U2 and Ipod

The iPod revolution has really affected my U2, listening. I recently bought one (and no not the U2 one ) and because of it I find my self filling those "inbetween places" in my day (train, car, yardwork) with music. And I have noticed a blatent difference between the "CD U2" and the "iPod U2".

Now if anything u2 is more acessable. We all know U2 is much more of an atmosphere band then a singles band. In their case, the whole is better then the parts.

However sometimes the whole just wont do. After alittle while line-ups get old and you just want to put some of your favorite songs together.

Now I can do that. I can put "I will follow" next to "Vertigo" and so on (it makes for exciting mixes). Anyone ever turn on a song listen half way and find them selves humming another one?

And if I want that usual progression between songs I can still have it.

Also with all my collections of u2 singles cds, i can have them all in one place!

Has the ipod made you love u2 more too?

I just got my Mom an iPod mini for her birthday coming up and I have started loading it up with U2, Elvis, Beatles, doo-wop, Motown, classical and all her other favorite stuff. I have been using it just to make sure all the songs are ok and there is no clipping or anything. Well, I am convinced that I must have one. It is freaking life changing to have all your favorite songs at your fingertips to listen to at any time you want. It is unbelievable. And yeah, I definitely enjoy music more since I have been "testing" it out for her... LOL I'm going to have alot of trouble giving it up next week!
Yeah, I love U2 and especially Elvis more now that I've been using an iPod. Nothing like In The Ghetto or Kentucky Rain in the middle of the night in bed. Must get myself an iPod for Christmas this year, definitely a U2 one. Hopefully the price will have come down on it by then.

This is the worst post in the history of this forum. One hopes it is sarcastic, but I am sure it is not.

Sellout: One who has betrayed one's principles or an espoused cause.

U2's cause is to make their music accessible to as many as possible. This may be one of their most forward thinking ideas of their career.

I wonder how many times in U2's career they've "sold out", I guess after every huge album huh?

Hmmm vivacolumbia? I find it interesting that the southern american fans find U2's latest business ventures and music so shameful. I can understand their feelings, but I can't justify their beliefs.

Then again I'm a "Fat American", so maybe it's the philosphy of it all? Strange...

If the iPod is a sell-out because U2 found an unique way to advertise and promote their music, then I guess U2 also sold-out with radio and TV spots, the whole video thing, touring, t-shirts, etc.

Bastard U2's! How dare they promote their music?!

yeah, it's called the Live Under Brooklyn Bridge EP...

I love my iPod. I can take my entire music collection anywhere to hear whenever I want; I can skip from song to song, make playlists... it's wonderful. I think, if possible, the iPod has made me love music as a whole more, U2 included. I very rarely leave the house without Bono (my iPod ). I don't think I could live without it and I don't understand how I functioned before it!! And I think U2's partnership with Apple was a brilliant move and other artists should take note, jump on the bandwagon and remember, U2 was cool before you were

Er...what I meant to say was...

OGM U2 IZ GAY 4 SELIGN OWT 2 IPODS!11// IDOPS R DUM!//1 I HAIT DEM1111

so you get one person who's a complete nutjob threatening to kill u2 over the ipod...

then you get the other extreme where people automatically feel the need to defend their favourite band from a source they say is completely ridiculous.

surely there's common ground here.
