Night & Day @ 02:06 am

I'm currently feelin: curious curious

Quick poll: Who has seen the video for U2's "Night & Day"?

I remember back in 1993 when I was just getting into my U2 obsession, I'd ritually have a blank video tape in the VCR and I'd watch Much Music's "RVSP" request hour in hopes that someone would request U2.

One afternoon I luckily happened to tape RVSP when someone requested U2. I don't know if they specifically requested Night & Day, but that's what they played. I was enchanted by that video... still am kind of!

The funny thing is, if it wasn't for me taping that video that one 1993 afternoon, I doubt I would have seen it at all. I haven't seen it on Much Music since. They never include that video in any of the U2 specials on Much Music, or anything else. That one time was the only time I ever saw that video.

I'm curious if anyone else has ever seen it.

It's a little odd, kinda like the sound of 90s U2 with the look of late-80s U2 (Bono still has pretty long hair), and it may take getting used to but... I love that song. It's been stuck in my head for the past two weeks, quite honestly...

ANYwho, at u2images.com, you can find image captures of Night and Day. It's a lot of darkness, a spiral staircase, shadows and tall trees... ok, maybe not tall trees, but you get the picture. :-) Enjoy!

Note to self: PROOFREAD!

When I said, "It's a little odd, kinda like the sound of 90s U2 with the look of late-80s U2..." I didn't mean to imply that the sound of 90s U2 was weird, just the video for Night and Day was.

EH!

I've seen it and have it on tape (it's not the world's greatest quality of tape, but it's a copy of a copy of a bunch of U2 and Gavin Friday bits and bobs). It's a rather surreal video, I think. Odd, in some ways.

Here are a couple of rather stupid and embarassing questions that I've pondered each time I've watched N&D: In the video, is Bono wearing pants at the end? And is Larry wearing shorts?

I haven't seen it. :o(  I really want to, though. I so hope they'll release another video compilation at some point which will include that one on it.... maybe it will be on the DVD that's coming out this year.... *crosses fingers!*

Yeah, I've taped it at least twice (from different occasions over the years when MTV or some other channel would have U2 blocks or marathons).
