stand next to the truth

something cool

Just Thought I'd like to share this with you guys.

On Tuesday my history of rock teacher was lecturing about gospel songs and how it influences stuff like the blues and rock. Well, one of the listening samples he used was the Rattle and Hum recording of I Still Havn't Found What I'm Looking For. That was cool. He pointed out how U2 didn't have to change a thing about the way they played the song. All they did was add a gospel choir and it just meshed. It really does mesh, because it's a GREAT recording of the song.
