Ok I hope this is the right place to post this....

I was looking in Spin magazine and it says that part of Vertigo was riffed off of the Supreme's song You keep me holding(hanging) on(something like that)...

I don't hear it at all!? Does anyone else?

the chorus has the same chord structure and a similar melody. try singing the supremes song over the chorus of vertigo and you will see it work quite well (for a little while but then it changes).

Mr. the Edge...He got busted on camera checking his Blackberry for quite a while during the O'Jays performance at the RnR HOF...wonder if we'll see that on VH-1...
