I'm currently feelin: silly silly
I'm currently hearin: Zoo Station ~ U2

I was going to bother you all with some more ridiculous U2 conspiracy theories (YAY!) but I came up with something cooler. Somehow or another, I did a full run-through of Zoo Station, basically commenting on every little thing in the song. It's quite funny, and shows I have nothing else to do while waiting for laundry to dry.


0:00-0:03
CLINK CLINK CLINK CLINK CLINK

0:03-0:08
Those first beautiful riffs

0:09-0:13
tap tap tap tap... tap tap tap tap

0:13-0:30
Things are beginning to come together

0:30-0:45
Enter Larry (with a bang!), and the intro really comes together

0:45-0:58
Enter Bono, making Bono noises

0:59-1:26
Bono tells us that he's ready. Okay, Bono. Also, take notice (Achtung!) Larry carries the verse, but you can hear Adam quite well too.

1:27-1:28
"Uh-huh." See? Bono agrees with me. Also another great Edge riff here.

1:29-1:44
Second verse. Bono ends it with a "Yea."

1:45-1:58
I love the choruses in this song. Bono's not even singing, he's just speaking quietly. But we get Bono noises in the background.

1:59-2:27
Hmmm, I wonder if I like this verse better than the first one? I know I like how Edge butts in at 2:13.

2:28-2:43
More Bono speaking and Bono noises. I love the way Bono breathes out the words "the line" in the first bit. Also, "Zoo Statiooooon" get sung this time, not spoken.

2:44-3:00
Bono tells us that it's alright, it's alright, it's alright, hey baby, hey baby, it's alright, it's alright. I call this practice for Mysterious Ways and Ultra Violet (Light My Way) ;P

3:01-3:05
"Uh-huh." See? He's agreeing with me again! He also tells us that we can turn it up. Okay, Bono.

3:06-3:21
Bono tells us why time is a train. I love how his voice drops for the last line.

3:22-3:51
Okay, this time around, he's actually singing. Plenty of "Zoo Statiooooon"s and Bono noises in the background though.

3:52-4:07
Okay, he's back to speaking, and there are no more Bono noises, but we still get plenty of "Zoo Statiooooon"s.

4:08-4:35
The outtro, Bono takes a break while Edge, Adam, and Larry close the song up seamlessly.

The best part? If you listen REALLY hard, during CLINK CLINK CLINK CLINK, you can hear something that sounds, to me, like a subway wooshing down the line.

I found this quite amusing. And I heartily agree with your comments. Who doesn't love Bono noises? :-)
