Who here can sing along to Vertigo?

I like to think my voice is fairly strong, but I don't have great range. I simply can't do the chorus (I can feeeeeeel!) without changing the key, and therefore, ruining the song (if i were to perform it live). Does anyone here have the range to do it? What U2 songs are you able/not able to sing? U2, because of Bono's phenomenal range, is a very hard band to sing along to. I WISH I could sing al the way through WGRYWH without changing keys.

Thoughts?

-Mikey

can do Vertigo without any probs...it's Pride that always get me. The best song to sing along to, to prevent any problems, would be Bass Trap.

I can do Vertigo pretty well, I'd say

For some reason I really can't do the beginning part of Ultraviolet.

I'm sure there are plenty of other U2 songs I can't sing either

I can sing "Vertigo" although it's not very easy to do it. The songs I've never been able to sing without changing the key have been:

Pride (In the name of love)
Red hill mining town
Who's gonna ride your wild horses
Stay (Faraway, so close)

My range has definitely decreased over the years, I struggle to sing some u2 songs now that Id have had no problems with in the past...

did anyone else notice how during the elevation tour, Bono changed the way he sang the chorus of the FLY so he wouldn't have to change his own Key!..?

I can sing it perfectly when I'm alone in a sound prrof room, with nobody 100 miles near of me, otherwise I just get shy

we should maybe kind of change this topic slightly....

maybe it should be aimed towards the friends of people that can sing U2 songs.

i.e. "does your friend sing vertigo without changing the key?"

the reason being, a lot of people out there are tone deaf but think they're fantastic singers when in fact they're not - but there's nothing in the world that can change their minds. that dumb Pop Idol programme is proof of that.

singing Edge's parts is way more fun and sometimes more challenging. try doing edge's backing to Streets (the rattle and hum movie version), then do it without any music and without laughing - a game for all the family!! the long winter nights will fly by!

I'm with you guys. As soon as it comes on the radio I can hear (or at least I imagine I can hear, since I turn up the volume so loud) all the doors in my house between me and my family slamming. I just know they're thinking Oh shit, she's going to start singing again... My poor family.

I'm dreaming of singing Party Girl in front of some audience some day. A very underrated song in my opinion. But yes, I can do Vertigo.
