LMC vs U2 @ 07:22 pm

nicstaru2:
I'm currently hearin: LMC vs U2- Take Me To The Clouds Above

Hey.......was just wondering, for those who have heard it, what do you think of Take Me To The Clouds Above (by LMC vs U2)? Can imagine there will be a complete mixed bag of what everyone thinks....I know of at least one person who detests it! ;oP

I myself am finding its growing on me MASSIVELY! But then I am also right into my dance music, thus this is a nice link between my two favourite music worlds! And being my favourite U2 song thats been sampled and all.
I found this review to mirror my thoughts on the track.


I guess though, if you're not a fan of any of the remixes around recently, I don't think you'll be a fan of this one.

those dance versus things can be really good sometimes. i have yet to hear the track myself, but i can't see how it can be bad. you of course will get the purists who hate to see the boys work "desecrated" or some such, but they are just elitists who have elevated the band just a tad too muc, if you ask me.

i mean, hell, 50 cent vs nin "50 inch nails" was one of my picks for the best track of 2003.

so true. I actually find it quite interesting how you can take a tune like With Or Without Out You and use it as a basis for something thats going to be a popular choice on my dance floor at least. And anyways, U2 actually allowed them to use WOWY!

So long as I don't hear anyone say to me "how can you like it, its rubbish?" I'm into the dance music, of course there is a possibility I'll like it. If you're not into dance music, then chances are you won't.


Haven't heard the 50 cent/NIN thing yet!

i love dance remixes.
Paul oakenfold, apollo440, dj sandstorm, have all done great remixes of u2 songs.

Cool, cheers!  Not a terrible remix but a bit pointless, they didn't do much with it, did they?

Do I share icons?  Erm, I'd prefer not to (I kinda like the individuality)... I guess you can use the Leeloo one if you desperately want to, though!  It might get confusing if two people used the same icon in this community, mind you!

Yeah that's about right. All the remixes right now have that same sound, almost R&b.
They must send all our crap down to you guys, in exhange we Kylie! Not a bad swap I guess. :)

i tell ya, I get confused with the way they label music these days... I mean R&B must be something completely different to you to what it is to us, 'cos the R&B my DJ boy was talking about the other night is nothin like the remixes around!! ARGH! I can't cope! I can never pick what type of music something is. To me its either a dancey track, or a U2 track, or a Coldplay track, or a Kylie track or "something else"....!

Well up here, R&B is pretty much the IN thing. Ye know the Justin Timberland type music, that's R&B. All the remixes like Tpaul etc also get classed as R&B. At least here I find dance & R&B kinda get clumped with the same label now.

I haven't heard it yet, but the person who detests it is sending me his copy. ;o)

I've no idea what to expect. That New Year's Day remix from a couple of years ago was pretty shite, so I don't have high hopes for this either, but you never know... I do like a lot of U2 dance remixes.

I liked it in an odd sort of way.... I kept wishing for a little more u2 and a little less whitney... but that's the DJ in me talking who would've done it differently...

see the thing is.....people are getting this one confused with the one that was originally done full of whitney. This one actually has no whitney, has a few lines stolen from her song, sung by someone else.....and thats it. Are we talking about the same one...?

I hate that remix, I really do. Awful, awful, awful. How did they butcher it so severely?

There's also a streaming clip on U2.com up. I think it's okay. I'm not a huge fan of it because WOWY is in my top three favorite songs of... ever, and I don't like dance/techno/whatever very much, but it's so-so. I think if I lived somewhere where they played it on the radio all the time it might grow on me.

Then again, I might start to hate it. :) Hard to say.
