Hello Hello!!


March 5th, 2003

a random audience participation question: @ 04:52 pm

_serendipity:
Hey everyone!

I used to be an active poster in the Bono folder in Zootopia, but things just aren't like they used to be in there anymore. I would often pose random questions just to get us all chatting - so here's one of those:


What U2 song (or songs - I know it's difficult to ever choose just one!) is your favorite to listen to when you're really sad
You know, the U2 song that you can just cry along to - or maybe the one that makes you feel better about things when you're upset.

And then which one do you most love to sing along to at the top of your voice?

I'm off to have supper and ponder this question myself...

~ I listen to Walk On when I'm feeling down. Stuck in a Moment is good for that too. I like Gone for when I'm feeling kind of upset or angry - especially at a specific person.

~ Where the Streets Have No Name never fails to invigorate me. Beautiful Day always puts things in perspective, too. Elevation is just my favorite song to jam to, though ;)

(yes, I couldn't pick just one, but the first one on both lists is my first choice.)

my listen-to-it-when-I'm-sad songs are: "October" and "Wake Up Dead Man" (good for when I'm not ready to be cheered up) "Ultraviolet (Light My Way)" and "Dancing Barefoot" (great for when I want to feel better)

my-sing-along-loudly-songs are: "In God's Country," "In a Little While," "Staring At the Sun," "A Room At the Heartbreak Hotel" and "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For"

The Sweetest Thing and I'll belt out With Or Without You at the top of my lungs...sounds more like wailing, but hey..there is a reason U2 makes music and I don't :)

When I'm sad: Stuck in a Moment. It's the ultimate feel-goody song for me.
Sing along to: Pride (in the naaaaaame of looooooove!) or Sunday, Bloody Sunday. Not particularly happy songs, but still quite fun to sing at the top of your lungs.

Sad: Either "Acrobat" (when I'm feeling low about myself) or "Luminous Times" (when I want a comforting cry).

Sing along: Lately, it's "Gone". It's also sometimes "Out of Control".

i tend to listen to Stay, With or Without You, and Wake Up Dead Man when i'm sad.

i sing everything at the top of my lungs, but my favorites for that are Elevation, Pride, With or Without You (it's my favorite), Sunday Bloody Sunday, and I Still Haven't Found what I'm Looking For

when I'm sad - with or without you makes me feel better sometimes, other times it's good to cry to...one is amazing every so often, walk to the water is tear worthy too.

for singing - I went for a walk and sang most of the first best of...pride, with or without you, still haven't found, and streets are good for that. I like singing to the live version of bad, too

Everyone had such great answers!

I just thought of one that none of used - "Two Hearts Beast As One" for one to sing along to.
Oh, how I love singing that song way too loud.
:)


I noticed that "Bad" was a popular choice, too thumbs up to that! that's such a great song to sing along too -- especially live when the whole audience sings *chills*

I'm so glad that there were so many responses - you guys rock!

I've been having a really rough past few days and "Running to Stand Still" keeps drifting through my head.

It makes me feel better and sad all at the same time.
