Thanks! No way I'm cluttering my computer with iTunes just to download one track.

This is...interesting.

Reminds me of "Mysterious Ways", "Fast Cars" and a non-U2 song with the rap part.

Love Edge's guitar though.. so peppy!

Me too! Something about the harmonies reminded me of the Beatles as well. :)

YES! The 'you don't know how beautiful you are' is very Beatle-esque

Fast Cars was the first song that came to mind when I heard this, too. :D

I really liked it! A different sound from them, for sure, but not so different that it feels forced or like they're trying to be something they're not.

Someone else said there were hints of "Fast Cars" and I agree. It definitely has that vibe. I can't wait to hear the rest.

Anyone unable to get it through the regular means may find some joy in my lj here.

I have to agree with candogirl in that it sounds different for them, but not too different. I love pretty much all of it, except for the part from 0:49 to 1:15. I feel like that just a small variation on other stuff we've heard from other songs (like "City of Blinding Lights").

With every listen it grows on me. And now 'No Line On The Horizon' seems even more interesting... =)

FUCKYEAH. This is their most rocking song since Pop. I love it and can't stop listening to it.

I transcribed the lyrics if anyone's interested:



The future needs a big kiss
Winds blow with a twist
Never seen a moon like this
Can you see it too?

Night is falling everywhere
Rockets at the funfair
Satan knows a bomb scare
That won't scare you

Hey!
Sexy boots
Get on your boots, yeah

Free me from the dark dream
Candy floss, ice cream
All the kids are screaming
But the ghosts aren't real

Here's what we gotta be
Love and community
Laughter is eternity
If joy is real

You don't know how beautiful
You don't know how beautiful you are
x2
You don't know!
You don't get it do you!
You don't know how beautiful you are!

It's someone's stuff to blow it up
We're here to grow it up
Women are the future
Hold the big revelations
I got a submarine, you got gasoline
I don't wanna talk about wars between nations

Not right now!
Sexy boots, sexy boots
Yo, no, no, no
Get on your boots, yeah.
Not right now!
Sexy boots
*rock scream*

You don't know how beautiful
You don't know how beautiful you are
x2
You don't know!
You don't get it do you!
You don't know how beautiful you are!

Sexy boots
I don't wanna talk about the wars between the nations
Sexy boots, yeah.

Let me in the sound
Let me in the sound
Let me in the sound, sound
Let me in the sound, sound
Let me in the sound

Let me in the sound
Let me in the sound, now
God, I'm going down
I don't wanna drown now
Meet me in the sound

Let me in the sound
Let me in the sound
Let me in the sound, sound
Let me in the sound, sound
Meet me in the sound

Get on your boots
Get on your boots
Get on your boots
Yay-hey-hey!
Get on your boots
Yay-hey-hey!
Get on your boots
Yay-hey-hey!
Get on your boots
Yay-hey-hey!

I think it's "Satan loves a bomb scare, but he won't scare you"

Thanks for transcribing these!

Thanks for the link! I woke up early to hear the single on the Irish radio stream...only to have my internet not work. I almost had a panic attack. But now the internet is back up with this to greet me! :D

And I think I really like it.

I like it! It's fun. X3

And yeah, "Fast Cars" lives on in "You don't know how beautiful/You don't know how beautiful you are." woo~

Man. I feel like there are people who are gonna HATE this song. I can feel them coming. But the more I listen to this song the more I realize it's perfect. This is just what U2 needs to do. That guitar/bass riff is like a drill boring into my soul. For reals.

I just remind myself that one of the reasons we love U2 is because they don't make "generic" music.

I like it, it doesn't sound like anything else on radio right now.
BUT it does remind me of some other songs
