Lord Clayton's Castle.
 
If it's about Adam, let's post it here! Pics, songs, videos, interviews, anything and everything centered around Clayton! (And yes, hopes/dreams/wishes for the new music/tour/etc are encouraged!!!)

For me, well of course I have to post my personal favorites to start the thread engine up. :sexywink:

This has got to be one of my all-time favorite pics of him. Ever. Period.

But for those that know the tale...this is where I first remember seeing him. And this is what stole my innocent young heart.

As much as I could spend hours digging through the Zoo days, including THAT INFAMOUS PHOTO, all the way through Pop, Elevation, Vertigo...

360 just flat out DID it for me. He looked INCREDIBLE every night, and as I posted in a different thread, he can so do it all over again!! :drool::drool:

for a talk subject, I'd like to offer up the best "Adam songs."

I love A Man and a Woman and I was shocked- shocked- at how bland it was in the only live performance at the Clinton foundation. I love Bono and Edge but what a snooze that song was! Then I went back and had a listen and realized the song owes almost all of its groove to Adam.

OH LORD. *swoon*

That song is probably one of the top 10 most overlooked U2 songs!

I remember falling in love with it instantly when Bomb came out and couldn't figure out why, since it wasn't a "rocking" U2 song. And then it dawned on me. Adam's bass is this mysterious force lurking behind not-so-great lyrics and a melody that truthfully, lacked Edge's usual...prowess.

jeevey 08-14-2013 04:30 PM

I actually like the lyric in that song, especially the "Little sister" line which I could listen to all day, and the bridge. "Saw her walkin down the street on Rue St Divine. I thought she was the one for me, but she was already mine. Yeah she was already mine"

But yes, they learned very quickly not to attempt that one without the rhythm section. But I wish they had continued to play it with them! That's a seriously hot bass line.

ClaytonsKitten 08-14-2013 04:47 PM

I was always partial to the "I could never take a chance of losing love to find romance" line.

And on the subject of Adam basslines that make me quiver, a favorite of mine was always "Do You Feel Loved". For oh so many reasons. :drool:

bonocomet 08-14-2013 07:53 PM

:wave: Hellooo Adam's chat and everything else thread.

Hey just have to say i was at that one and only performance of A Man and a Woman, and though it was cool to see, yeah obviously it was a little lacking. Though it was quite hilarious to see Edge and Bono trying to play along with the computer. :D Anyway, that was after the 360 tour, so it might actually mean they might think about trying it next tour, not the other way around. :hmm: I mean I don't know of course, but since they never actually have played it on either of the last tours... something must have made them decide to give it a try. (Unless it was just a request from Chelsea Clinton so they obliged, but still... it might have sparked some hope for the future from them!)

ClaytonsKitten 08-14-2013 08:35 PM

I certainly won't mind them if they bring it out for the new tour. Anything that gives Ad' a chance to "shine" as it were, that's more than okay with me. :sexywink:

And hi Comet! :wave::wave:

jeevey 08-14-2013 10:05 PM

The playing along with the computer was totally dorktastic. But wait, that's Bono/Edge chat. Other favorite Adam songs?

Also, I want to see the Electric Lady hair.

:applaud:So glad to see this thread up and running!

I'll have to agree with that one! The version from the Clinton Foundation is missing the entire bottom...it's foundation. The rhythm track just isn't enough. Adam's bass gives the song it's character. I'd love for them to play this one live but with the rhythm section.

One of my favorite Adam bass lines is from Love Comes Tumbling. I love the melodic bass line contrasting with that snapping thing he's dubbing over it.

jeevey 08-14-2013 10:33 PM

Agreed- I'd love to see them pull that one out on the next tour. I don't get the Atomic Bomb hate over on ETYKIW- I really love a lot of those songs.

bonocomet 08-14-2013 11:03 PM

Oh yes, that's what I guess I was trying to say. The fact that Edge and Bono pulled that song out after the tour, something they had never attempted before at all, is maybe a good sign, that they haven't forgotten the song!

Glad you could join us! :wave:

Adam. Snapping. :giggle: My mind takes that places that it shouldn't. Oh well. That happens FAR too often with him! I'm quite used to it by now. :sexywink:

I dont get the hate for Bomb or NLOTH over there, truthfully. Yes, those albums didn't have the 'punch' that some of the AB or Pop stuff did, but the band isn't a bunch of soon-to-be 30-somethings anymore. The albums were still good overall. Yes, both albums had songs I didn't care for, but that happens at least once or so every album. AB is about the only album that I love every single track on.

I remember once, back when Bomb was new(er), I made a playlist of all these "favorite" U2 songs. And Mr CK looked it over and went, "you're such an Adam girl". Because every song had a strong bassline behind it. Subconsciously, I'd been drawn to him even without realizing it. :lol:

I should dig the cds out...Lil'CK was just pawing through them the other day.

jeevey 08-14-2013 11:33 PM

I'd love to see Adam Playlist!

ClaytonsKitten 08-14-2013 11:54 PM

I'll go pull out the cds tomorrow and see what all is on them. They're in Lil'CK's room and I dont want to risk waking him by rummaging around.
