're trying to tell me that edge sings the entire song, it's deffinetly bono.

listen to it again with headphones....its unmistakeable. Edge carries his 's' sound longer than Bono does. Trust me, its the Edge. Or, just wait for the video then.

Note the italics. There's your proof it's Edge. If he were only doing backing vocals, he'd be credited with Larry (and what's with Bono being credited with backing vocals?).

And if you can't tell that it's Edge, I really do have to worry about your hearing. The "Beneath the noise" verse is CLEARLY sung by a voice different to the voice that sings the following chorus.

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."

I've really got nothing to add here, but just chalk up one more vote for the Edge. No question, it is definitely him. Didn't notice until I read it on this forum, but after relistening, you can definitely tell it's him.

yup...Edge is the additional vocal (verse...and whoever brought up Bono being the mother and Edge being the son, that's BRILLIANT. it all makes sense now!). Bono and Larry are singing the "ooooooh yeeeeeahs" during the bridge, and Bono is most defenitely singing "God I need your help tonight" (thank you to all who agree with me. You are officially declared spiffaliscious to the max, y0.)

Adam should sing again. That spoken thing at the end of Your Blue Room? That's hot, man.

i've conceded... you can tell durring the live performance of miracle drug... edge's voice isn't as powerful as bono's... the part is edge singing, not the b-man.

well you could have just listened to those of us who figured it out already. It wasnt hard with a pair of headphones and a set of ears.
