just another fan....

There are a whole slew of U2 posts out there this week...most of them mention Letterman. (you do know that U2 performs on The Late Show every day this week...don't you?  Bono and Dave together...is this a great country or what?) 

You can find Bono on
Vinny's Couch...in Dad'sHouse...and he'll probably show up in The Ice Box with the Songbird.   But the posts that really shine are with Starlight...she knows her U2.

Dad turned me on to a tribute site which features
the man wearing a necktie and an earring.  I'm especially liking the quote page.  Not to mention he says all this with that incredible Irish accent....sigh....

"You put on the leather pants
and the pants start telling you what to do."

You say you'll give me eyes in the moon of blindness
A river in a time of dryness
A harbour in the tempest.
All the promises we make,
from the cradle to the grave.

"Never trust a man who tells you it's from the heart,
never trust a man smoking a cigar,
never trust a cowboy
or a man who wears shades..."


If you didn't catch Letterman last night...the Top Ten was a riot... I suck at Guitar Hero too....(note The Edge gave his own version of #5....NOT the one written)

The Top Ten Things U2 Has Learned Over The Years

last Friday evening U2 performed from the top of one of the BBC buildings in central London. . . just a stone's throw from my first student residence where my room mate introduced me to their music

That'll teach me for not watching television, huh?

I love U2, it's great when there's a band that both my ancient self and my kids love.

The CEO said...

Rock on, Katherine, rock on

That's one of the funniest clips I have seen in a long time, thank you!

I loved #3! I'm sure the last thing they care about is whether the crowd is ready to rock or not! The "U2: Party of Four" cracked me up, too!

Thanks for sharing this, I would have missed it otherwise and I do love a good Letterman Top Ten List!

Bond said...

I loved The Edge's ad lib...too funny...

That was fun to watch. Thank you for sharing. I loved #2 the most I think.

Blessings to you today.

Glad you love them. They don't do a thing for me. Nothing. Nada. I'm sure that's a crime or something.

Have a terrific day. Big hug. :)

Starr and I listen to music quite differently. I'll leave the reviews to her; I'm working on a different kind of post. That is, if I can ever get it out of my head and heart and onto page.

The video done been removed.

I'm not terribly excited about the new U2 song, but I have to give them props for trying something different every time out.

Even Julius Caesar was a fan. I know this because he said: ``Et tu'' - which when translated, means ``You too'' (or U2) !!!

I gotta get me some leather pants! Ha. That's a great quote you found.

U2 on Letterman rocked. My kids and I watched each show on Tivo. It's pretty awesome that my teens can like the same music as me.

That top 10 is hilarious, with the Edge picking on Sting. But did you catch the next night when Adam (the bass player) described his strings as "long and thick". I cracked up.
