"Down All The Days?" @ 04:43 pm

hapavox:
Just noticed in my boot copy of 'U2 BBC Studios Sessions 2000'(taken from BBC Radio 10-23-00) that Bono unveiled a lyric or two that may have been taken from an unreleased song from the Achtung Baby recording sessions called, "Down All The Days". The snippet takes place after the final chords of "Beautiful Day" have been played. The whole studio is silent. Then, Bono sings:

I've been loving you for a long time
Down all these years
DOWN All The Days...


Anybody else with this recording catch this? I believe it's another example of Bono's continuing role as the "Mother Teresa of Abandoned Songs". I expect a good remainder of the unreleased stuff from the ATYCLB sessions to pop up as future B-Sides or possible tracks for the upcoming album. This band never throws anything away from their vaults...

There's a Pogues song called "Down all the Days," but the lyrics are nothing like the ones that Bono are singing...
dunno?

Yeah, I've heard of the Pogues version and it's totally different from what Bono briefly added in towards the end of "Beautiful Day". I'm confident it's this 'abandoned song' from about 10-11 years ago...

I'm glad you also noticed. Yeah, I always like guessing and 'theorizing' on the song snippets Bono does live during their sets. It makes things intriguing and a lot more spontaneous than anything...

Not sure. I'm still convinced that the original "Down All the Days" version was 'resurrected' when Bono sang the brief couple of verses I heard and also read about in the past...
