Hello Hello!!

warning: insanity inside!!!!! @ 10:32 pm

gravitysdream:
I'm currently feelin: giggly giggly
I'm currently hearin: U2 - New York LIVE!!!

I love Acrobat. Its a damn shame they don't sing that one in concert although I do understand why. Its a very close song to Bono. I read (i think) in Into the Heart that it was written because Bono was tired of people expecting so much out of him. I long to hear three things at a U2 concert:

1. Do you feel love
2. With or Without You, the Rattle and Hum version (exactly the same)
3. Acrobat
4. LEMON!!!!!

I soooo wish I could see Bono in that gold suit, live. Wow. Enough to turn a straight man....well....umm....turn a straight man into Bono! LOL Acrobat is just a powerful song. Without or without you is just my insanity song. I listen to it in repeat all the time. My parents use to shake their head in ponder when I would burn a CD of NOTHING but different versions of WOWY and listen to it until the CD wore out; yes I have woke up in the morning to simply turn the volume back up on the stereo to listen to wowy in repeat, turning it down before bed.

Im insane. hehehhehehe

As to the Best Of discussion: could it be that the songs chosen were the bands favorites??!??!?!?!?!? Here is my 1990-2000 best of song list:



Miss Sarajevo
The Fly
One
Zoo Station
Acrobat
Ultra Violet
Lemon
Numb
Stay
Discotheque
Do You Feel Love
Please
Wake Up Deadman
Beautiful Day
Stuck in a moment you Can't get ouf of
Walk On
Wild Honey
New York

Period. :)

I like the selection, of course, I would buy a U2 cd even if it just had the band laughing at me for buying it on it. Im strange. No wait, im a fanatic. However I promise not to stand outside the studio or Larrys house (he doesnt like that). What I would like to see from the boys next is a remake of all their best songs. A complete remake DVD!!!! YES! They perform each song live!!!! OooOOOOo I feel another list coming on:

I will Follow, Stories for Boys, Out of Control, Gloria, Sunday Bloody Sunday, New Years Day, DROWNING MAN, 40, Pride, Bad, Where the Streets Have No Name (they can sing on top of my house if need be), I Still Havent Found What Im looking For, With or Without You, One Tree Hill, Mothers of the Disappeared, Heartland, Van Diemans Land, All I want is You, Zoo Station, One, The Fly, Ultra Vilolet, Acrobat, Zooropa, Numb, Lemon, Stay, The First Time, YOUR BLUE ROOM, Discotheque, Do You Feel Love, Please, The Playboy Mansion, Wake up Dead Man, Beautiful Day, Walk On, Stuck in a Moment you Can't get out of, Wild Honey, When I look at the World, New York, Peace on Earth, OH YEAH and Holy Joe and Falling at Your Feet, and the Ground Beneath Her Feet.

Boy am I crazy or what. whew. Okay nuff now.

"Acrobat" is prolly my favourite song off AB. Would *love* to hear it live...I could see it fitting beautifully as part of an acoustic set...

*sigh*

Acoustic?!?!?! Bite your tounge! I want the raw emotion that comes with it that only larry and edge can bring and Bono lay before my soul. (was that just poetic????). I would love to see it live because I can only imagine the variations that they could come up with it, not to mention the original being just as powerful. One of my greatest concert moments (keep in mind Ive only been to 6 concerts in my life, four of which were U2) was when I was at the Elevation show on March 30th 2001 in Atlanta. There were two wristbands to be gotten for the heart. I had been informed, thankfully, of that and was able to arrest one. Then when Nelly Fratata-whatever got on stage and pierced our ear drums with the horrible sound of her vocals, most left the heart. Then just as her show was finishing up: they closed the heart. without the second wristband you could not get in. Ergo there was only maybe 100 of us in there. We all had DANCING room. And I mean TANGO room. SO standing in this heart with Bono encircling me, close enough to touch, I would have loved to have seen Acrobat performed has he encircled that heart, the raw emotion pouring, Edge behind him. Sighhh

Am I an obsessed fan with too much time on my hands? Absolutly. :)

what a fun entry to read. I totally relate on the 'with or without you' on repeat thing. it's one of the few (if only) songs I just adore listening to over and over...never get tired of it...and every time I hear it it's like magic. I've long considered it the most perfect song ever. drums, bass, guitar, voice...simple get seamlessly melded and absoltley incredible. :)

I don't have the words to describe how badly I, too, wish to see this.
