Whatever happened to the new U2 song "We Love You"?

This was a song played only once in an Elevation gig in Belgium if I remember right. It was like their closing song.

First, I'd like to ask: was this a U2 song? Or was someone able to dig it up and figure out that it was a cover song done by U2?

Second, if it was an original U2 song - is it anywhere in the new album? Or whatever happened to it?

Thanks.

Cheers,

J

It was completely improvised for Edge's birthday as a one-off.

Total ad-lib.

It was OK. Musically sounded somewhere between ATYCLB and MDH (guess that makes sense).

But can you imagine how the fans felt?

That's what I always took it as. I didn't ever expect it to become anything more.

It was a total improv, I thought maybe a clue was when Bono sang the line "gonna make it up as we go along"

But yeah, improvised, it was just Bono singing " cuz we love you" and there was a nice bit of Edge towards the end, but other than that it's not really worth a download.

Heh, I like how you refered to it as "new" when it was played 4 years ago!

Oddly enough I still have the mp3 of this song, and it's an alright song I guess considering that it was totally improvised apparently.

Tom or David could you please send this to me

greetie@gmail dot com

I was at the concert but I don't have any mp3 of it yet. It was the second concert in Antwerp (6th of august)

This song wasn't the closing song however.
Someone in the front rows apparently yelled happy birthday to Edge just before the break and when they came back onstage Bono just started singing this made-up song.
He said something about celebrating Edge's birthday all month long

It sucked... I guess that's why we haven't heard anything about it. Nice sentiment though...
