Just a question...

I meant to ask this aaaages ago but my memory is shot to bits these days. On the end of 'All I Want Is You' on the Best Of 1980-1990, there's a silence and then another wee song. What is that song? I haven't actually listened to it in a while but I was discussing the album with someone and remembered I didn't know, lol.
Best Band in the World

Little annoyed, VH1's broadcast just started here and U2 had performed hours ago...so does this mean that we don't get to see it? I saw CLIPS of it...but that's just not good enough for me. So far, they've been focusing on Philly.

Arrrgh! U2 is playing "One" in Philadelphia right now, and MTV/VH1 is using the time to have their anchors talk to each other and the crowd, and to show a video on the history of Live Aid.

Song Of The Day

Today's Selection is...

“Tryin‘ To Throw Your Arms Around The World” from Achtung Baby

This is one of the songs that actually made me a huge U2 fan, listening to a 30-second clip of it about a year ago. It’s still one of my favorites.

I love Edge’s background vocals in this song.

Yeah, I had a dream that I saw Dali
With a supermarket trolley
He was trying to throw his arms around a girl
And took an open-top beetle
Through the eye of a needle
He was tryin' to throw his arms around the world… (whooo!)

Newbie! :)

Hey all, I'm new. I'm Alana, but I go by the nickname of Nemo. I'm an 18 year old student who is looking to start a degree in music with instrumental/vocal teaching at Chichester University College in September and I'm bummed because I missed the televised performance of U2 at Live 8 due to being stuck working in Boots in Basingstoke were I happen to live. Much sadness ensues. :(

I've been a fan ever since "All That You can't Leave behind" and since then I have discovered that a few more of the songs I liked but could never put a finger on who wrote them, belonged to them too. Ever since "Stuck in a moment you can't get out of" was broadcast I've loved them and I'm hoping to get the chance to explore some of their older stuff too. I just fell in love with the emotion in their music and the sheer power they hold as a band who have been around for a very long time. Their music is pure genius. :)

My favourite U2 songs? Definitely "The ground beneath her feet", "City of blinding lights", "Stuck in a moment you can't get out of", "Walk on", "Sometimes you can't make it on your own" and "Miracle drug". Beautiful beautiful songs. :)

To those people out there who actually got to see them at Live 8, lucky bastards! :(
