While I'm a big fan of U2's cover of Paint it Black, the first time I heard their Fortunate Son cover, I hated it. I think this may have something to do with me hearing the original a lot growing up, and liking it just the way it was. I have a distinct memory of being about ten or eleven, and getting ready to go into a drugstore with my mother (I think we were picking up some photos we'd had developed), and she told me what Fortunate Son was about (we'd probably just been listening to it in the car).
When I found out that U2 had covered it, I was excited to get my hands on it.... and then I was promptly disappointed. You put it perfectly, Bono does sound extremely bored. It has none of the emotion of the original. I've probably only listened to it a total of four times, and haven't even bothered to put it on my iPod. It just doesn't interest me.

But randomly, I've just discovered that the lyric is "house looks like a rummage sale" basically my whole life I've thought it was "house looks like a roman shade" O_o which never made much sense to me, except that they're kind of crumpled looking. Rummage sale makes WAY more sense.

LOL!
I hadn't ever listened to the words until I looked them up for this post. I dunno if I would have heard that correctly, as I don't think the term "rummage sale" is really used over here.
