Hello Hello!!

One is #2 @ 10:57 pm

canadanne:
With the CD hitting the shops this past week, the U2 & Mary J Blige version of One has now risen 17 places and ended up at No.2 in the UK singles chart.

Was it released in any other countries this week, just out of interest?

Heh.

Sorry, I'll stop now. Really.

Lol! I was dealing with it pretty well actually until I read a comment on, y'know those Ceefax pages? And someone said they hated the original but love the new version. I felt like going into my TV and shaking the person. ARGH! How is that even possible? Surely it is scientifically wrong. Or something.

Not bad...

That's one way to remind everyone what a great band U2 STILL is... although I would prefer the Achtung Baby! version, hands down to Mary J. Blige for covering and featuring U2 on the song.

I think that comment pretty much sums up my feelings on the subject. Whilst no cover or new version will ever be in the same league as the original, at least the band actually feature on this, so it's not completely unrecognisable from the old one (you've still got Edge's soaring guitar and everything!). I find it quite heartwarming to know that so many people went and bought this because they recognised what a great song One still is. The new one even choked me up just a little on the radio this evening... overall I'd agree with your assessment of "not bad"!

i'm in australia and i heard it for the first time on the radio today... and i'm not really up on the charts, but it's an interesting take. doesn't come anywhere close to the original, but i like it ok
