U2 Sexy Boots Riff Is All Over YouTube

Bono is either really stupid or really smart. After a very loud listening session of the new U2 album to himself at his house in the South of France, one clever fan recorded the songs blaring from Bono’s open window.

The fan put video footage of the house complete with U2’s ‘Sexy Boots’ as the soundtrack on YouTube but was soon ordered to remove it due to copyright infringement.

That may have been where the story ends, but it isn’t. Other fans who had heard the YouTube footage have now recorded the riff and now have their own versions up on YouTube.

‘Sexy Boots’ is yet to be announced as the first single from the yet to be announced next album which is expected to be called ‘No Line On The Horizon’, as reported by Undercover last week.

The album is due in November.

I'm still going to wait to hear official titles. Although, I do like the idea of a song called "Sexy Boots". Makes me want to dig out the ol' knee-highs!

That potential album title really annoys me. XD No line on the horizon? How is it a horizon if there's no line by which to identify it as a horizon? Does that mean the earth and the sky are mixing together and making this weird blur where the horizon is normally? A haze in the distance?

Maybe it's about no line of sight on the horizon? The members of U2 can't see the horizon?

yuurrggghh XD

lol. Bono's never been one to try and make sense.

I think what they are/he is trying to say is that they don't see an end to something in the future (end=line ; future=horizon)- be it the world, their music, the band, problems in Africa or problems in the world. But it really would make more sense, if this is what they were going for, to call it 'No Horizon', but again Bono isn't a big fan of making any sense.

They could have been drunk when they came up with the title.
