Song of the Day

Today's Selection is...

"One/Unchained Melody" from the Live8 Concert in London.

I reuploaded it for anyone who wants to take a listen. Thanks to desert_sky for the original!

Rather than doing a review of the song and it's performance in general, I want to see your response to the speech and the songs.
If you need some help getting started, here are some basic questions:
What does One mean to you today, as opposed to when you first heard it? What is your favorite bit about this live performace? The masses singing as one voice? The additional lyrics at the end of "One"? How about the thousands of people singing "Unchained Melody" and Bono letting them take the lead midway?
Answer away! The longer the better. If you think no one is going to read it, you're wrong. I read everything.

A very happy July 4th to all the Americans in this community!

    u2 - one


I was listening to "Lady With The Spinning Head" and just noticed how similar it is to "Wake Up (part 1)" from the soul preacher album. Was Wake Up an early version that they morphed into Lady? Just wondering what you guys thought or knew.
(personally i like Wake Up better :P)

some words for July 4th

From the brightest star
Comes the blackest hole
You had so much to offer
Why did you offer your soul?
I was there for you baby
When you needed my help
Would you deny for others
What you demand for yourself?

Cool down mama, cool off
Cool down mama, cool off

You speak of signs and wonders
I need something other
I would believe if I was able
But I’m waiting on the crumbs from your table

You were pretty as a picture
It was all there to see
Then your face caught up with your psychology
With a mouth full of teeth
You ate all your friends
And you broke every heart thinking every heart mends

You speak of signs and wonders
But I need something other
I would believe if I was able
But I’m waiting on the crumbs from your table

Where you live should not decide
Whether you live or whether you die
Three to a bed
Sister Ann, she said
Dignity passes by

And you speak of signs and wonders
But I need something other
I would believe if I was able
I’m waiting on the crumbs from your table

WBOS Boston

92.9 WBOS has been playing Rattle and Hum for the past forty-five minutes or so! I tuned in to the end of Van Diemen's Land, and was really excited when I heard the talking at the end of it, and then Desire. :D

I have no idea why, but obviously I have no problem with it. All I Want Is You is playing right now, so it's soon over.


4th of July

Yea I was waiting for today to ask this:
Does anyone have the version of 4th of July from the Gold disc of Unforgettable Fire? Supposedly, it is a bit longer than on the regular discs. I really love the song and for those of you who don't...try listening to it on a stormy evening, maybe telling ghost stories or something. It sets that kind of creepy mood....
Anywho, if anyone has it would you mind putting it up? Mucho thanks

Argh, back to work tommorrow...

iTunes Complete u2

This has probably been asked before, so I apologize beforehand.

With an internet speed of "100 mbps" (near that), how long does it take to download the complete u2 set?
That being said, can you stop the download and then start it up again later?

Many thanks!
