(no subject)

Yesterday...my local rock radio station, TripleM, played as mini-live-concert of U2 (something they do with various bands from time to time...take about 4 live tracks...and play a "mini-concert" on-air).

I turned it on towards the end of "Where The Streets Have No Name"...then they played "Elevation" (in the middle of the concert...not the opening song with the intro like on the DVDs) and "With or Without You". They are seem to be from the same set...cause Bono's voice and the crowd level was very consistant (unless they edited it together very well).

I had never heard these live versions before...and was wondering where they might come from. The only clue I can give you is that at the end of "Elevation" Bono sang two lines of "I...I...I'm not your stepping stone" (Monkees song). Also, "With Or Without You" included the (now common) "We'll shine like stars in the summer night..." ending.

With that little info...any ideas where these live recordings may have come from??

Make room for the newbie!

Hey all-

I've been reading this board for awhile now but I just created a LiveJournal today. Thanks to unorthodox_muse for the code! On to the post:

I guess I don't need to explain why I joined this community. And I have nothing new to say that nobody else has said before. I just genuinely enjoy U2's music. I didn't start getting into them until last year, when I bought ATYCLB. "Stuck In A Moment" became my life support practically; the whole album became that, really. They're just great.

Anyway, I'm glad to finally be a part of this community, and I'm looking forward to posting more often!

Bono becomes a Dancing Queen?

I was downloading U2 Cristmas songs cause I can't seem to find then in a shop and I found a file called U2 -Dancing Queen and it's really funny to hear Bono sing a song from Abba..

I also found out that my P.E teacher (well the one I had last year) looks a lot like Bono, exept he has blonde hair.. A blonde Bono :P I found that out when I saw him in the summer.. he wore clothes that Bono would wear and he wore sunglasses. He looks then like Bono in Staring at the sun.. :D

DVD > CD question

Hi! I know this was posted sometime this summer, but I couldn't seem to find it. I wanted to make an audio CD of the Slane DVD; is there any way I could do that with downloadable programs?

Thanks in advance. =)
