Just a note on the accents issue-you gotta consider where Bono's perspective is from. I'm Canadian and to me? EVERYONE in Florida has a southern accent. So to Bono, that's probably how it sounds. Gotta consider where the boy's are coming from-Florida and Miami must have seemed really different to them!

That's Florida. Yes, the northern part of Florida has a Southern accent. But Miami is anything but.
Miami is just...I don't know. There are basically like 4 different accents here. On the beach, from the old folks, you'll find a New Yorkish "Coffee Talk with Linda Richmond" kinda sound. But it's rare.
There's the "recent arrival" accent (there are actually several kinds of these, but you wouldn't notice unless you were hispanic).
There's the (UGH) stupid stupid stupid "MIAMI" accent. It sounds like the worst butchering of the English language. Done by people who were born here, but try and pretend that they are not. It has an awful "sing-songy" tone to it. It's just mocking and ugh, disgusting.
And finally there's what I call normal Miami accents. They sound like people speaking it normally. New York without the New York in it, Boston without the Bawwwston in it, California with out the California in it. It's just normal everyday English.
If you're interested I'll demonstrate using my microphone later. ;)
