I really don't understand why they're releasing a new version of RHMT. It's perverse. Bono's voice is still good, but why in God's name would they beg a comparison between his current, weaker voice and the peak of his strength? And do they think anyone is going to listen to it more than a couple of times? It's like that remake of the Magnificent Seven...yeah, already forgot about that, didn't you?

Isn't there anything else that they could have been doing other than redoing the vocals for an old song that doesn't need updating? Like, oh finishing the new album? Or literally anything else? This is one of the strangest bands.

The band redoing RHMT is part damage control and part promotion for the tour. Bono's voice doesn't compare to that era (he can't sing like that anymore and he knows it) and it was a popular song that still gets rotation here and there on the old rock stations.

would make more sense to add a new, finished vocal to Deep In The Heart. Then they could market it like Sweetest Thing. TJT bside, finally finished!!

Yep. And that's fine. Do a new version that some fans might like and will prepare for whatever version they do that gives his vocals some leeway live. Nobody gets hurt.

Well, at least with the redo of RHMT we can safely say, they are NOT looking to score a hit!

Eh. At least they're not redoing a well known JT single. I don't mind.

If anything it'll probably be an "On This Day" mention of The Joshua Tree's release or Featured Article in celebration of it's 30 years anniversary.

EDIT: Nothing to get too excited about but "Mothers of the Disappeared" is going to be tomorrow's featured article. Link here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipe.../March_9,_2017

Ha, roger that.

I do wonder if we'll get RHMT 2.0 tomorrow.

I'm trying to get the Joshua Tree article in shape to nominate it for promotion to Featured Article status (it'll probably be a few months before that's likely). Anyone that wants, feel free to help!

You might want to have a paternity test. Bono spent some time in Wisconsin a little over a year ago.
