I Just Saw The Video For Hands...

It's a mix of band playing in a room and scenes from the movie. The movie scenes are in color, and the band is in black&white (but with a brown touch to it, like the dress-up video for One). I think any stills will look amazing. Could be one of their best videos, as far as "band" shots are concerned.

They look VERY good: dressed pretty much the usual, Bono (with glasses, could be the kind he wore on the tour) playing acoustic guitar/singing, Edge on keyboards/singing and Larry and Adam of course on bass and drums. They're all in a room, and the camera sort of spins around and shares angles of all of them. At the end of the operatic bit, you can see a shot of Bono belting, and right at the end, at the "new york skyline" verse there is a beautiful shot of New York - with the towers.

I started watching a half or a minute before the "I took your kiss" part, and Bono has a smile or two. *edit* There is a window (or it could be artificial light) behind Larry and some sort of shine comes from that corner of the room.

Uhhh...that just sounds like the Hands video that was on the DVD, only with movie shots and a New York pic cut in. You sure it was official? I could make something like that given 20 minutes, I'm just wanting to be sure that it's official, considering someone showed the exact thing about a month and a half ago.

I don't know, I saw it on VIVA TV (this German TV a la MTV). It is true that it was at the start of a movie programme, and the video said "Hands...Gangs of New York OST."

Seemed real to me.

I love that video... I just wish they would have done it with the soundtrack mix of the song, which is the strongest mix, IMO

I think the movie clips fit very well with the song, I would like to have seen this version also included in the DVD, but hey, yo can't have everything hehe.

I really like the Soundtrack version of the song more than the Best of version. Both are pretty much the same though. Both are good.

the soundtrack version has more of an explosion towards the end, the part at the end of the movie. perfect, if you ask me.

Yeah, the end of that movie was cool. I almost got up and delivered an ass-kicking in the theater because a bunch of people just jumped off and started to leave when it was showing that section?

Who just gets up and takes off when it's showing a 9/11 memorial? I got pretty pissed. People are idiots.

yeah the morons who were there when i saw the movie got up as soon as it was obvious that the movie was over. me, on the other hand, i tried to stay until the song was over and got thrown out by one of the people working there

and of course i had to go at 1:15 in the afternoon, so it was all senior citizens

Hey IWasBored, there's a cool interview over on www.rollingstone.com with Daniel Day Lewis. Thought you'd like it.

Oops, yes you do. Still getting use to this format. Somewhat new at this, but dancing a fast as I can.




Stay and the night would be enough.

glad that people think i rule

u2popmofo, you definetly rule, that's not even a question. especially cos i tend to gauge how much people rule on their taste in music. you've definetly got excellent taste in music.
