Hello Hello!!


November 25th, 2002

Somone's wrong here... @ 02:59 pm

simu2fan:
I'm currently feelin: amused at this mistake
I'm currently hearin: Because the Night in my head

First of all...I would have given anything to be at This concert.

But the reporter got something wrong. U2 never did a B-side of "Because the Night." Unless I'm dreaming...Patti Smith covered the tune and U2 did a B-side cover of Patti Smith's "Dancing Barefoot." I hate reading blatant errors in newspapers.

Just wanted to vent!!

hmm, they might do a really good job on that song. I've always loved to think of songs I'd want them to cover.

Yes I'd love to hear them do that. I love Patti Smith's version and of course Bruce's.

I would fall over dead in sheer ecstasy if U2 covered 20th Century Boy (T.Rex).

Tiny minor error...Patti Smith co-wrote Because the Night with Bruce Springsteen, she didn't cover it. Her version is the original.

Oops! You are right! I haven't heard the song in so long that I completely forgot about that. But still, U2 never sang it! I'd love to hear them sing it though.

Oh, I completely agree with you...I trust U2 to make a good cover of just about anything (though I have issues with their attempt at Fortunate Son); some of my favorite U2 songs are covers: Can't Help Falling in Love, Dancing Barefoot, Everlasting Love.

I think they could do a bitchin' version of Because the Night.

I love all those covers (but I sort of have issues with Fortunate Son too, especially 'cause that's one of my fave CCR songs. Also I'm not so sure of Paint it Black either but i forgive them :-)

Dancing Barefoot is amazing!!! I'd like to find a bootleg of that Bruce show. I sooooo want to hear that version.

Small world, eh? ;)

Well, I admit their attempt at "Paint it Black" is a little...err...unorthodox, but I do find it a pleasant departure from the original's style.

But yeah, I can't stand "Fortunate Son".
