When they showed the video on MTV, the video had subtitles at the bottom of the screen (i.e. "the truth really is out there" spoofing The X-Files). I honestly don't know why they removed them for the Best of DVD. *scratches head*

I wish I had taped it back when it premiered on MTV. *sigh*
i have it on vhs

1. the video is hilarious. i am from kansas city, and the fact that they chose the ghost town-concrete wasteland that is downtown kansas city (if anyone of you has ever driven through it in the middle of the day you know what i mean) is perfect. I always thought that the downtown KC area looked like a postapocalyptic world, i guess U2 must have agreed.

2. i remember in high school (i was a senior when POP came out) U2 wasn't the coolest (i guess they still aren't) people thought POP was a DISCO album (because of Discotheque) and didn't want to hear any of their stuff. But I'll be damned if EVERYONE at my school didn't try to get the day off when they found out that U2 was downtown shooting a video.

3. William S. Burroughs cameo is brilliant (he is from Lawrence, Kansas after all - which is also the home of the University Of Kansas, which is also the home to ME)

4. The live version of the song is easily one of my very favorite U2 moments. The large POPMART screen pitting closeups of BONO and EDGEs faces against one another as they shout dueling "you gotta give it away"s... lame chorus or not, that is a rocking moment. And the final solo is truly sublime. I always think... if LNOE had the popmart ending and MIAMI had the HAPPINESS IS A WARM GUN/POPMART LIVE VERSION ending... my head would explode... (I was going to say the album would be perfect, but it already is...)

5. If you don't get POP, you just need to listen more. Depending on the day, it is easily my favorite U2 album (the other days it is Achtung Baby. Today it is POP)
Brilliant Post

And Last Night On Earth is an extemely relavant song.

WHat I don't understand is that when they came here, Bono was talking about how he wanted to meet God but got sold religion...


and listening to previous bootlegs, I can hear like a video being played... maybe with those funny cartoons that were shown when played live...
