Vertigo @ 10:22 am

I'm currently feelin: amused amused
I'm currently hearin: Dead Men Walking - Fire Woman

Heard the single for the first time this morning. I like it .. BUT!

A lot of it reminds me of some of the material Coloursound (Mike Peters of the Alarm, Billy Duffy of the Cult, Craig Adams of the Mission and Steve Grantley of SLittle Fingers) recorded and released about 5 years ago.

Has that same harder edeged rock/punk feel to it ...

The bass on Vertigo is a good driving rhythm but reminds me so much of some of Craig's playing in Coloursound.

And Vertigo it's gonna be a number 1 single and the album is gonna smash the rock world if the other tracks are half as good as the lead single on first listen.

i agree that it's great, but i'm not sure it's a true number one. let us not forget, U2 hasn't really had that many number ones.

In UK it only takes approx 8,000 single sales in week to get a song into the "mid" 20's of the charts

And as a first release form a fothcoming album and the airplay it is already getting in the UK on the main radio staions Radio 1/2 nationally then if it doesn't get to number 1 then there is something seriously wrong ...

Gone are the days a single sells a million copies its more like between 25,000 and 50,000 to get a number 1 and if there are 2 cd singles with extra different tracks so people buy both ....
