Random poll! @ 05:12 pm

I'm currently feelin: curious curious
I'm currently hearin: It's the End of the World As We Know It - REM

Alright, a friend of mine has been doing multi-question random polls on his LJ for over a year. I was thinking about this, and it occured to me that what this community needs is a random poll. So I've made one, most of the questions are U2 related, and I tried to be as creative as possible.
My original thought was that I could do these randomly, but regularly (like, at least once a month or so, but not on a set schedule). But it's occured to me that I probably wouldn't be able to come up with enough questions to keep this interesting. Even if people submitted questions, it would probably dry up pretty fast. That said, this will probably not be a regular event. However, if anyone wants to submit questions, you may do so in the comments (and please be as specific as possible if you do). If I get enough/enough interesting ones, I can do another poll in the future.

I'll do this cause I am boooored but I have to say I can't answer the 'overplayed' question as none of those songs are. At least not here. I'm lucky if I hear a U2 song on the radio... but I usually avoid radio anyway because it sucks, mostly.

I know! The problem with misheards is whenever someone tells you one, that's all you EVER hear in the song afterwards! Drives me crazy sometimes. ;)

For example: "Free at last, they took your life, they could not take your PIE!"

NOW I remember my good misheard line, the one I answered was subpar. Okay, HMTMKMKM: Believing in your cell phone as much as your god

(real: Believing in yourself almost as much as you doubt)

Again, I like mine better. But I SUPPOSE the real one makes sense. Whatever, when Bono comes around asking me for lyric suggestions I know what I'll tell him.

Hee, I love when our misheards are better! I like my 'All I Want Is You' one too: "a river in a tide of dryness" instead of "a river in a time of dryness". I thought it was really clever wordplay until I realised I was wrong and then I thought it was even more clever! Lol!

I cannot believe there are 7 people who don't know who canadanne is... either that or they're reluctant to admit she's awesome and well, that's not right! Out with you, begone! Etc etc. *dramatic gestures*

And omgz!!!One!! there are people who don't care about what they do with their hair?! And here was me thinking that was the topic preferred to discussing the music. My mistake! *facepalm*

AB rules! Pop's a masterpiece! Edge is the best! One's the best song ever written! Wooo!

I feel much better for that, now. Ta-ra, loves.

Y'know, it would be very interesting to see the ages of those who voted for AB v. JT. I'm a yooge JT fan, but then it came out when I was in high school, so it has the whole nostalgia factor for me.

I didn't answer all the questions because it's TOO HARD (+ I'm stupid)! But I love polls, you should make more of these. :)

Most of those questions were impossible to answer with the options available, so I had to pick the nearest one. :p

And WTF am I randomly doing in there?! *blink* (lol)

I realised after I read other people's answers that the misheard lyric is a funny thing, like.. mis'heard' lyrics. I like those, but I put something that I hadn't noticed before. Lyrics I like that aren't prominent. oh well...
