yeah pretty much. Lennon was awsome but Bono's Bono. I predict this thread maybe getting nasty or at the very least extremely opinionated.

lol, the irony here is overwhelming.

Bono is to open Live8. He cannot decide which song to start the show with. He ends up choosing a classic that John Lennon co-wrote with Paul McCartney. BUT WHO NEEDS JOHN LENNON WHEN YOU'VE GOT BONO?

The answer to your question is, obviously: Bono.

I might just be stupid but I don't see the irony. Where's the irony in covering a song?

That may be the best job of taking a quote out of context I've ever seen.

You could be a journalist

It's ironic because John Lennon helped to write the song and the original poster ridiculously claimed "who needs John Lennon when you've got Bono?" Unless Bono could travel back in time and write the song...then yeah, you'd need Lennon.

Anyway, we have a troll!

....And humour is lost on you(note the smiley)

You must have a bit of a sense of humour I guess. You started the thread

O.k. I get it. Bono needed Lennon to write the song, so he could perform it. You weren't calling me the troll were you?

I'm not taking the piss, i honestly think Bono's voice suits the song better than Lennons. Ok, Lennon wrote it, but Bono sings it better. He sang it with passion, 'Desire', and even outsang McCartney on the day.

I'd have to disagree with you Final Straw that Bono's voice suits the song better and also Bono is almost 20 years(I think) younger than McCartney not to mention he's always been a better singer. So it wouldn't be surprising to hear Bono out sing Paul on that day or any day.

I wouldn't say Bono's a better singer than McCartney at all. His vocal on the original studio recording is utterly brilliant.

I said ON THE DAY his voice was better. Nothing to do with the original version.
