Sydney

Hi! Can someone pleaaaaase tell me what the last song was that U2 played tonight in Sydney? It was the final encore. I thought he was singing something like "I know this is not your fight"... am I totally off track? Any help would be appreciated!

Bono & Kylie duet

So the rumoured Kylie collaboration happened after all, with Bono making an appearance at her latest show for a duet of "Kids" (the song that was kept from the UK #1 spot by Beautiful Day, interestingly enough!).

I really hope a recording of this turns up at some point. Although I can't help feeling there's something *deeply* wrong about Bono covering a Robbie Williams song...!

Edit: More details + pics at U2.com.

Kylie and Bono

A small, poor-quality clip can be found on YouTube. I'm kinda m'eh about the whole song. "Kids" is certainly not one of my favorite Kylie or Robbie Williams tracks, and the song didn't suit Bono's voice. And would it have killed the B-Man to do a little more than just essentially stand there? Show some bravado and attitude; that's what the song is all about!!!

Anyways, here it is:

hi!

Hey everyone, brand new, hi, how are ya, and all that usual fare. Super glad to be here.

That said, I have a question that has been driving me insane since like, 1998 ... Maybe 96. I can't remember. Anyway, U2 did a cover of "Happiness is a Warm Gun" as we all know. I heard a version of that cover a long time before it came out in any of the recent comps, on some underground radio show. It's got a very edgy, almost industrial sound to it, and it is not any of the recent remixes that came out on the mixes from the last double comp. Does anyone have the foggiest idea what I'm talking about?
Edge and Adam :D

OH MY GOD.

*puts aside girlish screams*

I don't know if anyone else has discovered this, but it appears as if Window in the Skies has appeared on AOL Music, in a studio format.. I just discovered it a few minutes ago, and.. I'm basically speechless, but I thought I'd update all of you. 

Here's the link to it, I hope it works.

If it doesn't, let me know and I'll figure something out. 


I also found some primitive form of the lyrics and typed them up according to the AOL Music recording:

 
The shackles are undone
The bullets quit the gun
The heat thats in the sun
Will keep us when there's none
The rule has been disproved
The stone it has been moved
The grain is now a groove
All debts are removed, ooh

Oh can't you see what our love has done?
Oh can't you see what our love has done?
Oh can't you see what our love has done?
What it's doing to me

Love makes strange enemies
Makes love when love may please
Soul in a strip tease
Hate brought to its knees
Sky over our head
Can reach it from our bed
If you let me in your heart
And out of my head

Oh can't you see what our love has done?
Oh can't you see what our love has done?
Oh can't you see what our love has done?
What it's doing to me

Oh oh oh ohhhhh
Oh oh oh ohhhhh
Please don't ever let me out of here

I've got no shame
Oh no, oh no

Oh can't you see what love has done?
Oh can't you see?
Oh can't you see what love has done?
What it's doing to me

I know I hurt you and I made you cry
Did everything but murder you and I
But love left a window in the skies
And to love, I rhapsodize

Oh can't you see what love has done?
(To every broken heart)
Oh can't you see what love has done?
(For every heart that cries)
Love left a window in the skies
And to love, I rhapsodize

Oh can't you see?
