New song - 46664

You can go to www.46664.com to find the number for your country to call to hear the new song - the catch is you pay $1/min for the phone call. I did, I'm desperate for anything new that is remotely related to U2. Ended up being about a 5 minute call. Don't see it becoming a number 1 hit, but I think it was worth a donation to a good cause for a listen

46664 is a name of the concert that will take place next month at the Green Point Stadium in Cape Town, SA. It's made to raise AIDS awareness. Bono will perform there as well as Queen and Beyonce Knowles.46664 is also Mandela's prison number. He spent his sentence on an island nearby Cape Town and that's why they used it as a symbol.

i still have trouble comprehending that Bono sings on a new song, that he quite possibly had a hand in writing, and no one gives a shit.

isn't new u2 what people care about?
isn't that basically what this is?

oh well. doesn't his new haircut look sexy?

unfortunately I cannot listen to the song because i have no credit card. I just heard a little clippityclip, and I can say with absolute authority that this is a lot better than 'American Prayer' but then, that's not saying much now is it?

I just heard a 30 second clip from the website, it seems pretty weak, but who knows. I'm just I'll give the whole song a shot.

Maybe it's because I actually was there for a live performance, but I still like American Prayer better at the present time.

Thanks for the explanation, everyone.


Maybe I should go read the news section more often.

Uhh...how is Queen performing? Are they reanimating Freddie Mercury's corpse? That'd be cool.

they'll probably have some of the singers there take turns on lead... perhaps bono will sing a few tunes... that would deffinetly be very very nice...

Bono singing "Tie Your Mother Down"? Could work.
