u2_goddess:
I'm currently feelin: excited excited
I'm currently hearin: U2 - Vertigo wanna-be remix thingy....

Okay... major question!

I've finally got ahold of some of the new music clips. Awesome and I can't wait! However, I got this weird techno/guitar, Bono singing song that is labeled U2 - Vertigo, but don't recognize the lyrics. Do they have a remixed version of it already leaked? Has anyone else heard this? I got it off WimMx.

<~AOH

To answer your question quite simply, no, no remix of Vertigo has leaked. Either someone has renamed some obscure old track or uploaded some nonsense or ... who knows what else. Everything that has leaked is available here.

(That said, if I'm proven wrong, I've been asleep for seven hours so I may have missed something.)

Can you transcribe some of the lyrics?  I expect it's an old B-side or something, should be easy to recognise if you can tell us any of the words.

I think I have the song u2_goddess is referring to.

here's the best I could decipher:

Oh dear, what can the matter be
There's stars and stripes raining down on me
My home used to mean so much to me
Now it's nothing
Nightmare out on the streets
Alarm (or Well I'm) broken, shattered and weak
We run from the barrel
But we're dead on our feet

Your ? mistaken identity
Shoot guns 'cause you live in a fantasy
Have you no shame
Are you looking for infamy
Why don't you go and play soldier in some other country

The state of the state (states?) have come away
We're the 51st state of the USA
Put your hands together
Get ready to play
'Cause we're the 51st state of the USA
The state of the state (states?) has come away
We're the 51st state of the USA
Put your hands together
Get ready to play
'Cause we're the 51st state of the USA


Sorry, if that's not the song. I'm pretty certain it is...

Yeppers... that's the one! Now, if I only knew what it was. atu2.com lists some Vertigo Jackknife Lee mixes, and I was thinking maybe it was that. Cause I know my b-sides pretty well, but this I just can't place. Plus the guitar sounds the same as from the crappy recorded version. What say you?

*shakes head*

I can't seem to find any known song that it sounds even remotely like to me.

I'm thinking it may be one of the songs on the new album that has yet to be identified or perhaps just an up coming b-side. *shrug* It sounds too 9-11-ish to be a b-side off a older album.

The instrumental parts make me think of the POPMART tour when they'd be offstage and have that she-male (I think she was) dancing on the screen. Then again, I haven't watched that in a really long time and I could have a screwed up memory LOL

Well, it's not Vertigo and it's not an old B-side either. Is it definitely Bono or just someone who sounds like him?  People have been labelling all kinds of random bands' songs as new U2 stuff...

Yeah... I have downloaded some pretty funny stuff that is supposedly "U2"... haha... But this, I swear, is Bono... and The Edge guitar sound is pretty on. I think it's just some random leaked thing! I wish I could get a clip on here somewhere and have other ppl listen to it. I guess it will remain a mystery for awhile, lol.

I agree, definitely Bono and the Edge!
