  1. I never was into the Beatles so it didn't "affect" me the way it did some people, other than it being a needless death. I do find it odd that you listed the death of John Lennon with World Wars, Vietnam, and September 11th.
  2. The video for "Stay" used to creep me out!! It would always come on late at night when I couldn't sleep and was watching videos.
  3. When I think about depressing songs, The Smiths automatically come to mind. Check out "Last Night I Dreamt That Somebody Loved Me".
  4. The greatest rock band in the world.....U2
  5. U2 - How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb First CD I've bought in a long, long time. Usually just burn the ones I like from someone else.
  6. Eggplant

    War Films

    Two of my favorites are "In Country" starring Bruce Willis and "The Deerhunter".
  7. "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)" by U2
  8. Yeah, I saw an article on this earlier today. I'm a huge U2 fan and I can honestly say that I'm not interested in downloading any "rough" demos of the new songs. I'd rather wait until the official CD release. I've waited 4 years, what's two more weeks? Actually I've been waiting on a good U2 CD longer than that. I'm not terribly fond of "All That You Can't Leave Behind". I've probaby listened to it maybe half a dozen times.
  9. "Bad" by U2 Not sure what you're "letting go" of but this is my favorite.
  10. Bono and Frank Sinatra U2 and Johnny Cash Sting and Puff Daddy (some awards show)
  11. As someone mentioned earlier, The Police incorporated reggae rhythms into several of their songs. Probably want to check out their second album "Regatta De Blanc". It has the most reggae-influenced songs on it (Walking on the Moon, etc.) I think the album title translates to White Reggae (someone might need to check me on that though).
  12. Scott, in my opinion you have the only CD's of theirs worth buying so far. I thought "Blender" was terrible. Sometime in the near future, they're going to release another CD on their independent label. Hopefully it will be worth checking out. I suppose "Blender" could have been a token release just to get out of their record contract.
  13. "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)" by U2
  14. Finally, the voice of reason!!! Personally, I think they peaked with Ghost in the Machine.
  15. Great post Carl. Here's a link I found to a thread on a Red Sox message board. It was mentioned in an espn.com article. The postings are about who each person wants the Red Sox to win it for. The thread was started prior to Game 7 of the ALCS. It's now up to 54 pages. Thought you might enjoy it. Red Sox Board

    The video filmed at Red Rocks was called "Under a Blood Red Sky" and it was filmed during the War tour which was 1983.

    I saw Madonna in Atlanta during the Who's That Girl tour. At the time, I thought it was good. I wouldn't cross the street to see her now.

    I'm definitely going to see them on this tour. They're getting on up in age and I fear that every tour might be their last. The last tour I saw them on was Popmart, so I want to go see them again. I believe their ticket prices for the Elevation tour were on par with most other big name acts. They did have tickets designated as the "Golden Circle" which were enclosed by the ramps/runways extending out into the crowd. Now those tickets commanded some serious cash.
  19. I wasn't a fan of it either. It just popped into my head for some reason.
  20. "Can I Borrow A Feeling".... Speaking of burning, here's a haunting song that I've always loved - "I Burn For You" by Sting. The original version can be found on the Brimstone and Treacle soundtrack. There's also "Burn For You" by INXS. A song about second chances that comes to mind is "A Murder of One" by Counting Crows.
