Lately I've been watching my best of U2 videos--1980-1990 AND 1990-2000. I honestly love every single one of their videos, but does anyone agree with me when I say that a couple of their later videos (Even Better Than The Real Thing and Mysterious Ways) are a little TOO flashy and hypnotic? Again, I love these videos, but they REALLY hurt my eyes and even make me dizzy--even when I have the lights on. (Talk about "Vertigo" ha ha. Which, by the way, I still have yet to see the music video for. :() Watching their videos might be as harmful as playing video games for long periods of time. Maybe they should put a disclaimer on their VHS/DVD boxes--WARNING: Do not watch videos for extended periods of time, or you may fantasize about making love to Bono, which may lead to sadness and frustration because, let's face it, ladies, Bono is an unobtainable music god. Oh yeah, also beware of seizures. LOL

On another music video note, whenever I watch "Stay (Faraway, So Close)," I think it seems like the people in the video--especially the woman "singing" with the big schnoz--are U2 fans that won a contest to be in the video, simply because they're so average-looking. Contest or not, I think it's awesome that they included average joes in the video. I'm jealous of the woman because Bono looks so gorgeous when he's lip-synching the words near her face. If I was her, I would turn my head ever so slightly and gently press my lips against his...*sigh* lol

I actually did get a little euphoria when I watched the video for EBTTRT the first couple of times. I think that it gets better or at least easier to watch every time you see it.

They made that video for the Wim Wenders film "Stay", the chick lip synching in the video is Wenders daughter.

And I love that Bono comment!!

Made me happy that they looked like normal people, not a casting call...esp. the girl.

OMG seriously I think I saw that on POP-UP VIDEO do you remember that?
*laughs and laughs*

I gave up on U2 trivia. I know that there are millions of people who will always know more than I do and I just have to live with it. ;)

ha ha I don't think I've ever seen a U2 video on pop-up video, and if I did, I'd be singing and checking out Bono and wouldn't be able to pay attention to the little bubbles. ha ha That show was awesome. I had a pop-up video trivia game. :D Is it still on?

...I just popped in best of 90-00 when I sat down to read my friends' page, lol.

I actually usually skip over Ever Better Than The Real Thing. I kind of have to be in the mood for that song. And I definitely have to be in the right mood for the video -- all the "interference" is a bit much for me at times.

Oh, my - Electrical Storm is on now. In all it's insane hotness.

Oh, but I have to disagree with you on Mysterious Ways -- I LOVE that video!!
I'm partial because it's the first U2 vid I ever remember seeing.


And you're definitely right about how it's not safe to watch for too long...
They're such amazing videos, such amazing songs....it can get to be a little too much, lol.

Makes me wish I could just call up Bono and tell him how awesome he is.
