Pink Me

(no subject)

Ok, time for something fun. I've just spent the last week and a half with no internet, cooped up with my family, and it sucked.
During this time, I experienced extreme boredom and so I consoled myself with U2, of course.

One night, whilst about to go to sleep, I started flipping through my Pop CD booklet, because I am such a PopTart. As I did so, I was commenting to myself about all of the snazzy photos within the pages.

I was amusing myself so much that I decided to share my commentary with you guys =D

Right. That was more fun than it probably should've been XD

Question

Hey there,

i'm new here, i have been a U2 fan for about 3 years now, thanks to an obsessed friend.

I was just wondering...what's the cream of the crop for U2? like what's their first first release as U2.

For example, if your a fan of Radiohead, you know the first release was The Drill Ep...



know what i mean?
The Alarm - James

U2 Tribute CD

Was in my local specialist/2nd CD store in Ipswich at lunchtime, flickign through the U2 section and came across this ratehr bizarre tribute album called "We Will Follow" released in 1999 on Cleopatra Records (London). What got me was the track listing and acts on it a very strange mix of things .....

We Will Follow - A Tribute to U2

all right, i said i'd upload some of them, but i decided what the hell - uploaded the entire thing :P

just let me know if the links run out (that's how yousenditworks, right?)

i also have some of the strung out on u2 songs, but that might take me longer to upload, as they are on my older computer, from which i have not yet transferred any of my files to my spiffy new compy.

that was a really awkward phrase.

at any rate, tracks, with some notes about which ones are either kind of cool or particularly hysterical:

kinda cool: New Year's Day, Numb (even more industrial), Polecats' version of Desire is really kind of neat, and for some reason, Where the Streets is kind of sweet. however, Dead or Alive's version of EBTTRT is just. i don't even know what to say, but it makes me giggle.
