(Nearly) Hidden message on HTDAAB CD

Well I got my Ltd. Ed. package in the post this morning and was delighted to find the CD sounds so much better in my car than the leaked version of the album that I downloaded and burned.

Anyway, on closer examination of the CD it says "MISS YOU SUGAR" on the back side of the CD (i.e. the playing CD not the coloured side) in the middle along with the serial numbers etc.

This might be some sort of last minute dedication or it might be the printing company?

Im so confused...

What does the Limited edition have in it? The DVD?

I have a version that has the CD and DVD.

I have a box set that has the book, CD and DVD.

But nowhere do I see a Limited Edition number like on the Best Ofs



or is the number the following at the bottom of the cardboard wrapper:

"B0003614-00"


AND...what the heck does this mean...at the very bottom of same wrapper on the back side:

" EXTRA LINE IS NEEDED..."

Sugar represents sweet songs, sweet-radio friendly songs to please the radio and the listeners.

On ATYCLB, U2 were on an ambitions exploratory journey - hence they took massive risks and failed to make any sweet sugar-coated songs. The last time they made sweet stuff was with POP which was in 1997.

Now with HTDAAB, U2 have rediscovered their original sweet sound from a bygone era which is Achtung and before. And since their last sugary album was 1997's POP, they haven't made any sugar until this album which is 2004 now. So that's 7 years, 8 months and 20 days! That sure is enough time to miss "sugar."

Now U2 have made a trimphant return to their sugary sound after the bold yet bittersweet ATYCLB.

Cheers,

J

I don't quit get your query in the first sentence.

As for sarcasm, I don't think U2 intended any sarcasm when they put that hidden message in the cd. But that's just what I think. Perhaps U2 also put sarcasm there. Hope you can elaborate since you seem to have uncovered an interesting twish to the hidden message by ascribing sarcasm to U2.

Cheers,

J

MISS YOU SUGAR = THE SWEETEST THING

If only that was true, then we;d see another "sweetest thing" kind of song in the future.

Perhaps Best of u2 2000 - 2010

You guys have got it all wrong!!! I am the only one who has uncovered the true meaning of "Miss You Sugar"= the true inner sanctum.
"Miss You Sugar" is obviously an encrypted code. If you take the numeric value of each letter in "Miss You Sugar", you will come up with "13,9,19,19(miss) 25,15,21(you) 19,21,7,1,18(sugar)". Now that we have it in numeric form, we can uncover the true meaning of this encryption. Since "Miss You" is the action part of the statement and "Sugar" is the descriptive part, it only makes logical sense to divide the numeric values of "miss you" into "sugar". If you do that, you come up with the important number of "72,431". If we then take this number further and divide it by the total amount of letters(12) we get the very special number of "6036". Why is this number special you ask? Well this just happens to be the exact age of the oldest human relic excavated in ancient Mesopotamia. Mesopotamia also just happens to be modern-day Iraq and the location of the ancient garden of Eden!!!! What U2 is trying to say here is that they miss the sweet ancient sugar that was available in the Garden of Eden. They dislike the current war in Iraq and want everyone to miss the sweet sugar of the garden that once existed in that war-torn region of the middle east.

I think we all could learn something from this; Earth could be a spended place. It could be like the Garden of Eden was, without violence and sin. All we need is to want and miss it!
