U2 ticket trade - Oakland

I have 2 General Admission tickets for Nov. 9 at Oakland Arena that I would like to trade for 2 tickets in the first level section (1xx). I am willing to pay difference in ticket cost.

This is a great opportunity for someone to see U2 up close, either in the ellipse or up against the walkway. See picture for stage setup. I have already seen them up close in San Jose and in the past, so I want to watch the show from a different view, getting to see all the lighting effects.

I am looking for trade only, I do not want to sell these tickets. If I don't find someone to trade with, I'm still planning to use my tickets.

Song of The Day

Today's selection is

"Mysterious Ways" from Achtung Baby (1991)

Thoughts: I'm really wishy-washy with this song. While I absolutely enjoy the instrumentation of the song and the natural sound of Bono's voice, the track is sometimes kind of annoying. Maybe it's the repetition that occurs at the beginning of the chorus. Or the fact that the chorus is too simplistic. There are times when I really love to hear this song and then, there are other times when I'd switch radio stations if it came on. But the instrumentation of the track is its true strength, with the different mixes of the guitar with the bass and drums. The song sounds really dark with some of the instruments, but it doesn't overpower the song in any way and thus, makes it very light. Nevertheless, I think "Mysterious Ways" is a standout track of "Achtung Baby".

Talky Bono!

So I'm on my fourth or fifth replay of the live version of "Stay" from the"Stuck in a Moment..." single, and I feel like asking the only people who might understand this question: Do any of you ever feel the urge to listen to live songs where Bono talks in the intro or during the song repeatedly? Sometimes I just ... really want to hear his speaking voice.

I'm blaming it on his accent.

Sunday Bloody Sunday

Hey everyone. I have a question.

I'm just wondering what exactly is Sunday Bloody Sunday about? I know it's anti-war/anti-violence (at least that's how I interpret it), but is there a particular event or war it's refering to?

If you could give me any information, I'd appreciate it. Thanks a bunch. :)

U2 (South Park)

I love Jon Stewart!!!

Jon Stewart was talking about the the new Pope on the Daily Show. They aired a clip of Pope Benedict XVI walking out on the terrace waving his arms around & smiling. Jon said (and I paraphrase), "You know what he's thinking? 'This must be what it's like to be Bono.'" Then he started singing WOWY & then Sunday Holy Sunday. *sniggers*

It should air again tomorrow at 7pm (et).
