Bono's extensive injuries revealed @ 07:28 am

volare:
We all heard he "injured his arm" in a bicycling crash per the band's statement, but the truth of it is far more grisly and serious. Statement under cut for the easily squicked. Send him prayers, good vibes or whatever you believe in for healing quickly and without complication...

omgCollapse )

note bene I'm an EMT so I can unfortunately picture exactly what all that looked like and how much freaking pain he had to have been in :(

u2 album question @ 11:11 am

films:
Was thinking It would been great if U2 would have put out Songs of Innocence/Experience as a double album so it would more like a journey of songs from Innocence to Experience.
What do you think of this idea?

canadanne:
Now that the new album's been out for almost a fortnight, does anyone want to have a go at ranking the tracks in order of preference, with your favourite song at the top?

Spoiler cut in case anyone is waiting for the physical release!Collapse )

Rowan @ 11:12 pm

scruby:
The new album made me think of Rowan, who was a huge U2 fan and a part of this community. She died in 2012. I met her once when I flew to England to see a U2 concert at Wembely. She also went to the same concert but we didn't meet there.

She loved U2 so much and it was great meeting her and talking to her about the band.

I wish so much she was here with us now and could listen to the album. Maybe she is listening to it somewhere.

RIP Rowan.

Song Of The Day @ 07:31 pm

canadanne:
Sad news today that Tommy Ramone, the last of the original Ramones has died. U2 are longtime fans of the punk pioneers, and while I was thinking about that, I realised this great track had never been featured on Song Of The Day... so here it is!

Beat On The Brat

In February 2002, U2 won Best Live Act at the annual NME Awards, also known as the Brat Awards (as opposed to the Brit Awards). For their acceptance speech video, they performed the appropriately-titled Beat On The Brat from the Ramones' eponymous 1976 debut album. (Adam wasn't there, so his technician Stuart Morgan played bass while standing behind a cardboard cutout of him, LOL!) Their cover was released a year later on the compilation album We're A Happy Family: A Tribute To Ramones, raising money for the Lymphoma Research Foundation.

Russian song @ 11:26 pm

canadanne:
I would like to find out the name of the Russian song that the Zoo Baby sings just before Daddy's Gonna Pay For Your Crashed Car on the 1993 tour. I've seen a few people stating that's it's called 'Le Rocher sur la Volga' or 'The Cliff', from the album Lenin's Favourite Songs, and it is certainly true that the introductory fanfare (which also precedes the track on Zooropa) is from that song - you can hear it on YouTube. However, I'm not entirely convinced that the vocal is from the same song? It's hard to tell because I don't speak Russian, but I've listened a bunch of times and I just don't hear any part where the melody or lyrics seem to match.

Can anyone confirm that 'The Cliff' is indeed being sung on the Sydney video, or suggest what else it could be? It would be very useful if any Russian-speaking fans are able to transcribe the words they hear.

Ordinary Love article @ 03:58 pm

canadanne:
I really like this article about how Ordinary Love could be interpreted as a great gay anthem. Funnily enough I thought the other new U2 song this year, Invisible, sounded like a great asexual anthem! Seems Bono hasn't lost his touch for writing lyrics that resonate with people in many different ways, perhaps unintentionally. :)
