Native Son is U2's Best song EVER!!!!!

The intro is classic U2. It stinks if you haven't heard it yet. What are your feelings about this.

The beat in Vertigo may be a little more up tempo, but the only reason native son wasn't on the album was that some of the lyric could be considered racist. Vertigo was completely neutral.

sorry, its illegal. But you can get it on itunes. Its really worth it. Its definitely got some of Elevation, Until the End of the World, and Mofo in it. I think it might have sprung from Helter Skelter, but that could be stretching it a little.

I like how Native Son seems to have more going on. It keeps me interested. I think they could combine the two songs for one Amazing song.

I hope all the frenetic guitar work in the out-takes (or at least tunes in the same style) makes it into the next album, I think it would be an ideal shift in sound..I'd really like U2 to do their "Ramones" album, lots of energy, catchy riffs, zero bullshit.

that would be great! Tell me if the chords in Native Sun sound similar to those of Crumbs on your Table, or am I just hearing things.

When I listen to "Native Son", I never pay attention to the lyrics. The guitar work in this song is the one that fascinates me the most. It beat out "Vertigo" that's for sure.

dragon. The guitar is awsome. I am happy to see that you agree with me. However, listening to the lyrics, i can see where Bono would not want to continue with the project. Maybe it put him in a state of dizziness, so he renamed the song Vertigo. Did they make a video for Native Son. That would be interesting.

By the way. Merry Christmas to all Christians, or anyone else who celebrates it. I hope Santa was nice.

Native Son is much better. The lyrics are infinitely better. My guess is that either U2 themselves or someone in the U2 circle decided that the NS lyrics were too much, and they replaced them with nonsense lyric that is Vertigo.

if they would have put native son on the album, it wouldn't have been a single...

vertigo is on instead... it is a single... and it's been in the top 40 for 13 straight weeks now...

native son might be "more interesting" than vertigo... but a better song? i think not.
