New U2 Album Title ("Hanover Quay") -- Did I Actually Call It?!?!?

A while ago, I came up with this title, and it appears that the band listened to me! (Or maybe I'm just psychic?) Check out U2log.com, and then check out my old post for proof! (haha, I'm such a geek, but I'm a geek with *great* ability)

If it holds up, and I think it will, it's a great title! U2 fans would know what it is, but a lot of people would be which is fine too, keeps people interested and leads to lots of good questions!

Yeah, where is Roug when we need him? (No, seriously, where is the old boy anyway?)

Back to this title, if U2 do indeed decide to use it, should I get some kind of royalties or at least credit on the album sleeve? I wouldn't ask for much in return, of course. I mean, even just a holiday with the band would suite me fine...

I'm impressed with the title, and also, if the studios do close down, then at least it'll be a way of remembering.... I love them studios!

This certainly is a very fitting title. Hope it sticks.

Haven't the Beatles already used the studio as an album title with Abbey Road? U2 might get the kind of backlash they received with Rattle & Hum. It might seem like treading on sacred ground to some.
I know they never would, but what if they walked across the road apeing the Beatles cover! That would be scary.

Someone mentioned Windmill as a title once. That was pretty cool. It's a slight nod to the studo as well.

With titles like Achtung Baby & All That You Can't Leave Behind, I'd say it will be impossible to guess exactly what they will choose. I'm sure it will be interesting though....

YES! Michael! I remember you suggesting that! I read the working title at u2log this morning and immediately remembered someone on here had already brought it up, but I couldn't remember who. Ha! That's really funny.

Good job Michael!

It is starting to grow on me.

Yes David, I was thinking the same thing too.

i can see lots of confusion with people thinking its an album about U2's alcohol problems.

micahel, about those royalties...remind me to tell you about isaakland sometime

it sounds completely different than any other of their albums.

I really like it!
