U2 Song of The Day

Today's selection is "Lemon" from Zooropa (1993).

Thoughts: It's definitely a departure. In this case, I think it's brave for a band like U2 to experiment with different types of formats musically. Often times, rock bands will stick with their own sound (if it's unique enough to be entirely distinguishable from any other band) and churn out album after album, never getting the oppotunity to grow as musicians. That being said, I love the song's driving bass rhythm throughout the song and the very image-oriented lyrics. Yes, Bono does sound like someone else. But it doesn't deter from the song. I think the one problem with the song is that it's an epic seven minutes long and I think that time could have been sliced off on the song and it would not have lost its impact or become mundane.

Yesterday: "Angel of Harlem".

My MacPhisto costume is Done!!!!!!! thanks to Jess who worked extremely hard at completing the costume for me on time. FYI MacPhisto was Bono's alter ego on the Zoo TV Tour (this FYI was for my sister as I know most of my LJ friends already know who MacPhisto is).

The outfit is lined with Red Cotton Lining.

I want to see u2 in buffalo. very much so.
but, unfortually I can't find anyone who is really willing to fork up either the cash, the driving distance or they don't like u2 (and or their new material).

Any suggestions ? I've been waiting years to see them!

Who is opening for U2 in the final leg of their North American (in the Fall)?
I've listened to some Kings of Leon stuff and i SERIOUSLY hope they find a new opening act for the fall.
