LOST OCTOBER LYRICS FOUND!!! @ 05:56 pm

kjackson:
BIG NEWS from atu2.com:

It only took 23 years, but Bono finally has his October lyrics back. During a speech tonight in Portland, Bono told a Rose Garden crowd that earlier in the day two girls, "Cindy" and "Danielle" returned the bag that had been stolen or lost during the band's first visit to Portland in March, 1981. The bag is said to have contained a notebook with Bono's early lyrics for the October album, although Neil McCormick recently told @U2 that Bono has confessed "there was probably nothing in the notebook." Well, now Bono can see for himself how much or how little had been written down when the notebook went missing.










Whoa.

Wouldn't it be cool if they released songs with the 'original' lyrics?

...Probably won't happen though.

Wow, thank you!

Among other things, I'm 1) rather amused at the mention of the word "pop" here, and 2) rather disturbed by the somewhat swastika-esque "U2" logo that appears here.

the original swastika symbol was actually an indian one meaning life or energy, and probably he was just ddodling, lol.

I saw something about this last night, from someone who was this. Just an utterly amazing gesture. I am awestruck.

This proves that if you wait long enough for something it happens when you're least expecting it.

Jaw: *drops to the friggin' floor!*

I'm absolutely shocked. Did they say how these two girls found it? That is really remarkable.
