Battle Of The Videos: Round 4 @ 11:44 pm

canadanne:
I had a feeling Streets was going to win the last round, even though I think that video is way overrated! The voting is still pretty close, mind you, with some strong competition from With Or Without You.


ROUND 4: RATTLE & HUM / MISCELLANEOUS '87-'90

The videos are:

Christmas (Baby Please Come Home) [YouTube link]
Edge rolls his eyes at Bono *again*! Adam gives him a wink, though. :D

Desire [YouTube link]
Bono is blatantly reading the lyrics!

Angel Of Harlem [YouTube link]
Co-starring the angel herself, Billie Holliday.

When Love Comes To Town [YouTube link]
Sorry about the Spanish subtitles and abrupt end to this clip, but it was the only damn video I could find on YouTube. Why the hell is someone drawing a moustache on The Edge?!

All I Want Is You [YouTube link]
Circus-based romance / tragedy / mystery...

Night And Day [YouTube link]
Up through the spiral staircase (to the higher ground). Gratuitous Bono shirtlessness. Wait a minute - is he reading the lyrics again?!

No obvious winner for me in this round. I'm fairly underwhelmed by all the Rattle & Hum videos - I never really get the urge to watch any of them. All I Want Is You is probably the best, but eh, there's no band in it (or hardly at all). Night & Day is an amaaaaazing song but the video doesn't really set me on fire... so I've just gone for the cutesy feelgood Christmas one that makes me smile. :p

I thought about this for a while, but I had to vote for All I Want is You. The storyline is so sad and lovely at the same time. And I don't remember the boys doing this kind of video before. And the fact that I love love love the song had nothing to do with it. ;o)

To this day I'm still confused by the All I want Is You video, someone could probably summerise it for me, but I dunno it confuses me. Who dies!? Everyone says it's the little guy...but is it really?

So I voted for Christmas.

Is it just me or does Larry kind of look like Annie Lennox in the bit where he's playing the bongos during "Night and Day". ("All I Want is You" got my vote too.)

My vote went for Desire, just because of all the cuteness in it. It's as if they want us to believe that U2 spent all their free time on tour just hanging out on the streets of LA, meeting and greeting the locals. Plus there's slow-mo Bono chest, which is always a good note.

On a side note, rewatching the When Love Comes to Town video just now has sparked a strong desire in me to go to Memphis. I swear, part of my soul lives in that city.

Desire. It's like how U2 wanted it to be.
