This one doesn’t have the dynamism of the album version. The guitar isn’t as aggressive, the falsetto just doesn’t carry the urgency needed, and Larry’s just beating his sticks together at the start. I’m so happy they opted to go with “I am” in the album version, rather than “I’m down.” C’mon, “I’m down” just doesn’t rock! I want creatures getting squashed crossing the tracks, high-rises on Bono’s back, intellectual tortoises, and the closing “I am” rather than one more repetition of the title to finish it.

But hey, don’t listen to me, I prefer Vertigo to Native Son! Still, I love hearing alternatives, it reassures me that they worked long and hard on this stuff, and the U2sendit Gmail account was a rocking idea. Thanks for sharing your ingenuity!

Got a confession to make about the Gmail, I took my sweet time in there before reading the rules. Sorry!
