the "Achtung mood"

A friend of mine told me that during Milwaukee Wave games they used to play Lady with the Spinning head during the lazer show before the game. He said it really wasn't much of a pump-up song. I said it was if you're in the "Achtung mood." For the life of him he doesn't understand this concept. I tried telling him that this type of mood is where you just want to yell Achtung! and then dance around like a fly. I even said the same type of mood is in Vertigo. He still fails to comprehend this mood. Does anyone know what I'm talking about? I find in a lot of U2 songs, especially ones off Achtung Baby convey this energetic mood. Am I just crazy?

No, you're not crazy. I know what you mean, I've felt it too.
Maybe that means we're both crazy.

Yeah, but you don't feel it in Zoo Station? For me, that song is a good means of transportation to the Achtung mood. It's a great intro to Achtung Baby.

Interesting..Is there a difference between an Achtung mood and a Pop mood? Or do you consider hmtmkmkm more of an Achtung song?

Even though it was released 4 years after AB, I consider it more of an Achtung song. I don't know, maybe it's just me.

I think the pop mood was more, well, pop(aren't I great with words?), and the achtung mood is more of a sexy one.

I get it. There must be a difference: kind of dark and sexy vs. dark and flashy

Thanks! For some reason I'm really amused by this.

So it's also: slick substance with soul expressionism vs. slick synthetic impressionism

yeah, Zoo Station is a good intro to AB but I don't like very much the distortion and the effects on Bono's voice. The same happens in Mofo and HMTMKMKM; cool songs, but have the same problems

btw, EBTTRT and MY are IMO the songs that better represent the achtung mood. Ultra-violet and The Fly also...
