I heard it this evening on Virgin Radio UK, it sounds smoother and a little more Edge influenced than the original cover...Edge's trademark chorused delay here and there is noticable (whether he played a part I have no idea). Bono sings each part at a slightly different key..almost like a conversation between himself, and breaks out his vocal chords a bit during the "whats going on, eh, whats going on" (ala Britney Spears portion, but with more style). I have no idea where you can find it online, I have no idea how new it is, whether this is old news to everyone else

I guess that meant 3 days worth of Travis, Stereophonics, Robbie Williams, Dido, and Shaggy...over and over and over.. ..sounds like it was worth it though

I just had the misfortune of seeing the video on MuchMusic, and I must reiterate how amazingly better U2's version is! There's just no comparison!

I thought it was very moving at the Hamilton concert.. especially the "father father" part. The other version's just a horrid messy jumble.
