You just can't get enough of that lovey-dovey stuff.

I received a tape of the Popmart show in Mexico today.  I had too much fun reviewing it in my personal LJ not to share it with you guys.  It's quite long, and might require watching if you wish to follow along.  If not, it's probably just full of U2 references you can chuckle at now and again.

New York Times article about Bono

A friend came across this and linked me to it. As she put it "I didn't read it, but I saw Bono and figured you'd be interested". She was right. It's very long, but interesting so far (I'm trying to read this and do about 14 other things at once, including making pizza, and not the frozen kind either).

The article is titled 'The Statesman' and is about Bono's work in Africa. There are photos too.

Song of the Day

Today's Selection is...

"If God Will Send His Angels" from Pop


I watched "City of Angels" once, the entire way through, to hear this song. And it never came out. It even says it on my VHS sleeve! NEW SONG BY U2! ::kicks film editors::
At the beginning of my SotD duties, I was unsure with the entire album of Pop. I was unsure of the kind of psyche the band was in while writing it, and I easily sympathized with the critics who had given it a bad review. Three months later, it's my second favorite U2 album.
Image hosted by Photobucket.comI'm in love with the entire ambiance of this song. Right down to that little guitar riff (you know what I'm talking about, "Doooo, do do do do Dooo" to the bass that nearly made my speaker explode this morning. Damn you Adam! Larry is superb, his beat is...guh. I heart Bono in this song and in the video (which is brilliant.) Some of his lyrics here are just plain genius.
God has got his phone off the hook, babe
Would he even pick up if he could

And come on, the Cartoon Network turning into the news? I love it. I think it's such a great criticsm of society.
Confidently: My favorite song off of Pop.

Watching David Spade's new show - took a stab at Coldplay being 'the new U2'

"you know what makes U2 cool? No one calls them the old Coldplay."

EDIT: I like Coldplay, don't get me wrong, but people calling anyone the new *anything* always bothers me, let them be their own thing. Plus, that was just funny.

it's go time!
