1980... @ 09:44 pm

alternatending:
I'm currently feelin: cheerful cheerful
I'm currently hearin: U2 - Out of Control 1980.02.26

So I was just listening to a recording (or two) from some 1980 shows ... waaaay back in the day.

& I've always heard their older stuff, but never from a live recording. It never struck me until now how majorly punk influenced they were... It's pretty awesome.
So I went out and bought WAR and BOY. hehe...

& wow. The Irish accent is way more noticable for Bono too. He just said "tank ya fer comin'". CUTE.

Especially listening to it performed back THEN... the way they played it...

It's great.

It's also kind of cool how young Bono really sounds... like, YOUNG.

You can definitely tell Bono's accent has faded. Makes me a wee bit sad. :Þ

But it's still there

Watch recent interviews.
He has the accent when he says just the right words.

It's hot. <3 :p

Not just the accent, but what smoking has done to his voice. Plus just the aging element. Makes me sad, ya know... I wonder what some of the newer songs would sound like with his old voice.

Just something that crosses my mind every once in a while.

War is one of my favourites. I especially love "Seconds". Fantastic Album!

"seconds" reminds me of something The Beatles would record...

I'm not entirely sure why. I think it's the lyrics...

I absolutely ADORE 'War'. I didn't even get into it until recently, but it's my second fave U2 album after Achtung Baby. It just seems like it's overlooked by a lot of people.
