he sang the first verse of 'Seconds'
then all of 'Van Diemen's Land'
and more infamously, 'Numb'.

YES! Omigosh! I was just thinking about this today while listening to the Zooropa album. True, he sings the first verse of "Seconds," which I LOVE dearly. He also does the vocals in "Lemon," along with Brian Eno (I think). And they are so, so beautiful. OMG.

This is off topic, but I also absolutely ADORE the ending vocal harmonies of "Gloria." You should listen carefully sometime. =)

gives me the absolute chills, like it always has, almost 20 years now and it never fails.

I like being reminded of all the Edge gems..

Does Larry also sing on Lemon? I'm pretty sure he sings with Bono, but I can never be sure. I know he did live, though. It's hard to make out voices on the album though.

I think you're thinking of Numb. Larry did some vocals on that (and you can see him singing on the Sydney video).

Actually, I think he does all of 'Seconds'. On UABRS he does only do the first verse, but on the record he sings the whole song, as far as I know.

I think that there is a interview somewhere in which Bono brings up that everyone thinks that it is him singing on Seconds but it actuall sung completely by the Edge and that during live performances Edge would sing the first verse while Bono completed the song with harmonies with the Edge.

*isnt certain though

Yes, that's correct. Edge does the whole song in the studio, but Bono joins in live, probably just to give himself something to do rather than standing around on stage.

Are you sure?  I thought it was *rumoured* that Edge did the whole song, but the truth was that Bono sings on there as well (I'm talking about the studio version). It certainly sounds more like Bono in parts.

I'm agreeing with you on that. The "in an apartment on Times Square" part DEFINITELY sounds like Bono to me. I'm 99.99999999% sure that it's not Edge. The actual rise and fall (pardon the pun) of the voice doesn't sound like Edge's. However, before the second verse kicks in, I think it's just Edge, and maybe some backing from Bono.

Yep, that's exactly the part that I'm sure is Bono!

I'm pretty sure. I remember reading something that said a lot of people were sure it was Bono, and it does sound very much like him, but it is actually Edge.

I'm so confused... so does edge do the whole song or just the first verse... everyone has a different story but is there anything OFFICIAL anywhere that says it... anyone know?

I tried looking on the U2 FAQ website but it doesn't seem to be on there. I'm not sure if there's any official word on it, but I absolutely DO NOT believe that Edge sings the whole song. I'm sure the first verse, maybe a couple of them, are the ones that "sound like Bono but are really The Edge", but at least one verse is *definitely* Bono, the whole texture of the voice is different. And I'm sure I read somewhere online a few years ago that it was a myth that Edge sings it all.... this is bugging me now!

agreed with all the comments.

plus, I have seen him do vocals I didn't really notice before watching the concert videos.

AND, we mustn't forget the cool mellow version of sunday bloody sunday from the popmart sarajevo (and other) concert(s).
