Bowie influence? @ 10:18 pm

I'm currently feelin: curious curious

Does anyone else find something very David Bowie-esque about the Spanish (Portuguese?) backing vocals during the chorus of Vertigo?  It really reminds me of Suffragette City or something similar. Which is a good thing. :D

The biggest influence on this track is U2 themselves. Hear so much of the Boy/UF bits on the track. Played it on my stero speakings yesterday, If that isn't the Neu! hallogallo Riff then I dunno!!!

It's funny how almost every line in the song is reminiscent of some previous U2 lyric. I think Steve Lillywhite or someone mentioned that in an interview recently. Musically it's reminiscent of sooooo many old U2 songs too... how they can do that without it sounding like a complete mishmash, I have no idea!!
