I'd really like to TALK about Xanax and Wine and Levitate

I'd really like to have some "private conversations" about these 2 tracks. Away from the "mess" this place has become "recently". Send me an email at

brau1 at yahoo dot com

Let me know what you think, and I'll let you know what I think.

Xanax and Wine is fantastic. I would place it somewhere between Are you gonna wait forever and Mercy in termes of quality. I have not listened to levitate very much so I can't comment on it.

Mercy -> Xanax and Wine -> Fast Cars
Levitate -> Wild Honey, Miracle Drug (and maybe an inspiration for Elevation?)

both great songs. Bono's vocals need work on Xanax, but i know it wasn't the finished product, obviously, with the release of Fast Cars.

i really like the song "Love You Like Mad", btw.

Hmmm. I' had some good "conversations" with people regarding X&W and Levitate. If anyone else whom hasn't "conversed" with me about these 2 tracks wants to, send me a email:

brau1 at yahoo dot com

I'd also love to discuss Love You Like Mad and Smile.

One of my favorite lyrics ever is Tool from Ænima:

"don't just call me negative, TRY AND READ BETWEEN THE LINES."

remined me of X&W. maybe not.

Oh, I get it, these tracks really mean something to you and you would only feel comfortable discussing your reactions to them in private. I will send you an email.

I'd like to converse about them too (nanitram@hotmail.com), but apparently I will have to wait until iTunes deems it necessary to move north of Buffalo.

Unfortunately it looks like some bozo has decided to release the song Xanax and Wine to the general public, giving a bad name to all of us who like to pay for our music. The offending url is [download link removed]

I have already reported this to the RIAA and I suggest you do the same, here is their site:

I can't believe this. He keeps posting new ones [download link removed]. Does anyone know what we can do to get this taken down as quickly as possible? I doubt the RIAA are even open again until next Monday. Maybe they have some sort of emergency hotline that is open even on holidays? I tried looking on their website but was not able to find one.

No download links or requests in any form, please. This thread is for discussion of the songs only. Thanks.

You bunch of nazi's. Downloading every HTDAAB track while it wasn't released yet, and now putting someone in trouble for offering these rare tracks? I like to hear them on yousendit or somenting and when i like them, maybe buying them on i-tunes.

ya know... yea... people should buy the digital box set... but to report someone to the RIAA? that's not cool... not cool at all. how Lars of you.




as for Xanax and Wine... the chorus is too long. if the chorus was a good 10-15 seconds shorter, the song would be great. but unfortunatly it's not... so fast cars is still better, by default.

Please tell me you're joking.
