Classic Albums: The Joshua Tree @ 08:47 pm

leelee_cakes:
I'm currently feelin: hopeful hopeful
I'm currently hearin: I don't know! That's the problem!

I was watching the Classic Albums: Joshua Tree special, and there was a song that they show a very short snippet of, and I really, really loved it but I don't know what it is. It comes on right after they talk about Larry's drumming improiving when he knows someone is really pushing him. Opens with Edge on the guitar, v. blues/rock. Bono is in a large white shirt, cowboy hat. The only words I hear are "I...I believe in love...". It's Joshua Tree era, based on clothes and haircuts, etc.

I googled it but only came up with "Exit", which is def. not it. Can anyone help me out? That guitar part really caught my attention!

Thanks!
Leelee

I believe that would be God Part II.

It's actually Rattle & Hum era. :) And a great song, at that! I used to have a video of it being played live, but I can't find it anymore.

*goes back to homework*

Yea, now that I know, I can see when I look at the clip. I only had about 10-15 seconds of it, so I mage a wild guess.

I need to get back to my homework too. And yet, here I am. Imagine that.

Yep, definitely "God, Pt. II". Such a great song. Funny you mention that, though, because I had a question about it myself earlier today. :)

See, I thought I remembered seeing something about it as soon as I learned the song title! I love that it references Bruce Cockburn. Going to go listen again now *g*

You haven't heard God Part II until you hear the sensational Lovetown performances. I have about half of the Lovetown shows, and apparently during one I don't have (I think it's a Melbourne one), Edge does such an awesome solo at the end that all Bono can do is scream out "oh my God, Edge, stop it!"

I love the Lovetown Tour so much. Best. Tour. Ever.

Already found it! It was God Pt.II. Thanks though! Now I just need the live concert mentioned in one of the above comments, cause that would make my life!

Actually, God Part II IS technically a Joshua Tree era song; Rattle and Hum has long been touted as a continuation of TJT. The Joshua Tree tour was just so massive and more popular than anyone had ever dreamed, that they felt like they needed to create Rattle And Hum to stuff more Joshua Tree stuff into. Look at the credits & such with your cd inserts, the dates are all pretty much 1987. Even if the new songs weren't put out until Rattle and Hum, they were written & thought of during TJT, and I do believe that footage of God Part II that poster is refering to WAS shot during the TJT era, and I do think that I remember seeing snippets of the song on concert footage from TJT tour, but they never played the full thing? Because they were still workling on it & knew it would be a Rattle and Hum song. Err.. Hope that's right & makes sense!, it's just what I remember about that whole thing.

Ok, I looked through the setlists.. and apparently, the first time God Part II was performed live was in September 1989, which would of made it on the Lovetown tour... So sorry for being sort of misleading. :)
