"Freedom has a scent like the top of a newborn baby's head."
Anyone else utter a huge "awwwww!" after hearing that one? ;)
Beautiful lyrics all throughout the album. Good job, Bono (and in some cases Edge).
Goddamn, nevermind! Apparently no one likes this line. Forget I said anything.

HTDAAB has entered the album charts at No. 1 in the following countries:
Ireland ..... UK ..... Australia ..... Finland ..... Holland .....
Brazil, more to come
(We'll know how they did in the US by Wed. morning, I believe)
Looking for the pictures I saw the other day of Bono and Ali on the teacups at Disney? I was telling my husband about how happy and sweet they looked together and now I can't find the picture. :/ Can anyone point me in the right direction?
"When we were leaving...this character arrived called Christopher Nolan and...he couldn't move a muscle. Only his eyes were just so sharp and so awake. Turns out he was born without any oxygen for..uh..2 hours I think it was. But his mother so believed in him - that look in his eyes - she used to read to him...she taught him. And then they found this little...pill that allowed him to move his neck by about an inch. And then they put this thing to his head like a little unicorn and...they taught him how to type. Turns out he had all these poems in his head. His first poem was called 'I Learned To Bow'. Then he put a book out called 'Dam-burst Of Dreams' and...it won all kinds of things..literary awards...and I guess he was sort of a genius. But I was thinking about the look in his eyes and the faith...that someone had in him that he was awake, that he was conscience. This is called 'Miracle Drug'."
So Edge sings the last verse..
Beneath the noise, below the din
I hear your voice, it's whispering
In science and in medicine
"I was a stranger, you took me in"...
how very Edge-like... *grins*
