I'm currently feelin: okay okay

Heya peoples!

I'm a pretty new U2 fan...since I've became addicted to "All That You Can't Leave Behind"!

My like of U2 is a bit weird...cause I love some of their stuff (like the older/Joshua Tree sorta stuff...and recent stuff) and really don't like some of there stuff too (like the 90s sorta stuff)! Anyway...I think Bono is a great guy...and I wanna learn more about the whole U2 thing...so I'm excited to be here!

Here's something I posted in my own journal a while back:

I'm a big fan of U2's "All That You Can't Leave Behind"...especially the song "Walk On"...because it's just an awesome anthem.

Anyway, I have 2 versions of "Walk On"...the album version...and radio version from the Aussie CD single. I think I like the radio/single version better (expect it doesn't have the little Bono talky intro).

I usually use the radio/single version to play along with on my guitar...but today I had the album version on...and started to play along. "WHAT THE?!? This isn't right...it's all wrong! Hang on...it's in a different key!" lol! The album version is all a semitone higher than the radio version...which is why it didn't sound too good when I started to play along.

So I played both the album and radio version of "Walk On" at the same time...on 2 different stereos next to each other. And I realised that not only is the radio version a semi-tone lower (and of course cut short for it to suit radio...which I already knew), but it's also faster...and I reckon the singing is better. lol. That's different.

Welcome to the club. I, too, don't like much from the 90s, except Achtung Baby. Also, I'm a relatively new fan, though most can't tell from my knowledge of the band. If you need any tutoring in the U2 realm, feel free to ask me anytime.

Cool...hi! My U2 knowledge is growing fast...after reading through www.u2faq.com! But I'm sure I'll have plenty of questions or just stay to say sooner or later.

Mm'kay, well there's a lot more to know about U2 than what you can find on websites. I'd also recommend registering with @U2.com. They have a lot of relatively useless info about the band that they send out every day.

Of course, since it's a non-biased group, sometimes you'll be sent articles which are derogatory to the band -not the exactly best way to make friends with yours truly, since I'm infamous for flaming editors for such articles- but, other than that, it's a nice way to find out what Bono, Edge, Larry, and Adam are up to.

Hehe, 90s U2 is my favourite, so don't slag it off too much or I'm bound to jump into defensive mode. ;o))  Welcome anyway!! *g*

...lol! Ok, I'll be nice. Anyway...I'm not really one to cast judgement...cause I actually don't have any of the 90's CDs. It's just they got a little weird during that time. Oh well. cheers!

Funny thing about Zooropa is that everyone thinks it's weird at first, but a lot of people listen to it a few months later and suddenly fall in love with it. I don't know why that is, but it seems to be the general pattern! That's what happened with me. Now I adore Zooropa and I've gotten so used to it, I don't think it's weird any more! OK I'm rambling I think. *g*
