Sorry to be so sarcastic, but wtf is conversations on a barstool?

btw Tony, might be a surprise to you, but I've only been a fan since January 05 Let's say I learn very quickly, and a year of intereference is good for your collection

You mean you haven't ever heard it? It's possibly the best song Bono and Edge have ever written together. It first appeared on the Short Cuts soundtrack released in 1993 sung by Annie Ross. But there may be even a better version of it.

Download it now!

"Conversation On A Barstool"

I'm tired, so tired I can hardly stand
I can't breathe in the air in this city tonight
It's taken everything I had to give
And now, I just want to get out of here

But I won't be sorry if you won't be
And I don't want your pity or sympathy
But for forty five dollars I can make it
You wait and see

He came from Miami to start out again
I hear that he's back with his mother ill
He told me he loved me and he wanted my child
But you know people change their minds

But I won't be sorry if you won't be
And I don't want your pity or sympathy
But with forty five dollars I can make it
You wait and see

But I won't be sorry if you won't be
And I don't want your pity or your sympathy
But with forty five dollars I can make it
You wait and see

It isn't as if I was just anybody
On Broadway I danced for that Senator
They know me in London and they know me in Paris
I'm only talking because you look like you needed a friend

But I won't be sorry if you won't be
And I don't want your pity or your sympathy
But with forty five dollars
I'm halfway to Miami

I love it when bono sings these kind of ballad type songs. They always turn out really good.
I guess Bono could sing the phonebook to me and i'd enjoy it. i just know he would find a way to make it sound good, and probably quite entertaining too. Hmmm, which names would he make fun of?
My favorite thing is that it would be a very loooong song, he'd just have to sit around for us and sing for hrs and hrs.

I'm still in love with 'In a Lifetime', the duet with Maire from Clannad Does that count?!?!

Bono can't help being a crooner from time to time .. he's a romantic, cuddly Taurean after all

Crooner Bono is REALLY good for a change sometimes. Even though we love the band & he loves the band, it must be refreshing for him to just simply use him voice as an instrument - Not to have to worry about the stress of a big production of a massive, intense song.
