hearing @ 04:08 pm

I'm currently feelin: contemplative bummed

in the past few months i have been having horrible pain that coincides with noise. right now i am in the middle of dozens of hearing tests and audiology appointments to figure this problem out. so far every one thinks it is recruitment. this comes at a horrible time because my first u2 concert is on april 9th. but it will take a whole lot more than hearing problems to keep me from seeing the best band ever.

in both anticipation for the cncert and slight depression from this diagnosis, ive been going over my u2 lyrics, and ive noticed two things.
#1) bono sings alot about seeing, and being blind, and having his eyes opened. too bad my eyesight isnt going bad, it might help me out.
#2)theres a part in "wake up dead man" that i had never noticed before.

Listen to your words they'll tell you what to do
Listen over the rhythm that's confusing you
Listen to the reed in the saxophone
Listen over the hum of the radio
Listen over sounds of blades in rotation
Listen through the traffic and circulation
Listen as hope and peace try to rhyme
Listen over marching bands playing out of time

i guess ive never noticed this because im just floored by the other lyics in the song, bt now they just jump at me and yell "OH MY GOSH!!! LOOK!!!!" especially the reed of the saxaphone and the marching band plays out of time becasue im in the band, and i build props for the marching band, both things i cant do anymore with my hearing problem.

i hope my concert experience will still be great!

It took me a while to notice that part too! I still forget about it even to this day. But then again, I've not been the biggest fan of "Wake Up Dead Man." Not meaning that I think it's a bad song, I mean I'm just not the biggest fan. haha.

Good luck with your hearing tests. I hope everything turns out fine. :)

Wow, that is a bummer.. I've never heard of it (recruitment). i wonder if a mild sedative would help you at the concert?


You are in my thoughts.

I feel for you. You are a very strong person going through this. Don't worry. All of this will make sense later in life. You'll have grown with a great experience and a great wisdom that goes along with this. Every horrible thing in life has a great lesson to be learnt and not to be bitter about no matter how difficult the situation is and I want you to remember that. I'm making this sound confusing but don't worry. Music is about soul and you sure can never loose grip of that.

Love and Peace.
God bless you (you're in my prayers with many people I pray for)

I'm so sorry you're dealing with that now. Listening to U2 really helped me get through health problems last year. And hey, most of them resolved themselves! So I really hope everything works out for you. <3

aww I'm sorry to hear about your hearing problems. <3

I noticed those lyrics instantly because I play saxophone and was in marching band. He mentions saxophones in a couple other songs too. I get excited then too. lol

Eep. I have had ear issues recently too but nothing as bad as that.

I hope it all works out for you and have an awesome time at the concert!!! (am only half jealous I have to wait until December)
