scaryrich:
when did radio 1 play this?!

the song is class

i listen to radio 1 all the time at work, didnt hear anything about them playing this

anyway, well done U2 boys, keep up the good work.

p.s I was watching the Band Aid video from the 80's earlier, Bono looks so funny, especially in the full leather outfit, complete with leather hat. Best vocals of the whole bunch though...

11:30am this morning. The presenter has been promising to play the track for weeks now, this week she finally kept her promise.

I wouldnae expect the song to be played on R1 again for a few weeks seeing as the official radio release aint for 2 weeks.
She may have got special permision from Island to play the track seeing as she got it as a Wedding pressy from Bono. Who knows tho?!

Wow... I truly love this song. I wouldn't say it epitomizes the 90's-00's, but it certain has that same flavor. And the very end of the song is quite like that of "Acrobat."

You say it swells like a sore head
and the night, it is aching.
Two lovers lie with no sheets on their bed
and the day, it is breaking.
On rainy days, we go swimming out,
On rainy days, swimming in the sound,
On rainy days, we go swimming out.

You're in my mind, all of the time,
I know that's not enough.
If the sky can crack, there must be some way back
Through love and only love.

Come along! I won't let you back to sleep!
You kept awake, dreaming someone else's dream.
Coffee's cold, but it will get you through,
Compromise, that's nothing new to you.
Let's see colors that have never been seen,
Let's go to places no one else has been.

You're in my mind, all of the time,
I know that's not enough.
If the sky can crack, there must be some way back
To love and only love.

Electrical storm!
Electrical storm!
Electrical storm!
Baby, don't cry.

It's hot as hell, honey, in this room,
Sure hope the weather will break soon.
The air's heavy, heavy as a truck,
Hope the rain will wash away our bad luck.

The sky can crack, there must be some way back,
For love and only love.

Electrical storm!
Electrical storm!
Electrical storm!

Baby, don't cry!
Baby, don't cry!
Baby, don't cry!
Baby, don't cry!</i>

That should be about right... right?

It reminds me a bit of Acrobat as well. It has kind of an Achtung-ish feel to it.

it reminds me of 'until the end of the world', and 'baby please come home' and also 'acrobat'

its great tho. I think i might have overdosed on it today if that's possible, i pretty much had it on repeat all day
