Dave Gahan sweat

for those of you who have seen u2 live before...have you ever seen them perform "The Ground Beneath Her Feet?"

i would love to see this song in person, i was just wondering if i had a chance.


Played this today for the first time in what 4-5 years? This really does have some of Edge's best work of the 80s.

The guitar riff really does sound like what he would later go onto put to I Still Haven't Found. Beautiful stuff.

5/20 Good Morning America

Ok, it just went off. I suffered through news I really didn't care to hear about, and rising murderous feelings for the local ABC affiliate's weatherwoman (DIE WOMAN DIE!) to see my precious U2.

My favourite bit of the interview was the quote someone had said about Adam "The easiest to watch of the sheep that go astray" (or something like that... maybe it was "the most watchful"? I'm open to corrections). And his response was like "Who said that? Who uses language like that?" (again, unsure of the exact wording) but it just amused me, it was a 'who the hell talks like that?!' moment. Adam is Love.
Also, Larry doesn't mind people thinking he's hot. =D

As for the performances themselves, Vertigo was about as I expected. I loved the "More people in Chicago speak Irish than Spanish" bit at the beginning though.

Beautiful Day was beautiful of course =P
My sister, who was sleeping on the couch for some reason woke up right after it started, and looked at the TV and then looked at me and said "What is this?" and I responded simply "Good Morning America". Beautiful Day is one of her favourite U2 songs (and she's not really a fan) so she sat up and watched it with me.
Again, the end was great "It's a beautiful day! On my birthday!" I loved it. I love him, dammit.

And last came Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own. Now, my sister disappeared into the bathroom right after it started, which I was glad for, because when Bono reached the crescendo, I started crying. Which has happened before when watching clips of their SYCMIOYO performance at the Brooklyn Bridge concert on the VH1 special a month or so ago. It just hits me. So I sat there and kept watching it, and trying to stop crying. And I just about had stopped, when after the song he started talking about saying goodbye, and I lost it again. The studio version is emotional enough on it's own, on stage it's something else.

I believe someone... one of the anchors said there were 42 camera angles. Looks like the DVD is going to be awesome.

how great was U2 on GMA today? :D

It just made me more excited to see them live (unfortunately my show isn't until October, but it's definately worth the wait!)

We got our yearbooks today, and I got a nice suprise.
One day, my friends were taking pictures of me in the mall. When we got the yearbooks someone told me to flip to page 251. there was a big picture of me listening to the u2 ipod at the ipod store. The person who told me to flip to the page yelled "Look Stacey! You really are the biggest U2 fan at our school!". It made me so happy.
The caption was "Sunday Bloody Sunday. At the apple store in oakridge mall, Stacey ----, Senior looks at the new U2 ipod. Music was another 'must have' in the life of a teenager."
Now my love for U2 is forever immortalized in the 2005 compendium!
