hey all, I have a question/debate discussion. In the issue of Uncut with Bono as The Fly on the cover, the article says that Achtung Baby is somewhat a record about 'sadomasochism,bondage and oral sex'. I see the sex of AB and the dark sex at that, totally and completely, but what do you guys think about these other things? What lyrics do you think show these three things?

Oral sex, yes. Other two... only in the author's mind.

I have always thought theories such as that are utter crap. This is U2 we're talking about here, not some trashy, sleazy band who think with their dicks. I get particularly annoyed when people try to argue that Until The End Of The World is about oral sex. WTF? It's a song from Judas to Jesus! The only explanation I can offer for such interpretations is that people have sex on the brain and take expressions and lyrics out of context.

idk, Into the Heart goes into it as well. The line in Until....."surrounding me, going down on me, spilling over the brim" was brought up as oral sex imagery. Now, that was not the first thing i thought of when i heard that line. I generally listen to the song from the Judas/Jesus or relationship perspective. But the sorta gringy quality somehow fits with the oral sex imagery if you want it to be thrown in every now and then. Even Bono said it hadn't occured to him until it was brought up and I think he was just like, whatever, interpretations, or something like that.

I think it's obvious. Bono's always singing about being down on his knees.

Isn't that why all the ladies love him?

What about this lyric? I'm not trying to be gross, but does anyone else think...?

"And you can swallow
Or you can spit
You can throw it up
Or choke on it"

Or maybe it's just my dirty mind. That's what I always figured.

I put that one down to dirty minds. I fail to see how Acrobat is about sex in any way.
